From a 375 ml bottle (bottle May 2014) to a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces two fingers of greyish-tan foam. Retention is short and the foam leaves no lacing. The beer is a pink-tinted honey-golden color. It is cloudy.

S-The aroma is very tart, it pulls at my glands with just a sniff. Beneath the lemony acidity I get some funky oak and a lactic sour aroma. There is some distinguishable strawberry flavor among the mashed fruit aromas.

T-The taste is similar with big acidity and a muddled, mushed strawberry flavor. There is also a bit of sour cherry fruit to go with the light oaky, lactic funk. The beer is medium dry.

M-The body is medium in heft with a slightly creamy carbonation for the style.

O-This is a pretty solid effort. I think strawberry is tough to do well in beer, but this one nearly gets it right. The beer is a bit too sour and simple to compete against my favorite strawberry sour (Jillian), but the flavors here taste authentic and the acidity is clean and refreshing in small sips.
