2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Straw body with sediment, thin tight off-white head. Nose of strawberry purée and biscuit. The effect of the strawberry is a bit different in the body, where it adds a tannic, tart element to the otherwise light biscuity, grassy body. Not very sweet. Bland and a bit off-putting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a clear yellow with an average whtie head. Aroma is of nice fresh strawberries. So much so it makes me think there is someting artificial about it. Flavor is strawberry and some sweetness that brings things down a bit. Finish leaves a strawberry sweetness on the tounge. It’s ok if you like strawberries. There are tons of things floating in this. This would be a beer my mom would like.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light gold with a decent white head. Aroma of sweet strawberries. Taste is strawberries, a bit of malt, and a touch of grain. Too sweet for me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 12oz bottle, courtesy of Boston Beer. Thanks! Pours a hazy, deep golden color; modest retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Loads of pulpy strawberry jam in the aroma, without much else; certainly sweet. Medium body; medium, fine-bubbled carbonation; following the aroma, there?s just a ton of strawberry jam here, accompanied by basic sugary sweetness and not much else. Finish is residual sugar and berries.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear orange with a nice white foamy soapy head that leave a film. Aroma has a faint strawberry scent like a fruit role up and grain and malt. Taste is lager all the way with more strawberry fruit role up and chap stick. Palate is thin and slightly slick with a dry finish in an off putting way. Maybe when its 90 degrees outside this could do the trick.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Rodman’s, 4/20/13
Aroma: The nose is extremely sweet, giving off lots of artificial strawberry and candied sugar
Appearance: This one pours a gold color, with a white head thats leaves some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste, just like the nose, is over-the-top sweet and full of strawberry candy flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, and it would probably have a decent feel if it wasn’t so cloying
I wasn’t a fan of this one at all. It is too sweet and too cloying to even be palatable, and after drinking less than half I had just about enough and passed it off to the wife. She, on the other hand, really like it.

Bottle... Poured pale golden with a nice white head. Nice lacing. Aroma had artificial candied strawberry notes. Biscuit and cracker-like malt notes mixed with an intense strawberry fruitiness. Soda pop-like. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized creamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish, tangy and had light notes of artificial sugar and artificial strawberry. The flavor was tart and tangy with moderate artificial sugar and artificial strawberry. Medium length artificial sugar and strawberry finish. Medium body. Blah.
