3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It pours a hazy reddish pink color witha small disappearing off white head. The aroma is full with strawberries. maybe even a hint of cherry with a bready malt backbone. It definitely smells dessert-like. The flavor has more sweet strawberries, a little bread, sugar and light cream. Pretty spot on for what they’re advertising here. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Pretty light bodied too, although substantial enough to support all the sweet flavors. The strawberry character stands out and seems pretty authentic and pleasant to me. Pretty well executed, which impresses me, but I’m not sure why anyone would want this beer form.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I very rarely like non lambic strawberry beers but this was pretty tasty. +++ Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark brown color with faint orange-red highlights and a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet strawberry jam and yeast. The flavor was strawberry jam - but not overwhelmingly sweet - with a white bread note underneath. Long strawberry jam finish. Medium body. Poundable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Nearly clear medium golden amber, off-white head, blobs and bands of lace. Taste is mild caramel malt that adds only the lightest hint of strawberry. I don’t get any cream. It is light, it is enjoyable, but the description doesn’t match my experience.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with suspended particles and a very thin head. Tastes like old strawberry candy, musky grains, and some corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like old strawberry candy, musky grains, and some corn.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Can smell the strawberry and cream. Taste follows with a bland lactic sweetness. Not that great. Just bland and sugary and sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle, stamp on bottle says 06/22/16 so I assume that’s the bottled on date. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy amber/reddish color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like strawberries, strawberry shortcake, lactose and some bready/grainy malt. For the most part I think the taste is just like the aroma, but with some strawberry jam noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and easy enough to drink. I’m glad I got to try this one, $2.79 a bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber with a short beige head.
Strawberry, cream aroma.
Taste is sweet, sugary strawberry, sweet bread, sugar....
Scent and flavor are remarkably close to exactly replicating a real strawberry shortcake.
