I picked this up at StoneGrill in York as part of a mix-a-six, poured chilled from the can in a tumbler.
The color is deep golden with light haze and thick white cream head that settles. The smell is like strawberry cream soda-not beer like in any sense very sweet extract aroma. The feel is as unenjoyable as the aroma with cloying sweet and very heavy on the carbonation like soda with chalky dry medicinal finish.
The taste is not nearly as good as the aroma with a candy-like strawberry flavor -very soda type sweetened syrupy and artificial just lacks any 'beer flavor' maybe a hint of wheat at the finish but not good malt flavor -no yeast presence in the taste. Overall possibly the worst wheat/fruit combo I have ever tried - pretty awful like disgustingly sweet strawberry cream soda - mix this with tequila or dump it because it is not good to drink on its own.

An excellent strawberry wheat ale. A nice light golden color. Strong strawberry smell, but the fruit flavor is not overwhelming like some fruity wheat beers. "Schweet", but not sickeningly sweet. Very drinkable, great for a thirsty summer afternoon.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is exploding with strawberries. Taste is also full of strawberry, a bit of wheat, slight sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

This is a very good strawberry wheat beer. The strawberry smell and taste are pronounced, yet are not overpowering. My fiancee is not really a beer drinker and she tried it first and loved it. So I was not sure I would like it, but I was very surprised how much I did like it. It is very refreshing.

I'm amazed I like this; got talked into it by my wife & the bartender @ The Hodle Tavern, New Freedom PA. I normally would run screaming away from any beer with a fruit component. At first, I thought the backtaste was honey; only when I went on line @Liquid Hero did I understand that the taste was a very light touch of strawberry. This is now my wife's favorite craft beer. I must say that the taste is light enough that the quality of the ale isn't swallowed by the hint of strawberry. Since then I've had the opportunity to talk to the brewers at their excellent small ale house and they will soon be bottling this as well as their outstanding Irregardless Pale Ale

On tap at Liquid Hero.
Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of strawberry candy (I can smell it across the room) and toasted wheat. Lots of strawberry sweetness in the taste, candy-like and artificial, but not necessarily bad, toasted wheat in the background, and light hop bitterness. Hello, ladies! Light-medium body, crisp and easily drinkable. Something I have to be in the mood for, but it's not a bad fruit beer.
Note: now that they're canning these, it should be said...watch out for over-carbonation.
