A: Deep orange coloured with some light pink notes, no head N: Strawberry, pear, lemon T: Green apple, wild berry, strawbeery, orange zest, lemon O: Nice tartness but a very light carbonation... Aged really well! Olo13 (244) - POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Good beer, nice lambic, but not a lot of strawberries, it is really hard fruit for the beer. teddybeer (3782) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2017
Dark golden color, no head. Aroma has light red fruits notes and barnyard. Flavor with a good presence of vinegar notes and some wooden notes. Dry and acidic final. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2017
12.7 oz. bottle from Louisville Beer Store, mostly to myself (Boo hated it); bottled in January ’15. Aroma: Pretty funky/musty with lighter, overripe strawberry notes. Appearance: Hazy, unfiltered caramel gold with no real head formation or carbonation. Flavor: Starts out lightly funky and flat (both flavor & carbonation-wise); afterwards, tart strawberry swoops in with intensity; tartness does not easily abate; a bit of yoghurt lingers as well. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: I see the promise here, but, as is, this really feels somehow incomplete or diminished. With appropriate carbonation, and a fruited Stilton, I could see this being divine. vipinvelp (4427) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Little hazy yellow, no foam remaining as anticipated. Typical lambic aroma with hint of strawberries. Great sour taste, a beer for warmer day, but this last day of 2016 is also OK. (Velp 201612)

SHared 375ml bottle. Pours a murky bronze with almost no head and little carbonation. Aroma of strawberries and funk. Taste is extremely tart and sour with strawberries and other dark berries. Plenty of funk. And super-tart, sour, vinegary and acetic. darbeer75 (902) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Aroma: lots of funk and some fruitiness; Appearance: hazy brown orange pour with little carbonation; Taste: not very tart, slightly sour and vinegary; not altogether pleasant; Palate: light bodied with short finish; Overall: not sure if it’s the age of the beer or the beer itself, but definitely a subpar lambic. Would not get again. tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours orange with no head. Aroma is ashy, sour and acetone. Taste is lightly sour with acetone and strawberries on the finish. A bit harsh. hawthorne00 (3949) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold, no head. Strong strawberry aroma with some rotting odours, but both are overtaken by vinegar and some bracken and lemon-like funk. Almost flat, quite slippery. Taste is odd but better than the aroma. The lambic is sour and acidic but not as vinegary as feared. And the strawberries just don’t go very well, but they’re not rotting, which is a plus. After a while the sourness was sufficient that I pretty much stopped noticing the fruit, which is surprising because it seemed quite jammy. This definitely improved matters a bit. Not good at all.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, fruit, strawberry, horse blanket and acid.
Turbid golden/amber beer with slight yeast and with no head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, fruit and strawberry; ends slightly dry and sour with horse blanket and acid.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The strawberry works really great, especially with the otherwise regular geuze.
