Densely cloudy, dirty pink. Fizzy effervescent head, gone before you know it. Smells like a strawberry cooler, tastes like a strawberry cooler-- sickly sweet. Not one I would come back to.

250 mL bottle. Translucent brownish red with a film of head. Smells like sweet strawberry juice. Tastes like sweet, heavily carbonated strawberry syrup that someone has spilled a little beer into as a joke. I’m not big on fruit beers in the first place, but this one is way too strong and sweet. I can see how some may find it a decent summer drink, though.

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.

Got this randomly one day at Rozi’s- not expecting much, and surprise! it’s in the 17th percentile. Aroma is that of strawberry jam and a little bit acidic. Flavor is really sweet, just like juice. There is almost no malt, hops or anything other than fruit noticeable. Yeah, I guess there is some malt in there? maybe? Just too fruity.

Very artificial weak beer. Like bad strawberry jelly. Very fake like. Clear sort of red color. Soda like. Thin head. Not much taste.

On tap at Capones (Norristown). I only tried this because my buddy was paying for it. I’m not a fan of sweet beers so this review is going to be biased. Pours red orange with a small head and long thing lacing. Has a strong strawberry aroma with some faint hops and citrus. The taste is VERY sweet - too sweet for my taste. I expected it to be more tart but its very sweet and the taste lingers. There is very little tartness to balance the massive overload of sweet. Initially, I thought it was very close to the taste of strawberry sundae topping but as a dessert drink it may work. What I dont like is that it lingers on the palate for a long time because of the syrup like mouth feel. Its not horrible or disgusting by any stretch; however, it is more suited to people who like wine coolers than complex ales.

Was at least expecting this to be ok after reading the reviews. Shocking alco-pop. Super sweet, fake strawberry taste to it like lolli pops in a blender.

Pours a slight pink, fizzy gay color. Aroma is pretty much strawberry jam. Flavor is like watered down strawberry soda. Very fizzy. Pretty girly. No actual beer/malt/hops taste. Keep this away from my fridge, except for when the teenage girls come over.

Draft during my V-Day lunch at BlueDog. Thank God this was just a 4oz pour in a sampler. This was nasty on every level. Poured an ugly brown/rose body with a full creamy light vomit pink head. Aroma is medicinal with a fruity cherry strawberry combo served in a dirty used band aid. The body is lifeless of any carbonation and has a slick and slimey mouthfeel. Flavor of bad fruit and medicine along with very old rotting strawberries. This was a textbook example of a drainpour. For the life of me I can no figure out why this is on steady rotation at several god bars in Philly area.
