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.

12 oz bottle. Not really much to say here --- just another attempt to blend fruit and beer which usually goes bad in most cases like this one.

Eh. About what you expect. Too sweet candy strawberry tasting. Still drinkable and fine for bbq beer.

Tap at ole saint in Nola. Accidentally ordered this. Bad accident. Looks good, hazy gold with very thick white head. Spoiled fruit aroma. Fake fruit taste with bad beer follow through. Poor.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma was rotten, putrid strawberries. Flavor was hindered by the thinness of the body and was basically a mild strawberry flavor with some carbonic tang, some weird oily sweetness. The finish is a memory of that awful aroma.

Not terrible. I could see this being refreshing on a hot and humid Louisiana day. Draught at the brewpub, New Orleans trip 2016.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish.This one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

Its a strawberry beer. Its called she wolf, its okay... But you know. Light golden amber. Strawberry jam sweetness. The snozeberries taste like real snozeberries. Some undertones for malt. Light body. You boys ever been to Mexico?

My friend shared her bottle with me. I am not usually a fruit beer kind of person. It was ok. Grainy with sourdough and berry jam.

On tap. Cloudy light orange pour. Luscious berry aroma on the nose. Very nice. Watery mouthfeel but you wouldn’t want this to be thick and heavy. Very refreshing. I expected it to be overly sweet and sickening. It was neither. Good show, Abita.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours slightly clouded yellow-gold with medium white head that leaves some nice lace.
Nose is cereal and strawberry candy. The strongly artificial opening makes the initial palate seem like a corn syrup-lager mix. I’m not a Cap’n Crunch consumer, but that popped to mind.
After a few minutes, though, this beer settles down nicely. Both the aroma and the taste begin to seem more like fresh strawberries. It’s still on the sweet side, but not as cloying as its first impression.
While clearly intended as a hot weather beer, this is another brew that benefits from not being served icy cold. For those who like Purple Haze, this is a companion brew.
