3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a redish-amber with a small fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of sweet cereal malts, a sweet yeast and an overwhelming scent of strawberry’s. It tasted mildly sweet with notes of sweet malts and strawberry’s in the beginning and finished with a fizzy explosion of strawberry’s on the palate that lasted an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was suprisingly light in body and syrupy yet watery in texture. Overall and exceptional fruit ale.

Pours murky red with average pink head. Aroma is strawberry, caramel, soap. Medium+ sweet, light bitter, light sour, short finish. Some funk and sourness could help fighting the overall sweetness, now it’s just about some soda pop, good though.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Light bronze, very few small bubbles, thin head; Aromas of fresh strawberries and cream, sweet rhubarb; Sweetish on the palate though not sickly, with a lovely sherbet spritz, medium body and full flavour intensity - though one-dimensional - of strawberries. If looking for a sweet fruit-beer which implicitly tastes like what the label says, this will be right up your street; If looking for a well-balanced beer with notes of fruit, this is probably not for you. Drinkable nonetheless - maybe one for the "Guilty Pleasures" chart...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sip in Tallinn (€ 4.20). BB Feb 2017. Pours a rather surprising hue of orange with perhaps only a hint of something reddish (possibly my imagination, or the dimly lit room). Head’s small, off-white, showing some lace. The aroma is... hahahhaah, oh man, that’s some really straightforward strawberry lollipop... Wild strawberries rather than from the garden. But somehow in a lollipop shape, that’s for sure. Yet... strawberry Fanta from the late 1990s comes to mind. Tastes likewise, an overly sweet (sugared) fakeish wild strawberry flavour. No beeriness to be found whatsoever. Softish on the palate with very mellow carbonation, yet somehow more harsh and less soothing than the raspberry one had. Overall... too much like a soft drink, a sugar-loaded lemonade, even somewhat chemical in that regard. Teenagers would probably love to down this in shady areas if it were much cheaper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orangish light amber. Heady, good strawberry aroma. Mix of some English esters. Mineral vanilla oaky. Same taste, nice. Fairly sweet with some tartness and mild dryness. I really like this.
