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.

VoodooBear (48) - San Juan, - MAY 10, 2014
Presentation: 19.2 oz brown bottle, served in a pint glass. Appearance: Cloudy amber color, with a one finger head that dissolves into a layer of foam that stays over the beer at all times. There’s no lacing at all on the glass. Smell: It smells strongly of strawberry hard candy. It’s a very sweet scent. Taste: Very sweet, just like the nose. Strawberry and malt flavors are all that’s here, there’s no bitterness. Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, with high carbonation. It gets quite cloying after a while, but it’s not a big issue. Overall: A very sweet beer with huge strawberry flavors and scents. Not revolutionary or special to be honest, but a very fun experience and a must have for fruit beer lovers.

gegwilson (1378) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle in the Anchor, Guisborough. Pours hazy rose with a thin cream head. The taste is strawberry purée and sherbet. A bit of an odd aftertaste. Slightly synthetic tasting despite being organic and very sweet. OK.

Recht künstlich in Geschmack und Geruch. Annehmbar, aber eher ein schwächerer Vertreter der fruchtigen art.

Rated from notes taken 27 Aug 2011 -- This was a much better beer than I recalled. Subtle fruit and refreshing taste.

Hanuta06 (346) - Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: heavy strawberry aroma--that seems almost artificial. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white initial head. Cloudy, medium amber body. Taste: moderately sour, strawberry initial flavor and heavily sweet, strawberry bubblegum finish with long duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation. Overall: despite the fact that this is organic, it tasted like liquid bubblegum.

CelticBrew (845) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Pours from English bomber a hazy, golden hue. Aroma straight up front of berries, both strawberry and raspberry. hops and field grass seem to sneak through as well. Flavour is of course, full on strawberry, with a hint of cherry goodness. Ends well with a slight tartness, that doesn’t take it away from its overall meaning. finishes a bit dry, yet somewhat sticky. Impressive beer, even though not my style.

Bov (9674) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2014
from Bier-Bienne - fully cloudy orange-brown beer with a little foam left; huge aroma of strawberry ice cream; marmalade and candy sugar; very sweet, light sticky, chewy aftertaste of strawberries bubblegum - cloying and ugly but my youngest son loves it

BiiruBierBeer (214) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Smells like strawberries and maybe whipped cream. Texture is kind of watery, light foam, and very little fizz, kind of like drinking soda after it is almost (but clearly not) flat. Tastes like tart strawberry jam with natural sweetness. Aftertaste is similar with just a TINY hint of bitterness and is medium to long length.

jjsint (873) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle at the Princess Louise, Holborn. Rosè pink, with a bit of carbonation. Fresh strawberry aroma with a slight earthy malty tinge. The expected sweet fruity taste is balanced by a muted bitter. Nice beer overall but the palette is too weak and too carbonated. Overall: an uncomplicated but perfectly drinkable fruit beer. A surprisingly satisfying treat.

kdm1984 (699) - Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours to approximately a finger length head; sporadic lacing. Mild aroma of slight strawberry. Taste is like a light strawberry jam. Not as tart as I was expecting. Light, easy drinking fruit beer. Great for summer months and post-exercise refreshers.

Vignale (2142) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Färgen liknar jordgubbssaft. Söt stor doft av solmogna jordgubbar. Söt som söt cider men väl kyld och med isbitar blir det minre markant, mycket jordgubbar, lätt syrlig och med en lätt men närvarande efterbeska. Jordgubbssmaken är verkligen fantastisk. Riktigt fint en varm sommardag.
