2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. (Marcello’s 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... it’s a bit more tart. Quite bad brew. Watery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The cap easily came off, almost like it wasn’t 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
