3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Sunset Grill, fall 2008. Fairly true strawberry nose boasts of more fruit than beer, though it dosent seem candyish or cloying and there does seem to be some malt crispness on the end. Not any flaws that I can detect and a pretty high strength of aroma. Shockingly reserved in fruit sweetness, with seemingly most of the sugars fermented out. You even get some light pale malt graininess and a lager yeast crispness on the finish. No wateriness, medium-light bodied with no alcohol or flaws perceivable. How this brewery is so hit or miss is beyond me.

12oz bottle of the worst beer of 2015....so far. Poured an okay looking dirty straw body with a foamy average sized head. Aroma/flavor of 3 things....rotting strawberries, dusty old grains, and vomit. This beer is atrocious.

Initial taste is full of strawberry. Very sweet with a held back taste of hops.

12oz bottle -
Fruit beers vary wildly in their approach to the fruit that’s being showcased. Some are extremely fruit forward with a jammy, fruit fruit aroma and flavor and others are extremely pedestrian with barely any fruit noticeable. This beer falls towards the lower end of the fruit spectrum, and seemed very restrained. It was clean, somewhat refreshing, and the strawberries did show up in the flavor...but they reminded me dried strawberries. I think I have a few female friends that might enjoy this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has a lot of strawberry with some lager yeast, and the appearance is an opaque golden with a small white head. The taste initially has some slightly sweet and slightly sour strawberry, but it quickly subsides to a lot of sour lager yeast flavor. The aftertaste is nearly non-existent with lager yeast lingering on the tongue, and it has a soft carbonation, slick texture, and a medium-light body.

Still leaning toward the stereotypical light foofy side of fruity beers. The strawberry is light. Fairly pleasant, but slightly medicinal. Otherwise, not a whle lot going on here. This "This brew has earned quite a reputation in a short time" kinda makes me laugh. 15th percentile. Nice rep :)"

Bottle - fair size foamy head, pale straw color, definite strawberry aroma and flavor but not overpowering at all, mild sweet malt backbone, mild earthy hops - actually not too bad, definitely better than I expected

I couldn’t even finish it. I thought the strawberry flavor would be wonderful for summer time, it just tasted like a weird mushed fruit blended with a mediocre beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Pale straw with a billowing off-white head; the aroma mixes grassy hops with some faint floral strawberries; the taste has a honey-like sweetness to start with weak strawberry flavours, then becomes drier and grainy, but fizzles out without any real finish. Not a great combination.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, strawberry, citrus. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.
