COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strawberries are Spring’s first fruit. They announce the end of the long Midwest winter and welcome the lazy days of summer. They herald a season of weekends at the lake, walking barefoot through the grass, and whiling away the afternoon at your local beer garden. Be sure to savor your Strawberry Blonde while it lasts because like a Michigan summer, it’ll be gone before you know it. Food Pairings: Great with tangy BBQ, balsamic vinaigrette, citrusy or spicy dishes, and strawberry rhubarb pie Tasting Notes: This is a sophisticated fruit ale that doesn’t forget it’s a beer. Rich and flavorful medium bodied beer with a fresh, floral strawberry aroma. Citrus, spice, and fruit are blended seamlessly for a subtle yet distinct flavor that never turns too sweet.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is very heavy strawberry as you would expect, jelly like, somewhat artifical, and fruits. The look is dark golden in color with an off white head. The taste is sweet, strawberries, and ok.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: pours amber and deep rustic copper, opaque near the top. Foamy gray tinted head reduces quickly. Aroma is slightly medicinal strawberry, a little sweet, some grains, and musty, spent hops. Taste starts off with some medicinal strawberry that gets more medicinal and a little chalky with time. A little sweet but kind of astringent in a weird way. Strange, musty off-putting syrupy and chalky finish. Grainy. Mouth feel is thin, carbonated heavily and sharp. Not the worst thing I’ve had, but not very good.

Has a nice strawberry smell and a sweet wheaty taste. The strawberry taste is barely there. Just the right amount of sweetness. Refreshing.

Meh. Rated this with another app and BeerBuddy unfortunately won't let me import comments.

Not overpowering on the fruity side, this ale satisfies the thirsty, and suits the savory.

Draft at Reno's East. Redish gold with no head. Smells like mild strawberry. Not too sweet which I like.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy ruby. Mild tart fruit flavor with noticeable alcohol note. Finish is a bit malty and boozy.

bottle - Pours pinkish amber and smells of strawberries. It’s sweet with strawberries, bready malt, and a little hops bitterness. This refreshing brew is pretty good as fruit beers go.
