3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I'm still a sucker for the fruit beer. Effervescent aroma. Flavor like a chewy strawberry granola bar--i.e. slightly fake, but satisfying. Solid head, decent palate, light yellow color. Works for me. (on tap, Pennsylvania Microbrewers Fest 2003)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Definitely smelled of strawberries, but such a strong smell must be from an additive. Light yellow color with a decent head. Strawberry flavor wasn't as strong as the aroma suggests. I haven't tried many fruit beers, but this one was probably average of the ones I've tried.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really enjoyed this brew. It has a nice strawberry aroma and flavor - neither of which are overpowering. Reminds me of Pete's Strawberry brew. I wouldn't want to drink either of them all night long, but 1 or 2 every now and then would be fine by me.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slight strawberry aroma, expected more. Light golden in color. Quickly vanishing head. Cloying strawberry extract taste. overwhelms any other flavors. I did not like it but I have met very few fruit beers that I do like.

strong strawberry aroma, but it's not found in the flavor... it's at best an average wheat...

As bad as the SA Cherry Wheat if not worse. The finish reminded me of a chalky Strawberry Cream saver candy. Downright bad

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straberry wheat is an ill-conceived plan executed only fairly well with this beer. I found strawberry too mild to balance the wheat character. And a bit too candyish. And a bit too sweet.

I'm not big on strawberry beers, especially not wheat ones .
The cherry wheat that Sam Adams/boston brewing/jim koch etc make is vastly better for this type of fruit wheat beer .
I give them credit for trying though .
I only had 6 via the Lancaster sampler pack .
I'm bored with this beer. Drank 3 and offered rest to my wife who wasn't impressed either.(for whatever THAT'S worth, lol )

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong strawberry aroma and taste but what could have been a great beer is lacking. Too much water and not enough taste. A shame.

amber gold with a thinb head. sweet fruity aroma.
taste is slightly synthetic and oversweet yet peasant and even finishes on a tart note.
not bad at all
