sarro (122) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from WLV Liquors. Pours a clear, light golden color. Nose is horsey, some funk & flint, and some grapey oak. Taste is very vinous with dry white grapes dominating. The wild strawberries are hard to find since the beer is so dry and overpowered by the wine barrel, but itís not bad. A little more sweetness and balance would be better.

tectactoe (1857) - Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle: Murky, bruised orange body with a natural, slightly chunky & mildly foamy head; slow to settle, lasting as a film & collar. Aroma jumps from the bottle as soon as the cap is merely cracked. Earthy, unripe strawberries, more sweet than sour with a mild Pez candy essence to them. Moderate funkiness, critter laden wood, musty cellar, just a hint of winy tartness, & some faint, mushroom-like loaminess. Time/warmth softens the funk & strengthens the sweetness of the strawberry. The flavor is much more acidic & vinous. Sharply tart notes like a Sauvignon Blanc, woody tannins, ripping dryness, lightly acetic lemon, & the softening sweetness of the funky strawberries in the background. Light mineral essence with some underripe stone fruit skins & lactic sourness in the finish. Faint sulfuric note. Funk is toned down, but thereís still some detritus & musty earth-funk in the back-end. Bright, tart, exceedingly dry, drilling the gumline back with each sip. Surprised the ratings are relatively low, I thought this was damn good.

Zekada (136) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle from Mogwai in Helsingborg. Smell is classics lambic of wheat and herbs. It pours amber with a hazy colour and a small white head. A fresh taste of strawberries and wheat. A nice finish whit the strawberries and some hay still present. Overall a really good beer.

hopbag (89) - - JUN 15, 2014
Pretty reddish pale color with minimal head. Others are right about this having some river or cement in the flavor and aroma. Pretty tart and appropriately lambic-ey, but the off flavors ruin it and linger through the finish. There is a faded trace of strawberry.

tderoeck (4690) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2014
24/V/14 - 37.5cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Procrastinated Spontan Gent Tasting - BB: 0?/V/21 (2014-551)

Clear pale orange beer, big fizzy aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very dirty, chemical, rubbery, rotting strawberries, unpleasant. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: yuck! Rotten fruits, dirty, unpleasant, very sour, Iíll just stop here, ok? This is a total drain pour...

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
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.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle @ Steve_0ís 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 (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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 (2652) - 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 (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
hazy gold amber, thin white head, canít 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.
