Can. Pours a very pale orange color with a foamy head. Light body, light bitterness. Heavy aromas of strawberry. Grapes and juicy ripe berries are prominent on the back end of the palate. A solid summer sipper on a hot day.

Can thanks to Malec. Light gold with a white head. Artificial strawberry aroma. Tastes slightly less fake than it smells.

Julie says kind of nice. Little straws. Smells sweet but does not taste like strawberry. Julie gives a 2.8 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quality control is a bit lacking -- I bought two cans; one exploded while sitting in the 60 F garage, the other expanded the can. That said, for the style, this is one of the better ones I’ve had. The strawberry notes are prominent, but not offputting. Don’t expect a lot here, but what you get is quite good.

Destihl Strawberry Blonde Ale has a thick, fizzy, crackly, white head, a semi-clear, bubbly, gold appearance, and some fairly heavy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of strawberry, bitter strawberry leaves, vegetable matter, and white bread. Taste is of sweet, bitter, acidic, strawberries, white bread, and some strawberry leaves. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Destihl Strawberry Blonde Ale finishes semi-dry, fruity, and decently drinkable. If you’re into fruit beers (and, I’m not), you might really like it. RJT

12 ounce CaN bought at the Jew Hut .. . gold .. . medium foam .. . strawberry mildness and bitter hay .. . way too much bitterness, feels off .. . there are way better fruited blondes .. . . having a pocket full of sunshine must be terrifying.

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Can - Pours golden with a filmy off-white head. Nose is lightly tart vinegar, strawberry, cider, and plastic. Taste is plastic, strawberry yogurt, and a weird off flavor that is both sharp and overripe at the same time. Thin, fluffy, and well-carbonated.

nealblind (910) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2014
slight haze gold pour very fizzy some white head that vanishes quickly. Aroma bread, yeast, tart underripe strawberries. Tastes yeasty, firm blonde background. slight smear of strawberry jam over the top of bread. slight hop bitter, some butter. sludgy soda palate. pretty good for a fruit beer but needs some clean up.

bigda83 (281) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a mildly hazy golden yellow with an enormous foamy white head. Aroma of strawbeery and belgian yeast. Taste followed the nose with no bitterness. Dry on the palate and finish. Beer was overly carbed. 3/4 of my glass was foam and I had to let it die down to pour the rest. I will say the can design is pretty cool though.

BiiruBierBeer (245) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Smell is a mix of bitter macro beer and strawberry cream. Taste is pretty much the same with those macro beer notes dominating. Finishes slightly bitter. Overcarbed and foamy. Pretty disappointing.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Picked up single can from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Over-carbonation made this beer go BOOM! What ever was left pours a semi-hazy golden straw colored brew with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipated and leaves behind some thin film top and lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, strawberries and a hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium bodied, lots of carbonation with flavors of strawberries, white bread and a touch of citrus. Finish is semi-sweet with a short lived strawberry aftertaste.
