2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250mL bottle from the LCBO in Toronto. Pours a nice, cloudy dark brown. Smells like children’s cough syrup - ugh. The taste is, not surprisingly, of strawberries. Better than children’s cough syrup anyway. This is like strawberry juice. (Well, I suppose it IS strawberry juice.) Which isn’t so bad, I suppose - unless you were hoping for something resembling a beer.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled as ’Frubee Strawberry’:
Deep orange/ruby coloured body with severe hazyness and a nice pinkish head with some cream colour to it. Aroma of yeast, caster sugar, malt and you guessed it: pure strawberries...very nice. Medium to Full-bodied; Wierd tartness and strong flavours up front with a bunch of alcohol and malt noticeable then fading to an all out fruit attack. Aftertaste shows some of the lingering bitterness, but mostly fruity and almost no alcohol is noticeable. Overall, this beer is alright - not enough going on for me to truly enjoy...but its good to sample. I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased at K&E Discount Liquors in New Paltz, New York on 15-December-2005.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bubbly, reddish brown colour. Smells almost entirely of strawberries, with a hint of sourness. Very sweet, quite smooth. Kind of reminds me of a strawberry soda mixed with some alcohol. Doesn’t really taste like a beer, but I quite like it.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not bad at all - don’t believe everything you read on ratebeer. Tiny pink head, red-grapefruit-pink shades in the body. Quite fresh strawberry aroma. Taste mushed strawberries but remember to leave out the yeast. Without it, it’s dry and fresh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Red, hazy (from yeast only at bottom of bottle), thin wispy head. Very sweet strawberry aroma - like real fruit. Taste very similar. Without yeast it’s crisper and sourer, with yeast it’s slushier and a bit rubbery (not dark burnt rubber though). No finish. Summery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet fruity malty candy aroma. Color is hazy orange-amber. A bit flat, Tart strawberry orange flavor without much hops to speak of. Hints of cotton candy. Not the best belgian strawbeer but doesn’t deserve this low of a rating.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, murky pinkyish hue, with a white-pinky head, but falls quickly, good strawberry, raspberry jam nose, with a faint wheaty malt note, some fruity strawberry jello accents, with a subtle coriander spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet acidic strawberry, kind of artificial fruity character, with a raspberry candyish flavor, leading towards a straberryish, acidic finish. A nice fruity bière blanche.
