      (Flavored with strawberries.) Bright golden, nice dense head. Fairly skunky odor, with aromas of malt, Brettanomyces, and peach. Medium body, sweet, tart, malty, and fruity (peach flavor, not strawberry). Thanks to Steve Olson for the sample!

      Deep golden, high carbonation, thick head. Spicy, slightly sour aroma, with lots of Brettanomyces and quite a bit of malt. Medium body. Quite dry. Very interesting smoky jalapeño pepper flavor! Nice and tart, especially in the finish. Intensely spicy with lots of earthy Brett character.
