2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz. bottle. Light yellow, thin watery pour with little head, but a champagne-like internal carbonation. Jammy sweet strawberry fragrance with little flavor to follow through. Not too sweet, not too much of anything or any flavor, though somewhat rice-y, with a sour finish and pasty aftertaste of stale Juicy Fruit gum that’s been under a table for a few weeks. Overall, a poor representation of a fruit beer with little body or flavor.

Clear yellow with a two finger frothy white head. Aroma of Froot Loops cereal--cereal grain, artificial fruit, and light biscuits. Flavor is heavily oxidized, lots of grain with light strawberry. Fairly papery and grainy with the aforementioned Froot Loops finish. Moderate carbonation with a thin body. Crappy. Label notched on 09/02.

Pours a fairly clear gold with a thick, bubbly 1 1/2 inch white head. very active carbonation. Aroma of slightly sour malt, strawberries and grass. Flavor is standard malty lager, lightly sweet with a dash of strawberries. Meh.

I think this is a great summer beer. I think the taste is great. Very unique. I look forward to buying more each year!

in bottle. Confusing to find this beer in the fall - isn’t strawberry harvest usually in May? I do think there are some hops in this beer, near the end. this is a good attempt at a fruit beer, and props to abita for experimenting with the strawberry. A good summer beer, this is basically a flavored watery lager.

In the bottle from Inari Wines. Pours a clear hazy medium gold with a small white head. The aroma is of seedy strawberries. The flavor is whopping packed with strawberries from beginning to end. I mean, wow, I was not expecting to like this at all.It’s not a sweet beer, just has a huge strawberry flavor. Starts benign, but then you get hit with this huge bolus of strawberries. Good novelty beer.

Pours a nice golden color with decent head. The nose is malt and most definitely strawberries. The flavor is mild strawberry. The finish is crisp and clean with just a lingering of the fruit. Fine for a summers day but not what I would choose if given the choice.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz bottle. Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of strawberries and pale malt but there is a very artificial chemically component. Flavour has a fake strawberry, butyric rancidity, and a nasty sour spoiled nuttiness. Wet grain/cereal finish and a burned plastic finish. Ugh.

Poured a nice golden color with a thick white head. Definite strawberry aftertaste which intensified as it warmed. My wife really liked this but I’d have to pass on trying this again.
