Bottle from 2007 I guess. Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with no head at all. Smells sour, candy. Tastes very sour. Tarted. Green apple. Too sour for me. Dont think I will finish this one. Low carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

(Bottle sample @ Linköping Beer Expo 2015) Clear orange-gold pour with no head. The nose is a wild combination of rich, cheesy, kind of phenolic funk and fresh strawberry flesh and seeds with a little wood for support. On the palate it’s again got an intense and fairly unique cheese and Brett funky feet character, cloudberry?, sour with sharp lactic acidity, touch of vinegar, wood, and this bright and a little phenolic strawberry flesh/seed character popping out and becoming quite dominant by the finish. Lots of strawberry in the aftertaste. Light body, flat. Unblended lambic I presume, really funky and sour stuff, mishmash of flavours with the strawberry, works much better for me than the sum of its parts. Not sure I could drink tons though.

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, it’s 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 don’t care. It’s 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 it’s mentioned on the label. Carbonationwise it can easily compete with tap water. The taste hides the strawberry aroma sufficient enough that I don’t find it. The taste is mainly and intensely lambicy sour. Pretty awesome beer.

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