look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A - pours a cloudy apricot amber, nearly no head at all with a moderate, becoming aggressive pour.

Smell - as expected, strawberries. It's mild and pleasant. Very little else comes through however.

Taste - not much traditional beer taste whatsoever. No presence of hops or barley that I can detect. As a beverage this is delicious, but I have a hard time viewing it as a beer. It's a tasty wine cooler that somehow skirted the technical classifications to cheat itself into a category to be labeled a "beer". I'm not mad at this beverage and am not detracting it in any category other than overall for the mere reason that it's enjoyable, but simply somewhat imposing on what it calls itself.

Mouthfeel - is tremendous. It possesses extremely crisp, prickly and refreshing carbonation with a perfectly dry aftertaste that allows its fruit flavor to linger for a second or so after.

Overall - a good drink but a questionable "beer"

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A - Looks interesting, a light red colour almost like a fruit cider.

S - Deep strong strawberry fragrance.

T - Tastes like ripe strawberries. Not very beer like but still very nice, almost addictive to the tongue!

M - A little bubbly but not much in comparison to a normal beer. Watery and a bit more like a soda than beer.

O - A tasty interesting beer. Not much going on in terms of complex flavours but easy to drink and nice if you have a sweet tooth.
