The body is super shiny like an amber gem with a creamy, persistent film and a thick collar with raised edges.

This smells exactly like a jar of organic strawberry jam I had in the fridge that went super funky and had this odd, airy and nutty aroma to it. It's really unusually intense.

Taste translates almost identically, but sweeter, with a green, herbal accent via a thin to medium body with light carbonation, a slightly stinging sour exhale and a dry finish.

I've had very similar experiences with a number of well-regarded strawberry sours now. I'm just not sure I really like what happens when strawberries are used in this style, but maybe the age funked this up even more!

Pretty unusual beer. It blends strawberry fruit with a dirty cheese barnyard funk sour. Overall it's a noble acheivement, definitely different than you'd expect for a strawberry sour, well worth a try.
