1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks exactly like ginger ale, tons of bubbles rising from the bottom, on the side of glass, and fizzingly up into a large (but quickly diminishing) bone white head. Smells nothing of strawberries, but instead brown sugar, skunk hops and cheap adjuncts. Taste is bitter lager hops, dry, lemon, and maybe a bit of kiddy candy strawberry candy. Doesn’t taste like real strawberries, my guess is added syrup. Aftertaste is strawberry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is that of Captain Crunch Berry, no joke. Flavor is that of light strawberry. Probably would go really good with a desert of some kind on a nice hot spring or summer evening.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of strawberries and wheat. Pours light yellow with a thin, bubbly head. Very good mouth feel. Very light flavor with a pleasant strawberry quality. Not fake, sugary. Good Summer beer!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light straw color, with a bit of haze, and some reddish sediment (strawberries?) in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is light malt and strawberries. The flavor is not much else. A bit sweet and a fairly light body. Almost more of a cooler than a beer. But, enjoyable for a change of pace. But, I wouldn’t have more than one at a time.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared with a friend (thanks, Tyler) at RFD Washington. This is a bit hazy, and relatively flat. Unfortunately the overall impression of this brew by everyone involved was best encapsulated by Tyler (who is a big Purple Haze fan), who described it as "kid’s toothpaste in a glass." Only for the fruit lovers. (#2773, 4/5/2007)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma smells of fresh strawberry with some sourness thrown in which pretty much describes the flavor. Unfortunately, such a sweet beer has a light palate and minimal carbonation. I’m not repelled by this easy drinking beer and would try it on tap. I like the sweet berry overtone but wish there was more to this beer whether it be some citrus, bitter hops or a fuller body (yeah I know its hot In New Orleans). Thanks to Rich L. for getting this one in the mail from La.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light peach color, pratically golden yellow. Mild carbonation. Foamy white head that disappeared quickly. At first it smelled like any other plain lager, but after awhile a subtle stawberry and cream scent came through. Initial flavor is kind of buttery and honey-like, but then the strawberry comes out. Very slight bitterness in the finish. Somewhat watery. Very light beer and soft on the palate.
12 oz bottle, $1.50 from Party Town.
