redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2007
great earthy horse blanket aroma, with hints of berries. Pours out light pink, with a thick white head. Sour, lactic yeast upfront, with really good srtong wild strawberry flavor. Favorite of the night!

skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2007
bottle shared with Brie and Mel... Very sour lambic, yet it lacks the barnyard funk. The simple sour flavor works great with the strawberry. The finish is dry and fruity. This was a very unique and memorable lambic. I hope that I can find another bottle of it some time soon.

Strawberries were great and they created a great start to the taste of this beer. Then as it developed the sourness was definitely present. I respect and can dig that. But even so, there was something offensive. It wasn’t the good kind of funk. Had it not had that funk, I would have rated this much higher

MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle, 6% at ’t Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Very funky, acidic aroma, some old cheese and old feet with a hint of sweet fruit. Almost clear copper colour, small white head. Quite flat. Sour flavour with an earthy aftertaste. It is hard to trace, but there is a little sweet fruitiness behind the sourness. A bit vinegary, burning slightly at my throat.

waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2007
bottle. hazy orange/copper pour with no heads. peach, strawberry, sug, alcohol, funky earth aroma. tart, sour, apple, pear, peach. pucker up. enjoyed it better as it warmed. paired it with a meal with ginger and it offered a nice contrast. I don’t know if I could drink this without a meal.

3.7
HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle (375ml). Via trade with Boutip. Clear amber-gold, not much head, just a little bubbly quick-diminishing froth. Lovely funky/sour fruit and yeast aroma, very tart, like unripe strawberries ... but lots of funk, not a girly drink. Taste - VERY sour, acidic strawberry and tons of rubber, lanolin, lemon juice, long acid finish. Watery, no carbonation to speak of but still god life, heavy, heavy acidity and a puckering after-sourness. Very fruity, very funky, very good.

3.5
probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2007
37.5 cL bottle shared with Blair, via Lubiere. Served cold in a flute glass.

App.: Cloudy brown-orange, no head at all. Aroma: Cheese, acid, horse blanket, some strawberries, a bit spicy and leathery. Sweet JEEESUS. Palate: Medium body and flat. Really flat. Flav.: Strong tartness, horse blanket, a bit of strawberry, a gripping bitter finish. Lots like the nose. POWERFUL stuff.

I was kinda hoping that the strawberries would cut the lambic-ness...guess not!! As with the Gueuze, I really haven’t got the palate, vocabulary, knowledge, etc. for a beer like this. I will rate it according to the average to avoid skewing the legit. entries. And may God have mercy on my soul.

Ratman197 (14698) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Bottle poured a clear copper with a red tint and a very minimal off white head. Aromas of apple, vinegar and a hint of strawberry. Palate was light bodied and tart. Flavors of tart citrus, straw, light strawberry and a hint of barnyard with a crisp lingering tart finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Honey gold color with a faint white head. Tart cherry and strawberry in the head with some faint muskiness. Sour head withe ripe strawberry followed by a barnyard finish.

3.8
joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours a fairly clear pilsner like golden with a minimal white head. Slight hints of tart cherry with a hint fo strawberry like sweetness, as well as a good dose of horse blanket, barnyard, and a heavy dose of an apricot like sweetness. Great sour edge with a nice dose of ripe fruit and an abundance of grassy like earthiness. A wonderful lambic that has a tad bit too much leather and horse blanket and not enough tart fruit.
