Orange pour from glass at home. 22oz bottle. It was so tart I had to pour it out. Not saying it is bad. Just not my thing. Tonite. I guess. Meh

Poured from a bottle dated 6/23/2014. Aroma is initially a bit poopy, but as that blows off you get a nice kiwi and strawberry character. Some light floral notes form the hibiscus. Some moderate wheat notes and a light berry character. Light citrus and moderate acidity. Pours a slightly hazy bright golden color with a hint of a pink hue and a small, thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. No lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a moderately strong acidity with some lemon and citrus acidity. Finish has a light sweetness with a moderate strawberry and lighter kiwi note. Some medium light floral notes. Some lingering strawberry notes. Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a surprisingly nice beer. i don’t know if the early batches had problems, but this turned out well. Nice strawberry character without any odd phenolics. Kiwi and hibiscus contribute nicely.

23.06.2014 & 22.07.2013 Vintages – 2 * 750 ml. sampled @ Maldegem tasting. Thanks to Mathieu87 & PriorL. Two completely different beers. Hugely so, they even look different. 2014 one is orange / yellow with not much in the way of head. Nose is big lactic huge fruit, kiwi, exotic fruit, pineapple, hibiscus,… Taste is big lactic, mandarin, orange, hibiscus, very puckering but hugely fruity as well, light strawberry,… Puckering lactic body,… Awesome, hugely fruity,… 4.7/5. 2013 Vintage. Dark amber, little head. Nose is amber, caramel malts, light strawberry, caramel,… Taste is mucky lactic caramel, puckering, light strawberry, sugar, not terribly expressive,.. Puckering caramel malt body,..; Not on par with the 2014 Version but still quite nice. 4.2/5 -> 4.45 on average. Going to going to round it to 4.5/5 on strength of the 2014 version.

umich03jm (2700) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. About a year old. Clear amber pour with a small fizzy head that fades to nothing. Aroma is big strawberry, flowers, some light musty funk, and light kiwi. Tastes awesome. Moderate sourness, moderately tart. Tons of strawberry and kiwi (because I was looking for it), light juicy lemon, moderately acidic, some vinegar, and just a nice hint of sour funk. Medium body. Very easy to drink. Awesome.

Homer321 (2614) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Nose is fruit and tropical. Very clear orange with a small white head that dies immediately. Taste is initially very sour with a mouthpuckering aspect to it. fruitiness comes through mid palate with a slight sweetness. Finish is very dry and acidic. Strawberry and kiwi come through as you continue to drink, but I’m not getting any hibiscus. very good, but the sourness is clearly the focus here.

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a pinkish hue and minimal head.

The atom aid strawberry, lemon rind, floral notes, some yogurt twang and a little barnyard funk.

The flavor is tart and lemony with some strawberry and light floral bitterness. It’s fruity but dry with a nice bit of sourness throughout.

Fun, sort of weird at times... but good.
