The brew pours a very pale yellow with a finger of white froth. Some spotty suds of lace stick to the glass and overall the cap shows decent retention. A swirl revives a finger to the surface.
The aroma includes notes of wheat and fresh cereal grains with a subtle addition of seedy strawberry sweetness that gets a bit sugary as it warms up. The strawberry hint is fairly impressive as it adds a nice nuance to the otherwise plain nose.
The flavor is wheaty and cereal-like with a seedy strawberry flavor that is present without having to search for it. This is pleasantly complex with a hint of grassy quality into the finish. A mild sulfur inclusion is the only telling sign of this being a lager. The otherwise strong grain presence makes me think wheat beer.
This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is clean and easy drinking/refreshing. Not something I see myself getting into and buying but it was nice to have a go at and at least say I tried it.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A: Poured pale hazy yellow with fingers worth of head that settles to a ring with some spotty lacing.
S: First thing I'm is of course strawberry with a mix sweet vanilla upfront... Not much else but it works for this brew.
T: I'm getting wheat upfront with a hint of citrus, things turn sweet mid-palette with strawberry and vanilla. Finish is also sweet but a little more corny in the end.
M: Light with good lively carbonation and a clean finish.
O: Hey it is what it is.... a strawberry wheat and it is very good at being that. Worth looking for if you like the style.
