3.71/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy reddish-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of strawberry jam, strawberry jelly, and buttered toast. Taste is much the same with slightly sour strawberry and strawberry juice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting buttered toast with strawberry jam smell and some solid strawberry flavors.

3.81/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours golden with slight white head in wine glass.

Smell is tart strawberries and not much else for me.

Taste is sour with lots of strawberry but not overpoweringly so. Light bitterness in the finish. Very tangy and sweet.

Mouthfeel is prickly with lots of carbonation.

Overall this was good. Shared a bottle with my wife and would have trouble finishing a whole bottle myself.

3.66/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Hazy red with light cream head. Good semi-sticky foam retention.

S: Sweet strawberry. Almost like syrup. Mild vanilla.

T: Sweet up front and finishing very sweet. Reminds me of a strawberry Italian soda. Mild tart sourness finishes longer. Hard to pick out much more than sweet. The mild tartness is its saving grace.

M: Light and crisp and epravescant. Would be great served freezing on a hot summer day.

O: I liked it but it lacked a depth of flavor; the strawberry took over. Well done for a fruit beer, but I prefer a little more sour or a little less sweet.
