Thanks to jwale73 for the bottle! Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. The smell is yeast, lactic acid, mild fruit. The taste is bandaids, mild fruit, yeast. The body is very light with active carbonation.

Fare thee well Josh tasting at Bruce’s. Thanks to Leighton. Murky gold beer, pinky cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry. Dry minerals and dry yeast. Little rhubarb and a little lactose. Somewhat insipid strawberry. Dry finish. Meh!

Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Cheers to Leighton. Pours murky orange with a small beige cap. Nose is hugely floral and tarty with some light berries and heavy yeast. Taste is tangy, very floral - like lavender, orange juice and more tangy berries. Odd, doesn’t balance well. Just ok

Theydon_Bois (9116) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared at Josh’s Farewell Hoorah - thanks to Leigton, 20/02/14. Murky light orange holding reddish hues and topped with moderate off white spotting. Nose us big on plastic and permanent marker, not great here, strawberry shortcake and rhubarb crumble just peeping through, earthy tones. Taste comprises strawberry chews, lightly tartened strawberry, strawberry wins out over rhubarb in the flavour fight, straw, light spice, very subtle acidic tones - just evident. Light body, fine carbonation with a little prickle, semi drying close. Ok Berliner but far from top draw - the nose killed it really!

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours murky golden - brownish with a medium white head. The nose is plastic, permanent marker, terpene, barnyard, dirt, Rhubarb and cat litter. The taste is wheat, strawberry, soft red fruit, mild sourness, faint sherbet, stewed rhubarb with a grainy finish. Lightish body and fine, prickly carbonation. Very odd indeed and particularly enjoyable.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London to celebrate Josh’s final days. Pours soupy, light gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has lots of dirty rhubarb, mild sweat. Light sweet flavor with shortcake, a bit of strawberries and cream, mild strawberry seed bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweetness to finish with ripe strawberries and cream, minimal tartness, white bread. Pretty basic.

MrChopin (3347) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
murky tangerine pour, thin white ring. Muted wheat and rhubarb nose, straightforward and singular but without flaws. Flavor is more rhubarb at front, lightly sweet but balanced. Mid shows huge plastic, disrupting before the stale papery fruit sweetness finish, sticky and full with decently long finish. Off notes ruined flavor, otherwise singular and solid.

ChinoSkillzian (165) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Tap at GABF. Pours a cloudy orange/russet color with small head. The nose is light plastic that I’ve become accustomed to in beers with strawberry, strawberry seed, slight lacto, some candied lemon peel. The palate is fuller than a typical Berliner, but not sticky, with flavors of unripe strawberry, lemon, sour yeast, and drying acidity.

Bottle #5 from the man, Lukaduke. It’s a fairly enjoyable strawberry weisse with a touch of tart. That said, the melted plastic character is real. Once you identify it, it’s hard to ignore.
