First off, this is a fruit beer, and a very fruity fruit beer at that. It is light. It is highly carbonated. It is sweet. It tastes like strawberries and vanilla. It might strike a few points off of your man card. But damned if it isn't tasty. It looks, tastes and smells more like strawberry soda than beer, but it tastes like fresh picked strawberries and not "strawberry flavored red chemical with benzene #8". I thoroughly enjoyed it on a hot day, but not something I'm going to grab for when I'm looking for a "beer".

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.
