Golden orange in colour, no head, no lacing. The aroma is very acidic, very minor strawberries, quite sour, light cheese. The flavour is very tart and sour, highly acidic, some fruit, again only some light strawberries and a brief moment of sweetness. Very sour mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes very long with a high sourness, rather puckering. This is a very sour lambic, along the lines of Framboos and Rose De Gambrinus but nowhere near as drinkable.

375ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>Larry Pitonka, thanks Andre.
Opened on April 16, 2007.

thornecb (5851) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours deep gold into a Tumbler. No head. Strawberry and mild funk aromas. Slight tingly sweet strawberries upfront which quickly turns to cheesy lambic and then back to a tart strawberry.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange color with a small ring of lace. The aroma is sour and funky, theres a fruityness to it but I wouldnt have guessed there were strawberries in there. The flavor is very sour with belgian funk and fruits. The body is light with a dusty texture and low carbonation. Interesting but not on par with the quality of the Oude Gueuze and Oude Kriek.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2007
Clear golden with no real head. Aroma of strawberry jam and a touch of funk... perhaps a little too simple and fake for me. Medium body, mild acid tartness and a strong strawberry flavour... again its just too jammy and fake. Light barnyard finish redeems it a little bit. Pretty solid overall.

Sampled at the 1st annual Stone Sour Festival 2007. Nice sweet sample to balance out the sours of the day.

kramer (6609) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2007
375 ml bottle, via dsnowden. Pours a cloudy peach-orange colored body with just a few large fleeting bubbles of head. Very slow lazy visible carbonation. Aroma is very gueuze like with a fruity sweetness like peaches or apricots more than strawberries. A good amount of musty and moldy cellar funk below. The drying acetic vinegar flavor grabs me right away. Theres some fruitiness there, but I really couldnt tell what it was, having not looked at the commercial description, my guess was apricots actually. Very dry and dusty moldy finish. Mouthfeel is fairly dry with a moderate acetic bite up front. Watery in texture with just very minimal carbonation. This is really much better than you might expect from a strawberry lambic. Hanssens makes the real deal.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Sampled at Stones Sour Festival, July 2007. Comes out of the bottle golden with no head. aardbei aroma is strong, but the flavor is dominated by a healty nose of sour lambic. Thankfully the sweet berry adds a nice foil

Bottle--5th brew of Stone 1st Annual Sour Festival, July 22nd 2007. Shared this cool day very mellow day with bikesandbeer, wetherel, westsidethreat, padrefan, fordest, denverlogan and many others. Pours clear copper orange with a ring of a head. The aroma is light but very clearly strawberry, really amazing nose, gotta love the real strawberry smell in this beer. Taste is tart strawberry with a really well balanced mix of flavors. Kudos Hanssens.
