tricksta_p (1429) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2015
Aroma of strawberry, funky notes, sugar, hint of tart fruit. Flavour is heavy sugary sweet and light tart. Too sweet and sugary for my taste.

Bottle @ White Lion, Heptonstall. Hazy orange-red with next to no head. Has a small carbonation and a soured strawberry flavour its evident. Nice enough lambic.

Hazy, orange brown. Small white head. Strong, sweet strawberry jam aroma. Flavour has more strawberry with a caramely, malty background. Fluffy mouthfeel, only slightly acidic. Sweet, semi sticky finish.

Jimsal27 (264) - New York, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Tap at yard house. Hazy rose color with off white head. Aroma is strawberry. Taste is sweet strawberry with a tart finish. Very carbonated. Reminds me of a strawberry soda.

LinusStick (2901) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Meh. A waste of a bottle. I love fruit beers and fruit lambics, but the lack of carbonation in this beer made it feel like I was drinking flat strawberry juice. The lack of any "pop" when I pulled the cork off was a dead giveaway. Aroma was nice. Strawberry Starburst with not much else. Pour was a flat headless, bubbleless dark gold. Taste was nice and big with huge juicy strawberry flavors. The problem was it was completely flat. Not a hint of carbonation. With just a hint of bubbles this would be a good, if not basic, fruit beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/30/2012. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lightly tart strawberry, strawberry jam/candy, hay, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with big notes of sweet strawberries and some light yeast and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lightly tart strawberry, strawberry jam/candy, hay, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of big strawberries, strawberry jam/candy, hay, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice robustness of big sweet strawberry flavors with some light yeast and earthy hop notes; with minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected for 4%. Overall this is a really solid standard fruit beer. Nice robustness of big strawberry flavors with light yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. It really doesn’t fit the Lambic style profile very well at all; but as a standard fruit beer it is quite enjoyable, as long as you don’t mind the sweetness(which wasn’t that bad in my opinion).

Cenzura (158) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Aroma: strawberry juice, very refreshing. Taste: sour but sweet strawberries, very refreshing like orangeade. Low carbonation, poor head and average lacing.

slowrunner77 (6164) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"as advertised...strawberry and not a whole lot else. there’s a nice interplay between sweet and tart, but it’s all strawberry. not subtle at all...if you’re a strawberry lover, this will be mothers milk."
