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.

Aroma of organic strawberries that were a bit spoiled, earthy, sweet .Pour big head, cloudy truskawkowy kompot (strawberry juice) .Highly carbonated, bitter strawberry flavour does not go well with alcohol. It does feel wrong. Tart, fruity beer, but not refreshing at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark rhubarb red color with bubbling white head. A soft fresh strawberry presence emanates from the glass - quite sweet smelling, but not really getting too candyish, although if your nose is in their long enough it can get a bit perfumy. The body is candyish and too sweet. A spritzyness encompasses the mouth and carries with it a mild tartness that somewhat masks the initial sweetness thankfully. A bit more of a wheat presence in the body would do this beer well. Overall a bit sweet, but fresh tasting and straightforward.

(250ml bottle) Pours a thin, pink head and a reddish-orange body. Nose of strawberry and apples. Sweet strawberry syrup mingles with the likes of fizzy soda water. Can this even be considered beer?

Not bad. Great strawberry aroma, poured a syrupy brown. Taste is not a great balance between artificial flavour and malt. No bitterness to speak of. Refreshing taste on my deck in the sun, but not great.

Berry and assorted fruit aromas and sugar. Hazy rose, tiny pink head. Sweet, sugary, berry candy flavour. Throat tighteningly cloying. Unenjoyable.

This really is an alarmingly red beer, if you can call it that. It does taste extremely strawberry-y, but is too sweet and the sugary thickness of it leaves your mouth and teeth coated in the stuff. OK.

On tap, The Hot House, Chelmsford. Strawberry aroma. Strawberry ice lolly flavour. Sweet, with no redeeming quality. I love sweet beers, but this is so awesomely one dimensional it becomes truly disgusting. Undrinkable. Disgusting.
