3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-25-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance –The beer pours a ever so slightly hazed orange-amber color with a one finger off white colored head. The head fades quite fast leaving little to almost no lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet of strawberries and some other light fruit aromas of blueberries. Mixed with these are some wheat aromas and a light candy smell.
Taste – The taste is much less sweet and has much less strawberry flavor then would have been anticipated from the nose. It begins with a lighter wheat and strawberry flavor. These flavors create a base for the brew with the wheat staying relatively constant and the strawberry getting slightly stronger more toward the end. Along with the strawberry getting stronger, a light hop flavor of a citrus nature as well as some corn syrup sweetness comes to the tongue leaving a moderately sweet candied strawberry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thinner side with a relatively high carbonation. Good for the style as it makes it easy drinking, but nothing too exceptional.
Overall – OK, but the flavor it leaves on the tongue is a little bit off putting. It would likely be much better on a warm summer day outside as opposed to how it was drunk today; on a cold snowy day inside, just trying to stay warm.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a deep reddish amber color with a small light tan head. The head is quick to fade out and makes no lacing at all.
Smell: It has a very mild cherry and berry like sweetness coming though a light white bready maltiness. Overall it reminds me of a store bought almond ring coffee cake.
Taste / Palate: The flavor has a light thin feel with a balance of mild fruit and wheat. It seems somewhat dry and slightly tart. This finishes with some very light hop bitterness.

A little undrinkable. Like strawberry pop. Maybe good for your girlfriend if she doesn’t like beer. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

This is an ok beer that just quite doesn't seem to match expectations on either end. It's neither fruity enough for fruity beer lovers nor hoppy or malty for the regular crowd.
Has clean crisp taste with a nice finish of strawberry. Long sips won't even get you the strawberry, it's that subtle I feel.
A clean beer for a summer day.
