Beer poured a murky brownish-red colour with a sticky head that left little lace. Tough to find a hint of beer in the aroma, mostly the strawberry jam that appears to be mixed with this beer. Taste is not far off from a punch that might be served at a picnic with a very small hint of the Witbeer that is well-hidden under all the fruit juice. Soft feel in the mouth, smooth. Alcohol is hard to find as well, but I guess this is only 4.1% anyways. You could drink a lot of these on a summer day, just don't try to convince me that I'm drinking beer. My girlfriend loved it, and she dosen't like beer, so that says something.

Had this beer on tap at the Conwy Castle Hotel in Wales, UK last week. It was listed as a "dessert beer" on the their menu along with the chocolate mousse, raspberry tart, etc. While I am not a fan of fruit / vegetable beers (and can understand why others have rated this beer so poorly), this beer quite simply blew me away. It was awesome! Even the two wine drinkers at the table loved it, one of whom is 79 years old! For me, the taste was what did it for me - like drinking a strawberry shortcake - it is just a perfect example of what this brewery must have intended. Reminded me of a New Glarus raspberry beer I tried about a year ago, only better. I will seek this out if I can find it in the States and drink it on special occasions for dessert.
