Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Clear golden color with a small white head. Grainy aromas, with some malt and a faint hint of strawberry. Light and refreshing. Thin body, watery on the palate with little flavor to speak of. Some malt sweetness comes out though.

"for a lighter (blonde) beer, the aroma and taste, while still light, sure are a little harsh. barely detectable sweet strawberry aftertaste. really not worth buying, but then again, i haven’t had a Pete’s beer yet that was."

Petes Wicked Ales were some of the first craft/non-Bud style beers that started me on the road to realy good beer. This one poured a clean and clear, golden color with a thin white head that faded quickly. The aroma was a pleasant blend of light malts, wheat and strawberries. The flavors were light and subdued. Light malts, light wheat, light honey sweetness and some tart strawberries. The body was light with a slick texture and very little carbonation. Overall it was a good summery beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09220-0832. I do not know how old this bottle is because it came with a coat of dust on a shelf in the corner of a convenience store. But it is a copper-yellow color with busy carbonation building up to a quick fizzy head. Strawberry notes are predominant on the nose with some vaguely roasted malts and a slight hop feel. Smooth and creamy body. The strawberry was not as obvious in the taste. It tended to have a buttery, malty flavor. I think this was an older bottle b ut it seemed to hold its own alright.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance- A golden yellow with a tint of orange, poured white head that quickly dissipated
Aroma- Fresh and clean with a hint of berry
T/P - Nice sweet taste very very slight strawberry/berry flavor not bad if you don’t mind a fruit beer.
very smooth almost reminds me more of a cider than a beer
Overall- Not a bad beer, not the best but not bad. Would be very good on a hot summer day at a BBQ

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I think this is the starter beer for people looking to try one with fruit. Aromas of strawberry and a hint of wheat. More carbonation than necessary. The flavor is strawberry, along with some pale malt and wheat.

All I can smell in Pete’s is just a hint of strawberry, though the kind you get out of the freezer. There is a hint of strawberry in the taste as well, along with malt, but I really barely tasted anything at all. Combine that with the thin body, flat carbonation, and non-existent head, and this is one to pass on.
