Taste is sour and fruity with wood, vanilla candy, wild strawberries, strawberries, lemon juice, red hard candy, horse blanket, grapefruit peal, dry yeast and hay.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
