COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole strawberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Nocturne (1156) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2015
2013 bottle. Pours out a murky red shade with no head. The aroma has vinegar, strawberry and that kind of musty old closet feel to it. Taste is very sour and there is more carbonation than most Belgian lambics. I like the fruit integration but don’t think the base beer truly stands up.

kermis (6958) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours very cloudy amber brownish with no head. Aroma of massive tart strawberries, slight jammy and funk. Flavor is heavy acidic, a little too much acid like usual for upland but still drinkable. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

cards04 (2341) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a light pink. Very nice aromas... Strawberries, strawberry jam, lemon, vinegar. As it warmed I got pickle juice and funk. Insanely sour. Lemon juice, vinegar, pickles, strawberries. I can only manage a glass because it’s too acidic for me. But a very well crafted ale

bytemesis (4597) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle with thanks to Clownisseur. Gusher on opening. Pours completely murky peach/orange, with a medium fizzy white head that leaves some residual and lacing. Aroma is lemon, fruity, strawberry seeds and stems, oak, some funky basement. Flavor is fully tart, fruity, oak. strawberry is discernible, some funk present as well. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty tasty.

suprchunk (2600) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Nice reddish dirt colored pour. Small amount of white bubbles. No lacing. Aroma is very sour smelling. Some fruit mixed in with acetone and acetic badness. Taste is horribly sour. Can’t really get much more sour than this. Not much to taste through it all.
