Mostly yellow in color. I’ll be damned if they didn’t find a way to sneak the flavor if the dessert in this beer! Berries, cereal grains, doughy malts. Cool!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Wheat, malty with a hint of honey and strawberry. A little floral. Think Franken Berry cereal.
Appearance: Hazy yellow color with thin white lacing / head.
Taste: Malty bread / cake, transitions to a sweet honey, lactose sugar then comes the strawberry and a hint of bittering hops to keep this beer grounded.
Palate: Thin, soft and a hint creaminess from the residual sweetness. Has very slight bitter finish
Overall: I enjoyed this beer. It stays iight and lageresque without hitting you over the head with flavor. I can certainly pick out the Hotter than Helles base beer. It achieves its goal of offering a strawberry shortcake flavor much like the CCB muffin ales do.
