Bottle. From notes. Reddish colored. Aroma is strawberry as well as taste. Nothing else really comes out. Barely a beer. Rating #66

Pours a funky orange/pink with no head. Aroma is really sweet, strawberry candy, and a little citrus. As bas as it smells, it does taste ok. Very sweet strawberry with some coriander and citrus and some wheat. Palate reminds me of a cooler, little harsh bubbles and cloyingly sweet.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a pinkish red color with a small foamy light pink head. Aroma is strawberry candy, smells like GNC strawberry protein hahaha. Initial taste is like a rocking boat, side to side strawberry candy then weird funky sweetness. Mid palate to finish fades very quickly with light berries on the finish and very dry. Flavor is one dimensional and clawing sweet. Below average palate duration. Average head retention. Body is light.

Hazy ruddy, light umber color with a diminished pink head. Candy and strawberry jam scents. A few other over-ripe berries in the nose as well, but certainly a fruit beer. Sweet perfumy strawberry and sugary candi. Light acidity in the linger, but the rest is just a goopy strawberry mess.

250ml bottle from the LCBO. Im not exactly sure why I decided to buy this estrogen filled beer. Pours a pretty pink with strong strawberry flavors. Very little alcohol. No reason to buy this unless your trying to get your girlfriend drunk.

Bouteille de 250 ml. La bière est de couleur rosée-orangée et possède un col de mousse modeste. Au nez on découvre des arômes de jujubes aux fraises, de sirop sucré et d’orange. En bouche le corps est moyen avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de sirop aux fraises, de sucre, de levure et d’orange avec une légère âcretée. Pas mon style.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Pinkish, grapefruit colored ale with a bubbly, quickly diminishing white foam. Awful aroma reminds me of a protein smoothie, with notes of strawberry and tangerine. Way too sweet, one dimensional. No real reason for this beer to exist. Hardly any alcohol. Expensive. A better alternative is a cocktail of some kind, or a vitamin water. Huyghe sucks.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2009
There’s no "Van Diest" on the bottle that I picked up at the Binny’s in Orland Park, IL. It only mentions Huyghe. Not a bad drink, but it’s all about fruit and little else. It pours a hazy off-red body with a smallish head tinted with pink. The aroma is strawberries, maybe a little candied. The flavor is fresh strawberries, but the carbonation seems to cut the sweetness a tad. Okay, but I probably won’t be repeating this.

3.2
Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Bouteille de 250 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler. Biere d couleur rouge-rosé avec un mince collet moyennement collant. Odeur de fraise très fort, framboises, confiture, sucre et un peu floral. Gout très très doux en bouche, fraise et sucre.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 250mL bottle purchased from the LCBO, I’m not really sure why. Anyways, pours a decent looking hazy red with a small pink head. The aroma is over whelmingly sweet, like seriousy, seriously, dangerously sweet and fruity. Strawberries to the MAX. Some sour tartness seems to be screaming for attention, but I just really don’t seem to care. It actually smells suspiciously like strawberry jam. Flavour is actually okay. Not as cloyingly sweet as I was afraid it would be. For some reason the first sensory reaction to the stuff being in my mouth is in my nose which sort of tickles (wtf?). Flavour is fruity strawberryness all the way through, but with some wheaty sour tartness in the finish that seems like it just really wants more than anything to add some balance, but just can’t quite do it. Like the little engine that could, but it can’t. Mouth-feel is indistinguishable from pop. As far as a drinkable substance goes it’s actually pretty good, I would just never guess this is actually supposed to be a legite beer. Pairs well with some KD mac n’ cheese, and I think its most redeeming qualtiy is the way it doesn’t make you want to vomit, which in my books is a solid asset. You could actually feed this to your children, in fact, I recommend it.
