2.73/5 rDev -29.5%
750ml bottle into a snifter
A: Pours an amber/brown with a finger if quickly receding head.
S: Acetic acid, funk, and strawberries are upfront, all of fairly equal intensity. The sour aroma I get out of this isn't exactly my favorite, but it's a decent aroma.
T: Strongly sour, much moreso than I was expecting. Actually fairly balanced between acetic and lactic. A nice strawberry aftertaste, but that's about all it is. An odd funkiness is there as well.
M: Moderate thickness with low carbonation.
O: More subtle and balanced than most Bruery beers I've had. The strawberry could be a bit more intense. There's also an odd funkiness to this beer.

3.79/5 rDev -2.1%
Appearance: Slightly cloudy reddish-amber color. Medium off-white head that dissipated quickly. Nice looking but the head left quickly.
Smell: Moderate funk, tart strawberries and some hay-like aromas.
Taste: Funk, tart strawberries, mild grassy notes and mild acetic notes. A healthy dose of sour comes across with all the flavors. The mild acetic presence is not a problem for me in contrast to the preference of others.
Mouth-feel: Fairly light bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. The finish is clean and fairly dry.
Overall: Maybe it's the age but I found the strawberry presence to be fairly restrained. I still enjoyed it.

3.84/5 rDev -0.8%
Body is clear red color with a brown tint. Poured with a good head that dissipated to a ring with only fleeting lacing. Nice appearance.
Nose of strawberries, but there is a note of overripe ones. Some vegetal element and funk.
Tastes of tart strawberries at first, but that is quickly followed by an odd chemical plastic/glue taste in the finish that is not very pleasant. It may be just that the strawberries were overripe.
Body is light and carbonation is crisp. Combined with the sourness level, it has a refreshing mouthfeel.
Nice to try a strawberry beer, and the initial strawberry taste and the sourness level are good points, but the chemical residue in the finish is off-putting.
