look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

550 ml bottle to Samuel Smith imperial tulip pint glass

Appearance: orangish with a red hue mixed in, bubbly white head

Smell: pure, almost overpowering strawberry smell. I can't get much else through it

Taste: again, pure strawberries up front with a little bit of hoppy flavor to balance it out on the finish. Much less overpowering than the smell

Mouth feel: light and crisp, as expected. Goes down super easy

Overall: not my favorite style, but I get cravings for a fruit beer once in a while and this one is what they say it is. Genuine strawberry through and through
