Poured into a pint glass. Pours slightly hazy and a light, reddish yellow color with a two-finger length white head. the head recedes slowly, leaving some lacing on the glass. Some bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass, which seems to indicate adequate carbonation. The smell is of pale wheat malt and strawberry. The aroma is fairly mild and clean. The strawberry flavor immediately hits the tongue on the first sip. The wheat malt also comes through, but the strawberry flavor is pretty dominant. The hop flavor is very mild, but some bitterness is present in the back end. This helps lend a little balance. The body is light and there is moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. The drinkability is very high. When you have one of these, you can understand why this is anticipated as much as it is. It is a solid, refreshing beer that is much better than their perennial fruit beer offering Purple Haze. This is very enjoyable on a warm day or as an after meal drink. It really cleans the palate well. This is one of the better examples of fruit beer I've tried.

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.
