Werckmeister (3492) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 20, 2018
0,1l sample at home courtesy of Powy, big thanks. dark yellow lightly hazy color, no head (just some whiteish bubbles). smells strawberries, wood, musty, apricot, nutty, love the smell, very very fruity. medium to full body, no carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes strong of strawberries, light apricots, musty, marzipan, nutty, rather citric, some wood. finishes bonedry and rather sour with notes of apricots, strawberries and some wood marzipan notes. wow, very very nice one, very expressive and tasty fruit notes. would love it even more if it was a touch less sour and dry, but overall great one.

375 ml bottle at home, bottled 3.2017. Pours a clear golden with no head. The aroma is leathery and musty with quiet some strawberries, tart berries and mild vinegar. Medium body with no carbonation and a heavy sourness, really puckering but (for me) not in an unpleasant way. The flavor is dominated by the acidity, lots of lemon, sour berries in front of subtle strawberries, leather, wood. Finishes dry and tart with some residual sourness. The high acidity, which I actually like, is a little over the top and overpowers the other flavor and the mouthfeel is not great but beside that issues I like the beer.

alteregoo (1873) - Kalisz, POLAND - FEB 18, 2018
Piany brak, barwa jasno złota, opalizująca. Aromat mocno dziki - stajnia, końska derka, liście porzeczek itd, niedojrzałe winogrono i truskawki w dalekim tle. Smak mocno kwaśny, lekko mineralny, lekko cierpki, skojarzenia głównie z octem jabłkowym. Niskie wysycenie, płaskie, jednowymiarowe.
Ogólnie bardzo kiepski profil i nieprzyjemny rodzaj kwaśności, nie wspominając o braku truskawek, których ponoć było 30%?

mansquito (7277) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2018
One Mile House, NYC tap: hate to break the 888. Pours mostly clear deep gold. Aroma funky, hint of strawberries, vinegar, wine. Taste is sour. Light strawberry taste. Mild but nice aftertaste. Not too vinegary but does give me a hint of heartburn.

Iphonephan (7512) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2018
From a 375 ml bottle. Pours mostly clear copper with a thin off white head. Aroma of strawberry and sour white grapes. Flavor is tart and fruit, with a definite pucker on the finish.

375mL c&c. Have had this a few times over the years but it's been a minute. This particular bottle has no pop and barely any carbonation in the pour. It's not flat but damn close. As I remember it's a bit more of a sour and acetic lambic especially for Hanssens. Though the wild strawberry is pretty awesome. Really separates it from all other lambics. I really wish the strawberry was there but with the geuze. Lots of cork in flavor and sourness sits at the back of the throat. Needs carbonation and less sourness. Light hay Brett is nice.

Served with no carbonation, maybe just a tiny hint. Aroma is amazing, wild strawberry intense and almost perfume like. Just amazing. Taste is light tart, with some light fruity notes not as complex as the aroma. Medium bodied, no to very light carb. 375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. No pop when I took the cork out. Seemed flat, but there was a little bit of a spritz in there. The aroma is creamy and fruity strawberry. Mildly tart and fruity. Medium body and light carbonation.

Free pour to ring in the New Year at Mikkeller DTLA. Orange gold in color with a strawberry toejam aroma. Lactic acidic sour strawberry with some jam and hay notes. Odd but nice enough.
