Bottle: Pours cloudy, orange-amber with a short, foamy tan head. Strawberry soap aroma. Taste is dried strawberry, vinegar.... I get the same rubber/plastic flavours as well as previous raters.... Not very enjoyable.

Bottle @ Steve_0’s palace. Pours a murky orange appearance with an off white head. Bright strawberry, wild berry, slight rubber, twangy nose. Pretty fucken juicy. Chewy plastic, rubber flavor. Some good aspects but boy, the rubber is annoying. Disappointing.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour strawberry, tart fruit into a bit of vanilla, oak, slight rubbery, plastic notes, nice seedy, earthy notes as well. Taste is a mix of sour fruit, slight strawberry and earth, slight plastic into more strawberry, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

Steve_0 (2229) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is hazy orange with a small white head and good lacing. Rubbery, biscuity, band-aid, lemony, vanilla, lactic, red berries, and oak in the aroma. Taste is rubber cement, glue, concrete, grassy, skunky, strawberry, ginger, and lactic acid with a big sour finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Definitely the worst of the series.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
hazy gold amber, thin white head, can’t see any fruit. Husky nose, moderate tangy strawberry, considerable sweetness and plastic. Heavy strawberry and plastic up front, tons of rubber, light acids brighter finish but a mess.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 3, 2014
375ml bottle pours a hazy orange with thick white head. Nose has a lot of funk, berry, hay, grass, band aid. Flavor is more funk and jam, berry, band aid, light acid, light cheese. Really nice.

jbruner (1959) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is funky sourness and tannic wood with slight sweet fruitiness underneath. Taste is less funky and more sweet, light strawberry notes with breadiness. Bubbly carbonation, refreshing and light. Very nice, but wanted a but more.

I’ve not yet tried any of these lambics from Mikkeller but it looks like another solid experiment. Chances are I will only cherry pick a couple because of the price but based on this sample none should be disappointing.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy orange base has wisps of ivory head that sit lazily in the glass. The fruity feel is like a sample sized pour of vinegary strawberry shortcake. The lactic notes are balanced enough to not feel like a one trick pony.

Flavor / Palate - Strawberries and cream taste like a liquid dessert. Vinegar and cool whip scour the palate clean. The experience is enjoyable from start to finish although not so awesome that I want to hurry to the Louisville Beer Store and get the whole series. However one or two along the way would be a nice way to keep in touch with what Mikkeller is up to these days.
