Pours a light clear golden coloring, has a breakfast ceral malt aroma with that artifical fruit flavoring, like strawberry quick. A decent lager as a standalone, biscuity albeit grainy cereal maltiness, with a very thin body and fading artifical fruit flavors.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of sweet strawberry syrup and...lager. Tastes like a macrolager with Quaker Oats strawberry instant oatmeal mixed in. That said, it’s not altogether unpleasant. I probably won’t buy it again, but I wouldn’t turn it down at a party.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of strawberries / berries, and grains. Tastes of strawberries (more so than the aromas). Thinner body.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 Bottle at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar in Nashville. Pours golden with a white head. Macro like texture. Beery and strawberry aroma. Flavor is pretty much strawberry, cheap pale lager, a hint of nuts, all combined with too much sweetness. Not my thing.

Bottle. Lovely powdery strawberry aroma fills the room, reminds of certain brands of strawberry ice cream. Cloudy light yellow-golden with medium carbonation and a fluffy, creamy white head. Watery body with light crispiness and thin strawberry sweetness. I swear I’ve had mixed-fruit gelato like this. The underlying lager is weak; otherwise, this might compete for a 3.0. Decent light summer fare.

Hesitant to buy a single, I’m now kicking myself for not getting the entire sixer. This is a surprisingly wonderful fruit beer. Looks like a pale lager with a golden yellow body and fluffy white cap. Delectable aroma of candied strawberries, very subdued and intriguing. Crisp yet soft on the palate, it’s a delicate mouth feel with a sweet, fruity punch. The flavor really stands out with a nice pale malt backbone and complimenting fresh strawberries. The fruit really accents this lager and tastes genuine. Thumbs up to Abita for this delicious treat.

This contained far too much strawberry flavor. Taste reminded me of the strawberry daiquiris synonymous for the area where this is brewed. Too sweet and off target.

Thanks to deepsouth for this one
Bottle poured into my pint class produced a finger worth of white head that turns to a thick lace. This sits on top of a hazy pale light gold body
Aromas of strawberries lots of them fill your nose
Flavors of strawberries and bread wow this stuff is strange but in a good way interesting. Light and crisp mouthfeel so it makes for a good summer treat
An interesting beer glad I tried it. Don’t think I could drink too many of these but It would be fun to have every once in a while. The strawberry flavor is great and refreshing so it is a great summer brew

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Slightly hazed gold. Small white head. Nose is strawberries, maybe some strawberry jam, grains, and light grass. Taste is berry and grains, not unlike Special K with strawberries cereal. Soft grass and biscuit as well. Body is light but very bubbly. Lots of belching with this one. Some light bitterness at times as well. Finish is more grains, biscuit, strawberries and soft grass. Not bad at all. Rather refreshing!

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear light golden color with a one finger thick white head. Light lacing. Aroma is berries and lightly sweetened grain. Taste like sweet, berry flavored buttered popcorn. Kinda odd, but tastes OK. Light to medium body. No unpleasant aftertastes. A decent fruit beer.
