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

Samuel Smith's Organic Strawberry Fruit Beer has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly opaque, rust-red-orange appearance, and extremely heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of overwhelming strawberry juice, with a bready background. Taste is more bread oriented, with a strawberry juice and acid background. Bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and somewhat slick, and this beer finishes wet and sweet.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed red tinted color with two fingers of just off white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a strawberry jam smell with a little bit of a bread smell as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a super sweet strawberry jam flavor, which really dominates the taste throughout. A little bit of grain comes to the tongue toward the middle, but this is very light, with the majority of flavor being strawberry. In the end a little bit of sourness of a mostly lemon variety comes to the tongue, leaving a lightly sour strawberry jam flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. For the very sweet strawberry the thinness and carbonation are perfect really making for an easy sipping brew overall.

Overall – A desert beer certainly. Sweet but rather authentic in strawberry. A good go to if looking for something sweet and fruity.
