4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Bottle. Courtesy of James Daddy. Pours opaque raw honey with a fat fluffy white head. Aroma of strawberry jam, raspberry, and lactic sour acid. Musty and dank. Flavor is strawberry jam with light lemon zest and lactic dryness. Incredibly dry in the finish, but so much strawberry essence and juicy sweetness initially. Astonishingly good beer. Reminds me of a smoother, lighter Allagash Avance. Home run.

Bottle split @ CBC Clerkenwell. Massive thanks to Aaron from BA! This guy killed us with awesome beer. The pourís light amber with a small head. The nose is honeycomb. Nice musty apricot and strawberry tart. Countryside yeastiness. The taste is strawberry fruit leather. A touch of wood. Creamy sweet marshmallow. Only moderately tart. Lovely texture. Nice and bright. Overall, really nice.

Tasted at bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Derek and Erin! Small snifter. Orange pour with nice, foamy white head that lasted. Good lacing. Aroma of fruits such as cherries, strawberries and plums along with funky barnyard. The taste was somewhat fruity sweet with the sourness of the brett, funky, notes of red wine, and tart cherries. Mouth was tingling but smooth. Light body. Refreshing. Loved it!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Bottle from madbeerbaron...thanks Ben! - Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Nose is a bit of plastic, strawberry, and a bit of juicy stone fruit. Lightly sour pale malt...tart and fruity. But the plastic is a bit much. Taste is real tart up front, red wine vinegar, stone fruit, lemon tartness, and a bit of strawberry. Real tart and puckering finish...citric and dry. Fairly thick, with smooth carbonation.

Bottle, 08/11/2013. Pours golden orange, white head, dense ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is seedy strawberry, raspberry, passion fruit and citrus essence, light hay and earthy barnyard must. Taste is tart, juicy strawberries and red fruit, lemon, vinous sangria notes, grassy funky finish. Light, clean bright body, very flavorful. Really nice.

Thanks for the share OmegaX! This beer was almost too good. SO much strawberry-tart in both the aroma and taste. Flavors soft with tannin, oak and slightly acidic really shine towards the end. Simply delicious.

On tap at Whole Foods. Pours a pale golden color without much head. Moderate sourness, a hint of strawberry. Very well balanced crisp sour beer.
