Upon first pour, there’s a one finger head that dissipates quickly with little to no lacing. Unlike the raspberry beers I’ve been having lately, there’s no pink or reddish color to it. It’s a slightly cloudy light golden yellow with visible, active, carbonation. On the nose is, you guessed it, strawberries, but also a little bit of wheat. On first sip, I remember how easy it is to put these away on a hot day. I was discussing today how I have a hard time drinking heavy beers in the summer, and it’s because of how easy these types of beers go down in the heat. There’s definite strawberries on the taste, but it’s not overwhelming. The carbonation is pleasant. It’s almost like the “beer taste” stands up to the strawberries. It’s not syrupy or sweet like some fruit beers. It’s what I would call “well balanced.” This is probably one of the most drinkable beers I’ve had.

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.
