1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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...

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. Poured a sickly pale peach with a fast-dying white head. Weird-ass strawberry extract with lactic notes and an odd sweetness in the aroma.. not the least bit enjoyable. The flavor brought back shaky childhood memoried of Strawberry Kwik.. milky-sweet and highly artificial.. waaaaay too long finish of strawberry milkshakes. Some mild wheaty tartness pairs with hefty milky nastiness on the palate.. somewhat creamy middle. Glad I had 3 other guys to help me drink this.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a glowing pinkish bronze with a small, clingy-lacing white head. Mild aroma of sugary strawberries, with a touch of banana and German yeast. Body starts with a fruity sugary flavor with a strange, almost oily palate, with light carbonation along with a more bitter, earthy finish. It actually smells pretty decent, but something is definitely off in the flavor. Probably fermented with too much dextrose and not enough maltose.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottles and "enjoyed" in my NB flute: Pours a cloudy crimson hue with a fading fizzy pinkish head and no lace. The aroma has a major strawberry jam vapours along with some grains, artificial sweeteners and grassy notes too. Well I am thinking this is not as bad as I was warned by the Milwaukee crew so I lifted my glass to my lips and took a sip..."OMFG this is awful!" A crappy syrupy strawberry flavor wrapped in cardboard box. I so love pain, took another sip, yep it is a complete drainpour!! Thankfully I bought this in a mixer sixer and did not waste a lot of money on an otherwise waste of time and tastebuds, AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ruby red grapefruit juice color. Taller pink head. Really does not look that appealing to me. Sweet wheat aromas, along with a light fruit backdrop. I don’t find the aroma as offensive as most, perhaps a bit sweet, but does have a weiss quality. The best way I think I can describe the flavor is to imagine a decent american weiss and add some strawberry koolaid to it. I catch flavors of wheat and some yeast qualities, but then the fake strawberry flavors creep in and kind of mess things up. Another sad attempt to win a segment of the beer drinks by making a fruity beverage.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
