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.

Hazy red-orange pour with a white head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is mostly strawberry with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is strawberry, slight grain, tartness, a little acid. Not a big fan of the finish... slightly metallic. Very artificial flavor. Medium body with no alcohol warmth and moderate carbonation. Blah...

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2009
aroma is of pale malt balanced well with nearly subtle strawberry jam. appearance is straw yellow and points to macerated strawberries and the juice they release. flavor is nice balance of clean, pale and/or crystal malts with strawberry devoid of any overpowering sweetness. however an unpleasant nearly boozy aftertaste lingers. more beer like then the raspberry sam smith’s but more offensive in some regards.

TheBeerGod (5342) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours a reddish tan with a short similar colored head. Aroma is strong strawberry jam and berries. Some candy as well. Taste is equally sweet with strawberry jam, fermenting berries, candy and soft grainy notes. Body is light and very bubbly with subtle tartness. Ends with more strawberry jam, candy, berries and grains.

Dark amber color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of mashed strawberries on the verge of fermenting. Sweet strawberry flavors with just a hint of caramel in the background. Laffy Taffy with some malted milk.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 17, 2009
In the bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Festival. Light amber in color with a very thin white head. Amazing strawberry aroma. Very sweet. Candy sweet in fact. More like a strawberry soda pop. Refreshing in the summer.

Anker (723) - Hillerřd, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle shared with Andreasen11. Pours hazy light brown with a off white head. Aroma is sweet with notes malt, caramel and strawberry jam. It has a very sweet flavour with notes of malt and artificial strawberries, leaving a sweet strawberry after taste. To sweet, but not bad as long as its cold.

jake65 (2730) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 12, 2009
A dull, golden pour with a large sand colored head. Aroma is fruity, rather sweet. Smells a bit like strawberry jam. Tastes sweet and syrupy, the strawberries from the smell have turned from fresh and lively to a bit artificial. Malts are noticable, as well as that little organic earthy kind of thing. Intriguing, to say the least.
