3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Hazy gold color with white head. Nose of lemon and wheat, with some mild grassy hops in the background along with faint yeastiness. Flavor is straightforward lemony wheat, slightly tart, with some strawberry flavor coming through in the finish. Zesty carbonation. Good stuff, especially on a hot day on the patio, but it was decidedly lacking in strawberry aroma and flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy orangish-amber... creamy white head recedes to a nice sheeting and sticky lip of lace.
Nice, softer strawberry aromas... it’s a nice balance with the wheaty scents.
Again, a softer strawberry note, but it is certainly there. Wheat and a slightly tart strawberry are on the forefront, but a hoppiness adding a touch of bitterness.
Rather rich without being too full bodied and heavy. A nice, shimmery carbonation. Maybe a little weighty feeling (though it’s only 5.3 ABV, which is different than listed) for me to enjoy it more pleasantly as a session brew... a good fruit-infused beer, though, and one that I would happily have again - minus the slice of lemon. ;)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ON tap at Blue Mountain; ruddy yellow in color, looked a lot like the weizenbock they had on tap. Aroma had a nice strawberry component that blended well with wheat and floral hints. Flavor was not dominated by the strawberry in it, rather it was just one of the components. Other flavors included banana, yeast. Found the finish a bit harsh, but it was still refreshing.
