look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 550mL bottle into a pint glass. Bottle overflowed annoyingly upon opening.

Appearance: light orange hue with a light haze and a finger of pillowy white foam. Leaves a nice lace on the glass.

Smell: light, sweet strawberry aroma. Surprisingly fresh and pleasing.

Taste: sweet strawberry flavor which is almost creamy. There's a touch of tartness there as well which brings out the freshness. It's a bit cloying, though, and too sweet for me.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and concomitant creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this is a tasty and drinkable fruit brew. It's a bit on the sweet side, but that's not unusual for the style. If you like strawberries, you should like this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy light ruby in color with a two finger tall off-white/pink head. The head reduces to a thin layer of bubbles with a thicker ring of bubbles at the edges of the glass. The beer exhibits significant lacing.

S: Very sweet strawberry is the primary flavor but not as sweet as a soda or juice. Very pleasant.

T: The flavor is both sweet and sour strawberry, there is a very subtle hint of malts but not a lot.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Really enjoyable like the other Sam Smith fruit beers. Very sessionable and something I will definitely get again.
