Served from bottle at Lexington Beerworks (KY)

Medium orange-amber, clear. Decent head and lacing

Very clear strawberry aroma, but more cooked, frozen or jam than fresh but appealing nonetheless.

Flavor: as with the aroma, various forms of strawberries with little else. Sweet but with some tartness. Sweetness seems appropriate to other aspects of the flavor profile.
Near medium body; well-set medium carbonation.

A: The beer is essentially clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving a bit of acing in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate amount of strawberry aromas are present in the nose.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and is dominated by strawberry flavors that don't really seem that artificial.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice and easy drinking lambic. The favor is quite simple, but I liked it because its not sweet.

12.7 oz bottle poured into a flute

A- A hazy/murky red/light brown with a small off white head.

S- Strawberry jam, fairly sweet, a little tart, touch of vinegar.

T- Sweet strawberry jam, vinegar, kind of messy, tart.

M- Crisp, light body.

O- This is average and pricey. If it was cheaper I would pick it up, but it would have to be a lot cheaper.

Looks like watered down port wine or a light cherry wine cooler...a faded red color. The head is thin and fleeting with the slightest hint of red.

I don't care for lambic, but I can work with the smell. It's a combination of strawberry and vinegar.

Surprisingly good. I expected a serious pucker but it never happened. It simply tastes like tart strawberries, no offensive vinegar flavor.

No carbonation and no alchol, it really tastes like strawberry juice. No hop presence, no malt backbone, it's simply fruit juice.

Nothing to write home about. It's not good and it's not's barely a beer.
