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.

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a murky deep gold with off-white head. Aroma is very fruity with strawberry and added notes of a bit of farmhouse. Flavor is sweet, strawberry with a light malt back bone. Mouth fill is medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Sickly sweet strawberry- like ice cream strawberry syrup. Too sweet and overloaded on fake strawberry flavor.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle. Hazy amber-orange body, thin buff head. Nose of honey, strawberry, and spice (perhaps coriander). Sugary body with spices and strawberry, finishing with caky esters and a hint of alcohol. I’m not a big fan of the blend.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle purchased at Pauly’s in Lowell. Live Rate! Pours an almost syruppy amber color with lazycarbonation and a fleeting beige head. Smells of muddled berries and faint yeast. Tastes of strawberry jam, biscuity malt, and straw. Not bad. A bit heavier than I was expecting for the style.
