Produced 26/01/11
(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a queer reddish-brown body that is murky, and a pink hue to the lumpy white head that last a good bit.

S- The strawberry milkshake aroma has an odd macaroni and cheese smell, like powdered yeast vegans eat instead of cheese. There is also a bubble gum ester note that comes through when the beer warms.

T- The fake strawberry flavor taste just like freeze dried ice cream with a sweet finish and a candy sugar note in there also.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat or astringency.

O- The big candy flavor is all artificial strawberry and there is no malt or hops to challenge it. The carbonation helps to cut the sweetness a bit but it is not enough.

A: Pours a hazy pinkish/red color. A two finger white/pink head forms, but recedes to a ring in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: Very sweet candy and sugar. Artificial strawberry hard candy. Blah, and border line offensive.
T: Again, blah. Very artificial. Tastes like a lot of unfermented sugars. Fake, artificial strawberries. A hint of toasted grain lingers as this warms up.
M/D: A light body, with decent carbonation. Not something I am going to come back to.

At least the Lindemans Lambics have something else going on than sweet sugar and artificial flavoring. There is no funk and no tartness to speak of. Just cloying sweetness. I will avoid this from now on.

Cool various shades of pink from the liquid to the head, good retention. Straight up yummy aroma that is spot on strawberry.

Taste falters, all sweet, less fruit flavor, really didn't deliver on the strawberry flavor like it did the smell. No sourness. Or if there was, it was just dominated by the sweetness. Not good enough for a lambic. Light enough body, maybe wheat to it. Easy to drink, but I'd prefer to just smell this stuff as opposed to drink it.

$5 a bottle, can't recommend it. Unless you just like to smell beers.

11.2 oz bottle drank from my Rodenbach tulip...Pours an ugly soggy strawberry daiquiri color with a light but frothy light pink head...The aroma is surprisingly good for a strawberry beer, very sweet fresh cut strawberries, very candish in the middle, no tartness. Sweet but decent...The taste is super sweet, tons of strawberries, sweet but not terrible, totally lacking in depth though. Not at all sour. This is very juice like. A light bitter finish.

For strawberry beers its not bad, for a lambic is below average. Not at all sour, a great starter for someone not into beer at all.

11.2 oz bottle of the 2010 (June) vintage pours a hazed rust color with a fairly decent fine-bubbled head. Fades slowly to a nice little collar.

Nose is strawberry galore, waaay to much and too sweet for natural flavoring. Im sure this has been said before, but it smells like a strawberry soda.

Taste calms the sweetness down and a little bit of tartness and some earthy yeast/malt comes out. I actually kind of like it, although admittedly, I tend to like fruit beers from time to time. This one is not as cloyingly sweet as some and there is a light touch of funk underneath...maybe because it is 2 years old...is a welcome addition. "Belgium's Finest Limbic Beer" it is not, but a nice little fruit beer? Sure, I'll be happy to quaff this again.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a three finger white head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, strawberry, cream, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, sugar, cream, strawberry, and fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I had this one a little while back out of the bottle and really enjoyed it. However, the on draught version left something to be desired. There was more of an earthy note on the nose that was a little abrasive with all the other aspects going on here. The flavor was very light which made it easy to drink, but not the most enjoyable thing I drank this night. I would suggest this to a new craft beer drinker that was a fan of fruit, but for the refined Lambic drinker, I wouldn't bother with it on tap.

Enjoyed this 750ml beer out of a Belgian tulip glass..

A: Pours a peach color with a white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Sweet peach and strawberry aroma.

T: Similar to the smell, a sweet peach and strawberry flavor dominates this lambic.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Just a so-so lambic – I’ve had much better.

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

A: Peach colour, an orange with a pink tinge, slightly cloudy, medium low carbonation slight pinkish white head fades fast.

S: Strawberries and strawberry jam, reminds me of a strawberry filled donut as the scent is quite sweet. A deeper sniff reveals the sour lambic quality. Sour, slight balsamic vinegar.

T: Lovely sour lambic quality much more present in the taste. Sweet strawberry jam, sour slight vinegar, slight wine, then the unmistakable soured fruit quality. Complex musty barrel quality as well.

A resemblance to strawberry yogurt.

M: Medium acidic body, lots of soda like carbonation.

O: Really like this, my first strawberry lambic. Would go well with fruity desserts and creamy cheese. Complex and interesting.
