2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow, with huge 3 finger frothy white head. Nice lacing on the glass, all the way to the last drop. Aroma yeasty, buttery. Flavor was bready, buttery, lemon, and hints of honey. No strawberry aroma or flavors were anywhere to be found. Tiny hints of sweetness as it warmed. Acidic, thin bodied, big carbonation. Overall, it was just another wheat beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Rock Bottom in Denver. Poured a bright yellow with a slight cloudiness. Has a deep strawberry aroma. The flavor starts with a bold srawberry kick that mellows out into a nicely balanced wheat. Not a bad beer but nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ok, maybe I’m just prejudiced, but this tasted more like alco-pop than beer to me. Too much strawberry, mingling with some light wheat and malt notes. Not my cup of tea at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in King of Prussia. Yellow, with a white head. Aroma is all strawberry, bit in a good way. Flavor is strawberries, wheat, and some spice.
Body is thinner than expected, and is a little bitter, not sweet as I expected.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Milwaukee Location. Poured a light yellow with a small sized white head. Strong strawberry aroma (reminded me of the strawberry lemonade I usually get at Ruby’s Restaurant). Tastes of strawberries and light wheat. Thinner and watery body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale, neon yellow and clear, with a dash of white for the head. Aroma is mega strawberries, like strawberry Kool Aid powder. Some citric / lemon acidity is thrown in with the strawberry heap for flavor. Very light and fruity. Bing cherry aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 I was looking forward to trying this one as I generally like this style. This draft poured a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. There was a light wheaty aroma. The flavor was surprisingly sweet, bready and had some noticeable wheat notes. There really was not much strawberry flavor but there was a hint of vague fruitiness. It had a nice thick texture. Probably my favorite of the beers we had there.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Rock Bottom Pittsburgh - Homestead, PA] Nice reddish color. Had a faint malty aroma. Initial taste of fruit and nuts with a smooth follow-up. A bit on the watery side, but very drinkable.
