I tried this after trying the raspberry beer, which I really enjoyed. This one? Not so much. The smell is a bit too overpowering with the strawberry aroma. Itís also overly sweet.

Really just not a strong fruit beer offering. It tastes like strawberry crush soda.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

What a wonderful strawberry aroma. Nice balanced taste with hints of malt to counterbalance the sweetness of the strawberries. pours a nice peach color and finishes smooth.

Bottle from Liquor Loft. Hazy orange pour with a smallish white head. Aroma of alcohol and strawberries. Taste is juicy sweet berries and creamy vanilla. Figure it accomplished what it was trying for - strawberry brew for sure.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: slight haze with strawberry hues that carry through into a fluffy head. Rose hips and tulips, soft and daring to be touched.
Nose: strawberry ice, strawberries and cream. Leafs from strawberry tops and a bitter tannic nip of the seeds linger in the back. White cake. Orange cream. Freeze dried strawberries.
Palate: soft and fluffy with strawberries atop white cake. Floats almost like a strawberry cloud in my mouth while bitter skins and orange peel linger in the front. Faint powdered sugar essence. Strawberry stems and leaves in the back of each swallow.
Final Thoughts: not overly complex but quite tasty. The lightness of body allowed her flavors to float and delight instead of cloy and disappoint. A solid fruit ale if I do say so myself.

500 ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Peach colored pour with a white head. Smells just like strawberry jam and the flavor is a about the same with a sweet finish. Nice beer if you like strawberries and I do!

11/26/10. Light amber pour that hints at pink with a fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces a surprising amount. Huge strawberry aroma, almost like candy, with hints of dry grass. Super , SUPER sweet strawberry flavor - itís too much. So sweet I donít pick up on much else. Meh.

Surprising beer. Nice colour, fizzy and medium bodied. This organic beer develops clear aromas of strawberries and malts. After checking, it seems that strawberry taste is not artifical, but organic and natural. But most of the time, strawberry aromas taste "fake" and "artificial", even if theyíre not. By the wau, a sweet and good beer, accordind to me.
