2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is moderately strong strawberry over a dry champagne-like yeastiness. Appearance is hazy pale yellow with champagne-like sparkle, finger width quickly fading white foamy head and no lacing. Taste is light sweet strawberry over dry champagne tart and spice. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture and dominated by stinging fizzy carbonation, with dry, lightly sweet finish. Overall, aroma is stronger than taste--I was expecting to get blown away by too much strawberry but was instead left wanting more.

On tap. I had low expectations. Pours a very pale straw color with a thin white head. Big strawberry aroma. I didn’t think this would be a good combination but it works, very light and delicate with a bit of spice.

Not a bad Belgian white, but it does have a strange aftertaste. The strawberry taste comes at you at first, but leaves a bit too quickly.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12oz. can into a Shock Top Witbier glass.
The color is a cloudy yellow gold with a finger and a half of foamy white head and a thin layer of lacing left on the glass.
The smell is big strawberry that is dominating the first couple of whiffs of this beer. There is a wheaty aroma that does hide behind the fruit smell and comes out slightly here and there.
The taste is strawberry right up front and is present throughout the flavor of this beer. There is a wheat flavor that comes out along with a strawberry flavor still present. There is a slight hint of spicy hop toward the end accompanied but more strawberry flavor that is gone as soon as each sip is gone with no aftertaste.
The feel of this beer is a light bodied, is really easy drinking and makes for a great beer for warmer weather. There is little aftertaste so there is no lingering and it has a refreshing feel that cleanses the palate.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention crackles and recedes to coat surface. Strawberry jam and mildly sour apple aromas. Dry with sweet strawberry and caramel upfront turning to citrusy yeast before returning to strawberry in the medium length finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Bert’s
Pours a hazy light straw color with a decent sized fluffy white head that persists for a while. Aromas of strawberry in spades. Sweet and a some tart strawberry aromas mixed with bits of lemon, yeast and earth. The flavor follows the aroma quite well, but the berry flavor it a bit more subdued. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation. Tastes a bit like a strawberry soda mixed with a yeasty wheat beer. I could drink a few of these if pressed.

Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is super sweet with ripe strawberries. Taste that followed was not as strong as expected from the aroma. Not bad, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. can, It definitely looks like a Belgian White with its unfiltered, cloudy pale yellow pour and tremendous foamy white head. Yes, you get the usual roasted malts, butter, light spice and yeast that accompanies a White but those strawberries really pound their chests to let everyone know they are there. The body is medium to heavy...really heavy. Strawberries are more muted in the flavor but they are there. Otherwise it is packed full of Belgian yeast, Belgian malts, lemonzest, and butter.
