3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

355 ml bottle shared by Gurthnar, thanks!
Copperish, hazy body, with a small, creamy, white head.
Sweet aroma of strawberry jam, perfume, sweet toothpaste.
Taste is even sweeter, with strawberry jam, toothpaste, some honey.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes sweet, with strawberry.
Much too sweet and one-dimensional for me. No beer character left and the strawberry also doesn’t feel natural.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma really strong artificial strawberry. Almost clear copper colour. Organic taste, notes of certification and hints of refermentation. Strong flavouring, not at all natural feeling. Lost all connection to beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is sweet strawberry and sulphur. Taste is sweet malts and an almost completely consuming strawberry flavor. Thankfully I don’t get the syrup flavor of synthetic strawberry but real full fruit. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the best fruit flavored ale I have tasted. It is too sweet for my taste. It does taste of strawberries and the hops are well matched.
