3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark, cloudy blood, very much like you’d expect an unfiltered ’white’ beer to look like with strawberry juice added. Tiny pink head. The smell is incredibly sweet, almost completely sugary strawberries (another reviewer likened it to strawberry jam, I like this comparison). There is some faint malt buried beneath the strawberry sugar aroma. Taste is lighter than expected -- while the nose is very sweet strawberry syrup, the beer finishes as a blonde ale or wheat. Sweet citrus lingers on the palate. Tasty, but not incredibly balanced -- especially in the aroma.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
bottle: Well, i think you either like fruit beers or you don’t. Make that, you either love strawberry beer or you hate it. Thin to no head, dark cloudy colour . . . and really sweet. My wife almost likes this & she hates beer - is this a good sign? My beef with this beer is that it doesn’t feel or taste like a beer, but more like a cooler. Do yourself a favour & grab an amazingly flavoured belgian white (Blue Moon, Hoegarden), german wheat (Erdinger), belgian ale (Leffe Blonde), an abbey dubbel (Chimary Red) or even a hgh quality ESB (Hobgoblin), where you can taste fruit but still feel like you are drinking a beer. Now those beers are an amazing combo of fruit flavours & matls. This just tastes like strawberry juice/smoothie mixed with cheap lager, brutal.

Is this really beer? Ok it tastes of strawberries, but it bears no resemblance to any beer I’ve tasted before. It’s sweet and so unbalanced, to me it’s quite unpleasant. I honestly hate to appear sexist, but I suspect this is aimed at the female market, and while there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s not my cup of tea, or "beer" for that matter, so sorry!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 A floral and strawberry/ yeasty nose. Strawberry notes. Light body. Some bitterness. A nicely balanced brew. Very much a palette cleanser.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy red with a pinkish head.
Extremely sweet in both aroma and flavour. Smells and tastes like strawberry-jam. The sweetness chokes every other flavour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pink colour with some light pink head. Definite smell of strawberrys and a similar taste, kind of like liquid strawberry jam. It’s alrite at first, but I found that after half a bottle it became too insipid. Not so much a fault with the beer, but I’ve never been a fan of strawberry juice, in a similar way to raspberrys, I find that they lose their tart edge when juiced and are just too sweet.
Maybe the cranberry version works better?
