COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strawberry Wheat Ale is the perfect compliment to a hot summer day. At its core is a lightly hopped wheat ale but with over 100lbs of local (Strawberry Hill) strawberries, it becomes the summer beer that many have been waiting for since the creation of its Peachy cousin.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A strawberry flavored beer that has a strong fruit aroma. A straw colored beer with a thin white head. A pretty solid brew.

Pint on tap. Nearly opaque orange-amber with a lasting film of bubbles. Mild nose of berry and crackers. Taste is neutral berry with a nice balance of toast and citrus. Finish has a hint of minty-citrus hops. Light body has medium carbonation and a nice balance.

bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pours a hazy golden into the glass, with a light wispy white head that reduces to trace lacing. The nose is of strawberries suspended in a simple syrup, almost candied. The flavors are simple, of wheat grain with muddy bitters to finish, all the while strawberry citrus notes surround each portion of the pull. Not cloying at all, the strawberry seems natural, especially nice in the essence after the close. While the strawberry is not "forced", the base wheat brew behind it seems very mediocre. Zesty carbonation provides for a light body and easy seltzer-like mouthfeel. Unfortunately, the battle between strawberries and wheat, instead of working in tandem, fight for top position, really working against one another, instead of providing a palate of synergy. I feel constantly caught between a true "fruit beer" and and a mediocre wheat brew with strawberries integrated as an afterthought. A shame, just not it’s peachy cousin.

12 ounce bottle opened 8/24/14. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of strawberry and citrus with wheat. The taste is wheat, biscuit malt, mild strawberry. Medium bodied.

OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft. poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. Faint aroma of wheat and strawberry. Not much going on here. Not much flavor. Pretty boring. It was a bit refreshing on a hot day.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Labeled "Strawberry Wheat" at Roasthouse Pub in Frederick, MD. Served in a pint glass, ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of strawberries and pale malt sweetness. Taste adds some bread and citrus notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, soft with sweet tart finish. Tasty easy fruit beer.

Smells strongly of strawberry. Pours very hazy. Taste is almost all wheat with no very little strawberry taste. Pretty meh.

12 oz bottle This was a gift at a birthday party. The beer poured a cloudy dark amber a small head and no lacing. There was a mild aroma of berries. The taste was more neutral than expected. I was expecting more strawberry, but this was managed well. The beer had a light body with soft carbonation. balance. In the heat of the afternoon it was refreshing.
