Cloudy rose gold, white head. Strawberry and wheat on the nose. Palate is wheaty, very well balanced, medium bodied. Strawberry and wheat flavors balanced with a nice bitterness that keeps it from being sweet. Thiz is one of the most solid fruit beers i’ve tried.

Hazy-murky amber color, decent off-white head. Fresh strawberries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Quite dominating real strawberry flavor in this brew. Malty with low bitterness. Leaves kind of salt licorice aftertaste. If you love fruit beers, this is a good one for you.

I had this while on vacation and on my way to the Goonies house in Astoria, OR. I was intrigued by this beer, but after trying my future wife’s Amber Ale I regretted my choice. Appearance is cloudy as hell, a mixture of orange and strawberry with creamy head, looks very fruity like a smoothie. Aroma also very fruity. Taste is dominated by strawberry, slight malt backing, more like a fruit drink than a beer, definite summer beer, OK but not my cup of tea.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Draught. Poured cloudy yelllow with thin fast dissipating head. Much lacing. Fruity aroma, strawberries and citrus. Tart flavour with a strong strawberry tinge. Speedy hop finish, again with a sweet edge.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Absolutely turbid, opaque pink-tinted yellow amber with nearly no head. Low aroma of fresh strawberries and cereal. Pale cereal malt flavour with a kiss of real strawberry juice. Finish is slightly tangy. Subtle and easy to drink, I think this would be really nice on a hot summer day.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. Pours like a glass of tangerine juice with a minimal white head and nil lacing as well. Strawberry and raspberry aroma. Light body with a tart fruity character mostly consisting of strawberries. Touches of sweet malt as well. The finish is fruity and soft with a short strawberry aftertaste. Just average overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Portland trip. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a very cloudy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong sweet and sugary malts with fairly strong strawberry presence. The flavor was wheat and sweet with only a touch of strawberry. Medium finish and body. Decent but the the taste does not live up to the nose.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Tap at brewpub.
Pours an average autumn leaf brown with an aroma of hoppy raspberry malt. Flavor is gritty nut with a slight fruit syrup finish. Nice mouthfeel that allows the flavors to shine and linger on the palate. Not usually an amber fan, KAggie liked this one.

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
Hazy beige-blonde. Doesn’t have much aroma. Flavour is a soft & sweet fruitiness and unobtrusive blonde ale background. Admirable restraint, if nothing else.
