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.

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

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle: The aroma has lots of strawberry, but I’m also getting blueberry. It pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with strawberry, but it tastes more like blueberries as it builds to the finish. The finish has some moderate grassy hoppiness along with some spice. Medium bodied with very mild carbonation. Solid...I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

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

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!
