2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Bottle with Octo on the kissing seat and some fish and chips- it ruined the moment. Misting orange, low patchy white head. Sugar free strawberry cordial and white mice aroma. Immediate, drying artificial sweetener (none declared) and air freshener (ditto) taste with salvaging fruit juice streaks. Lingering saccharine bitterness. Poor fruit beer. Struggled with half a 355ml bottle.

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.

I am a big strawberry fan so I found the aroma to be absolutely lovely. It’s basically BIG strawberries and not much else save a bit of malt. The appearance is red-pink-gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but a bit less strawberry taste than I had expected. The palate is smooth. Overall a very enjoyable drink even if there isn’t much "beerness" to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly pink with a big fluffy head, translucent and amber. Aroma is strong strawberry fruit roll-up, flavor is very candy. Better than expected, less beer than expected. This is like a soda. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma - how to describe this? so many sensations! Oh wait, there’s only one: strawberry jam! and not some quality homemade strawberry jam. the poor grocery brand that smells artificial. Smells like a strawberry fruit roll up.
Appearance - cloudy amber with minimal head
Taste - Like the bottle says, strawberry. The flavor is strawberry jam with hints of beer rather than the other way around. It is a struggle to get through a whole glass of it because of its strawberry taste, and I love strawberry’s. Also present in the taste are strawberry’s, and more strawberry jam.
Palate - At least it doesn’t feel like strawberry’s! Creamy slick texture, light body, soft carbonation with a abrupt finish.
Overall - We must add a caveat here. If you are looking to drink strawberry jam or sickly sweet is your kind of flavor profile then this beer is right up your alley. This is a beer that had strawberry added to it while, to our dismay, we were hoping for a beer brewed with strawberry and infused with hints of it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice combination of subtle sweet strawberry juice and a light but full-bodied beer, there is a good combination of beer and fruity flavors here. Similar but removed from a typical framboze style, there is much to be said about the way its flavors meld with one-another.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
OK, I know these are a novelty but when you’re hot and thirsty, this beer hits the spot. Pours a cloudy amber with a red tint and a big creamy off white head. the aroma is tart strawberries. The flavor has the sweet and sour strawberry taste. Crisp and clean finish. Get to be ice cold and drink it fast and you’ll love it.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Very strong strawberry jam taste. Almost like drinking straight juice. This beer will turn off a good number of hardcore beer drinkers, but I liked it. Rated 4/4/10

From a 500 ml bottle pours a golden color with red highlights and an off-white head and light lacing. Nose is very much strawberry. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is dominated by the strawberry as well. The smoothness and drinkability make the is better than average fruit beer.
