3.63/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Hazy burnt orange with a small white head.

S - Moderate funky yeast upfront, apricot, peaches, strawberries.

T - Acidic tartness, lemons, old grain, basement funk, peaches and strawberries in the background aren't as detectable as the aroma. Old strawberry candy sweetness. Finishes tangy with tart lacquer, and acidic lemon strawberry.

M - Moderate carbonation, medium weight, creamy full feel.

This a funky mother. There's a lot of odd and semi-off putting flavors going on. It doesn't quite come together. Some age should do this well.

A: Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head.

S: Funky Belgian yeast and a decent amount of strawberry in the nose.

T: Tart, lemon, orange, citrus peels, a touch of strawberry, some spices. Quite tasty.

M: Medium bodied, just enough carbonation.

O: I really like the admixture of strawberry to the wild ale style. I think it can be done better,but this as definitely tasty. Recommended, especially if you want to try the style.

375 ml bottle @ home // purchased @ De Hopduvel // 7.7 % (quite strong for the style) “lambic” with wild strawberries // I am still curious as to how De Proef is making these Mikkeller “lambic’s” // are they actually wild fermenting them or are they adding souring bacteria’s in order to get the desired flavours? // I am willing to bet it is the latter // love wild strawberries, remember eating them as a little kid in Kiev where they are sold on the streets, don’t see them here, I miss them // remember also finding them occasionally in the Black Forest on holiday // they are way more delicious than the ones you can buy in the supermarket / market here // green bottle // only cap, no cork, a bit odd in a way label is similer to the others in the series, bunch of pinkish & strawberry coloured, irregular, abstract circles //BBF date 10/05/2022 (wow +10 yr.?) // damn it, this is a gusher, not a big one but a gusher never the less // the mouth-watering smell of musty, funky barnyard fill the room // appearance is darker shade of orange, especially for still, head is only on the sides, minor lacing, ok for a “lambic’ beer, these don’t have to look picturesque // smell is terrible frankly, close to revolving, straight up manure, this is way too barnyard, crazily plastic smell when warmed up, rotting / synthetic, feet, fermenting cheese, really fermenting / gone bad fruits, melting plastic, this is not good, I am scared, this will be either really good or really bad & why, oh why? Do I keep smelling this, this is not a habit, I think I am doing this voluntarily // ok, taste is more manageable, this is not really how this is supposed to be, burned plastic notes + thick plastic, plastic lemons, acidic, thick hay, herbal, touch manure, rotting wild strawberries, bitter herbal, sweet strawberry finish, sourness wise this is actually quite mild, plastic fruits finish, seriously why am I picking such insane amounts of plastic in here, I am burping plastic here, manure, this is not barnyard, this is compost, bit like liking the mould of a wet wall, there is a lot of mould in here, not easy to drink from my glass because I am really sticking my nose into this which is a bonus in a good beer but not so sure here, this really takes some getting used to it, you sort of do, I want an Oudbeitje now, Oudbeitje’s are great because of unintentional additional infections, which one doesn’t have, this is very controlled as is everything that Proef does // body is more substantial than a regular “lambic”, plactic-like with that touch off turning begging carb. // this is harsh & this is not my first lambic, I sort of got into this but man this is messed up, don’t think that I would really recommend this // I did actually manage to get into this & now I am worried, very, very worried // I sort of wished for the bottle to be bigger // f*cking hell I am way too far gone and so is this beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a tangerine color with slight off-white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell is hint of strawberry with lots of acidity. There is a floral component too, like honeysuckle or wisteria.

Taste is tart but not overpoweringly so. Hints of strawberry present. More bitterness than I was expecting.

Mouthfeel is prickly and effervescent. More carbonated than I expected given the amount of head present.

Overall this was pretty good and worth a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle again shared by Chico. Reviewed from notes.

A- Dark golden-amber muddy looking body. Small foamy white head with a fizzy texture and poor retention, similar to many Wilds. No lace in sight after it all falls down to almost no foam in sight.

S- Fairly nice strawberry but a lot more going on that detracts from this. Oxiation, wine and some band-aid aroma throwing it all off for me. Half strawberrry, half odd things.

T- Strawberries at first again but as Chico described it nicely, it's like eating the fruit with the leaves and plant attached, something earthy and reminiscent of bitter plant stems. Oxidation, band-aid and a vinous feel. Nice sour level.

MF- A bit less sour than the Framboos for me. Foamy dry light-end body. High end spritzy carbonation and a somewhat strange bitterness throughout.

Some evident off flavors that seem to switch on and off with a pretty good strawberry fruit sourness. Strange beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tried right after Spontanframboos.

The pour is hazy peach-orange with a white head, a thick and partial cap and some lace is left by the end. The scent is weird with a mix of funky pasture/farm, possible off-flavors (band-aid, plastic), strawberries, leafiness. The fruit comes out more with warmth and just adds to the oddness but it is interesting.

Taste is similar, authentic strawberry flavors complete with seedy and leafy flavors. Kinda like biting into a whole strawberry including the top part. It has some sourness and funk going on but it's definitely more farmy overall with less-present-but-noticeable off-flavors. Not bad, but kinda...odd. The mouthfeel also feels a bit disjointed, lacking the spritz and solidity of the framboos.

Whereas Spontanframboos felt like a well-made, authentic fruit sour, this came off more like an interesting experiment that could use some touch-ups. I dug the odd but authentic, farmy strawberry feel, but the surrounding off-flavors and weird mouthfeel bring it down.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a lightly hazy brassy yellow to orange in color with heavy amounts of fine visible carbonation and some faint orange highlights. The beer has a three finger tall fizzy light beige head that reduces to a medium sized medium thick patch with a thin film surrounding it and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of funkiness along with some very ripe (almost over ripe) strawberry sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of sour strawberries with a decent amount of funkiness. There is a hint of citrus/lemon and some tannic flavors as well.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry with moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and some stickiness.

O: This beer is very interesting with the funky slightly sour strawberries and over ripe strawberry aroma but not sure this is one that I will be grabbing again. There is quite a bit of funkiness to this one and a surprising amount of tartness/sourness.

From a 375 ml bottle into a globe glass.

A-A moderately aggressive pour produces one fat finger of nearly white head. The foam is dense and retention is pretty good. The brew is the color of dirty water (maybe iced tea?) with pink highlights. I can see a few streams of carbonation bubbling up.

S-This brew is seriously tart. The acid scents are powerful and biting with very little in the way of fruit or complexity. There is also a musty (moldy?) funk going on here. Very little in the way of strawberry, unfortunately. Alcohol sweetness is mostly overwhelmed.

T-The taste is incredibly acidic, bordering on bitter. There is very little (if any) strawberry flavor going on. Rather, I detect a little bit of lemon/lime and a whole lot of oxidized, nondescript, sour, acidity. The result is a beer with earthy, very dry, and biting flavor.

M-The feel is light to medium body for the style with lightly creamy carbonation.

O-After mostly enjoying Spontanframboos, this beer is a let-down. The appearance is kind of nasty (although, to be fair, strawberries don't provide the vivid red pop of cherries or cranberries), so you start with a sort-of ugly beer. You know at first whiff that you'll be drinking a lambic with lots of acid, but here the huge acid has little of the vinous fruit complexity that makes a good lambic or the fruit sweetness that makes a good kriek-lambic. Buyer beware.

A: A very hazy peach color.. the head rises instantly to the top of the glass like champagne, before the large bubbles collapse upon themselves, leaving a foamy ring around the glass, and a thin frosting of light head.

S: As the bubbles burst through the top layer of the beer, they bring with them tartness, and an acidic note. Berries dance with the sour smell, and perhaps a touch of a plastic note lingers in. I am also getting a smell like fresh stream water and wet rock. Almost a bit of earthiness. As I continue to sniff the plastic smell comes forward a hint.. hopefully it doesn't show itself in the taste.

T: Tart! Whew is that tart, there is a quality like a citrus peel... part sour, part bitter. Light strawberry notes as well as some earthiness followed by funk, there is almost a sharpness to it, like an aged cheese. Very interesting.

M: Dry and high carbonation. There is certainly an acidic feel to it, making your teeth feel like you just ate a lemon. The dryness leaves you reaching for another sip.

O: Overall interesting. Not my favorite beer in the world, but I had a craving for a good sour.. this didn't quite quench the craving, but it was a start. A little too much funk, and not quite enough cohesion.

A: This poured a nearly opaque bright copper with quickly dissipating off white head.
S: It smelled like very tart vinegar and funky oak, with musky white grapes and a hint of unripe strawberries.
T: It tasted like huge funky oak and musky white grapes, with some tart vinegar and unripe strawberries. It had a lasting and bold funky aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Nice lively body.
D: This was a pretty extreme lambic, with borderline moldy character. The scent and taste were fairly complex, but not so delicate or refined. The body was fitting, but the finish was pretty harsh, so it must be sipped. Hoping age will help this brew mellow out and gel. Fresh, it was a challenge to enjoy.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a cloudy golden orange color. Produced quite the voluminous white fluffy head that is really sticking around for awhile. Lacing 'a plenty left behind in the process.

(S)- The smell is funk central. Brett heavy with a potent but clean acidity. Ever so slightly earthy in the funk as it turns very very dry. On the finish is one of the brightest strawberry fruit aromas I have ever seen in the style; very juicy.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. Really dry and funky up front. Very Brett-centric in the funk area, that almost turns a touch towards the band-aid realm for me. Its saving grace is the bright strawberry acidic fruits on the finish.

(M)- A crisp and vibrant carbonation level. The dryness helps, though the Brett heavy funk profile turns almost medicinal/band-aid. Thankfully the fruits come through on the finish to twist it into a nice fruit profile for the lambic base.

(O)- This looked and smelled quite good; awesome really. The taste and feel is just way too much centered on the hospital room Brett funk to really enjoy fully. The vibrant strawberries on the finish was the saving grace of this beer that explains why my review is not scored lower.

12.7 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present, but the cap does say 10081205. Got this at the local Binny's the other day. My second journey into the realm of lambics, and it is always exciting to try another one of Mikkeller's creations.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours about one finger of off-white bubbly head, audibly sizzling away. Head retains itself for a minute or two. Body color is light orange around the edges, and a bit darker in the middle. Almost an IPA-like appearance to it. Can definitely spot a bit of a yeasty culture looking presence in there.

S - As soon as I uncapped this, I got a whiff of the sour barnyard funk, and tart fruit. Funky Belgian yeast type smell almost reminds me of a fruity latex glove. One of the more unique smelling beers that I've encountered, yet I was still hoping for much more fruit.

T - Extremely tart, sour, and yeasty. Tastes of brettanomyces and bacteria. Belgian yeast strains don't exactly seem to be my thing, but I'm slowly trying to ween my way towards liking them, taking baby steps. Would have definitely enjoyed more of a strawberry presence here, because I can barely taste any strawberry at all.

M - Tart, bubbly, champagne like feel to it. Carbonated. Very sour bretty, yeasty aftertaste. Finishes very smooth and clean, though.

Overall, I am really on the fence with this beer. I definitely have to say I enjoyed this beer more than many other Belgians I've had in the past, but I guess I am just disappointed because I was hoping for more a tart fruit fix. Still, an enjoyable enough bottle, and one I am glad to have tried. Sour, tart, bretty, yeasty fun, and definitely glad it doesn't have a weak abv like a lot of other lambics I've seen around. If it wasn't so damn expensive, I would probably try it again. Pick it up if you see it!

375ml bottle into a tulip

Pours a deep clear light copper with just the faintest hint of pink. A one finger white head slowly fades to a ring around the sides of the glass and a thin layer of bubbles over the beer.

The aroma is extremely funky. Plenty of Brett along with hints of wood and a light fruityness with hints of strawberry. Some straw in there too along with some medicinal phenols.

Tons of tartness immediately in the taste with a healthy dose of funkyness. This is accompanied, however, by wonderful fresh picked strawberry sweetness that you can tell is definitely not from any artificial additives. There are some faint wood notes from the barrel aging but it is very understated. The tartness almost seems to increase after the beer is swallowed leading to a bit of astringency on the back of the throat although this gets less and less noticeable throughout the glass. The finish is a little sticky with lingering tartness.

Overall, it took me a little while to warm up to this beer but halfway through the glass I am loving it. The strawberry flavor is quite pleasant and fresh tasting and I love the tartness and funk. A nice lambic and one I'm glad I picked up.

the sophistication and flawless execution of this gem must be lost somehow on the BA community. this beer is astoundingly well done. it pours a washed out looking wheat color with just a shade of pink to it and an inch or so of slowly fading white head. nothing miraculous there, but the nose is just amazing. its tart and sour as hell, bretty and lacto sour, but also sweet like candied strawberries, or those tiny little wild ones that grow in the summer that are no bigger than a pea, but have more flavor than those genetically derived grocery store versions by a long shot. its tantilizing and mouthwatering and unique. the flavor is even better than the nose, with the sourness taking an an almost fruit vinegar characteristic, and with the sweetness being present in the middle but not at all in the finish. the strawberry flavor is not fake at all, and is at the peak of ripeness. the sourness is really intense, and the malt profile is just right to make these two seemingly adversarial components fit like a glove. i like this a lot better than either the kriek or the framboos from this series (the only other two ive had), and really admire this for the creativity and the execution. the flavors are divine. mouthfeel too is great, super bright belgian carbonation with a lighter than medium body and a dry sour finish. theres a tad of caustic hospital taste in the finish too, but whatever, it works. i also appreciate a fruit lambic that isnt 4% abv, this higher test works well here. overall a one of a kind masterpiece that i think deserves more attention, and certainly a revisiting from the 40ish other BAs who gave this beer a score in the 70s, this thing is world class!

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a nice pillowy white head w/decent retention. The aroma has typical lambic smells: lemon, funk, grapes, and a disappointing amount of strawberries/sweetness. The taste delightfully has more strawberry, but something is offputting a little bit. I'm not sure if it's just the mix of flavors, or if the strawberries themselves aren't quite as good when fermented, but it's off. Nothing offensive, however. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with good carbonation, and a nice tart finish.

A solid brew from Mikkeler, I can see those that don't like Strawberries might think the taste is a little offputting, but I still thought it was fairy enjoyable.

A - Burnt orange, one finger off white head, minimal lacing.

S - Strawberries, brettanomyces, white grapes, hints of perfumy hops, sweet grains, buttered popcorn, bubblegum, and peach. Very complex.

T - Not as complex as the nose, but still very delicious. Tart strawberry, funky brett, vinous, sharp bitterness on the back end.

M - Medium body, moderate-low carbonation.

O - Very drinkable, great beer, great series, I have also tries the spontanframboos and really enjoyed it, can't wait to try the rest of the series.

Picked up tonight at the COOP for a pricey $13... a guilty but expensive pleasure. Poured into my slim tulip, the brew glows a slightly hazed orange.. 1 finger white head leaves decent lacing.

Funky with a light strawberry note.. real fruit though.. a bit phenolic that makes me think bandaid.. some sulfur.. still pretty okay.

Flavor is better slightly.. fruity and acidic... plenty of lactic notes combine with fermented out fruit.. sorta briny... the fruit shines mid-palate for a moment and then moves back to the traditional lambic elements.. phenols show again on the finish as a sorta lingering bandaid note.

Body is light as expected... carbonation is spritzy.

Decent... but I don't appreciate the bandaid aroma/flavor too much, I know they show often in funky brews, but I thought they detract too much from the fruity elements.

375ml bottle, best before May 2022. Wow, a decade from now, hard to quite fathom.

This beer pours a hazy medium orange-tinged amber hue, with two fingers of tightly billowing off-white head, which leaves a low ebbing berm of lace around the glass as it slowly fades away.

It smells of week-old, yet still rather sweet strawberries, languishing in the back of the fridge, with some mildly earthy barnyard funk, some bewildered pale malt, a subtle, more vegetal tartness, an echo of musty cheese, and tame leafy hops. The taste is sour strawberries, this time a bit more fresh in their bearing, mixed with some aged lemon juice, a continuing funky barnyard essence, meek grainy malt, some softly rendered barrel notes, and a very slight petrochemical nature.

The bubbles are a bit frizzy, but in a generally low-key manner, the body medium-light in weight, the acidity doing a lofty sort favour for us all, at the same time letting the smoothness off with nary a warning. It finishes off-dry, the malt kind of asserting itself for the first time, as the sourness, funk, and fruitiness maintain a steady holding pattern.

A surprisingly agreeable 'new' world wild ale (so the Danes are allowed to call it 'Lambic', eh?), the barrel treatment deft and understated, just enough to allow the base nature of the fruit to actually shine through. Well drinkable, and that's a metric shit-ton more of praise than I had been expecting to proffer for this one.

A: The beer has a light reddish-yellow body that pours with a thin white head and next to no retention.

S: The nose is a bit of a failure in that it resembles that of a Pilsner with a light wet hop and light malt smell. Smells like a drunk mans breath.

T: Extremely tart strawberry is the first flavor to hit the palette resembling an unripe strawberry with some earthiness, floralness and heavy bitterness. Quite interesting.

M: The mouthfeel is good for the style with a light body and sharp carbonation that compliments the flavor profile.

Overall this was a good strawberry lambic but it could use a bit more strawberry flavor and a better nose.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, ripe strawberries. In the taste, a dry small sour strawberry and somewhat like champagne. A sour like bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry sourness and note of fruit in the aftertaste. Dry strawberries and a small sourness, not to shabby.

A clouded dark straw brew, An off-white head, little lacing but some curtains.

Smelling of rubber and sweetener, and moldy strawberries.

Initially sweet strawberry biscuits, then some sour milk on moldy strawberries, with a hint of yeast.

Medium high carbonation, coarse and dry. A small body.

Nope, one of the few Mikellers I do not like.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

Had to try this to report back to the others...being the scout can be dangerous, but it can also be rewarding. Wonder which will befall me here? This stuff pours a lightly hazy golden-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose reeks of mildly sulfurous berries (I can't say that it smells like any kind of strawberry I've ever smelled, but I also can't say definitively that it doesn't, either...), tart lemon zest, and a kiss of funk. It's a bit much if inhaled sharply. The taste brings in more of the same, with a touch of strawberry coming through identifiably. Now, I've never had wild strawberries, and apparently they're tarter than the garden variety, but I can say that this is definitely more sour than I expected. An almost tannic quality seems to creep up from beneath near the finish, but it quickly peters out. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a pretty nice "lambic", though it's a rougher tartness than I'd prefer in these beers. Still, it ain't bad.
