Bottle shared by bu11zeye. Sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is strawberry jam and flavored candle wax. Uneventful finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with an white head. The aroma is strawberry nothing else. The flavor is the same as the aroma. I get a lot of strawberry notes but nothing else. The beer is just as fruity as the Samuel Smith Organic Raspberry, but doesn’t seem to be as well executed. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The taste is kind of like a cross between strawberry pie and beer. There isn’t much hops in this though, for better or worse. It’s a very unusual beer, to say the least. Very sweet, but not as sweet as it could be, which is good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle… Lightly hazy orange ale with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is an odd, unpleasant mélange of strawberry and pale mash with a splash of vomit. Medium-bodied with bristly carbonation. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a suggestion of tartness. Sweet, fruity, mildly buttery finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from BBC in Pembroke. I was expecting something pink, but it pours out clear amber, slightly reddish. The aroma is subtle strawberry. The flavor is also dominated by the strawberry. Not as sweet and over-powering as I expected, though. I am not sure I’d ever want to try this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy golden brown into a shaker. Tan macro head quickly recedes to nothing leaving no lacing. Strawberry jam aromas. Immediate bitter crisp strawberry seed turning to sweet jam in the center and back to the bitter seed.

Bottle at KØ10. Distinct sweet strawberry aroma. Sweet strawberry flavour. Tastes OK, but is a bit like a softdrink. Clear amber colour.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Bottle with Octo on the kissing seat and some fish and chips- it ruined the moment. Misting orange, low patchy white head. Sugar free strawberry cordial and white mice aroma. Immediate, drying artificial sweetener (none declared) and air freshener (ditto) taste with salvaging fruit juice streaks. Lingering saccharine bitterness. Poor fruit beer. Struggled with half a 355ml bottle.
