sarro (123) - 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.

Inbreak (2401) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2014
26.11.2014, 0,375l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Small slightly fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange sweet sour-ish, overripe mountain berries, sweet overripe strawberries, oak, butterscotch, sorrel, berry skin, grass. Taste is slightly sour-ish harsh, overripe mountain berries, oak, berry skin, unripe strawberries, grass, medicine, heather. Medium bitterness, slightly medical mouthfeel. Fair enough.

ClubGonzo (4226) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep orange body with a small white head. Nose is old strawberry jam, straw, bretty stable notes and hints of lemon tartness. Taste is brett stable notes, hay, lemon juice, strawberries and hints of sawdust and red fruits. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Pleasant enough, particularly the aroma, but no great sour experience for me.

ej (782) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Shared bottle with BBGTC. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a struggle between sweet and sour. Sweet berry notes against the bretty sourness. Taste is quite sour. No struggle here. Some berry notes, dried hay and stables. Dry finish. Light body with medium+ levels of co2.

Martinus (3047) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Warm golden colour, white head. Quite wild aroma, cookie dough, overripe fruit, fruit yoghurt. Strawberry flavour, fermenting strawberry, light astringent. Finish strawberry, overripe fruits. Was very curious to this one (I love wild strawberries), but seems like they might not work too brilliantly with yeast.
(From 37.5cL bottle shared @ Procrastinated SpontanGent Tasting. Thanks for the bottles tderoeck!!)

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 (327) - - 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.
