2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Jam-like sweet strawberry aroma with toasty underlying malts. Is it time for breakfast already? Opaque orange-tan coloured body is topped by generous, fine bubbled white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Extremely sweet and fruity jammy flavour with some grassy notes and a fairly tart finish. Light body with lively, pointy carbonation. Seems like a well-made beer but unfortunately the strawberry juice just about overshadows all else in the flavour. Tumbler. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle (BB0107, LCBO, Oct-05).

Aroma is all strawberry, but, not a light strawberry like I expected, it is syrupy. Average size pink head. Colour is ruby red and a light to medium body. Flavour is slightly sour, but, I was hoping the wheat would show through more.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled at Wetherspoons world of beer promo. Cloudy pink with pink head. What on earth is happening here? Fruity sweet concoction that if I didn’t have the bottle in my hands I would not have said was beer. Its a sweet sticky cheap fruit juice that is placed in probably a cheap Belgian Witt. Disgusting, but gets the od mark for novelty and aroma.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
[bottle from LCBO]
Pours a cloudy, strawberry-pink with a filmy white cover that clings to the side. I also managed to get a piece of the red foil on the head. Smells like sweet strawberry but a little artificial-like, with a touch of malt. Flavour is very sweet, strawberry juice with some unpleasant, lingering vegetal character. Really not dry or sour enough--way too sweet. Lowish carbonation and sticky sweet--I can get almost the same thing, minus alcohol, from the corner store.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange colour. Light creamy pink head goes away pretty quickly. Strawberry aroma is pretty evident. One could call this one the better half of sparkling wine. Refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky reddish-orange. Head disappeared quickly. Strawberry jam aroma. Sweet, with a slightly tart finish. More of a sipping beer. Better than the few other fruit flavored beers I’ve tried, but it’s not something I would drink regularily.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy dark grapefruit juice with a thin white head. Aroma of strawberry Certs or slushy.In mouth, too sweet with unfruity lactic points, astringent in character. Cloying and unpleasant. From the Beer Store...why???

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours very cloudy red with a pink head (Now there’s a first!!!!). Strawberries and raspberry aroma with notes of citrus fruits. Flavour is very sweet strawberry with a tart finish. Mouthfeel is very sticky & thick. My wife enjoyed this one quite a bit more than I did - She finished it for me...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Pink milkshake colour with lots of foam. Very strawberry aroma, enough real strawberry with the actual fruit bits, that the beer is disguised. Satisfying, well carbonated. Good fruity dessert aftertaste.I am not running after fruit beers, but this was the most natural of the many presented this summer in Ontario.
Truly strawberry, still not 100% natural.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Maison in NYC. Poured a ivory small head that mostly diminished, fine-large sized bubbles, poor lacing, no visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Sweet strawberry aroma and a sweet, sour, strawberry flavor. Refreshing and smooth. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Light body.
