Pours a clear, blonde color. 6/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong strawberries, sweet malt, hint of hop, hint of wheat, and a hint of pale malt. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with much too of a high carbonation level. The mouth feel has a metallic sharpness normally associated with adjunct, didn't expect that in this beer. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable Beer. Tastes of strawberries, slight sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of wheat, and a hint of hops. Overall, mostly strawberries and not much else. If the sharpness could be cut down this would be a much better beer.

Pale, transparent straw color. Weak head on the pour with virtually no retention.

Lots of tart strawberry in the aroma. No room for much else.

Strawberry tartness dominates the flavor throughout. Just a hint of mild bread grain detectable underneath. No hops or alcohol flavor detectable.

Light feel. Descent carbonation at the beginning but let it sit 10-15 minutes as you drink it and it loses nearly all its fizz. Finishes with a satisfying dryness which makes it a good session beer with you enjoy the taste.

Not impressed with this one. Not a lot of depth and too much strawberry flavor. I'll Pass!
