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.

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius Wines, Edinburgh [0813]
Dull murky amber, thin white rim
Aroma - Strong sweet strawberry, strawberry candy, slight artifical note, no beer underneath
Taste - Sweet strawberry, bit tart, sweet sugar syrup. flavour more natural than aroma, not getting the beer underneath
Palate - Medium carb and body. Extremely sweet, more so than the other Sam Smith’s fruit beers, far too sweet. Finish as main flavour, sweet sugary strawberry
Overall - Far too sugary sweet - I almost felt my teeth dissolving away when drinking this beer.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with red highlights and a one finger light pink head and light lacing. The aroma was dominant with fresh whole strawberries that were lightly tart from the start before finishing up with a touch of sugary sweetness and wheat. Taste starts with strawberry fruit juice and transitions into a lite malt flavor, with some mild hop bitterness. Toward the finish there is a mild tartness and then a long, lingering strawberry flavor. Body is medium with moderate carbonation and a somewhat light syrupy terxture.

Bottle at PIB, pours an opaque red with a small pink head. Nose is pure strawberries, very fresh and vibrant. Taste is the same, with a very pure and impactful depth. Fairly sweet, but not cloying. Very nice girly fruity drink.

Ehhh. Not sure beer is the right word. It is sweet with a slight tang which may be beer or it just might be a slightly off strawberry taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (5553) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Well designed 500 ml bottle. Pours a bright red color with a large white head. A huge strawberry nose. The flavor is also dominated by rich earthy and sweet strawberries, very distinct, light sweetness. Frankly, this is a solid beer despite being a bit sweet. Enjoyable.

keanex (1278) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2013
The neck is stamped SI04L1.
Appearance: The body is a murky brown to pink color with a tall tan head, the head has average retention but settles into a thick coating.
Aroma: The aroma is strawberry through and through, but it’s more reminiscent of strawberry water ice or those strawberry dum-dum pops. It gets to be a bit too much over time.
Taste: The flavor is strong of artificial strawberry with sweet to slightly tart flavors, this is not going to be an easy finish alone unlike the apricot version.
Palate: Medium bodied, lively carbonation.
Overall: Not a huge fan of this, but it could easily be loved by those who like strawberry cocktails. This is very approachable.
