COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The small and historical All Saints Brewery is located in Stamford, Lincolnshire - a region famous for excellent fruit. The Samuel Smith’s Organic Fruit Beers are brewed and fermented there, then transferred to Samuel Smith’s Brewery, in Tadcaster, for conditioning, aging, and packaging. The complex multiple yeast strains used to ferment these beers lead to a beautiful marriage with pure, rich Certified Organic fruit. Tasting notes: Strawberries offer a soft and subtle flavour, making the character of this fruit beer extremely sophisticated and refined. The smooth malt and aromatic strawberry flavours merge together in an elegant fashion, with the fresh flavours of ripe strawberries shining through.

Well, I love strawberry stuff so is it possible that one of my favorite brewers fucks this up? Lets find out. A rough pour creates a very large foamy light tan cap. The brew is pretty much straight up amber. Minor lacing. The aroma is massively sweet strawberry jam with strawberries covered in strawberry syrup made of strawberries which were held in a jar that previously held strawberry stuff and also has a pic of strawberry things on the label. Strawberry. Mixed in just enough with some caramel and what seems to be vanilla (thx someone else) to alter the aroma enough. So much strawberry candy here and it’s sooooooooooo sweet. The taste is pretty much all strawberry sweetness.. massive sweetness. I don’t care. I like strawberry. 10 550ml bottles of this would create the worlds’ greatest vomit and hangover in recorded time. Strawberry jam / candy / extract / everything with some caramel...... Super soft carbonation, sticky teeth, fulfilling body, finishes drying and mouth watering. No length to the aftertaste. It’s candy in a bottle. I like but Melbourn Bros was much better... I think... time for a comparision!!!!!

Sampled on 12/9/2009. This fruit beer pours a light strawberry color from a 550ml bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is strawberries, malt and sweet. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of sweet to semi sweet strawberry flavors. Not a lot of hops. It’s a little too sweet for me. It would be better with some hops or some tartness. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Pours a five+ finger light almost pink head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear pink/amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Strawberry nose. Flavor is sweet strawberry but not cloying, hops are hidden, like drinking fizzy liquid strawberries. $5.59 for a 550ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Hazy red-orange pour with a white head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is mostly strawberry with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is strawberry, slight grain, tartness, a little acid. Not a big fan of the finish... slightly metallic. Very artificial flavor. Medium body with no alcohol warmth and moderate carbonation. Blah...

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2009
aroma is of pale malt balanced well with nearly subtle strawberry jam. appearance is straw yellow and points to macerated strawberries and the juice they release. flavor is nice balance of clean, pale and/or crystal malts with strawberry devoid of any overpowering sweetness. however an unpleasant nearly boozy aftertaste lingers. more beer like then the raspberry sam smith’s but more offensive in some regards.

Bottle. Pours a reddish tan with a short similar colored head. Aroma is strong strawberry jam and berries. Some candy as well. Taste is equally sweet with strawberry jam, fermenting berries, candy and soft grainy notes. Body is light and very bubbly with subtle tartness. Ends with more strawberry jam, candy, berries and grains.

In the bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Festival. Light amber in color with a very thin white head. Amazing strawberry aroma. Very sweet. Candy sweet in fact. More like a strawberry soda pop. Refreshing in the summer.

Bottle shared with Andreasen11. Pours hazy light brown with a off white head. Aroma is sweet with notes malt, caramel and strawberry jam. It has a very sweet flavour with notes of malt and artificial strawberries, leaving a sweet strawberry after taste. To sweet, but not bad as long as its cold.
