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?

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 (5094) - 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.

Pours hazy gold with little head. Real strawberry aroma and flavor, blessedly not overly sweet. Or even very sweet at all, leaning more toward tart. Not bad at all!

Pours a hideous murky yellow with zero head, but the aroma and flavor of real strawberry make it worth it. Nice hint of fresh strawberry, not overly ripe/ sweet and doesn’t have as much of that fruit cereal artificial sweetness in the Abita version.

Bottle - has a murky applesauce color it with no head. Didn’t really detect a fruity taste of any kind from it. Pass.

keepersj12 (2758) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2012
A very intense strawberry aroma waifs from the bottle. The beer is a pale yellow with a small fading head. The flavor has a bit to much strawberry for my taste but it is tart and refreshing.

Pours a fizzy pale yellow with very fine seltzer like bubbles. Heavy amounts of flocculation. Funk, Horseblanket, and urine with hints of strawberry. Infected fo sho

blipp (6329) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Natural strawberry aroma, lightly sweet. The flavor has natural strawberry notes with a hint of tartness. A plain malty base allows the fruit to feature, with no real added sweetness. Surprisingly good.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Hazy golden color/ fleeting white head. tart strawberry jam, honey, vanilla aromas. Light bodied with average co2. Lightly sweet strawberry, honey biscuit, bready malt flavors--decent fruit brew.

Decent fruit beer. Had on tap at local pub. Kind of tart strawberry ale instead of sweet, which I liked. Really good natural tasting strawberry notes. One critique would have to be the slight hind of peanut in the malt profile. The taste of the strawberry was very good and this would go well with spicy seafood!
