A good fruit beer. Not exactly the best wheat beer ever, but the strawberry side of the brew was very accurate. Unlike many fruit beers I felt that this one actually tasted like strawberry. I would put it a notch or two under Pyramid.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 Looked great, great color, no real head. Had a nose of strawberry soda that accurately foreshadowed the beer that was to come. Too thin on the palate. Taste was of artificial sweet strawberry flavor, with a little wheat and no real hoppy characteristic. Chemical overtones to sweet finish. not as bad as the phrase drain pour implies, but drain pour none the less. I see now need to finish this; who needs the calories or the alcohol. Give me a framboise lambic.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Strong strawberry/banana nose. Bitterness on initial taste which quickly dissipates. Strawberry sweetness increases throughout swallow rising to a very sweet strawberry finish. Little head retention.

Draft at the Manayunk beerfest in Phila. Good fruit beer. Someone making a beer with a different fruit. On the sweet side. Nothing wrong with it just not my mug of beer.

Not bad for a fruit beer but I guess im not a lover of these types. Had a smooth strawberry flavor and aroma but just had a certain bite to it that was wierd. Not for my tastes.

Beer doesn’t knock you over the head with a strawberry fruit taste. It’s very faint. Not a bad flavored wheat beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sour fruit and wild strawberry nose, bit of hops. A clear, amberish gold with small lacing head. Medium fizziness with light body. Had nice level of hops and bit of sweet maltiness. Initial taste of strawberry was tart with smooth, sweet finish. The aftertaste was an uncomfortable saccharin strawberry that reminded me of Captain Crunch Berries or Boo-berry cereal. An odd bitter as well.

Nice flavor. A little heavy after a few but excellent with a bowl of chili or a plate of hot wings.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2004 Tried this one again for the first time in years. Strawberry is there in the aroma and flavor, but not overpowering. However, it has an acrid aftertaste, and has big, aggressive bubbles, which take away from it for me. There are better choices out there.
