Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours hazy and deep amber with hundreds of floaties tooling about, and a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is tantalizingly fruity - damp, fallen oak, citric and lactic acidity with tons of ripe, sweet and tart strawberries. Medium-bodied and super creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is acutely sour and fruity, featuring under-ripe strawberries, flanked by a lengthy, über tart, strawberry finish. Big-time thanks to 50 belair for sharing this world-class gem!

Orange-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some strawberry notes plus a good bit of funk and some dry tobacco. The flavor is quite a bit different. I still get some juicy strawberry notes but the funk is gone and replaced by a light bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice fruit beer.

Huhzubendah (3472) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle shared by dreadnaught33. Thanks Yanik! Hazy copper brown body with a small off-white collar. Aromas of strawberries and lacto. Super sour strawberry pour. See what I did there? I’m a poet and I didn’t even realize it. Anyhow, this is tasty.

JorisPPattyn (9469) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2015
Small, fast gone head over hazy orange-amber beer. Red fruit, vinous, lactic acid, wood. Sour, lactic taste with a mild strawberry flavour. Wood, vanilla, oak. Light body, acidburn, long-lasting sour-fruity flavour. Unbelievably good, the description does not reflect its true value.

daknole (10870) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours a deep gold color with a nice white head. Good hit of strawberry up front, nice lactic sourness. Nothing crazy sour, but tasty. The oak is mild but offers up some nice hints of vanilla. Good beer.

Waxed up 750. Fun beer. Kind of waxy jam, can’t tell its strawberry. Very fruit pit aroma. Flavor is just slightly tart, heavy body with jammy essence. Light tart aftertaste.

Tmoney99 (13462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy berry fruit and sour yeast aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice strawberry tart character, acidity, this is crazy drinkable, would work with sour heads and new sour drinkers alike.
