This unique, refreshing beer appetizer is the result of amalgamating fresh strawberries with lambic during summer.

bb (8557) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. 2000 Vintage (says limited edition, but aren’t all beers). Copper colored with no head. Light fruitiness (berry) and tart aroma with some dustiness - at least it starts out ok. Some strawberry flavor then a harsh tart/vomit/chemical flavor. Just not drinkable. It has a mouthfeel showing some chucnkiness. My guess is a bad bottle, and wow was this one bad.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - OCT 29, 2005
This is probably a beer you either love or hate. I tended to like it. Chalky, berry nose though not overwhelmingly fruity. Gold color with no head. Sweet juice-like tastes give way to a powerful sting of tartness in the back of the throat. It’s like someone is reaching into my stomach and pulling bile up my throat. Very unusual effect. Maybe that’s why I like this. Interesting, sour and unbalanced, really, but in a controlled unbalanced. The brewer’s intent is clear, I think, and overall this works.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Deep orange color, no head. Bubblegum strawberry nose - also a very intense strawberry taste, sour like berry vinegar. Very odd - the strawberry taste wasn+t off my likeing as it tasted like molded strawberries. Dry and chalky finish.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Copper colour. Sour beer, quite nice fruit and a bit of rubber. Nicely sour and intense lambic

seamus77 (31) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - SEP 8, 2005
very pungent nose, tad bit sour and earthy. a pinkish gold appearance with a head roughly the same thickness as a peice of paper. flavor much like the nose, tart, sour, earthy, but little to no strawberry anywhere to be found, save the faintest (though enjoyable) finish on the back of the tongue.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2005
Hazy golden colour. No head at all. Sour, yeasty and fruity aroma with some rubbery notes. Grapefruit, strawberry, bubblegum flavour. Sparkling mouthfeel. Very fruity rasp/strawberry finish. Long aftertaste that just won´t leave your mouth.

Savad (58) - Den Bosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2005
Golden color. No head (lambic !), just fizzy bobbles - no matter how much you jolt the glass. Cask wood in the aroma, strawberry jam, strawberry bubblegum. 9 on the aroma. Would be 10, if it was a bit more persistent. Strong strawberry feeling as you take a sip and hold it in the mouth. And then a burst, a jolt! Cask wood and vinegar acidity suddenly pervades your body. Makes you shiver. Leaves a dry woody mouthfeel.

pilsnerrogge (2827) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2005
Golden amber colour. Almost no head or carbonation. Typical lambic/barnyard aroma with just a hint of strawberries. Tart and very dry flavour with the strawberries being very subtle.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) I would’ve believed that the more subtle strawberry flavours would be completely buried by the tart lambic, but that was fortunately not the case. Initial strawberry aroma, disturbed by some vinegary touches. Strawberry aroma, even sweetness, held completely in check by the sour lambic. But a well made fruit beer. 290602

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 2000 vintage. Pours out a beautiful clear, bright rosy gold. Fantastic elusive, fruity-yeast, multi-layered, fresh sweet-sour aroma with earth and strawberry liqueur. Incredibly complex flavor profile. Assertively sour with a slight sweetness and a pleasant unctuous barnyard quality with spicy grass and hay flavors. Both thin and deep mouth-feel characteristics with a slight metallic edge that rounds out with an exceedingly long, sour finish that hits you right in the salivary glands and sticks in your throat for a full 30 seconds. Highly unusual, Highly enjoyable--even for non-fans of fruit lambics. Cautionary note: I have enjoyed several vintages of this beer and all but a few have been flat. This seems to be the norm--hence the 2 for mouthfeel. If you open up one that’s actually sparkling that score would jump to a 4 or 5.
