4.05/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Yellowish orange, maybe my eyes were playing tricks but seems to be a little pink in this. Wasn't poured with a lot of head, think that was what the bartender was going for.

S - Wheat and strawberries. Really that's it.

T - I am not a fan of fruit beers, but this one is really good. Nice and grainy, and the strawberries come at the end. Nice creamy, strawberry taste, that is more than a hint but doesn't overpower and wreck the rest of the beer. Pleasantly surprised.

M - Light bodied, mild carbonation.

D - Easily drinkable. Even though it's sweet, it's not too sweet and can get a lot of this down.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a dense hazy orange body with a very slight pinkness to the hue. There is a snow-white rocky head that fades to a thin film. There is no sign of carbonation in this murky brew.

S- The light smell of white wheat bread has a note of some darker bread crust but it is pretty clean overall.

T- The taste of white bread and raw wheat has a note of overly ripe strawberries with a very slight jam note to it. There is a slight nougat note followed by a tangy note and some yeasty flavors. There is a very faint bitterness in the finish that is only noticed when the beer is warmer. There is also a light butter flavor in the yeasty notes when the beer is pretty warm.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a tight fizz in the finish. There is a watery quality to the texture.

D- This beer is very filling but is not very flavorful. The strawberry flavor doesn’t add anything to the beer and it has a slight ether flavor as if the strawberries were overripe.
