pours a dirty light red-brown with thick rocky slightly pink head. very fruity aroma, sugar and berries mostly, like candy. similar flavor, overly sweet but also fairly tart. itís really more candy than beer, but itís not bad, and not quite cloying. a bit effervescent and somewhat slick. not very lambic-y, other than slight sour notes.

Fantastic natural strawberry flavor, whioch is hard to come across in a ny form. Itís like those all natural fruit roll-ups you can get at Smoothie King, you can feel the grain left by the pressed fruit. My only regrets are that it was not more sour and the body was a little thin.

Drank during the 2009 FA Cup final, come on you toffees! fuck chelsea up!! .. . before i even open the beer, 1-0 everton, good start, just like this beer, Wonderful fresh strawberry aromas, with some light olde world wooden bucket and some very light musk .. .. Pours a dark pink-ruby colour, with a very respectable head ring, good swirls .. . Tangy and sweet, light light tartness, with a very pure strawberry flavour, medium finish .. . 1-1, just like the scoreline the beer evens out, very refreshing stuff!!A great strange little beer, that really isnít to involved but generally enjoyable.. .

Damico (2356) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2009
The beer connoisseur who sold me this beer told me that it was a subtle strawberry flavor that tasted more like that of a nut brown ale, in the tradition of Newcastle. Boy was he dead wrong! When you pour this fruit beer you can see a deep, rich maroon color and a medium-sized head. This opaque lambic beer from England has a rich, sweet berry smell from the minute you pour it into that thin lambic glass. Because I enjoy sweet beers, this was very easy on my palate. This could prove to be too sweet for beer drinkers not keen to this flavor. It has a smooth, subtle carbonation flavor throughout the mouth before you swallow. Overall, I love this sweet lambic beer.

VertBaconStrips (2022) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
To get in the mood for this brew I wore leather pants and only did up the top button on my shiny shirt. Amazingly strong stawberry jam fumes made me drool instantly. Small thick head stuck around till iíd finished it and the beer was dark reddish brown and clear. Liquid strawberry jam that has a nice tart feel to it and smelt kinda like it was warmer than warm. The tannic after taste was excellent. A litre or two wouldíve made for a better night; but I can just imagine the blinding crippling hangover the next day...oh, and waking up next to my wife still wearing the leather pants wouldíve been an awkward moment...

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark tan color with a large beige head. The aroma was strong tangy and tart strawberry jam. The flavor was tart and mouth puckeringly sour with a strong strawberry jam element. The finish was long, very tart and sour. Very nice.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Unfiltered? Cool. Dense, dark brown-colored red body, white head, thick, patchy lacing. First whiff is strawberry skins, but becomes more candied (slightly sweeter) with time & temp. Musty lactic acid and peppery cream develops in the nose over time. Mildly prickly, somewhat fluffy up front. Candy sweet jollyrancher watermelon, strawberry, generic-berry across the middle, considerably sweet but works well as a dessert beer/fruit beer delivery mechanism. Mild but lasting sour milk note stays put well into the finish. Nice for what it is.

Bottle. Clear reddish amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma of strawberries, cream and yeast. Sweet strawberry flavor up front with a hint of vanilla and a somewhat tart finish.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle. Amber/copper color. Short, pinkish head. Strawberry aroma - candy-like. Sour/acidic flavor of strawberry. Like Lambrusco. Metallic notes. Not that beer-like. Ok, though.
