COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The small and historical All Saints Brewery is located in Stamford, Lincolnshire - a region famous for excellent fruit. The Samuel Smithís Organic Fruit Beers are brewed and fermented there, then transferred to Samuel Smithís 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.

Not a bad fruit beer. Yellow pink in color with a frothy white head. Aroma of strawberries with some sourness. Taste is sweet. Sugary with a strawberry finish.

Not looking forward to this (or the cherry), as I donít like organic sam smiths, or melbourn brothers...please may it not be pink...good, only a shade of peach, foamy white head atop. Aroma of cotten candy, sugars, and a slight funk, with a bit of (as another rater said) pancake batter. Also some kiwi. Taste is like a kiwi-strawberry smoothie with cotton candi...and a gawd awful aftertaste. The beer is good until then, and then not...Creamy and bubbly. Okay for what I was expecting...

Pours a pink tinted light amber with a tall foamy beige head that has great retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is straw, grass, freshly halved strawberries, caramel, strawberry syrup, apple cider and pancake batter. Flavor is heavy on strawberry juice throughout, there some orange slice with a little rind left on, lime, strawberry hard candy, dusty straw, wheat and sweet barley. Finish is wheat and tart streawberries. Palate is medium thickness creamy and well carbonated with a finish that has a slightly dusty feel to it like some hefes, not bad. Overall this stuff is just too sweet and fruity, without having enough "beerness" to pull it off. I would put it along side some of the Lindemans lineup as a beer to convert people who only drink wine coolers. Fairly tasty but strawberry just masks everything.

pours red, and smells and tastes like strawberry soda. this one is most similar to a italian soda, and is to be enjoyed on a hot day or by your girlfriend who hates beer...nothing terrible, but too candyish...

Gorgeous! Peachy strawberry with plenty of bubbles and a near-white, thick head leaving spots of lacing. The aroma is most definitely strawberry, but a real strawberry, not an air-freshener type smell. There are slight sour and peach notes as well. Palate is both smooth and carbonated, but a little thin. Flavor may be a bit too strawberry-ish for many to finish the entire bottle, but I enjoy the sweet-tart taste. Extra points in overall category for being organic.

Unclear reddish of color with a reddish white head. A sour aroma with notes of red berries and strewberries. A flavor of red berries and sour strawberries.

I donít think this is nearly as bad as people seem to think. In fact, I donít think this is bad at all. True, if you donít like sweet beer, you will almost certainly hate this one. But I try to rate objectively, and besides, I like something sweet now and then. Color is reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma and flavor are very rich strawberry. Nothing subtle, but I like that it really tastes like strawberry, and not artificial flavoring.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium pinkish-amber. Aroma is notes of peach/plum/strawberry/etc. candy. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Hope ya like soda pop. A liquid Jolly Rancher candy, little more.
