UPDATED: FEB 10, 2008 Bottle. "Limited Edition Year 2000." Very sour nose. Not a hint of strawberries. Lots of barnyard, hay, straw and horse blanket. An odd mix of smoke, peat and salt as well. Pours flat and oily. No head. Oddly earthy and peaty on the palate. Minerals and gravel. Again, no strawberries. Loads and loads of oily funk. This beer truly stinks.. in a good way of course.

Hmmm, looks like some people didnt know what they were getting and promptly bash a fairly nice beer. Pours lightly hazy orange with minimal sized head. The aroma is sour, vinegary, sharp and tart. There is also light fruit and bits of wild yeast. Medium crisp grainy body with very little carbonation. The flavor starts with husky sourness, very light fruit that makes this almost a gueuze, citric acid and earthy wild yeast. The finish is softer and mellower than most lambics. This is quite a nicely crafted lambic.

Its too sour for my taste, a slight whiff of strawberries. The taste is lactic sourness and hint of strawberry sweet. thin body

The aroma has strawberries, wild funk, and sourness. The appearance is cloudy copper gold with virtually no head. The flavor is like the aroma and not good. The palate is thin and flat. This is just not my thing and no amount of strawberries will save it.

Bottle (0.375l): Deep golden, small and stable lacing head; cellary, musty nose with a touch of "Brett"; solid sour flavour with some sweet illusions, light bodied; a taste of srawberries detectable in the heartburning-sourish finish. This is the real thing for purists......

37.5 cL. Pours a thickly cloudy orange with a few big bubbles on top, and since the mouthfeel is also flat Id swear this came from a cask. Aroma is sour, fruity--lemons with strawberry notes--and only slightly musty. Those fruits are big in the flavor, which is quite tart. Again, lots of lemon and grapefruit with just tinges of strawberry. Maybe lacks some funkiness. Somewhat thick and flat mouthfeel, not acidic, not very dry either. Strawberry is more noticeable in the aftertaste. Reefreshing and pretty interesting.

On bottle at the bear festival at Mechelen. A very nice tasting lambic beer. Some sweet flafours but still sour.

I really like this color. Crystal clear light orange color. Aroma of cooked strawberries, acidity, and just a little bit of lambic funk. Flavor is tart but nowhere near a Cantillon. Flavors of strawberries, citrus, must. This is cool, I wouldnt mind some other blenders making strawberry lambics.

Robe orange voile sans mousse. Armes acides de fraises, de malt et de ferme. Saveurs acides de crales.

TA most pleasant lambic, not sweet and only a bit on sour, vinegar side, dryish. The strawberry comes out, its something special.Pinkish tinge. Appropriate carbonation.No head. Goes picnic lunch well.
