750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy body. Small white head and a medium collar.

Smell - Strawberry. Lightly grainy. A little acidic.

Taste - More sour than the nose implied. Strawberry. Amplifies the sourness. A little grainy.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Strawberry is strong, but that's about all it is.

Split with rudzud.

very little head, murky hazy peachish orange red color, little white strawberry seed like things floating.

NOse brings mild funk, a little earthy Brett like funk, with plenty of strawberry, aged soft strawberry, a little strawberry jam and acidic tartness.

Taste brings tons of strawberry, like loads of fresh strawberry and tart fleshy sour strawberry, little funky, with mild earthy funk, and flemmy sourness. little acidic, with a sour acidic strawberry bite, and some strawberry like juice. FInish is a little sticky and flemmy, little acidic, little syrupy like, tart lingering.

Mouth is med bod, lighter carb again.

Overall quite nice, one of the better ones from them despite the age on it.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dirty red hazy hue with a thin wispy head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of faint strawberries, light gentle wisps of a strawberry patch. It gets stronger as it warms but it is still subtle. Fresh and gummy strawberry.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, strawberry is much more muted but delicious. Almost like a dirty patch, nice funk, light tartness. Green kind of seedy. Faint vinegar but the strawberry is tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, good body, pleasant.

O - Overall this beer was delicious, good strawberry patch notes though faint due to age.

Crisp, balanced. Tart but not overly so. Great strawberry in the nose and comes through in a subtle way in the beer that is prominent yet not overbearing. Excellent.
