Cirrhosis (1215) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 28, 2012
Body appears to be light gold with a slight pink hugh, a tall rocky cap disappears quickly. Heavy sour aroma, big funk, hints of vinegar, candied strawberries and other things of yum. Flavour is big and funky, vinegar, only hints of strawberry. After taste is bitter and reminds me of a old dusty shed. So dry, so very dry. More funk, lots of tart, flavor has depth, complex, easy to slam.

9/28/2014. From bottle. Murky browish orange with a white head. Funky, yeasty aromas with a faint hints of strawberries. Tart and sour, medium carbonation.

slowrunner77 (5983) - 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."

Beerhunter111 (7876) - Hasborn, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Leicht trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit wenig weißem Schaum. Geruch leicht fruchtig, holzig. Geschmack leicht fruchtig, holzig, pelzig, schwach.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - 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 (2042) - 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 (178) - 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 (94) - - 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.

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, I’ll just stop here, ok? This is a total drain pour...

Patrickctenchi (3815) - Cox’s 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 (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
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.
