4oz on tap at the Corner Brewery. Hazy orange amber color. Minimal ring of off-white head. Pleasant amount of strawberry, and some malt sweetness. Kind of like strawberry preserves. Mild herbal spiciness. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter, just a hint of tang. Some raw grain. Medium-plus body. Kind of slick texture. Very light carbonation. Touch under carbed. An alright strawberry blond overall though. I dig the flavor. Would not want a whole pour though, 4oz was plenty.

Aroma is light fresh sweet strawberry. Color is red amber. Taste is berry in the front and bread in end, some sweetness in the middle but not too much. Creamy texture, very slight hop flavor but no bitterness. Pretty good.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep orange/amber color with a small off white head with poor retention, that reduces to a minimal ring of lace pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aromas of strawberry, mango, apricot, orange peel, pear, coriander, honey, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of strawberry, spices, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big strawberry, mango, apricot, orange peel, pear, coriander, honey, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of strawberry, mango, apricot, orange peel, pear, coriander, honey, toast, biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of strawberry, spices, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with no cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good fruited imperial blonde style. All around good balance and robustness of strawberry, spices, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours hazy medium dark golden, orange tint, with a small off-white cap, no retention or lacing. phenolic fruits, spices, berry fruitiness, diacetyl, acetone, sweet honeyed malts - doughy caramel too, strawberry if not miscellaneous fruit jam - comes with a plain sweetness. average carbonation, light body - oily and a bit sticky, sweetish and short bitter herbal-peppery finish. offensive, defects-wise. blah.

You can really smell the malt and the yeast in this beer for me. I was really hoping to taste and smell more of the strawberries, but for me it just wasn’t there. The taste was a bit like cough syrup, almost like its trying too hard to be sweet. Rather unexciting and unpleasant.
