3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized head. Yeah strawberries and ginger - too me, they just did not mix well together. Thinner and somewhat watery body.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
"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."

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid post-Centrum vitamin urine yellow with minimal off-white head and heavy carbonation; less than a fingernail of head here. Nose is ginger and strawberry up-front, , mild hops and pale malt. Tastes watery, with notes of strawberry, ginger, mild hops and malt, and not much flavor in the finish. I can see the sorority crowd liking this, but it does not merit a high score in the ratebeer scoring system.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 wasn’t 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light orange with just a slight haze to it, not much of a head. Aroma has some strong ginger notes, just a hint of strawberry. Flavor is a nice melding of the strawberry and ginger initially. After a while it turns a bit cloying and artificial. Back end has a bit of a minty flourish to it. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a yellow-golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and sweetish Frankenberry cereal. The flavor was tart Frankenberry cereal, pineapple, bread, artificial sugar and a hint of cactus. Medium length tangy, artificial sugar and Frankenberry cereal finish. Medium body. Eh.
