500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big juicy strawberry, white sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal. Fantastic aromas with huge strawberry presence and balanced malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big juicy strawberry, sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal. Some slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of strawberry, white sugar, light caramel, bread, and light herbal on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness and balance of juicy strawberry flavor and malt sweetness; with minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. Huge robustness of strawberry flavors and balanced malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

If you're looking for a refreshing beer for the summer....THIS IS IT! I bought this on a whim since I love the Organic Chocolate Stout and was not disappointed. It pours to a golden amber with an absolutely perfect head. The aroma is strictly strawberry and it goes down almost as fast as you can drink it.
I am usually a dark/stout drinker and this ale has converted me...give it a try.

First review. Love the bottle, somewhere between a bomber and a regular 12 oz. The smell of this beer is very noticeable, unlike some beers that do not smell like their underlying fruit. This one IS strawberries. Taste was good, but a strong sourness lingered. Not like drinking a lambic. Overall a good fruit beer.

Presentation: 19.2 oz brown bottle, served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Cloudy amber color, with a one finger head that dissolves into a layer of foam that stays over the beer at all times. There's no lacing at all on the glass.
Smell: It smells strongly of strawberry hard candy. It's a very sweet scent.
Taste: Very sweet, just like the nose. Strawberry and malt flavors are all that's here, there's no bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, with high carbonation. It gets quite cloying after a while, but it's not a big issue.
Overall: A very sweet beer with huge strawberry flavors and scents. Not revolutionary or special to be honest, but a very fun experience and a must have for fruit beer lovers.
