3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle
Iíve 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.

[10/6/13] Bottle at CASK Pub & Kitchen in London. Hazy orange with a beige head. Very nice aroma of oak, lemon, some barnyard and a bit of strawberries. Sour flavor, funky and oaky, with some lemon and strawberry notes. Some citric bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.7 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a thinner white head of foam. Aroma is a funky, musty, earthy tartness. The taste is must and earthy with some fruity notes coming through. Couldnít necessarily tell if it was strawberry had I drank this blind, but the flavor profile is simar. Dry and somewhat floral finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
19th January 2013
Hazy gold - amber beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Medium dry sourness and dry lactose. Just a trace of strawberry. Finishes semi dry and winey sour. Okay if you like that sort of thing but for me this was too dry and one of the weaker members of the spontanclan!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Belmont bottle. We agree to disagree: I swear I taste tons of frozen strawberries and yeast but Matt swears he just tastes straight lambic with a hint of fruit in the finish. Either way, we finished the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sample at local tasting. Poured amber color with an average fizzy white head that lasted with fair lacing. Good tart strawberry & tannic woody aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and flat carbonation. Moderate tart&sweet fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol finish of moderate to long duration. Good beer for style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle (Nordic, Tampere)
Initially a sweet strawberry aroma, but after that theyíre nowhere to be found. Taste is pure lambic. Crisp. Some apricot. Very nice - every sip is pleasant. A good lambic, like pretty much the whole series. The weakness of the fruit lets the lambic shine.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7oz, shared with local raters. Clear orange - amber color. Minimal white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Mmm, awesome strawberry in the nose. Some strawberry shortcake type flavor. Medium body. Crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good, stronger sour taste. Nice white wine barrel influence, nice tannins. Tasty fruit lambic. Nice to try a strawberry lambic, I donít think Iíve ever encountered that before.
