bottle. Golden with small head. Light bodied with very mild strawberry. The ginger is kind of a distracting flavor to me.

The bear before this one I was able to choke down. This one went right down the drain.

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle, screw-top. Somewhat vomit-inducing nose, sweet and fruity with herbal and medicinal notes, some vomit in itself and ginger. Sickly cloudy pale orange body with a hissing off-white head. Taste isnít that bad, though, the strawberry is slightly muted at first but does manage to really get its hooks in, ginger is a little more subtle but actually adds something (but that something is not heat). Malt is very light and delicate, soft as wheat. Not all that sweet, but not all that clean, either. Medium-full body, does the job!

redtechnj (201) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Appearance- Hazy reddish orange. Thin white head. Quickly disapears with little to no lacing. Aroma- Sweet strawberry with a nice ginger balance. Flavor- Sweet/tart strawberry, little grassy, pretty big ginger hit mid-way through.

Bottle. Smells like bile.... Iím not sure if Iím going to be able to drink this one. Iím a mom who raised two boys, and I learned to handle mud, worms, blood, poop, and some other gross things, but I never learned to handle vomit. My husband always had to handle that particular clean up duty. Slightly hazy honey gold with a small off-white head. Thanks to the smell I was only able to handle a few sips which were sour-bile-maybe strawberry flavor. All I could think about was the time when one of the boys was in jr. high and threw up his strawberry oatmeal after running a cross country meet. I tried to be objective, but this was obviously impossible and a drain pour for me.

Bottle courtesy of Ken. Pours a light plain amber body with light haze. Aroma is vomit and strawberries. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of dull strawberry artificial flavor.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent golden-orange with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of strawberries and ginger. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as pleasant. Average on the palate. Easy to drink and okay for what it is.

12oz bottle, pours like a golden pale lager. Aroma heavy on the strawberries, taste is of the same. Generic tasting strawberry flavor that overtakes the beer, even drowned out the ginger. light to medium body, average carbonation, thick feel of strawberries, cloying taste. Overall, drinkable, decent.

Pale golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is super sugary and sweet. Lightly tart with a strawberry sour candy sort of thing going on. A bit of grass, straw, and malt sweetness. Certainly tastes like a sour strawberry candy. Some sugar, a bit of malt, grass, and a little bit of spicy ginger.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up honey, toasted grains, artificially-sweetened strawberries, and ginger.. not a whole lot interesting or enticing going on, but it wasnít offensive. The flavor found light bready notes, honey, and grainy malts at the core, with tacky, mostly sweet strawberries around.. finished tacky and dry, picking up a hit of ginger. Lighter-bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. sweeter than I wanted.. meh.
