3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours a hazy peachy orange appearance with a disappearing white head. Spritzy, bright seedy strawberry, a bit tart, juicy fruity aroma. Tangy, bright strawberry, stone fruit/apricot, somewhat tart, juicy flavor with a decent body. A bit too fruit forward and sweet for my taste but not a terrible beer.

Amber with a hint of red colouring. Quite a sweet strawberry nose. Lightly sparkling. Slightly creamy. Slight coconut edge to the aftertaste. A very nice drop!

Pretty strawberry blonde color, a little hazy.
Smells great...but taste is a bit odd...strong strawberry - which doesn’t meld well with the ale flavours.
Not as enjoyable as a lambic...but still a little too sweet.
Not my favorite Sam Smith.

From World Market. Very strawberry. On the negative side it was a bit sweet but it was rather refreshing and like the apricot ale it is more like fizzy juice with ale in it rather than ale with juice in it. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Um, yeah. Tastes like strawberries, and more strawberries. Pretty sweet. Not terrible, but pretty one dimensional actually. My wife liked it, so thats a plus.

Cloudy pink - red beer with a small white head. Slightly soft palate with mild fine carbonation. Vibrant strawberry, with a pleasing combo of sweetness and fruit acid, The strawberry really accentuates the cream in the malt. Just a great strawberries and cream beer!

Appearance: pours an almost opaque reddish to bronze color, thick head initially but fades to a smaller head, head is off white with a pink hue to it
Aroma: can smell this from a mile away, smells like strawberry ice cream, creamy, sweet, tart,
Taste: very sweet strawberry, I may even taste pulp, tart, creamy
Palate: feels heavy in the mouth, low carbonation, leaves a very sweet and tangy aftertaste
Overall: tastes like a strawberry drink not so much a beer, too sweet for a session drink, strawberry rules all the senses
