Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazy mild golden color. Upon pouring there was a three finger white head on the brew that faded over a moderate amount of time to give a nice amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma, as would be expected is mostly of strawberry. The strawberry is mixed with a sugary sweet and wheat aroma.
Taste – The taste begins sweet and wheaty. At the front the sweet is more of a sugary sweet with the wheat having a more pronounced role. As the taste advances however the wheaty nature dies out some with grater flavors of a strawberry sweetness coming to the tongue. In the end a somewhat artificial, yet rather pleasant and refreshing strawberry flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is thin and the carbonation is on the higher side. Both are very fitting for the flavor and create a rather refreshing feel.
Overall- Refreshing, flavorful, and easy drinking. A great summer brew for a nice hot day outside while sitting with friend and chatting.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: light golden-yellow hue with a light haze and effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam with decent retention. Not bad.
Smell: lightly malty aroma with a moderate strawberry note. Not over the top, which I like, but also not terribly complex.
Taste: much like the aroma, there's a light malt flavor with a fair bit of strawberry character. I'm generally not a fan of strawberry beers; I think the fruit is too subtle to really stand out in a beer context.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.
Overall: this beer is fine, although it really doesn't float my boat. Well-enough made, it just doesn't have a strong appeal.
