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 (49) - 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.

That was a nice with a good mixture of sweet and sour. Honestly said I don´t really believe them if its organic because of that great first nose full of the ripest strawberries you can imagine. The taste is well balanced with some special moments and a crispy finish. Thumbs up !

McTapps (4575) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a hazy light red-brownish colour with an low head and medium to thin body. Aroma of de-frozen strawberries. Taste of watery strawberries, artifical, leaves, mild berries. Medium sweetness. Not that bad actually.

tonypreto (123) - Akron, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle poured into pint. Amazing strawberry heavy aroma. Quick dissapating white head. Pours a pink hued light gold. Strawberries over power any other flavor and make it far too sweet for my liking.

Samuel Smith’s Organic Strawberry Fruit Beer has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly opaque, rust-red-orange appearance, and extremely heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of overwhelming strawberry juice, with a bready background. Taste is more bread oriented, with a strawberry juice and acid background. Bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and somewhat slick, and this beer finishes wet and sweet. RJT

Darkmagus82 (1823) - - NOV 25, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed red tinted color with two fingers of just off white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a strawberry jam smell with a little bit of a bread smell as well. Taste – The taste begins with a super sweet strawberry jam flavor, which really dominates the taste throughout. A little bit of grain comes to the tongue toward the middle, but this is very light, with the majority of flavor being strawberry. In the end a little bit of sourness of a mostly lemon variety comes to the tongue, leaving a lightly sour strawberry jam flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. For the very sweet strawberry the thinness and carbonation are perfect really making for an easy sipping brew overall. Overall – A desert beer certainly. Sweet but rather authentic in strawberry. A good go to if looking for something sweet and fruity.

gegwilson (1460) - 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.
