12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 120112.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a puffy 2 finger head. Tons of visible carbonation shooting to the top. Doesnt leave much lacing.

S: A blend of strawberry and ginger that ends like ripe vomit.

T: Good strawberry ginger wheat like taste but not for me. Too sweet.

M: Good bubbly mouthfeel

Overall a tough one to finish a bottle of. Maybe left to those who do not like real beer.

Pours a clean deep yellow color with a white. In the aroma, strawberry sweetness, with notes of ginger. In the taste, spice to strawberry sweetness, with a lingering ginger. A spice bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry ginger with a small strawberry sweetness in the aftertaste. The strawberry is decent, but the the ginger is just a bit too much.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I'm not sure about this beer, but I tend to like a bit more strawberry than blonde, if you catch my drift... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-hazy bronze-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises strawberry syrup backed by a firm contingent of bland wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, with the wheat taking the lead now, which, in turn, somehow makes the strawberry seem even more artificial than before. I'm not sure I'm getting any of the ginger they tell me is in there... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay beer at best, one that just seems too artificial and uncooperative for its own good.
