750 mL bottle into a tulip

Bottle-date is smudged to the point of illegibility, but you can kinda make out a '15, so we'll just go with that.

Classic, Cantillon-esque appearance - orange-rose color with a soda-like wispy head that dissipates quickly.

Infused strawberries hit the nose first, with plenty of tart-funk surrounding them, along with oak and lemon zest. Pungent bouquet.

Carries more of a lactic punch-to-the-palate than the nose portends - we've got ourselves one pucker-inducing lambic here. Quite lemony, with undertones of strawberries, but more dry and oaky and sour than fruity. Refreshing though, with an effervescent complexion that closes quickly with a clean finish, as notes of unripe strawberries linger.

Typically I like lambics on the dry-tart side, but this goes a little too far. Still, refreshing and not a chore to throw back. I'd peg the ABV to be around 6.5%, although like stated in the review, it's not listed on the bottle.

Pours a quite unappealing orange, with zero head. The aroma is very funky. And just a general fruity note. Taste- holy fudge balls batman, this is sour. Lemons, and slight strawberry. Some oak. And a puckering sourness. Moithfeel. The best part. A refreshing soda like bubbliness in the mouth. Overall. Very sour. Hard to drink by itself. We happened to have key lime pie in the house. The beer paired well with it. The sweetness in the Poe cut into the sourness quite a bit. So I recommend saving this for such an opportunity yourselves. (If it's not to late)
