Surprisingly good- very light and not cloyingly sweet. None of that dirty flavor that tends to happen when fruits are added to light beers. Very well balanced and still easy to drink.

Bomber bought in Florida. Strawberry aroma with notes of sweet cream and a bit of hay maltiness underneath. Pours pale golden colored with a thin white head that has some retention and good lacing. Starts with sweet strawberry flavors with a bit of hay maltiness to go with a lively mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with a lot of sweet creamy sugary flavor. Pretty nice, maybe a touch too sweet at the end but overall quite good.

Bottle from the brewery. Slightly hazy gold color with a small white head and lively carbonation. Light aroma of fresh strawberries. Flavor definitely brings in the cream but the strawberries are there too. You can still taste the pleasant base beer too. Very nice.

Bottle: Poured a straw yellow color ale with a nice foamy head. Aroma of strawberry shortcake with some light vanilla notes. Taste is also a mix of sugary notes of strawberry notes with some vanilla notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Weird and not sure these are all natural flavours – not something I would have on a regular basis but glad I tried it.

Strawberry nose with a straw yellow color. Taste is tart berry followed by a vanilla flavor on the back of the tongue. Strawberries taste like fresh ones vs a concentrate. Too sweet for everyday drinking but a nice treat for dessert.

Strong strawberry nose with hay underneath. Clear golden, medium head, decent lace. Strawberry and hay, more equal proportions. Medium body, easy carbonation. Base beer seems to be pretty nice. I think I’d prefer this without the fruit.

Cigar City Strawberry Shortcake is a Florida seasonal but not much more. Straw yellow pour that required some shaking to get a head. Aroma is definitely strawberry and malt. Taste is strawberry but not a real sweet version. It is nicely balanced with the malt, but not much more complexity. Cigar City Strawberry Shortcake probably appeal more to the casual beer drinker.

Aroma is a strawberry bomb. Pours a golden yellow with champagne lacing. Taste is fruit-forward; strawberry but not overwhelmingly sweet. A little bit of wheat, maybe, and some crisp hops. Mouthfeel is light, effervescent, and slightly dry. Finishes with a lingering, light sweetness.

Bottle thanks to somebody! Pours clear golden, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is lactose sugar, biscuit malts, berries. Hmm. Flavor follows, it really does taste like strawberry shortcake. Wow. Fairly sweet, berries are m uted, lactose and biscuit malts are more forward. Interesting. Medium body.
