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.

Bottle poured into goblet. Extremely strong aroma of strawberry jam. Appears a cloudy orange/ red/brown color. Taste is mostly of tart strawberries and sweet dough. Carbonation also matches perfectly. Excellent beer for when the ladies are over.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours a hazy peachy orange appearance with a disappearing white head. Spritzy, bright seedy strawberry, a bit tart, juicy fruity aroma. Tangy, bright strawberry, stone fruit/apricot, somewhat tart, juicy flavor with a decent body. A bit too fruit forward and sweet for my taste but not a terrible beer.

Amber with a hint of red colouring. Quite a sweet strawberry nose. Lightly sparkling. Slightly creamy. Slight coconut edge to the aftertaste. A very nice drop!

Pretty strawberry blonde color, a little hazy. Smells great...but taste is a bit odd...strong strawberry - which doesn’t meld well with the ale flavours. Not as enjoyable as a lambic...but still a little too sweet. Not my favorite Sam Smith.

From World Market. Very strawberry. On the negative side it was a bit sweet but it was rather refreshing and like the apricot ale it is more like fizzy juice with ale in it rather than ale with juice in it. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Um, yeah. Tastes like strawberries, and more strawberries. Pretty sweet. Not terrible, but pretty one dimensional actually. My wife liked it, so thats a plus.

Cloudy pink - red beer with a small white head. Slightly soft palate with mild fine carbonation. Vibrant strawberry, with a pleasing combo of sweetness and fruit acid, The strawberry really accentuates the cream in the malt. Just a great strawberries and cream beer!
