2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
250 ml bottle. Cloudy reddish brown colour. Medium-sized reddish white head. Fresh sweet strawberry aroma with a lemony background. Initial sweet flavour from strawberries, then a more acidic refreshing fruity character. A bit sugary sensation overall. Feels a little like strawberry juice in a glass. A little too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Reddish hazy color with a vigorous pink head that laced. It smells like strawberries. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Strawberry fruit flavor over, perhaps, wheat. It’s a bit sweet, but that washes away. A slight bitterness in the finish. Very interesting.

De mémoire. Bière calme, de couleur fraise un peu ternie, mate et opaque. Pas de mousse, peu de bulle. Parfum de bière léger, dominé par une odeur de fraises surgelées ou en sirop. Le goût reprend le malte et le houblon discret en premier lieu, avec ensuite un goût de jus de fruit et puis une fermeture de fraises artificielles, on dirait qu’on croque un baume à lèvres au fraises. Pas extraordinaire. Le palais est plus proche du jus que de la bière… À oublier.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
250ml bottle. Pours a murky pinkish red with a white head. The aroma is pure sickly strawberry. Smooth at first and then fizzy/tingly on the tongue. Starts with an intense strawberry flavour and then a wheat note comes through. The flavours feel rather artificial and overall this is pretty poor. Oh well, I can tick off ’fruit beer’ on the style list now.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
250 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. ABV is 4.1%. Cloudy brownish red colour, large pinkish head. Intense sweet aroma and flavour of strawberry jam and artificial "strawberry" candy bars, kind of sickly and sugary. Not undrinkable though. If blindfolded, I would probably not have guessed that this was a beer at all. Not my cup of tea (uh, beer) this one, but people who love candy and strawberry soda might like it.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Quite a bright reddish brown beer with a light head. The aroma is very fruity and the flavour is full fruit and quite thick. Overall a very nice strawberry beer - more complex than the norm.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
250ml bottle at Cafe Rouge, Oxford. Served with ice!.Disgusting appearance (for a beer) with its rosy foam resting on a hazy, reddish body. For me this is a drink with water and berries and not a beer. And I made a great mistake to order this White Fruit Beer with food. Never again! (16.03.2008).

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 250 ml bottle (Vaaland, Bryne). Cloudy reddishorange color, purple head. Aroma is starwberry!. flavor is strawberry and some sourness. Not bad at all, but I could not drink the the whole bottle, and I guess that means that this is not my kind of beer.

Slightly cloudy and totally dominated by strawberries. Not really my taste but something different for the summer.

Your basic fruit beer. the strawberries made it intriguing to me. Great Strawberry flavor, and a hint of spice. The hint of spice makes it better than your average massively fruited beer but not much. Definitely more fruit than beer.
