I've been really impressed with the barrelworks series and was psyched to try this one. Not sure if came in trade or found locally (think this was in a box, so thanks to whomever sent it!!!).

strawberry is a hard fruit to make taste good in a beer and while the nose smacks of strawberry jam, the taste doesn't live up to the nose. although good, the pucker is just a bit too much and the body just a hint too fizzy for where I want this to fall. Overall a good strawberry brew, but no cask strawberry.

375ml bottle, cork and caged. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a golden yellow body, slightly hazy, one finger white head, good retention. Smells of strawberry jam, lactic acid, yogurt, touch of wheat and oak. Flavour is more of the yogurt and lactic acid; more of that west coast wild ale flavour and lactobacillus more so than the strawberry. Still, a tasty and moderately lactic sour ale. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, a bit sharp and crisp, refreshingly tart.

375 mL poured to Duvel tulip. Red tint to wheat base beer. Hazy with an active head of white foam is big then gone. Nose is big strawberry with lacto behind it. Strawberry flavor has plenty of presence with a finish of lacto and restrained wood. Llight stingy finish. Medium light body and above moderate carbonation.
