Intro: A 1 pint 0.9 fl. oz. bottle, Blend 5, bottled in May 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear golden orange colour (from a careful pour) with a one finger white head that dissipated quite quickly while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, strawberry, oak, with some light funk and a splash of lemon.
Taste: Sour, tart, strawberry, vanilla cream, oak, with a touch of lemon and funk.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I love strawberries, but strawberries in beer hasn’t really worked for me at all. This is the one exception so far though as the strawberries come through nicely and provide a nice balance with the sourness and light funk.
