kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a minimal short lived fizzy white head. The nose is like smelling a Jolly Rancher candy, strawberry flavoring with significant sweetness and some light apple. The flavor is amazingly like a strawberry hard candy, it’s very sweet and full of artificial strawberry. It’s like those hard candies with the gooey strawberry jelly stuff in the center. Light bodied and a bit sticky with fizzy carbonation. Little kids might like this one.

Danyel (1073) - Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Can. Pours clear orange with fast dissipating white head. Aroma is strong of artificial strawberry, strong berry, very sweet. Taste is really fake strawberry, candy, sweet, high sugar, light bodied. Not very good.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear light rouge with no head, no visible carbonation. Fake, sweet strawberry flavor. Acidic. Slightly spritzy. Wine cooler, not beer. Pure crap.

Transfer from BA review on 8-21-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – As could be seen from the clear bottle, the beer pours a golden amber color with a lot of carbonation streaming up through the brew. Upon pouring there is a super fizzy white head of one finger that fades almost instantly leaving absolutely no lace or foam. Smell – The aroma is a mix of hard cider and a hard candy strawberry smell. Really nothing else could be discerned. Taste – The taste begins with a big apple juice taste mixed with some lighter notes of caramel and strawberry. As the flavor advances the caramel fades with the apple and strawberry getting stronger in flavor. These flavors take the taste to its end, leaving a sweet apple –strawberry juice mixed with a hard cider flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very thin with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are appropriate for the cider like characteristics of the brew. Overall – Very sweet and cider like and not really beer like at all. If you want a cider with some strawberry flavor then this is a decent choice, but if looking for something with beer characteristics then you may want to steer clear.

"Shouldn’t have expected any more, but this is some weak ass s---. Clear golden, no head, even more generic medicinal aroma and flavor than the apple. Very much like a wine cooler, and not a good one. I feel like a whore for drinking this, and a bigger whore for adding it."

Starts with a strawberry/apple sweetness that mellows into a mild (almost wine-like) alcohol flavor. Smooth and pleasant.

Artificial and natural strawberry aromas. Crystal clear amber, thin head that quickly vanishes completely. Definitely more of an apple character on the palate, but strawberry is detectable. Cloying, but the fizziness makes it palatable, a fool’s bargain. More like alcopop, or at best cider, than beer. It reminds me of the Apple Slice soda that Pepsi made in the 1980s before discontinuing it because it was fermenting in school vending machines.
