drewbeerme (3919) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2006
375ml bottle. pours a golden hue with no head, very lightly carbinated. aroma is mainly acidic sourness, with some very faint strawberry and raspberries in there. mostly just sour. flavor is mainly sour with a hint of strawberries, raspberries, and bandages in the aftertaste. clearly ot a well made lambic. I thought this was an unblended gueuze cuz theres very little fruitiness to this. in enjoy the sourness but its just not very complex at all.

Bottle. Darker than Hanssens Oude Gueuze but no head at all. Very sour, a bit too much for me! Very low fruit taste.

Label on the bottle said 750ml. It was significantly smaller, but who knows? Unfiltered and dull golden hued. Sour vinegar aroma with a nice subtle strawberry note. Tart and medium bodied. Strong astringent flavor. Good, but not the best. Although it is my first strawberry lambic.

Crazy lambic aroma. The taste and aroma are that common horse blanket theme of these beers. The strawberries arent too evident, but this has got a great tart bite.

BeerandBlues2 (12752) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
375 mL bottle received from boutip. Pours a lightly cloudy and hazy orange with spare white fizzy head, completely diminishes with no head. Aroma is very intriguing and inviting, true traditional lambic; average malt (bread, roasted, meal), heavy hops (citrus, lemon), light yeast (earth) with notes of cherry, raspberry and cask. Green apple and tart, mouth puckering green fruit (strawberry, raspberry) flavor, heavy lemon tartness, long duration, light sweetness with heavy acidity and bitterness, some saltiness. Light bodied, oily texture, flat carbonation and astringent finish. Nice brew, thanks again Phil.

375 ml bottle shared by jerc from Inertiaboy. Hazy orange colour, no head. Lightly acidic and dry yeasty, cobweb, and leather aroma woth fresh wild strawberry notes. Initial sourness and lovely lambic funk gives way to light wild strawberry sweetness, then finishes with more pleasing tartness and acidity. Light bodied, refreshing. Many thanks Inertiaboy and jerc for sharing!

This is a very nice lambic, and a very nice "starter" lambic if you are trying to expose some people to one of the greatest beer styles out there. Is the aroma funky? Yeah, it is but its not so far funky that will turn someone away. Its got the barnyard, old leather going but its very tame. Appearance is a light reddish/pink color with a fizzy head. To say the mouthfeel is puckering is accurate, but again its not so where it might turn someone away. Flavors are a nice blend of sweet strawberries, acidic, tartness as well as a bit of funk. I liked this and will buy more for other people to sample. Its an eye opener for sure.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle at Delirium, Brussels. Has the Hanssens house fingerprint all over it. Didnt pick up so much of the strawberries at first but after comparing with a straight gueze they were definitely noticeable. I enjoyed Hanssens gueuze and the strawberries in this worked great.

jercraigs (10201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Inertiaboy. Hazy amber headless body. Powerfully acidic aroma u-turns to sweet strawberry. Bone dry acidic flavour with strong bacterial character. Strawberries are hard to pick out past the sourness. Average palate. Decent, but a rough ride for non-lambicheads. Thanks for sharing Inertiaboy! .

Bouteille verte de 375 ml, avec bouchon de lige, obtenue via Importations Prives Biropholie. Arme: Odeur de fraises et de vinaigre. Apparence: La couleur est ambre lgrement voile. Saveur: Le got est trs acide. Personnellement je nai pas aim du tout. Dure moyenne de larrire got. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Forte effervescence en bouche. Prsence de vinaigre en arrire got. Aucune ide si la bouteille tait contamine ou bien si cest moi qui pas vraiment aim ce lambic. (Rating #743)
