COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strawberry season reminds us that summer is almost here. This sexy blonde ale would not be complete without the seductive essence of strawberries. Balanced and refreshing, this blonde is sure to please!

A pretty mediocre bonde. The strawberry qualities are pretty understated and there’s a mild stale aftertaste.

Clear gold with a very faint reddish tinge. Small fizzy white head. Little lacing. I could smell strawberry perfume as soon as I opened the bottle. Lots of strawberry in the nose, some yeast esters, maybe a bit of graham cracker. Very light body, very active carbonation. This is definitely a blonde with strawberry. You taste the blond ale underlayment, then the strawberry. There are some noticeable floral hops in there too. It would be a bit less awful if they’d skipped the strawberry and just made a blond ale. Like two separate beers that had a front end collision.

On tap. Comes golden pink with a small white head. Aroma of strawberry soda. Taste is strawberry soda, fruit, malt, and grain. Tasted artificial to me.

Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of strawberries, plenty of ’em! Taste is slightly funky light bitter, some strawberry sweet but not as present as in the aroma. Almost like tea in the finish. Body is light and smooth, soft carbonation.

The aroma is reminiscent of strawberry wafers and yeast, and the appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The taste is an awkward blend of a slight sourness and a touch of sweetness, and the palate fuses a finish that is full of strawberry flavor, a medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

seymour (1659) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured an odd pinkish-hued golden colour with long-lasting white foam and a little lace. Profoundly strong strawberry aromas and flavours. Extreme, not balanced at all, but that’s obviously what they’re going for, because their Box of Chocolates and other flavoured beers are the same way. They are very proud of using natural strawberries, but it seems no matter how you extract the essence and dissolve it in an alcohol solution like this, it ends up seeming like a plastic Strawberry Shortcake doll. Not horrible, but not my kinda thing.

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. Berry soda aroma. The taste starts off with a strawberry flavor that sort of rests between enjoyable and medicinal...and wraps up with the taste of grass clippings and grain. Finishes crisp and clean. Could be a session beer, and overall is pretty taste minus being a bit thin and weak. 4.5% alcohol.

Headbanger (3536) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2013
12oz bottle 7/20/13 (Judicious Spirits-Mtn. Home)-40° in Hurricane Glass-Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of strawberry. Taste of strawberry, grains, and cough syrup. This light bodied brew is not bad but the back end is a little syrupy.

This 22 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. It poured a slightly hazy gold color with a moderate white head and light lacing. The nose was caramel malts and strawberry. Light in body and clean in the mouth. The flavor is a good balance of malts and fruit. This was a true thirst quenching day that would good well on a summer day.
