look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- golden yellow in color with good amount of murkiness from the wheat, nice bubbles stream nicely up the glass, white head fades thin lacing,
Smell- all i can really get off this smell is tons of strawberry and berry, fruit dominated nose
Taste- get a little bit of wheat up front then all i get what so ever is lots of fake berrys and strawberry flavors, to me this flavor is identical to that of boo berry cereal, its not offensive but its just very fake and kinda over done, its not sweet but just bit much for me to love,
Mouthfeel- very well carbonated light crisp, nice feel creamy smooth
Overall/drinkability- this beer certainly is not hard to drink and the strawberry flavors to kind of grow on you though im not sure its something I would really be searching for again, to be fair fruit wheat beers are low on my beer todem pole but this one is inoffensive and decent, if you are into the style this may be worth look for you, if point its weakness the strawberry at times seems bit forced and strong but its strong point is due to light abv and crisp carbonation its decently refreshing and easy drink

I had the expectation that the strawberry would add some sort of light red to pink hue to this but instead it had the lightest of gold complexion with a fizzy white froth for a head.
The nose was a bit cardboardish and dull with no real strawberry but more a earthy fruit. No real sweetness hits the nose but only metallic grain.
The flavor is maybe a more real strawberry but not an overly appealing fruit flavor. There is no sweetness but more a dull, earthy gourd and bready malt.
The feel is metallic and light with a light carbonated bite.
I'm a big fan of the Purple Haze and had hoped this may emulate it a bit with just a different flavor but it falls far short of that.
