looks a solid golden in color, has a clear strawberry aroma, tastes strongly of strawberry as well, has a creamy feel to it which complements the strawberry very well, very delicious and refreshing

Pours gold with little head. Smells and tastes of sherbet, add to the taste a strawberry sourness. A bit of carbonation on the tongue.

This beer smelt great, it had an amazingly good smell of strawberrys and the beer tasted strong of strawberrys, one of the best fruit beers I have tasted.

[1538-20080719] Tap. Aroma is a dead ringer for Strawberry Shortcake, the toy not the food. Clear, light yellow brown body with a small long-lasting creamy white head. Flavour is watered-down strawberry cream. Light body. Really odd but light and refreshing.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008
2008-07-19. Yellow body with a small white head. Big strawberry aroma up front is awesome but takes a turn for the artificial and candylike upon further inspection. Flavour is similar and it reminds me a specific strawberries and cream hard candy. Underlying beer is light, with just a touch of bitterness. Average palate is fairly effervescent, smooth. Actually hit the spot after a day of wine sampling, but I personally can’t imagine having more than one. I am probably over rating it, but so be it. Worth trying though if you are into fruit flavoured wheat beers. Draft at the brewpub

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2008
Tapped an off yellow with a foamy white cap. Nose of strawberry and malts with hay and paper. Tastes pretty sweet, of fake strawberry and sugary malts with marsh mellow. Very sweet and spritzy finish. This reminds me of the malt based coolers available at the beer store. Tough to choke down half a glass of this. Ohh my.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
A hazy blonde with a thin cremay white head. Aroma of artificial strawberries and diacetyl, In mouth, waaca!!!!! A rather chemical fruit spritzer with light strawberries. Awful. On tap at brewery, July 28 2007.

Gorbalev (2950) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Same as the blonde, medium yellow, decent sized white head. Mild artificial strawberry aroma. Taste is just plain awful - the artificial fruit is disgusting and it does not mix with the otherwise decent blonde ale. Horrible, the worst beer I have ever had from these guys (and I like their stuff).

CapFlu (4610) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2003
(Draught) Golden body with a quick dissipating, white head. Fake strawberry aroma with slight citrus. Tart with somewhat berry flavour? Fake, dry finish.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2003
Cloudy pale yellow w/ white head. Strawberry candy aroma. Light, carbonated water feel. Tasted like mineral water flavoured with strawberry syrup. Got a little bit of strawberry at first then nothing. Bland and boring.
