Bottle poured into pint. Amazing strawberry heavy aroma. Quick dissapating white head. Pours a pink hued light gold. Strawberries over power any other flavor and make it far too sweet for my liking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Samuel Smith’s Organic Strawberry Fruit Beer has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly opaque, rust-red-orange appearance, and extremely heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of overwhelming strawberry juice, with a bready background. Taste is more bread oriented, with a strawberry juice and acid background. Bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and somewhat slick, and this beer finishes wet and sweet. RJT

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed red tinted color with two fingers of just off white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a strawberry jam smell with a little bit of a bread smell as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a super sweet strawberry jam flavor, which really dominates the taste throughout. A little bit of grain comes to the tongue toward the middle, but this is very light, with the majority of flavor being strawberry. In the end a little bit of sourness of a mostly lemon variety comes to the tongue, leaving a lightly sour strawberry jam flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. For the very sweet strawberry the thinness and carbonation are perfect really making for an easy sipping brew overall.
Overall – A desert beer certainly. Sweet but rather authentic in strawberry. A good go to if looking for something sweet and fruity.

Bottle in the Anchor, Guisborough. Pours hazy rose with a thin cream head. The taste is strawberry purée and sherbet. A bit of an odd aftertaste. Slightly synthetic tasting despite being organic and very sweet. OK.

Recht künstlich in Geschmack und Geruch. Annehmbar, aber eher ein schwächerer Vertreter der fruchtigen art.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: heavy strawberry aroma--that seems almost artificial.
Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white initial head. Cloudy, medium amber body.
Taste: moderately sour, strawberry initial flavor and heavily sweet, strawberry bubblegum finish with long duration.
Palate: medium-to-full body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: despite the fact that this is organic, it tasted like liquid bubblegum.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from English bomber a hazy, golden hue. Aroma straight up front of berries, both strawberry and raspberry. hops and field grass seem to sneak through as well. Flavour is of course, full on strawberry, with a hint of cherry goodness. Ends well with a slight tartness, that doesn’t take it away from its overall meaning. finishes a bit dry, yet somewhat sticky. Impressive beer, even though not my style.

from Bier-Bienne - fully cloudy orange-brown beer with a little foam left; huge aroma of strawberry ice cream; marmalade and candy sugar; very sweet, light sticky, chewy aftertaste of strawberries bubblegum - cloying and ugly but my youngest son loves it

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like strawberries and maybe whipped cream. Texture is kind of watery, light foam, and very little fizz, kind of like drinking soda after it is almost (but clearly not) flat. Tastes like tart strawberry jam with natural sweetness. Aftertaste is similar with just a TINY hint of bitterness and is medium to long length.
