3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Porterhouse: Minimal head. Thick cloudy red color. Smells like a hell of lot of strawberries. Intense tart strawberry taste. Still a little bit of beer taste in there. Really thick for a fruit beer. I actually liked it. I think that even if this is a girly alco-pop, it is still a notable beer because of its thickness. It isn’t offensive to any sensibility and it is quite drinkable by any standard. Not as complex as a lambic I would suppose, but it still deserves better than this, as it is better than all those watery American fruit wheat beers.

330ml bottle. Sweet and overpowered with strawberry juice. Nothing more than an alcopop.

Københavnske Øldage 07. The color is like strawberry juice, perhaps a bit more red. The aroma has a lot of strawberries, and the flavour is like eating liquid, sun ripe and warm strawberries right from the plant - ymmIII.... 13/29

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on tap and found this to be a distinctly unusual effort. Very strong initial sweet gloopy taste, although underneath there lurks a half decent wheat beer. Trouble is it’s masked by an almost overpowering fruity-mulch - as if a shot of Soda Stream concentrate (for those who remember this) has been thrown in. Head was not very convincing and disappeared pretty quickly and although I came round a bit more to it halfway down, as the initial sweet shock wore off, there’s something distinctly synthetic about this beer.
This was the on tap version, however, and I imagine that the bottled beer is a different beast.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 [414-20070709] 250mL. Strawberry wine shortcake aroma. Murky, dark red body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fruit punch than beer, flavour is strongly strawberry (you can almost feel the seeds) and lightly plastic. Medium body. Refreshing summer brew. (8/3/8/3/14) 3.6
[2330B-20090724] Sample. Sweet super strawberry juice aroma. Hazy, light pink red body with a quick foamy light pink head. More strawberry juice in the flavour, very sweet. Medium body. Fruity and great for a summer patio, more like a cooler than a beer though. (6/3/7/3/10) 2.9

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy red brown with a off white color head. Aroma is fruit mostly strawberry, but it also had a sugary candy like smell. Sweet berry flavor with a dry sugar lasting taste bud tingle.

Bottle. Hazy red color with a average fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy strawberry (a bit like strawberryjam), sweat, wheat. Flavor is moderate sweet to heavy (strawberry and sugar sweet) with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pink with white head. Sweet strawberry aroma. Sirupy and in a way quite synthetic. Lack variation!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a raspberry-hued amber with tons of carbonation and a fast yet fluffy pink head. Strawberry vs. yeasts in the aroma come off like jam on bread. Fruity, sweeet & tart with cheek-pinching astringence. Fruitiness stays prominent but some yeasty and bitter notes push through to show you there’s actually beer under it all. A strawberry-lovers delight. For the rest of us, an interesting change of pace and a well-done fruit beer.

A Mes rate:
Another tap sample from Lowlander. Amazing that I have never rated this. Full on strawberry wheat beer. Over the top sweetness but there is just a little something I cant help like about it.
