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. Editorís note: Same as Heiner Brau Strawberry?

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, 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 Iím 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 thereís no strawberry here at all.

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

rosenbergh (6699) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Marcelloís Wine Market) Lafayette, LA.
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a tiny white head. Strawberry pie in the aroma. Nothing else really. The flavour sweet caramel and maybe a hint of strawberry. The aroma changes a bit with the sediment added... itís a bit more tart. Quite bad brew. Watery.

blipp (6072) - 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 (5800) - 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.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2013
The cap easily came off, almost like it wasnít sealed. Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strawberry and grain notes. The flavor is pretty bad with some rotten strawberry notes as well as some grain. Medium mouthfeel and no carbonation - the beer was completely flat.

kramer (4905) - 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 Iíve 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.

unclemattie (4167) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2012
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)
