Dunt (316) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle provided by Matt. Pours a rather flat, hazy brownish orange. Nose is ripe strawberry and lightly vegetal. Otherwise, there isnt much going on. Flavor is light strawberry and some yogurt. Its lightly tart with no underlying acidity. Mouthfeel is its downfall. Its pretty watery, no much carbonation very light acidity, and a short finish. Captures the strawberry better than other beers Ive tried, but nothing to really write home. I liked golden canary more in terms of block 15 sours.

Poured into a tulip. 3.25 A: Mildly hazed yellow orange color. Not much carbonation and I didnt really get a head to form. 3.5 S: Balance between acidity and funk. Barnyard funk with horse blanket, hay, and dry wood. Strawberry is there, but only in mild-moderate amounts - gives a nice tartness to it though. Also some wildflower and apple orchard funk. Tangy lactic acid complements the strawberry fruitiness. Pretty good. 3.25 T: Taste for the most part follows the nose. Mix of acid and funk. Barnyard funk listed above with earthy apple orchard. Again strawberry is mild, but adds a bit of tartness. Lactic tanginess. This has the complexity, but its missing depth of flavor. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Could use a lot more carbonation, but its not that big of a deal. Moderately creamy. 3.5 D: Its a decent beer, but theres a lot better options out there. ★ 872 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 15, 2013

Bottle. Thanks jack. This was pretty good. Pours golden with a light rose hue. small off white head. Nose is sweet and tart strawberry, light wood, and booze. Flavor is similar. Much less tart than expected, with the base higher alcohol golden ale kind of taking over. Just found it a bit too boozy. If it was 5% it may have shined brighter for me.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2014
2011 poured from 750ml bottle to glass. Clear amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is big strawberry, vanilla, straw, lactic, peppercorn, slight earthy. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tartness and finishing with a clean slight peppercorn spiciness. Overall this brew is really nice.

Pour is a slightly hazed orangish yellow with a thin white ring. Nose has a fair but of vinegar, faint strawberry, some light oak and vanilla with a touch of musk. Taste is light, strawberry and some oaky barrel. Mushroom funk and fairly tart with a light sour finish and low carbonation.
