2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Transparent, pink-tinted straw body. Light as hell with good clarity. Topped with a stark white head that fizzles down to a thin skin quickly. I can best the describe the aroma as what I’d expect a big-ass strawberry flavored gummy bear to smell like. Loaded with sweet strawberry, but with more of a candy essence than the actual fruit. Almost juice like. Taste is more on par with a wine cooler than a beer. Reminds me of watered down strawberry Kool-Aid, actually. Only mom didn’t add the recommended amount of sugar because she watched too much Dr. Oz that week. Juicy strawberry fruit candies & that’s about it. MAYBE a touch of grain... Maybe. Thin, wet body. This reminds me of something you’d expect from Arbor Mist or Boone’s Farm, only a bit more vapid in terms of flavor intensity. That said, it’s not bad. Not at all. It’s just not very much a beer.

On tap at the brewery. Literally strawberries in a glass. Very light and drinkable. Perfect for the style.

This one poured a bright pink color with a fluffy slightly pink hued head. Aroma was pretty much of strawberries and nothing else really. Flavor was similar, pretty much strawberry juice, a bit thicker and sweeter than I was hoping, but still a very solid fruit beer.

Draught at Rattle´n Ham, NYC 120906. Yellow beer with a minimal head. Sourish, berries and citrus aroma. A bit sourish and a bit berry flavour. Feels like a light kind of sour beer...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. The strawberry here is rather light. Wheaty base, a little hay, with a soft and restrained tartness. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Pale yellow beer with a very small head. Sourish fruity aroma, banana, spices, hay, leather notes, grapes, some barnyard, floral and with quite nice hops showing after a while. Floral hop flavor, sourish, raspberry notes, vinous, some barnyard, hay, herbal and with floral notes. Thin body but quite nice flavors. A bit underrated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ RnH (Kuhnhenn and Perennial night) with Andy and James. Pours pale yellow with ample white head. Weak aroma - you can get some strawberry if you swish it around (might just be that it’s a flight glass). Light, sweet fruit notes - very subtle strawberry. Light tart quality. Underwhelming.
