4.43/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: straw colored, nice big white head. Loads of bubbles.
Smell: Straight up sweet strawberries. Simple and wonderful.
Taste: More of the same. Simple and delicious.
Overall : this is dangerously drinkable. I love a complex barrel aged stout but I can't imagine a better fit for this hot May Ga. Evening.

2.8/5  rDev -25.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Pours an orangish/apricot color with a half inch thick, off-white head that dissipates instantly.

Smell - Very sweet and I can only detect strawberry aromas..

Taste - WAY too fruity.. Extremely sweet and you have to really love strawberries to enjoy this beer. Slightly bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - I'm honestly grossed out by this beer... I can't handle more than a couple sips of it lol.

From the look I would guess this to be a regular IPA as opposed to a fruit ale. It pours an apricot color with a fleeting, bright white head.

Nose is all strawberry juice. You can pick it up as soon as you pop the cap, the smell turns the room into a strawberry field. A bit too strong.

You really have to like fruit to enjoy this beer. It's extreme fruit juice. There is some carbonation and it makes it hard to distinguish this as a beer as opposed to some ridiculously sweet soft drink. There are some spices I picked up as well, cinnamon maybe, but this is all strawberry.

Very carbonated, very sweet with some spices and the carbonation added for balance. Slightly tart finish.

It's not something I'd want to have every day, but would make a good beer for the warmer weather months. Not bad, just a bit extreme in all characteristics.

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.
