UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Vibrant orange body, yielding no head or carbonation at all... Oily looking, almost like a still mead. Aroma is lovely with notes of strawberry, sweet & almost candy-like. Hints of barnyard hay & lightly sweaty funk back up the strawberry fruits. Wow - the first sip is unexpectedly sour. Incredibly sour, puckering... Aroma smelled more sweet, but the taste is all sour. Loses complexity... Less strawberry & funk, more of a lactic, lemon flesh & sweettart sourness that rips through everything. Very timid strawberry & musty funk in the finish, but the acidic notes tower over everything. Moderate vinegar throughout. Flat, oily mouth feel, really wish this was carbonated better (or at all). I love the ripping sourness of the beer, just wish it maintained more of the complexity of the strawberries & funk on the palate. Appearance/body hurts the score, this would be better with proper carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is strawberry seed, funk, oak. Similar flavor to nose, the funk is amazing in this, really enjoyed this.

Small bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of strawberries, some tartness, pale malts, hints of spices, and more fruit. Flavor has a lot of strawberries and a nice blend. Sort of lacking carbonation. A cool beer with a nice strawberry flavor.

Tart berry aroma. Hazy orange color with no head whatsoever. Kinda flat. Starting to think I got a dud. Super tart with a cough syrup consistency. I dunno, itís alright.

Helder geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur met lichte aardbei ondertoon, erg droog. Helaas niet bijzonder wat mij betreft.

Ruikt scherp zurig, licht naar aardbeien. Amber, appelsap kleurig. Smaakt zuur, aardbei op de achtergrond. Tintelend volle smaak. Lievelings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle share with King_Alex_II. Orange color with no head. Aroma is funky, lambiclike, maybe some subtle strawberry, but they are really just hinted at. Wood and staples just like it should be. Taste is woody, sour, apples and lemons, again... Strawberry? Hard to detect, but I donít care. Itís a fine Lambic. Very sour, but I like it like that. In the aftertaste, again, a sweet hint of strawberry. Flat carbonation. Awesome!

It looks like ice tea lemon. It smells like sour beer with hints of strawberry, you recognize because itís mentioned on the label. Carbonationwise it can easily compete with tap water. The taste hides the strawberry aroma sufficient enough that I donít find it. The taste is mainly and intensely lambicy sour. Pretty awesome beer.

Flaske 330ml. KjÝpt sammen med og delt med Rune pŚ Rundvannet 18 Des 14. Gylden. Litt uklar. Lavt skum. God fruktaroma. Smaken sammensatt av syrlig frukt. God - men litt endimensjonal.

Bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Nice big funky aroma, dusty and sharp. Similar taste, standard lambic funk, on the sharp side. A tiny bit sweet and the strawberries are mild. Nice
