I used to feel I would never dislike a Sprecher product. I was very wrong. My wife and I thought this would be a nice refreshing beer. It was awful.
I could not identify the Strawberry flavor. It was more like a medicine taste.

From the bottle this pours a pinkish amber with a modest white head. The aroma smells like a cheap strawberry perfume, if there is such a thing. (I hope not.) It tastes like strawberry cotton candy and has a light, tart twist at the end. A rather sub-par offering from an otherwise fine brewer.

Thank to skyview for sharing another hard to find Sprecher. Color of liquefied bazooka joe bubblegum. Smells of overripe strawberries. Sweet almost bubblegum flavor. Odd clash between wheat and strawberry flavors.

Thanks Skyview, kinda... Pink color. Good lord, it smells like bubblegum. Kind of tastes like it too, with a dry wheat and almost sickly sweet strawberry finish. It’s not nearly as rancid as I expected, but nothing I’d go for again.

Surprised this beer is rated so low, as it is freakin incredible. I could see how some may find it a little sweet, but I think the strawberry meshes perfectly with the wheat to form a wonderful brew. Sorry I only picked up one.

It is a pink beer, like a grapefruit cocktail, or HOTD Rose Cassis. Light, artificial fruit flavor with strawberry and sweet bubblegum. I would serve this over ice, and it isn’t so bad.

Looks like pink grapefruit. Smells like sugar candy with a hint of some more candy. Very odd and sweet with a hint of shortcake rolls. BTW the appearance gets a two because of the pink head.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazed pinkish grapefruit in color with a jagged, grey ice froth on top. Aroma revels in strawberry shortcake and plastic squeeze toys. A hint of cherry amaretto banana cheesecake keeps things surprisingly and desirably aromatically interesting. Sweet strawberry cloves and fluffy amaretto cream cheese danishes foray in the flavor. Cotton candy flavored dum-dum suckers with an effervescent feel and flavor in kind to cherry 7-up. No carbonation sting but rather a sweet, waxy glide across the palate post sip. Medium bodied and balanced more than I’d bargained for, finishing with cherry cheesecake pieces in a custard filled waffle cone.

16oz bottle. Hmmm, how to describe the color of this one. Poured a medium and cloudy pinkish / reddish color with an averaged sized pinkish head. Aromas of strawberries, sugar, with bananas and wheat in the background. Tastes of sugar, strawberries, and all around berries. Sweet. I think this is a mistake and is actually one of their specialty sodas...

Picked up a four-pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy dirty apricot orange with a light pink head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and ring and spotty lacing. Aroma of sweetened yeast, a hint of red berries and some stale General Mills’ Franken Berry breakfast cereal. Taste is chalky yeast with artificial strawberry flavor added. Medium bodied and some infused carbonation. Finish is spritzy strawberry tart with a yeasty berry wheat aftertaste. Can hardly wait until this one gets a retired label.
