3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Body is hazy with a reddish hue. Nice pinky head thats frothy and large. Aroma is all wheat and strawberries. Taste is dominated by strawberries but accented with a wheaty flavour. Very sweet. A nice beer to sip on during a hot day but I don’t think I could take more than 1 due to the sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a red colored beer with almost no head or even carbonation. Taste is overpowered by strawberry and sugar. Taste is also taken over by the strawberry and the sugar, or maybe I should say the strawberry juice since I have hard time believing real strawberry were added to this mix. No malt or hops are noticeable in this mixture. Overall, I guess if you don’t expect to drink what is usually known as beer, you can enjoy this somewhat refreshing drink on a very hot summer day.

Sample taken from 250ml brown bottle. Red orange. Pinkish head. Strawberry aroma. Starts of sweet, spritzy mouthfeel. Ends tart. Reminds me of a wine cooler.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Murky red-orange. Pink head. Potent, artificial aroma of strawberry jam. Sugary, cloying feel. Very sweet strawberry flavour (not quite as artificial as on the nose) w/ a slight wheat sapor & a hint of tartness in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange red colour body with a moderate pink-white head that leaves some very nice brewers lace in the glass. Aroma is very sweetly strawberry which lead me to initially think that it was fairly artificial but I would be proven wrong as it lacks that funky chemical aftertaste. Flavour is dominated by sugary sweet strawberry flavours, with just a hint of pleasant tarter strawberry in the finish and the aftertaste. Palate is pleasantly highly effervescent and fairly smooth. I actually quite enjoyed this though it is admittedly far too sweet to have more than one or two. Best strawberry beer I have had so far :)

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Orange-red in colour with a pinkish coloured head. Aroma was extremely sweet, lots of sugar and strawberries. Flavour was all sugar coated strawberries, wheaty, very cloying. Each sip was harder to swallow then the previous. I don’t understand why this brewery produces so many nearly undrinkable beers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 I’m writing an article on fruit beers for a local food & drink website, so I gave this another shot to see if it’s as bad as I thought the first time around. It still looks as ugly as hell - murky reddish-brown with a wisp of a head. Aroma of strawberry jam - not just any jam, but the sickly sweet freezer jam that is common on the east coast of Canada where my family is from. Flavour is quite sweet and candyish with a hint of tartness in the finish. It’s not quite as cloying as my original rating suggested - it’s still too sweet for my personal taste, but I don’t hate it quite as much the second time around. (original numbers - 3/2/2/2/4/1.3)

This is a bit of an alcopop, but I found it somewhat enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is very strong, but genuine strawberry with a nice tartness at the end to counter the sweetness. That being said this is little more than a cooler with a beer base.
