Aromas of barnyard, horse blanket and a hint of strawberry. Very tart flavor with a hint of strawberry. This beer was very refreshing. I enjoyed it greatly.

This lambic pours with a golden orange body topped with no head and little lacing. The aroma is tart and sour with a slight strawberry note and a slight barnyard note. The flavor is tart with a slight sweetness and a very slight strawberry note, as wellas, some barnyard. Medium bodied and dry, dry, dry.

The coark is been removed whithout any ’pof’ at all. Orange to golden body, which is quite clear. There’s no carbonisation and head at all. Sweet, sourish (horseblanket) aroma. Moderately sour, lightly sweet initial flavour. Heavily sour finish, which is moderately long. Soft mouthfeel.

This is what lambic brewing is all about ... funky flavors abound! Loads of feet, horseblanket in the aroma -- the girlfriend refused to drink it after smelling it. Mouth-puckering sour with a pleasant back of the throat bitterness. Strawberries aren’t specifically identifiable, but there’s some fruitiness here. A great lambic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 Updated. Much better than when I had it before. More strawbeery presence, much more balanced instead of being sour, and more drinkable. (Old review) This has some pretty crazy flavors floating around. My girlfriend thought it tasted like lemon juice because it had such strong SOUR notes. Strawberry and wood notes are present and nice. Refreshing, but much harder to drink than other lambics I’ve had. Some strong smoked wood notes on the finish. Interesting, but not for me. 6/3/6/4/12

Typical tart gueuze aroma with a very good and pure strawberry smell. Very decent. Hazy, pinkish orange coloured with no head at all. Looks like dirty grapefruitjuice. Not very impressive. Taste is quite sour/tart, very fruity (again those great real strawberries) and wood. Very dry finish.

After pouring the yeast, it becomes a cloudy orange beer, no head, some lacing only. Aroma is weak gueuze, fresh strawberry juice, bit yoghurt cream like. Taste is sharp sour gueuze in the beginning, developing into fresh and sweet strawberry flavor, finishing again with sour gueuze. Very nice to taste a real strawberry flavor instead of the sweet artificial esters they usually add.

Sage, persimmon, unripe nectarine flavors. A ton of wild strawberry in the aroma. Puckering and prickly but rounded.

Bottled, BB 07-08-2018. Hazy orange coloured, totally flat (no head). Very weird aroma, the lambic thing is ok but there's some sweet fruity thing going on i just do not like. Same in flavour. I wouldn't have guessed strawberries were harmed during the making of this brew, but now i read it it makes sense. Totally not my thing.

The aroma is of sweet and sour strawberries with notes of metal and wood. The color is a dark orange and it has no head. The flavor is sweet though sour so the mouthwater starts running. It has strawberry notes on a lovely lambic background which lends itself to a dry woody lambic end. All in all a wonderful flavor in a fantastic beer.
