3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed from a 11.2 oz bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a faint ruby/light copper color, with a low white head. The nose shows jammy notes of strawberry, reminiscent of strawberry jelly. Very sweet and seemingly artificial, but not entirely unpleasant. The palate again shows a jammy sweetness up front, strawberries in the mid-palate, and additional sugary sweetness in the finish. Traditional beer flavors, not to mention notes of the base Witbier, do not come through in any detectable manner. Carbonation is nicely calibrated, and serves to lift the flavors from the palate, to some extent. The finish leaves a lingering note of strawberry jam. Overall, a nice dessert beer, but one that would be tiresome to drink in any quantity.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - the dominating scent is strawberry puree or strawberry cheesecake or Brach’s Strawberry Hard Candy
Appearance - body color is an orange-pink color; the liquid is clear, but with sediment floating about; the head is white and starts about 1/4" and rings out with a little film on top.
Taste - is sweet and no doubt full of strawberry but one could also be convinced on a blind test that it’s raspberry. Absolutely delicious, not at all what I think of when I think of beer, but still absolutely delicious
Palate - body is light; the texture thin; the carbonation is lively; the finish sweet and medium in length
That is really nice! It tastes and smells almost like a Brach’s Strawberry Hard Candy or a Strawberry cheesecake. It’s tasty, not at all what I think of when I think of beer, but absolutely delicious.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pink color, frothy head that dissipated quickly and left no lace. Sweet strawberries dominate, and leave an unpleasant taste in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy pink soft drink style pour, no head - looks pretty awful in the glass. Aroma is huge, sweet, strawberry lollies, real strawberries, strawberry ice cream topping - a mix of real and artificial strawberry smells that is pretty punchy. It’s sweet, but not as cloyingly sweet as I was expecting given the smell. Taste is mostly strawberry syrup, it’s definitely not bad but reminds me a bit of pre-mix vodka and rum drinks.

Strawberry. Not bad for a fruit forward beer. Pours cloudy dark pink. Lots of strawberry flavour. Nice carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking, if you like fruit in your beer. Not yeasty or malty like I thought it would be.

From 330ml bottle, mild sweet strawberry aroma and flavour, sweet (almost like a cider) and quite smooth. Don’t think it’s sessionable, but it’s interesting and well worth a try.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle): Pours a pink/red with a pink-ish head. Aroma of strawberry tart and a weird bready/yeasty note that doesn’t fit. Flavour is very strawberry, like some kind of concentrated strawberry syrup. Not much else picked up. Not my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB April 2015. Hazy red with a small pinky white head. Smell - strong strawberry - hard boiled strawberry sweets, strawberry syrup, honey. Body is medium, not foamy, very low carbonation, tacky in the mouth. Taste - perfumey strawberry concentrate, very sweet, sugar syrup. My sister liked it and said it’s a bit like snakebite, which I can see. It’s drinkable, inoffensive tooth rot which is fine at Christmas! I had to brush my teeth twice after drinking this stuff.

Very sweet. A good dessert beer but wouldn’t want to drink more than one. It was tasty though.

Botlle tesco. Pours with a good pinky white head soon dissapates with lacing colour is redish pink. Aroma is stong strawberry. Taste is overipe strawberries with lots of sugar. A nice fizzy smooth feel in the mouth easy to drink very much like pop.
