Thanks to leftyhyzer for sharing

A - Hazy orange with a white head

S - Strawberry is strong and full with a light nectarine. Like strawberry jelly with a light orange presence.

T - Strawberry presence that gives a nice sweetness to it. Melon with a tart sour presence with light vinegar and lemon on the backend that makes it tart

M - Light carb with lots of bubbles and a dry finish

O - Good fruited wild with a good balance of strawberry balanced with a tart lemony vinegar

Bottle poured in to tulip.

A - Golden opaque yellow colour with some orange towards the centre and a thin layer of white head.

S - Sour vinegar-like aroma and funk dominate the nose. Hints of strawberry, grapes and oak in the background.

T - Moderate sourness and acidity with the strawberry and nectarine really shining through nicely. Oak is present throughout.

M - Medium body. Somewhat creamy. Light carbonation.
