COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The small and historical All Saints Brewery is located in Stamford, Lincolnshire - a region famous for excellent fruit. The Samuel Smiths Organic Fruit Beers are brewed and fermented there, then transferred to Samuel Smiths Brewery, in Tadcaster, for conditioning, aging, and packaging. The complex multiple yeast strains used to ferment these beers lead to a beautiful marriage with pure, rich Certified Organic fruit. Tasting notes: Strawberries offer a soft and subtle flavour, making the character of this fruit beer extremely sophisticated and refined. The smooth malt and aromatic strawberry flavours merge together in an elegant fashion, with the fresh flavours of ripe strawberries shining through.

This is what I get for buying a Strawberry beer. Aroma is overpowered with strawberries, like I had just poured a soda instead of beer. Decent head with moderate lacing. Taste isnt as sweet as the smell, but still all strawberry. Finished a little bitter. Couldnt down this fast enough.

550 ml. bottle- Pours cloudy orange with a thin bone white head, aroma is wow, strawberries, I also detect bananas, very pleasing. The flavor is again strawberry and banana, some might say that these fruit beers are kind of one noted, but I like them, this strawberry one I think could have been a bit more complex, I think some clove or even a bit more hops would have helped, I liked the raspberry one alot better. The body is medium, carbonation is high, it tastes almost like a lambic. Interesting, I will have to try the cherry one next.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a medium head. Aroma is tart strawberry and some barnyard underneath. Taste is a sweet strawberry start and tart strawberry seeds to finish. A bit thin.

I tried this after trying the raspberry beer, which I really enjoyed. This one? Not so much. The smell is a bit too overpowering with the strawberry aroma. Its also overly sweet.

Really just not a strong fruit beer offering. It tastes like strawberry crush soda.

Holy cow. Anyway. Popped at home and poured into a tall goblet (closest I had to a flute). AROMA: Strawberries. HUGE aroma of strawberries, ripe, sweet, and delicious. Slightest hint of malt. APPEARANCE: Absolutely gorgeous cloudy deep peach pour with a thin pale peach head that leaves a surprising amount of lacing. TASTE: Knocked me over. Sweet, but not ridiculously so - certainly not soda sweet. Has a lot of the natural berry tartness remaining, along with a gentle malt back-end that carries you to the finish. PALATE: A bit heavy - the only downside to this beer. Its not light enough to be an opener, but its perfect as a dessert beer or a breakfast beer. OVERALL: Wow. If Idve had this the first time I tried beer, Id be an alcoholic. I could drink WAAAAY too much of this stuff.

What a wonderful strawberry aroma. Nice balanced taste with hints of malt to counterbalance the sweetness of the strawberries. pours a nice peach color and finishes smooth.

DialSquare (4618) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle from Liquor Loft. Hazy orange pour with a smallish white head. Aroma of alcohol and strawberries. Taste is juicy sweet berries and creamy vanilla. Figure it accomplished what it was trying for - strawberry brew for sure.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Appearance: slight haze with strawberry hues that carry through into a fluffy head. Rose hips and tulips, soft and daring to be touched.
Nose: strawberry ice, strawberries and cream. Leafs from strawberry tops and a bitter tannic nip of the seeds linger in the back. White cake. Orange cream. Freeze dried strawberries.
Palate: soft and fluffy with strawberries atop white cake. Floats almost like a strawberry cloud in my mouth while bitter skins and orange peel linger in the front. Faint powdered sugar essence. Strawberry stems and leaves in the back of each swallow.
Final Thoughts: not overly complex but quite tasty. The lightness of body allowed her flavors to float and delight instead of cloy and disappoint. A solid fruit ale if I do say so myself.
