2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 I’m writing an article on fruit beers for a local food & drink website, so I gave this another shot to see if it’s as bad as I thought the first time around. It still looks as ugly as hell - murky reddish-brown with a wisp of a head. Aroma of strawberry jam - not just any jam, but the sickly sweet freezer jam that is common on the east coast of Canada where my family is from. Flavour is quite sweet and candyish with a hint of tartness in the finish. It’s not quite as cloying as my original rating suggested - it’s still too sweet for my personal taste, but I don’t hate it quite as much the second time around. (original numbers - 3/2/2/2/4/1.3)

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Very cloudy neon pink beer with a thin white head. Very strong strawberry and light spice aroma. Flavour is almost all strawberry with a hint of coriander. Very sweet finish. I wouldn’t say that this is bad, but the sweetness really puts you off after half a pint. I couldn’t finish it.

Hazy pale red in colour with a powerful nose of strawberry. Not much wheat beer quality to this one (no yeasty or wheaty flavors), just overpowering sweet strawberry cand flavorsy. Not completely offensive, but not really "beer like" enough for me.

Bottle. This has an off strawberry flavour and an almost saccrine sweetness.

Pink color, frothy head that dissipated quickly and left no lace. Sweet strawberries dominate, and leave an unpleasant taste in the finish.

Strawberries I love. Beer I love ever more. Make fine use of those loves this beer does not. Yes, it is pretty and yes, it smells like ripe and beguiling berries. When glass comes to mouth and beer to lips, I realized I have just imbibed a child’s soft drink that has been laced with alcohol. Nothing about this beverage feels like beer or even "Adult" for that matter. It is a highly carbonated, strawberry medicine/candy flavoured terror that makes me loathe to foray into further Fruit Beer territory. So in short, not awesome.

Pours a two finger faint pink head that fades quickly, leaving some lace. Cloudy pink/amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Strawberry nose. Flavor is sweet liquid strawberries.

Novelty beer, but drinkable and slightly refreshing. Also one of the few Belgian beers available in Indonesia, so extra points for being a drinkable option in a country of awful beers. Extremely fruity sweet flavor, with a little bit of malt balance, and wine cooler-like after taste.

I found this beer gross. It smelled good but oh man it was awful. It looked and tasted like someone blended up rotten fruit roll ups and Hoegarden and served to me!
