On draught at Dave’s Bellport Cold Beer and Soda’s table at the North Fork Craft Beer Festival at Peconic Bay Vineyard. Pours red with a brilliant pink head. Pleasant floral aroma with citrus notes as well. I really don’t pick up the strawberry in the nose. The flavor is floral and citrus with perhaps just a bit of strawberry showing through. Light-medium bodied.

Had no clue what to expect from this one. It’s interesting. I was surprised by the reddish pour. The flavor is a nice fruity taste -- slightly sweet, and not in your face. Overall, surprisingly enjoyable.
