0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I tried this stuff a few years back. If awards were given for beer that was so TERRIBLE that it was almost genius, this beer would have collected one. This offering was so bad that one just had to laugh…really it was hilarious! I don’t think that most brewers could come up with something of this caliber if they tried for 3 years strait, yet somehow the wrecking crew at Sprecher managed to pull it off! I tip my hat to you Sprecher, you’ve truly outdone yourselves. What will you come up with next? Not to give you master brewers at Sprecher advice or anything…but if you’re going to brew a fruit beer you may want to try using actual fruit! Keep brewing the beers that keeps us laughing in Chigagoland...Sprecher RULZ!!!

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pretty brew. Cloudy peach pour with a light pink head. Smells like a strawberry scented candle. Not as overly sweet as I thought it would be. In fact, it could be a tad sweeter. What really, Really, REALLY, REALLY kills this is the after taste of artificial flavor. This is obviously not all natural. There is a chemical in this that was rejected by Frankenberry! You’re better than this, Sprecher. Try again!!!!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Unfiltered peach color with a thin quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma of wheat, strawberry and yeast. Taste of strawberry, candy sugar and sweet malt. Sugary and syrupy with a diet cola like finish. A touch too sweet but overall drinkable.

Horrible. Taste like bad cold medicine. Big head, no wheat flavor and seems like corn syrup was added???

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
16 oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy and very masculine orange-pink color. Head was two fingers high and white with decent retention. There wasn’t any lace. Aroma was of buttery pancakes, yeasty bread dough, and liquid strawberry flavored penicillin. It was cloyingly sweet on the tongue with a malt extracty note (not sure if this is even an extract beer). Imagine strawberry frosting mixed into strawberry soda with a splash of vanilla syrup. Pour that mixture onto a bowl of Franken Berry cereal and that’s what this beer tasted like. I wouldn’t recommend running out to grab one of these from you nearest retailer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong aroma of strawberry. Very aromatic, smells very sweet. Hazy Peach colored with a vey thin small fizzy head that was pinkish white. Head remained very consistant in size till the end. Left a light lacing on the pint glass. Taste is a very sweet Strawberry bubblegum flavor. Was like drinking strawberry bubblegum. Medium body, oily texture with average carbonation. The finish is liike when you finish strawberry bubblegum, when the flavor is gone and you get that gum aftertaste. This beer would be great on a hot summer day! It goes down smooth, and if you like your beer sweet you would really like this. Its something different and while I wouldn’t drink it regularly or add it to my favorite rotation I would not hesitate to drink one again, especially when it is hot outside. A nice beer, a nice change of pace.
Served at 36 degrees in a pint glass. For those who like traditional beer I would pass on this one. But, if you like to try new and different beer you might very well like this one.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Courtesy SoLan. Pours a cloudy orange/red, with a small white head. Smells of bubblegum, maybe some mild banana, and very faint wheat characters. Sweet smelling, like candy. Tastes like huge bubblegum. Sugary, not really close to a strawberry flavor either. I cant drink too much of this as it would upset my stomach. It might be interesting for 1 or 2 sips as a dessert beer, but other than that poorly crafted.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Courtesy MrFacto. Pours a hazy pinkish salmon with just a bit of white carbonation. Strawberry candy, sunblock, subtle wheat, other light or tropical fruits, sweet incense, candle wax- aroma. Same flavor- more beer like. Too sweet. Medium body, balanced carbonation, sticky sweet. Juice box drink in a beer bottle.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
16 oz bottle from discount liqours in milwaukee. Hazy light red-amber with tiny pink head. Very frutiy aroma with very sweet aroma. Flavor is like when you let a strawberry icee sit in a hot car too long and then you go to take a sip and all you get is dilluted syrup... yeah that’s pretty much what it tastes like, also... some wheat. Body is creamy but syrupy and light to med bodied. i was looking forward to this beer and was utterly dissapointed.
