COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The idea here is simple: combine the big, rich, luxuriant taste of malt with the piquant, tart flavor of fresh strawberries. A fairly high gravity Brown Ale grist provides the former and hand-picked Shizuoka strawberries from the Nirayama fields of our friends at Serizawa Saketen the latter. A berry-like fruitiness from English East Kent Golding and New Zealand Motueka hops helps to round out the flavor profile.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 24, 2010
Draft at the Baird Tasting Room in Nakameguro, pours a great mahogany brown. Just a hint of strawberries on the nose. Not a lot of strawberry in the flavour, but plenty of tartness and rich malt.

Aroma of strawberries, chocolate, caramel. Sweet and fruity flavor with slightly roasthy caramel, dark chocolate, spice, and dark berry fruit, though not explicitly tasting like strawberry. Rich, rounded, full mouth. Nice balance, though on the sweet side. Tasty and interesting, with a slightly earthy finish and tame but solid bitterness. Fun.
