COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The small and historical All Saints Brewery is located in Stamford, Lincolnshire - a region famous for excellent fruit. The Samuel Smithís Organic Fruit Beers are brewed and fermented there, then transferred to Samuel Smithís 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.

An opaque copper color, frothy head with high retention, and heavy lacing. Smells like strawberry jam! Tastes like strawberry jam as well. I have a sweet tooth and I'm loving this right now. If you're one to dislike sweet things, I wouldn't recommend it, but it is highly recommended to anyone who does. While it says it's made with fruit juice, it doesn't taste artificial to me, which is a huge plus. Like a heavily carbonated juice. I can't believe I didn't try this sooner! I kept passing it up for the other Sam Smith stouts (also awesome) but I'm interested in their other fruit beers now. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from an 18.7 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-brown color with a large orange-white head. The aroma was intense and incredibly strong sweet strawberry jam. The flavor was strong tart and sweet strawberry jam. The finish was long with tart strawberry. Wonderful!

Holy cow. Anyway. Popped at home and poured into a tall goblet (closest I had to a flute). AROMA: Strawberries. HUGE aroma of strawberries, ripe, sweet, and delicious. Slightest hint of malt. APPEARANCE: Absolutely gorgeous cloudy deep peach pour with a thin pale peach head that leaves a surprising amount of lacing. TASTE: Knocked me over. Sweet, but not ridiculously so - certainly not soda sweet. Has a lot of the natural berry tartness remaining, along with a gentle malt back-end that carries you to the finish. PALATE: A bit heavy - the only downside to this beer. Itís not light enough to be an opener, but itís perfect as a dessert beer or a breakfast beer. OVERALL: Wow. If Iídve had this the first time I tried beer, Iíd be an alcoholic. I could drink WAAAAY too much of this stuff.

Amazing. Really fruity, strawberry aroma is epic, bright and floral. Color is red berry soft color. Taste is strawberry, sugary sweet, not too sweet.. Beautiful upbeat light crisp summer beer. Palate is just right, doesnt stay too long, no hop to note. Overall it works, taste like I want strawberry beer to taste

This was amazing - one of the best fruit beers Iíve ever had. The nose was crisp and refreshing, and heavy with strawberries. Appearance was a phenomenal, deep red. Taste was off the charts - extremely tart, just the right amount of sweetness. Loaded with lots of tingling carbonation.
Itís not really all that beery, but itís a phenomenally refreshing and delicious beverage.

Pours a clear golden amber color with a very thick long lasting head. Scent is that of strong sweet strawberries. The taste reminds me of a delicious strawberry smoothie in the summer. Very nicely made and blended. I understand that there are some people of there that donít like flavored beers, but if you like fruit beers...this is a must try beer!

Stumbled onto this by mistake and has become one of my favorite "dessert" beers to date. (dessert meaning, "instead of eating a pint of ice cream, Iíll have a pint of this). Rich in color with a truly remarkable aroma, this fruit beer totally changed my mind as to the limits beer can go with fruit flavor. Although not for everyone, it will be a sure hit with the girlfriend or wife when it comes to, "címon, honey, lets have one more!"

Honey-colored, clear, no head. I was a bit skeptical, but I should have known that Sam Smithís would bring it. The aroma is - well, strawberries - fresh ones, too. My favorite thing about this beer is that it doesnít have a hint of artificial taste. It has a nice balanced mouthfeel as well, not too alcoholic, but you donít forget that itís an ale, either.

Bottle. A- Strawberries. A- Reddish color, cloudy liquid, reddish white head. T- Strawberries, medium sweetness. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, fruity finish. O- Has a slight medicinal taste, but not overly so. A fine strawberry ale that is strong in flavor yet smooth in palate.
