COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This product is a malt beverage with natural flavors added. Real strawberry puree is infused into our classic Cream Ale to produce the unique flavor of our Strawberry Ale, hence a hint of strawberry sediment is to be expected in each bottle. Editor’s note: Same as Heiner Brau Strawberry?

This isn’t too bad for a light fruit beer. The strawberry is the dominant flavor. Its a little medicinal and candy-like, but at least its not too powerful. If it were even more subtle, I would even consider this a session beer. As it is, its flavor is a bit too off-putting for more than one in a row.

Oh wow this is tart badness. Just tart strawberry? No. Tart strawberry leaves. Smell and all. Nasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle... Pours murky and golden with thousands of small, white yeasties floating around. No head. The nose is muffled, but I’m able to extract notes of grist and mildly acidic apricot. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and nearly-expired carbonation. The flavor is slightly tart, providing notes of apricot and wheat. Finishes tangy, but thin. Certainly thirst quenching, but there’s no strawberry here at all.

From notes - sample pour - pours opaque/off-white w/ hints and traces of pink strawberry remnants. Nose is of fresh strawberries and strawberry jam, maybe floral notes. Tasted of cream and light fruit sweetness with strawberries. Lighter in body.

When we had this beer on draught, we thought it tasted exactly like the cereal Trix. When we bought it bottled, it was water-y yet too sweet. It was not pleasant to drink out of the bottle. The most redeeming quality is that it pours pink, which is interesting and unexpected.

12oz twist-off bottle. Cloudy golden color. White fizzy head of big bubbles. Loads of floaties. Aroma of pale malt and strawberry puree. Taste of pale malt, light strawberries, not overly sweet as most fruit beers can be. Finishes like Frankenberry Cereal, without the sugar. Simple, but still turned off by those floaties.(3331)

coolpop (1372) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, very pale yellow with a medium-sized, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is vaguely strawberry, kinda grainy. Flavor is mild strawberry, some malt. Points for subtle strawberry flavor. Light mouthfeel, as is appropriate. Drinkable; not a whole lot of flavor.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
355mL. Clear straw. Diminishing white head. Sugary plastic nose we sweet fake strawberry syrup. Taste is super bland and Suddy with hydrogen peroxide. Pretty bad. Very watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a light gold color that had a little bit of haze to it. Poured into a pint glass and had a small head. As expected, strawberry dominated, but lacking depth along with some aromas of grains and a bit of malts as well. Medium bodied with a decent feel. The finish and mid is a bit clipped along with flavors of strawberries and grains. A easy drinking and nice beer. Nothing all to memorable, but solid enough.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Pours a slightly murky and hazy pink tinged body with a frothy white head lhat looks like it actually looks like it has bits of strawberry in it. The nose is pretty well all strawberry, and it really smells like natural fruit. Surprised to actually like the aroma. The flavor reminds me of not-quite-ripe strawberries. Pretty nice, it doesnt taste fake or artificial like most strawberry beers I’ve had. Its not overly sweet either, just a light maltiness below the fruit. Lighter bodied but with a certain soft almost creamy texture to it and soft fizzy carbonation. This was surprisingly good, and the overall best beer that I had from Heiner Brau.
