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.

Pour is a pinkish with a large white head. Aroma is an crazy amount of strawberry. There is no way this could all be fresh strawberries coming all the way across this pond. This has to be artificial. Flavor is super sweet like eating strawberry preserves. It’s ok if you like strawberries. I have the other Sam Smith fruit beers to try and I expect them to be about as good as this.

ManVsBeer (5671) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Keelham Farm Shop, West Yorkshire. Slightly hazed amber coloured ale with a small head. The strawberry is fairly stated in both aroma and taste with a slightly soured finish.

AgentAle (1047) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Aroma is sweet strawberry and sulphur. Taste is sweet malts and an almost completely consuming strawberry flavor. Thankfully I don’t get the syrup flavor of synthetic strawberry but real full fruit. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

Not bad for a fruit beer but not as good as others like Red’s Strawberry Ale. The strawberry is strongest in your nose an d just hinted at when you drink it. More of a champagne feel than beer.

355 ml bottle shared by Gurthnar, thanks!
Copperish, hazy body, with a small, creamy, white head.
Sweet aroma of strawberry jam, perfume, sweet toothpaste.
Taste is even sweeter, with strawberry jam, toothpaste, some honey.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes sweet, with strawberry.

Much too sweet and one-dimensional for me. No beer character left and the strawberry also doesn’t feel natural.

Gurthnar (2935) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Aroma really strong artificial strawberry. Almost clear copper colour. Organic taste, notes of certification and hints of refermentation. Strong flavouring, not at all natural feeling. Lost all connection to beer.

This is the best fruit flavored ale I have tasted. It is too sweet for my taste. It does taste of strawberries and the hops are well matched.

Bottle. Lactic strawberry malt and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with giant off-white head. Sweet milky strawberry malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Nice body. Good.
