Bright yellow color, nearly no foam.

Smells like used baby-daiper, very unpleasant at first, but if, against better knowledge, you are still willing to take a deep breath, you will find very well hidden flavours of ripe strawberries, beneath a tart, fruity load of brett defined sourness. It is even possible to detect a sweet hint in the overall sourness, resulting from the strawberries.

Taste is incredible sour, dries out the tongue immediately, but still leaves some space for a decent strawberry flavour. Begins as sour as it gets, then stawberries come up, adding a lot of fruitiness, which then transforms into a tongue stinging fruity bitterness. It is hard not to cringe at that particular point, still, the beer is unexpected nice, due to its enjoyable, refreshing complexity.

Fantastic, dry tartness paired with sunny, stingy fresh strawberries, leading to a chewy mouthfeel, with an enormous sour aftertaste, which leaves the palate slightly dazed, but very satisfied.

The beer comes in a slightly hazy light orange.

The aroma has green apple candy, tart, lemon, and heavy stinkiness of stale hay and urine.

The flavor follows with the green apple, but is not as tart. The vinegar and funk follow through. The beer has decent complexities, but the lack of carbonation on this flat beer was an issue.

Bottles April 2013 notched on bottle.

Definitely notes of strawberry and sour lacto. Pretty awesome flavor, nice nose, great color. Would definitely get this again.
