2.35/5 rDev -19.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Presentation: 12 oz brown logn neck bottle. No freshness date.
Appearance: Clear, golden straw color with a thin pure white head.
Smell: Smell of unsweetened strawberry store brand jam, some dextrin sweetness is a bit cloying. Other than that it has a clean nose.
Taste: Light to medium body with an up front crisp carbonation, thin malt palate with some left over dextrin floating around. Hops are there just to balance the dextrin and strawberry flavour so it does not seem to close to a wine cooler. Thankfully a handful of grain comes through and shows off some beer character, alcohol is slightly noticeable with a touch or warmth. The fruit (strawberry) flavour is not too over done and seems withdrawn compared to the old “Pete’s” version. This brew end towards dryness though it wants to be sweet.
Notes: A fruit beer is a fruit beer, at least this is not a wine cooler. Aimed at the chick beer drinking crowd or the guy who is a girl drink drunk.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle which I found a dusty shelf in a convenience store. It was marked 09220-0832. If it is no longer brewed I wonder how old my bottle was.
It still looked good for a retired beer with a medium amber-copper color, loads of upwardly mobile carbonation and great clarity.
The aroma is strawberry forward with vaguely roasted malts on the backside and a touch of hops.
The body was medium and very creamy or smooth.
The strawberry was more downplayed in the taste than in the aroma but there is an overpowering malty and buttery flavor going on. Like I said, I have no idea how old this bottle was but I thought it was decent enough.
