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 at the Princess Louise, Holborn. Rosè pink, with a bit of carbonation. Fresh strawberry aroma with a slight earthy malty tinge. The expected sweet fruity taste is balanced by a muted bitter. Nice beer overall but the palette is too weak and too carbonated. Overall: an uncomplicated but perfectly drinkable fruit beer. A surprisingly satisfying treat.

kdm1984 (646) - Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours to approximately a finger length head; sporadic lacing. Mild aroma of slight strawberry. Taste is like a light strawberry jam. Not as tart as I was expecting. Light, easy drinking fruit beer. Great for summer months and post-exercise refreshers.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Färgen liknar jordgubbssaft. Söt stor doft av solmogna jordgubbar. Söt som söt cider men väl kyld och med isbitar blir det minre markant, mycket jordgubbar, lätt syrlig och med en lätt men närvarande efterbeska. Jordgubbssmaken är verkligen fantastisk. Riktigt fint en varm sommardag.

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy strawberry orange with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is sweet strawberries, light honey and biscuit malt with a faint earthy character. Flavor is sweet strawberries, honey and biscuit malt, light tartness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

superspak (2537) - Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big juicy strawberry, white sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal. Fantastic aromas with huge strawberry presence and balanced malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big juicy strawberry, sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal. Some slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of strawberry, white sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness and balance of juicy strawberry flavor and malt sweetness; with minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. Huge robustness of strawberry flavors and balanced malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark orange to brown color with a nice two and a half finger white foamy head that lasts for about a good thirty second before it dissipated into a lumpy foaminess. The lacing was there and fairly thick in parts. The smell was all about the strawberries. They came across super sweet. The taste was sweet strawberries and it had a nice long sweet strawberry aftertaste that seemed somewhat refreshing as well. The wasn’t much of any finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body and shows a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation feels pretty light but still decent for the style. Overall, what a nice strawberry beer. This one is definitely well worthy to have again and will most likely show up on Summer evenings after dinner.

Pours a light red pinkish color. Smells of strawberry. Taste is strawberry with a slight maltiness to it. Finish is clean. Body is light and the beer is slightly sweet. Pretty straight forward.

First review. Love the bottle, somewhere between a bomber and a regular 12 oz. The smell of this beer is very noticeable, unlike some beers that do not smell like their underlying fruit. This one IS strawberries. Taste was good, but a strong sourness lingered. Not like drinking a lambic. Overall a good fruit beer.

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Erdbeeren, gering malzig, so ist auch der Geschmack.
