Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and an artificial strawberry aroma. Taste is much the same with a soapy and medicinal strawberry flavor that lingers long after each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer with fake aromas and flavors that make it a chore to drink.

22 ounce bottle - $7.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a bright yellow body, fairly clear, with an inch-high head of white foam.

Smell: A scent of strawberry additive with some modest maltiness lingering, languishing underneath.

Taste: Scant pale malts, faintly grainy, with little imparted sweetness, and not very much strawberry flavor, really. Then, all the flavors (and hope of at least an acceptable fruit beer) vanish, leaving a strong ground aspirin flavor. Bleh!

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Bleh! A failed beer.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

MST3K deserves a fitting pairing. Enter: Ass Kisser Berry Nice Ass strawberry witbier. BAM! This stuff pours a lightly hazy pale straw topped by a half-finger of short-lived lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises strawberry Runts, Country Time lemonade, and a touch of funky wheat for the sake of variety. The taste bludgeons my tongue with some sort of putrefied stone fruit that happens to have been sprinkled with the remnants of inappropriately-aged lemon-topped oatmeal. This is horrendously bad right here. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, a terrible mess of a beer, one with no redeeming value, and one that challenges the amount of painful sadness emitted by this episode ("Being from Another Planet"). Damn.

Cloudy yellow colored beer with a small white head.

Smell is strawberry and wheat malt. Little bit of vanilla and caramel in the smell.

Starts out slightly sweet with a mild strawberry scent. Little bit of hop bitterness and a seltzer water carbonation level.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall not that great, Blue Moon is far better.

This hasn't been added so I thought I would add it, despite my reservations about this brewery.

Pours a cloudy whitish-yellow color with a one-finger head into my glass. It's bright and easy.

Sweet with the unmistakable essence of strawberry on the nose. Light and likely very crisp.

Flavors are somewhat flat, with sweet strawberry essence, wheat and a bit of citrus.

Mouthfeel is middle of the road too. Still clean regardless.

Not a bad attempt here. It's better than the hefeweizen but not by much.

Strong aroma is almost entirely strawberry. I love strawberries, and I enjoy strawberry beer - but when strawberry overwhelms all of the other aromas, that is a bit much. Pours a clear canary yellow with a fairly thick white head. Flavor is - meh. At least strawberry doesn’t dominate the flavor as it does the bouquet (can one say that in a beer review?), and the malty and hop-woody flavors do outweigh the strawberry, though there is a nice hint of sour citrus, the flavor lacks depth and strength. Texture has decent fizz, but body is lacking. Oh well, back to the drawing board, so to speak.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured into a perfect pint.

2.75 A: Lightly hazed medium yellow color. One finger of frothy white head. Retention is below average and a touch of lacing is left.

2.25 S: Smells like those strawberry crispy cookie things. The ones with the white creamy stuff in layers. That's about all it smells like.

2.0 T: Tastes kind of like how it smells, but if you threw the cookie things in a pale ale. Not crazy about it.

2.5 M: Lighter to lighter medium body. Moderate carbonation but lacking creaminess.

2.0 D: Sucks. That's about all you need to know.

Poured into my Busch Gardens Budweiser Select flute. Looks like a Witbier.. Big delicately bubbly white head, decent retention and some lacing.

Smell is very ordinary, kind of an artificial fruit/vegetable smell.

Taste is pretty average also. Lemon zest and artificial strawberry flavor (when warmed up). Cold it is more a generice fruit/vegetable taste.

Mourfeel is light and crisp Good as a thirst quencher / lawnmower beer for the warm weather.

Not terrible, but nothing special.

22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Never seen this beer before today, and never seen the brand outside of BevMo here in SoCal. Pours a hazed lemon/orange with a thin cap of whitish foam which sticks around moderately.

Nose of strawberry, wheat and yeast with a light funkiness imbued through it all. Strawberry notes are a bit artificial as expected and remind me somewhat of that strawberry milk powder as a kid. Still there's enough balancing factors to keep it from deterring too much.

Taste offers a less prominent berry influence than the nose might suggest. Slightly grainy in taste and with a light coriander spice. Pretty standard on the feel and finish though does come up a bit short as a witbier in that the wheat influence is a bit subdued and the carbonation a bit light. Better than feared after seeing a few reviews but not something I'll be returning to either. Still, likely an older than maybe it should be wit though no date code to be found on bottle.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Poured a hazy faint yellow orange with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a small ring with little to no lacing.

S: A really nice whiff of strawberries and a little floral hops with a touch of sweet malt lingering under everything.

T: Very surprising... not a lot strawberries in the taste... More sweet malt with a grainy grassy hops mixed in. Finish is a little bitter with a hint of strawberries only in the aftertaste.

M: Pretty light bodied with some sharp carbonation that is very lively on the tongue, finish is a little on the dry side.

O: Not a bad beer to say, but not a very good fruit beer, if that was what they were aiming for. If you are looking for strawberry, look elsewhere.
