2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from old notes.
At the brewery.
The appearance was a reddish brown color with about a one finger white foamy head that died off within a good minute. Light speckled lacing spider webbed a bit and then fell into the beer.
The aroma had some strawberries with a light breadiness about it.
The taste was the strawberry and the sweet breadiness again.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a light sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and to me. There’s a light strawberry / bready aftertaste with a slight watery finish.
Overall, an okay strawberry ale. Would I have it again? Uhmmm...well maybe.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at the brewpub. Raging harsh phenolic nose, backed with some confused pink fruit. Oof, this is rough. Incredibly hot, very sweet, and jam packed with yeast-stressed sharp, white pepper and foot phenols. All over the place. A half pint of this gave me a wicked headache. Messy and just too much going on.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a reddish brown with fluffy head. the aroma is of fresh strawberries and yeast. Taste is medium bodied belgian ale. its not overly strawberry but you get just enough. also yeast, cloves, slight barnyard. the 10.5% alcohol comes through a touch at the end. a pint of this to finish my night really put me over the edge into drunk town
