morangochris (19) - Budapest, - MAY 15, 2011
Ive tasted this beer during the "Toer de Geuze 2011" at the brewery. Wow, thats probebly the best appetizer Ive ever tasted. Despite thats a strawberry beer, the colour is like a lambic, slighly darker. But the aroma of the strawberries are in your nose when youre pouring it out. And the smell is about "real" strawberries. The taste is like a real lambic and the aftertast, the full aroma of the strawberries are there again. when finished the bottle, I got the taste that Ive eaten a bowl of fresh strawberries. Im a lamic lover and a strawberry lover, gosh, lovly combination. Fanastic beer as an apero or hot summer night,

Good beer, nice lambic, but not a lot of strawberries, it is really hard fruit for the beer.

wombat23 (973) - Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2017
SHared 375ml bottle. Pours a murky bronze with almost no head and little carbonation. Aroma of strawberries and funk. Taste is extremely tart and sour with strawberries and other dark berries. Plenty of funk. And super-tart, sour, vinegary and acetic.

MelvinKalksma (1233) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, fruit, strawberry and vinegar.

Appearance:
Turbid golden/amber beer with slight yeast and with no head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts slightly dry and sour with vinegar; ends medium sweet with malts, fruit and strawberry.

Overall:
This beer ia rather intense, complex and balanced. The strawberry works really great, but I have no idea where that god awful vinegar comes from.

vipinvelp (4074) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Little hazy yellow, no foam remaining as anticipated. Typical lambic aroma with hint of strawberries. Great sour taste, a beer for warmer day, but this last day of 2016 is also OK. (Velp 201612)

hawthorne00 (3668) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold, no head. Strong strawberry aroma with some rotting odours, but both are overtaken by vinegar and some bracken and lemon-like funk. Almost flat, quite slippery. Taste is odd but better than the aroma. The lambic is sour and acidic but not as vinegary as feared. And the strawberries just dont go very well, but theyre not rotting, which is a plus. After a while the sourness was sufficient that I pretty much stopped noticing the fruit, which is surprising because it seemed quite jammy. This definitely improved matters a bit. Not good at all.

teddybeer (3592) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2017
Dark golden color, no head. Aroma has light red fruits notes and barnyard. Flavor with a good presence of vinegar notes and some wooden notes. Dry and acidic final.

darbeer75 (705) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Aroma: lots of funk and some fruitiness; Appearance: hazy brown orange pour with little carbonation; Taste: not very tart, slightly sour and vinegary; not altogether pleasant; Palate: light bodied with short finish; Overall: not sure if its the age of the beer or the beer itself, but definitely a subpar lambic. Would not get again.

Sample @Hiisi hq. Pours cloudy yellow with low head. Aroma is Dijon mustard, strawberry jam, vinegar, solvent. Flavor is totally messy.

ContemplateBeer (2041) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2017
12.7 oz. bottle from Louisville Beer Store, mostly to myself (Boo hated it); bottled in January 15. Aroma: Pretty funky/musty with lighter, overripe strawberry notes. Appearance: Hazy, unfiltered caramel gold with no real head formation or carbonation. Flavor: Starts out lightly funky and flat (both flavor & carbonation-wise); afterwards, tart strawberry swoops in with intensity; tartness does not easily abate; a bit of yoghurt lingers as well. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: I see the promise here, but, as is, this really feels somehow incomplete or diminished. With appropriate carbonation, and a fruited Stilton, I could see this being divine.

tommann (3494) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours orange with no head. Aroma is ashy, sour and acetone. Taste is lightly sour with acetone and strawberries on the finish. A bit harsh.
