On tap @ Pizza Port Solana Beach on 3/19/10. Served in a tulip glass. This was described to me as a lighter style Ale brewed with strawberries and Belgian yeast.
Pours a slightly hazy light pink, with a thin covering of bright-white foam. This retains with some frothy thickness around the edges of the glass, leaving some fairly big foamy swathes of lacing behind. The aroma consists of light floral tones and the faint scent of strawberries. I'm getting some definite esters and spice that are present from the yeast, reminding me somewhat of what you would find in a Witbier.
The taste has some light strawberry flavor and toasted grainy sweetness going on with it. Hops are lively on the tongue and the yeast gives the profile an almost airy feel (I likened it to a perfume-like quality that you would maybe find in an aroma) on the palate. Lots of dryness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied, with a crisp and effervescent feel to it that prickles the mouth with flavor. This is probably the highlight of the beer for me, as it does keep this quite quaffable for the most part.
This was decent enough I guess, but the main problem with this is that strawberries, in general, just aren't a fruit that puts out a ton of flavor. Body and drinkibility had a nice cripsness to it though, which at least kept this pleasant to drink.
