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 it’s not bad. A little more sweetness and balance would be better.

radiomgb (2313) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Orange, thin lasting white head, good lace. Aroma of barnyard, leather, markers, fruity sweetness. Flavour is quite acidic and tart, some fruit sweetness. Dry mouthfeel, light body, high carbonation. Finishes long, acidic. Pretty nice, so tart. Very enjoyable.

graham_murphy (322) - - OCT 29, 2014
Very sour, bitter and tart. Lots of sharpness from the hops. Doesn’t have the strongest taste of strawberry (in comparison with the kriek and framboos) but it’s not bad. Couldn’t have more than one. Intense taste.

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"A little more sour and a little less fruit than the kriek. Redish gold. Big funky vinegar aroma and flavor. Dry and lacking sweetness, and the strawberry takes a backseat to the tang. Not bad, but a little pricey for just a "good" beer. One timer."

Koelschtrinker (10951) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Bitterer Beginn, der die Fruchtnoten überdeckt. Die Erdbeeren sind deutlich erkennbar, das Bier ist adstringent. Zum Ende hin nur noch bitter, nicht wirklich gut. 10/7/6/7/7/7

tectactoe (2173) - 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 there’s 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 (228) - 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.
