look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Sampled from a 375ml bottle dated April 2012.

A - Golden and crystal clear. No head but some large bubbles on the top.

S - Beautiful fresh strawberries with hints of tart and funk. Gets even better as it warms.

T - A firm tart/sour without biting. A moderate strawberry flavor that combines nicely with the tartness.

M - Smooth and silky with no carbonation. The texture lets the flavors run wild.

O - I prefer cherry lambics but this was tasty and interesting.

Got this one at De Bierkoning a couple weeks back.

From a 375 corked and caged bottle into a wine glass
Best before 7 August 2017
Lot E

APPEARANCE: Pours out flat and yields a bubbly ring eventually. Cloudy amer orange with no carbonation. Ends up looking flat pretty quickly, so not really a fan there.

SMELL: Strawberries for sure, with stinky cheese, tart lemon notes and some acidic vinegar on the nose. Pretty bold. Moldy aromas and lots of fungus as well. A little too much so for my tastes.

TASTE: Tart lemon sourness with sour strawberries as well. Definite funk and cheese up front with a tart and sour, acidic finish. Lemon, strawberry tartness and some moldy flavors linger on the palate. A hint of bitterness as well. Actually much more balanced and enjoyable than the nose had led on.

PALATE: Medium body and no real carbonation. Basically flat. Watery going down and finishes with a touch of acidity. Fine, but a little too flat, even for the style.

OVERALL: A bit too moldy and funky on the nose for me, but the flavor was much more balanced and included more of the tartness and acidity that I tend to enjoy. Enjoyable and refreshing on a warm day, though a little more cabonation is needed to make this one worth while. I'll try another batch, but will pass on this one for now.
