2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, from Holiday Wine Cellars in Escondido. Not sure what vintage, pretty recent I assume. Cork lifts with no sign of carbonation and the beer pours dead flat. Color is a slightly cloudy dark gold. Aroma of wheat toast, orange rind, bitter grapefruit and strawberry. Flavor is bitter citrus fruits, less on the strawberry, with a pleasant funky cheese finish and astringent acidity. Overall not balanced; a hint of staleness on the back end. Maybe I got a bum bottle...I donít know. Still somewhat enjoyable; Ive definitely had better.

Aroma is mostly strawberry jam with some lime in background. Tastes like strawberries but more like dried strawberries than fresh. The strawberry taste is soon overtaken by the sourness. Should have been drier and more carbonated. Pretty nice summery lambic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle sample @ LinkŲping 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 itís 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.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
