3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A really great nose: fresh strawberries, really natural. The flavor isn’t quite as good, some berries, sweet sugars, dry earthy wheat. Decent. A bit rough.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottles from Frank Smith’s and Capone’s. Pours chill hazy dark straw with clingy off-white head. Nose is strawberry-Quik, hopcitrus, earthy lemongrass. Tastes tart, with notes of strawberry, almost a strawberry lambic-like tartness level, with some hopcitrus, semi-sweet malty honey sweetness at mid-palate, and a tart finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear pale golden, with a few floaties in there as well. Big robust white head. Strawberry and bubble gum aroma. Taste is a non-descript but balanced and refreshing lager, but with the sweet, somewhat peculiar, addition of fruitiness. Has a slightly harsh finish after the swallow, like I just chewed an aspirin. I tried to be open-minded in my judgement here, not being a fruit beer fan, but this is rather meh. Not bad, but something I don’t want to imbibe again.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweetish strawberry, with a light wheaty base, and just a hint of citrus. A tad on the artificial side, but decent nonetheless.

6300th rating! 12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a large white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big strawberry notes, some earthiness, citrus and pale malts. The taste is candied strawberries and faint pale malts. Thin-medium bodied. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Strawberry malt aroma. Medium with large head. Lightly sweet lemon and strawberry malt and hay flavor. Really not too bad - should replace Cherry Wheat with this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance of this beer is clear amber with an abundance of fine sediment, which makes the beer hazy overall, and with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma hits you boldly on nose without overpowering you and smells somewhere between strawberry soda and stewed strawberries, and the taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, much like a raw strawberry, which is quite pleasing; however, the palate isn’t exciting or fitting because the medium body feels out of place with the lively carbonation, sticky texture, and abrupt finish that call for a much lighter beer, especially because this is a lager.
