COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previously labeled Strawberry Lambic). Made with fresh whole strawberries from Heartland Family Farms in Spencer, IN, Strawberry is a fruited sour ale that showcases distinct fruit characteristics with a mildly tart base sour blonde ale. Light reddish hues highlight the color, with a bubbly pinkish foam. Aromas of fresh field strawberries and pleasant tartness, plus lactic tanginess and strawberry fruit flavors create a refreshing and experiential taste. Finish is very dry, with lingering strawberry flavor. (Previous description) In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole strawberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Bottle shared. Pours very cloudy amber brownish with no head. Aroma of massive tart strawberries, slight jammy and funk. Flavor is heavy acidic, a little too much acid like usual for upland but still drinkable. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

Pours a light pink. Very nice aromas... Strawberries, strawberry jam, lemon, vinegar. As it warmed I got pickle juice and funk. Insanely sour. Lemon juice, vinegar, pickles, strawberries. I can only manage a glass because it’s too acidic for me. But a very well crafted ale

Bottle with thanks to Clownisseur. Gusher on opening. Pours completely murky peach/orange, with a medium fizzy white head that leaves some residual and lacing. Aroma is lemon, fruity, strawberry seeds and stems, oak, some funky basement. Flavor is fully tart, fruity, oak. strawberry is discernible, some funk present as well. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty tasty.

suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Nice reddish dirt colored pour. Small amount of white bubbles. No lacing. Aroma is very sour smelling. Some fruit mixed in with acetone and acetic badness. Taste is horribly sour. Can’t really get much more sour than this. Not much to taste through it all.

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2014
75cl, Batch 3.10 (bottled Nov. 12th 2013), no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with strawberries, thx alot to Vincent for bringing this over!, complex sour fruit brew, sour/fruity and slightly spicy/sweet, yet not balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, nice brew, yet very expensive!

cubs (10746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to a chill bro for sharing. Pours a hazy pinkish orange appearance with a thin head. The aroma is overwhelming full of strawberries and other red berries. Pretty high sourness. Dry, low sweetness. A little bit of funk and lactic notes. Not sure I could drink a lot of this but it is fun in small amounts.
