Very strong sour fruit smell, smells like stinky. Has a decent hazy golden color, with very little head. Very sour, and very sweet and tart. Decent body. Overall, this one is quite odd. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2006
2000 bottle thanks to Kevin. Clear amber body, no real head. Freeze-dried strawberry, pig shit, grapes, and some acid in the aroma. In the flavor there’s sour apple, the same freeze-dried strawberry, composted grapefruit rinds, and sweet grape underneath. There’s tartness in the flavor but it’s just not that enjoyable. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Thanks Kevin! 2000 vintage. The beer pours a lightly hazy copper/bronze color with a no head. The aroma is strawberries, peaches, and grapes with some notes of barnyard when you let the aroma settle in the glass. The flavor is strawberries, dehydrated strawberry seeds, and is conflictingly sweet and sour. The palate is middle of the road. 7, 3, 7, 3, 13 = 3.3

Ok, so I had this vintage again last week. PHENOMENAL! Nice barny strawberries all around. Near perfect sour palate that worked really well.
Hazy orange/gold body, not much head, just a bunch of large bubbles on one side. Strawberry syrup, caramel, peachy sweet urine aroma. Awkward sweet taste... white grape juice and concord grape skins. Kind of weird. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
Thanks a lot for sharing Mike! Yellow body, with no head to speak of. Looks like a white wine. Sour strawberries in the nose, with grapes, wood, and yeast.Sweet-tart strawberries, grapey, icewine-ish. Dry, smooth finish. A good beer.

bottle. 2002. clear golden with no head. the aroma is surprisingly full of strawberries considering it’s age among a woody earthiness. typical dry flavour though it’s very well counteracted by the sweet strawberries. a little bit of sweetness left in the finish. very tasty and refreshing.

Label says released in 2000, but doesn’t seem to have a date otherwise: Pour is hazy orangey amber with no head whatsoever...seems rather still...smell is horseblanket and straw with some citric tartness and a delicate wisp of strawberry...still mouthfeel, but it suits it...taste is sugary sweet at first...then it turns a little sour, but still some cloying sweetness...seems a touch syrupy, so if maybe it had some life to it that would break the syrup aspect of it up...under-rated it seems... luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Had this at Vail Beer Fest. 2-oz. sample from a snifter. Beer poured a light, murky gold color with plenty of sandy-looking yeast in it. No head. The aroma was plenty sour and heavily yeasty with notes of barnyeard, horseblanket and a tart protein-like note in the back. It’s too interesting to be off-putting, too strange to charm me. There were light hoppy aromas of resin and pine and a moderate note of lemon. I’m not finding any strawberry, though. The flavor begins lightly sweet and moderately sour and bitter and finishes with a short, moderately bitter-moderately sour feel. The palate is medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively. ABUSEDGOAT (2759) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2006
2000 bottle. First Lambic - Fruit ever... after almost 600 ratings... LOL. Clear golden body with absolutely no head, even after I started to pour it violently. Strawberries dominate an aroma that also has some acidity, barnyard and wood. Flavor is the same, sour and tart. Better than the fake Lambic crap I’ve had... can’t remember the name but you probably know what I’m talking about. jonas (7581) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2005
Hazy pink-golden, no head.
Interresting aroma: Strawberries behind a veil of leather, a strong cognacy vinegar note and a mineralic note.
The vinegar-leather-strawberry combo is evident in the flavor as well, horse-blanket, gets more fruity as it warms up - other estery notes, strawberry slips into the background, fizzlesticks in the back of the throat.
Overall light on the palate, light sparkly mouthfeel, dry but not puckering exit.
