Heavy plastic phenols. Very unpleasant. Maybe let this one sit for a while

Lovely initial creaminess from strawberry, though this disappears after a few sips. Tart, oak, cedar, mild funk. Similar to Colour Five except for creaminess.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Ruby red and pinkish body. Medium white head.

Smell - Lots of strawberries. Really comes through. A little jammy.

Taste - Strawberry. Lightly sour. Kinda yeasty. Astringent and woody. Not a very strong flavor.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Pretty light. Pleasantly tart, but not what I'd call really sour.

Overall - What flavor it has is nice. The strawberry doesn't quite come through as much in the flavor, but that's not really a surprise.

Best strawberry beer I have ever tasted. Dry, sour, and lots of strawberry.
