nice aroma of strawberries and none too chemical. flavor is very dry and quite bitter as well. like their purple haze, the fruit flavor is quite muted and might even be called subtle, despite the over the top aromas in this one. i guess that works to its advantage, though i still have no interest in this style after an example like this.

12 oz bottle from Archer Liquors. This poured a thin watery yellow, some head. Smells kind of like pop tarts. Taste is similar but a bit better. A decent strawberry flavor but has some weird sugary aftertaste. Not bad at all, better than I thought it would be.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet strawberry. Flavor is not as strong as the aroma. There is definitely a strawberry flavor that mixes well with the breadiness and hint of butter. Almost shortcake like. Very enjoyable.

Nice strawberry aroma, excellent head. Not bad for a session/lawnmower brew. Fruit beers are disdained by some, but the wife plans on making beer bread with it. I will drink more of it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clouded yellow. Strong sweet smell. Strawberries are definitely present. Tingle over the palate. Not quite as sweet as I would have hoped. Strawberries add aroma and not much flavor. Still has a citrus acidity feeling regardless of the fruit choice. Bready finish. Almost has a tea finish. Extra point for the aroma.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a one finger snow white head. The nose is malt and strawberry saltwater taffy. The taste is malt, wheat and some light strawberry in the finish. The flavor is far less sweet than the aroma suggests which is a good thing. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad really for what it is. A nice summer beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle... Lightly hazed, straw-colored lager with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. The aroma is grainy and biscuity with a nice touch of strawberry extract and a whisper of buttery diacetyl. Light-bodied and mildly creamy with tingly carbonation. Lightly sweet; lightly tart flavor with some strawberry essence. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very light color of straw; slightly hazy. Good near-white head. Light (slippery) lace.
I don’t smell any berry unless you count the Frankenberry-like smell. Also, this has a milky lactose nose.
Lots of sourness, particularly in the swallow and the aftertaste. The carbonation is quite low. This is an odd flavored beer; not my style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
If you are expecting a sickeningly sweet strawberry flavored beer, this is not it. A great hot weather beer, it is a nice clean crisp lager with an aroma of fresh picked strawberries. The strawberry is almost entirely in the nose and finish. Mouth feel is clean and crisp, nice finish, great for hot summer weather like summer in Houston or New Orleans.
