Smelled exactly like one of those hard candies in the wrapper that looks like a strawberry. One dimensional although good if you like strawberry soda pop.

rougeau13 (2002) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Cloudy pink-amber with a white head. Aroma of fresh strawberries, earthiness, and grass. Tastes like a strawberry, slightly sweetened, mixed with a crisp, lightly malted beer. Body is medium. More of a desert than a beer, but tasty, and not overly sweet or phony tasting.

JohnnyJ (4357) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a muddy pinkish pour, fizzy white head. Smells like artificial strawberries. Sweet strawberry candy, sugar, light musty malt in the background. Not good.

Back to back with the raspberry. shared with bikesandbeer, bottle from K&B. Orangey pours with a pinkish tan head. The color is remiscent of oudbejite, a much better strawberry beer. Like the raspberry, the nose is like a strawberry jam. Taste is awful.

Strawberry Timmy has an appearance of strawberry-flavored lemonade. It looks nice. Now, let’s give it a big ole sniff. Smells like a cross between gum, you know, that ’Juicy’ gum and a Jolly Rancher. It smells sweet. Being peddled in elegant glassware makes one want to drink this sugary treat with a pinkie up. Overall? Eh, it’s okay, you know, for a big cup of heart palpitating sweetness.

12 ounce pour - $8.00 at Trappeze in Athens, Georgia. Appearance: Served up an obscured, strawberry sherbet-hued body with a slim, fine, but persistent white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, strawberry-scented aroma. Candy or Kool-Aid springs to mind sooner than beer. Taste: The sweet, saccharine taste of strawberry flavoring marked with a very, very small blip of acidity and little else. Any funk, any sourness is well hidden by the candyish qualities. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: I wouldn’t exactly describe Timmermans craft as "haunting", it’s just simple, sweet stuff, more akin to a malternative or even one of those Jones sodas.

Bottle from Ledgers. I never expect a lot from John Martin, but upon opening strawberry wafted a foot to my nose. Pours medium tea color with a fomay off-white head. Aroma is strawberry with a hint of bubble gum. Med minus body; piquant carb. It’s not really sweet, and it’s lightly tart. Such little funk as there is can be imagined when all the liquid goes away. Gotta say it is way better than expected, and though it’s not very funky, I think it qualifies as lambic. Much better than some of those syrupy ones. The strawberry flavor pervades, but it is arguably subtle. Arguably.

330cl bottle at the BevMo fest. Pours hazy reddish in color with a small pinkish white head. Smells like strawberry, more or less. A little sweet rather than sour or funky. The flavor is also sweet with just a slight tartness. I hear this wasn’t sweetened - really? Sure seems like it. Strawberry dominates. Medium-bodied with high carbonation and only slight, slight acidity. Fine for what it is, but come on.
