look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with an old-school Belgian label. Purchased from Leura Cellars.

Appearance: pours a hazy amber-pinkish with a natural brown tinge. A fairly creamy one-finger head drops fairly quickly to a patchy cap, limited lacing.

Aroma: quite a sweet strawberry note - natural strawberries, not that awkward artificial smell. Some Belgian lambic yeasts and earth notes manage to balance the sweetness out.

Taste: follows the nose quite closely - a lovely natural strawberry with earth and Belgian wild yeasts. Very refreshing indeed.

Aftertaste: a lemon citrus tartness joins the strawberry on the finish. Very nice.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with light- to- medium carbonation.

Overall: quite a nice lambic - very natural strawberry fruits that aren't as overly sweet as some, being balanced with earth malts and lemon citrus tartness. The price being over AU$130 a case of 24 (2014) is a little prohibitive however.
