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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle. Poured a redish-amber with a small fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of sweet cereal malts, a sweet yeast and an overwhelming scent of strawberry’s. It tasted mildly sweet with notes of sweet malts and strawberry’s in the beginning and finished with a fizzy explosion of strawberry’s on the palate that lasted an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was suprisingly light in body and syrupy yet watery in texture. Overall and exceptional fruit ale.

Amber pour with a light haze and white head. Strong strawberry aroma. Over-powering strawberry taste. All fruit, but not much beer.

BuckeyeBoy (5782) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2016
500ml bottle pours a apricot color topped with a sand head. Nose is big sweet strawberries vanilla and a light tartness. Taste is more of the heavy strawberry sweetness some vanilla and a odd end.

StuartC (70) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Light bronze, very few small bubbles, thin head; Aromas of fresh strawberries and cream, sweet rhubarb; Sweetish on the palate though not sickly, with a lovely sherbet spritz, medium body and full flavour intensity - though one-dimensional - of strawberries. If looking for a sweet fruit-beer which implicitly tastes like what the label says, this will be right up your street; If looking for a well-balanced beer with notes of fruit, this is probably not for you. Drinkable nonetheless - maybe one for the "Guilty Pleasures" chart...

sjogro (2447) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle shared at THT July. Clear dark golden with thin white head that dissolves quickly into some sparce bubbles. Big sweet strawberry syrup, jelly, on a malty backbone, little dust and taste of sugarreplacements. Over medium sweet. Medium or over mediumbody with soft carbonation.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle from Sip in Tallinn (€ 4.20). BB Feb 2017. Pours a rather surprising hue of orange with perhaps only a hint of something reddish (possibly my imagination, or the dimly lit room). Head’s small, off-white, showing some lace. The aroma is... hahahhaah, oh man, that’s some really straightforward strawberry lollipop... Wild strawberries rather than from the garden. But somehow in a lollipop shape, that’s for sure. Yet... strawberry Fanta from the late 1990s comes to mind. Tastes likewise, an overly sweet (sugared) fakeish wild strawberry flavour. No beeriness to be found whatsoever. Softish on the palate with very mellow carbonation, yet somehow more harsh and less soothing than the raspberry one had. Overall... too much like a soft drink, a sugar-loaded lemonade, even somewhat chemical in that regard. Teenagers would probably love to down this in shady areas if it were much cheaper.

jmohno (1507) - Iowa, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Pours an orangish light amber. Heady, good strawberry aroma. Mix of some English esters. Mineral vanilla oaky. Same taste, nice. Fairly sweet with some tartness and mild dryness. I really like this.

rondphoto (3964) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 7, 2016
bottle @ Liquor Barn / Lexington KY --- Big aroma of strawberry jam and light malt. Clear medium amber with a blush of strawberry color, thin off-white head cover, thin lace strands. Taste is somewhat sour malty strawberry flushed by strong carbonation and sweet jam on the swallow. The residue at the finish grows nicely sour. Kinda sweet ’n sour strawberry with Lambic overtones. But, mostly very easy to drink on fresh warm afternoons.

martjoobolut (2888) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2016
0,355L bottle (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours hazy amber with faint pinkish hue and big whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is very sweet, soapy, strawberries, vanilla. Flavor is sweet and bitter, strawberry jam, shampoo, and some wheaty notes. Overall: drinkable. Too sweet and too much soap-shampoo, but it is a strawberry beer as promised..
