Interesting, but I don’t think I would drink this one again. Pours a slightly cloudy blond with a thin white head. Weird ripe strawberry aroma. Large strawberry flavor and very sweet. A bit too much for me.

12oz bottle(7/20/08)-A slightly hazy golden body with a nice white head. It has an aroma of strawberries and Boo Berry cereal. The flavor is of strawberries and strawberry Kool-Aid. This light bodied brew is a little sweet but good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Overall a pretty decent brew and very well balanced. A little hesitant at first, my mind was changed pretty quickly. Pours a bright cloudy golden colour with a full white head. Taste is very refreshing, soft fresh strawberries and honey on the nose. On the palate, strawberries again as well as a little grass. Clear and clean taste throughout the beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
