Yikes, well like their kriek, this one is a wallop of hard acidity, very sour. Virtually no carbonation doesn’t help in keeping that sour whack moving across the tongue, so you get pretty overwhelmed by it. Strawberry is barely detectable, just a hint of berry like fruitiness and sweetness. Color is a dull gold color with no effervescence, no head. A little funk in the background but the acidity pretty much dominates this one. A little hard on the stomach. At one level you wanna like and at another you wanna pour it out. rcweir (139) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Dull amber/orange pour from 375 ml bottle, No head, almost no carbonation. (Maybe a bad bottle) Strong funky/sour aroma, Taste is musky sour strawberry. Mouthfeel is a bit dull without the carbonation, fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Bottle, 2006. Orange body with no head. Pleasant aroma nicely integrating the strawberries into an unusually sweet lambic funk. Flavor is largely mellow with hints of mango joining the more obvious flavors. At times feels like a strawberry-mango juice. Mouthfeel, although very soft with no carbonation and little tart bite, somehow holds up nicely and reveals the more tart, sour notes of the brew right upon the swallow. Very unique overall, right when you think it’s got no zest, it reminds you it is a solid lambic with complexities. One I’d like to try again to get a better sense of. 8-4-7-4-15 Rerate 7/2/08 Bottle, 2006. Aroma gueuze-like, and SUPER funky. Hints of light and red fruits dance in the background, but the funk is the foreward note. At this point in the flavor, only certain traces of the strawberries remain, contributing some tartness but mostly a mildly sweet strawberry tinge. Remains very funky with limited tartness and sourness, although the finish becomes tart, leaving a tarter and tarter impression the more the glass goes down. Despite a dulling of the strawberries compared to my first impression, very enjoyable. 8-4-8-4-16 thewolf (12746) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, BelJohansen]faroeviking (11109) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 19, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow-orange with no head. Aroma is lightly tart, some brett-character, berries, funkiness and barnyard - the strawberries come to the fore, when the beer heats up a little. Low carbonation, and rather oily mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly sweet with only light fruity tartness. Then lots of strawberries hit. Rather dry finish, but not terrible sour.
Bottle. Hazy orange. Sour yeasty bit sweet fruitish aroma. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is surprisingly soft with little sourness, some strawberries, mold, slight wood and sweetness. A rather mild but very tasty fruit lambiek. Thanks BelJohansen.

Hazy golden with tiny head. Aroma is sour with typical brett and light strawberry notes. Flavor is rather sweet with strawberries, grapefruit, wood and barnyard notes. A lot more sweet flavor than my previous experience with this lambic. Grovlam (4252) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle. [Courtesy of BelJohansen, another great session @ yespr] Small bubbly white head mostly diminished. Lovely orange colour with a light golden glow. Spare display of lacework. Aroma of sour strawberries, light woody notes, hint of barnyard and very fruity for a Lambic. Over the palate come citrus, and again light sour strawberries. Medium bodied with a soft carbonisation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet and sour flavour. Light sour strawberries lingering finish. ganache (6031) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Green glass, caged and corked. Big sour nose, tart with just a hint of sweetness. Cloudy golden pour with no head. Taste is too sweet for my conception of a lambic, with almost not sourness or tartness until the aftertaste. Cantillon fans will probably laugh at this gentle effort. Thin, watery body with a nice yeasty component. Notes of indistinct fruitiness and whole flowers. No trace of metal (which I find redeeming). At least I can drink a whole bottle of this with no objections from my body. Probably would have been a hit at certain prohibition-era poolhalls. Well-made if a little effete.

Bottle served with a sourness warning, Cambrinus, Brugge. Customers often complain the beer is spoiled, apparently. There’s a sniff of strawberry Chewit/Angel Delight fruit juice sweetness right on the end, but you’d have to be looking for it. Nose mostly a serious lambic statement of intent. Brilliant, unnatural orange haze with no head and the faintest tingle of carbonation. Nothing like the colour of strawberries, thankfully. Bites with generous lambic tartness, but the flavour softens unexpectedly at the very last into aromatic fleshy fruit. Light years from the sweetshop, and unique.

The beer poured a lovely hazy golden color with no head or lacing. The aroma was slightly yeasty and malty. I did not a definite strawberry notes in the beer. The flavor was slightly tart and very smooth with hints of strawberries and a musk note. The mouthfeel was light bodied and slightly wet. Very yummy though.
