A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of puréed strawberries are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of strawberry juice. Although it is tough to pick up any bit of the underlying ale, the beer masks any apparent sweetness from the fruit.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice aromas and flavors of strawberries. It's a good alternative if you want something a bit heavier than a fruity lambic.

I bought this with hesitation as I am normally not a fruit beer person but it is actually a really nice beer. Not artificial tasting and it has some body actually so it's still like a beer and not a strawberry soda. For the style very nice.

Not what I'd grab for 'a beer', but this is a truly delicious and well done fruit beer.
