"Brewed with ginger as well, and the ginger is a far more dominant presence than the strawberry. The aroma is mainly ginger with a slight berry finish. As with most BB brews, light bodied to a fault. Flavor is pleasant and nearly mirrors the smell. This brewer knows how to spice a beer, but too often they have a weak base, and that’s the case here too. The mix of ginger and berry would be really really nice in a saison, but in this blonde, pretty mediocre."

It’s like drinking dirty water, no strawberries on the nose or ginger....what a disappointment

The aroma is strawberries and malt without much else. The appearance is golden with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma with little ginger. The palate is average for the style. Overall middle of the road beer.

bottle - Light amber-gold pour, white head... it smells of strawberries but in an artificial way somehow. It’s sweet and light bodied, a drinkable but bland beer.

Sampled at the 2013 Artisans Craft Beer Festival. It poured a golden pale color with a small white head. The aroma was of strawberries. The taste was similar to the aroma. It had a light to medium body with average carbonation and a heavy feel of strawberries. It was decent.

You can definitely taste the strawberries and ginger. It has a slight aftertaste of a cough syrup.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent amber with no head. Aroma is mixed ginger and strawberry. Med body. A bit fizzy. Flavor is clearly strawberry - almost fresh - followed by some nice mildly spicy ginger. The malt is subdued. Very refreshing beer.

Pours a golden orange with active carbonation and a white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and ginger. The taste is lightly sweet with a slight butter offset highlighted by the ginger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
