Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a cloudy, opaque, pale yellow coloring with a slight ring of white bubbling on the surface. Aromas of lemon zest, berry sweetness, and a roasted grain backbone. Smells inviting and sweet. Flavors are darkly sweet, with a grainy backbone supporting raspberry and strawberry sweetness. Carbonation provides an effervescent feel in mouth, keeping the palate light. The aftertaste is berry sweetness with hints of roast, leading to a clean, slightly effervescent finish. Refreshing and sweet, I can see how this would be good in a mid-summer swelter.

My strawberry infused shandy says that it's a seasonal, not sure which season but the expiration date is good until August 2014. This one looks pretty close to the lemon version, maybe a shade deeper honey golden, with a bright white head forming thick creamy textured foam. Aromatics contain bright strawberry jam notes, sharp wheat and bready grains, hint of chalky yeast accents. The tart strawberry accent along with some candied malts. Flavor very sweet and cloying it's like lathering your tongue with strawberry jam, a bit of bready malts and yeast notes are caught in the finish but there's really no balance to this one. Mouthfeel is hard to describe, but damn it's hard to stomach too sweet the wife or the drain either one can finish this one. Carbonation doesn't seem to be an issue it's just the dessert level of strawberry sweetness, makes me want to add some cream cheese and pretzels to balance it out to a strawberry pretzel dessert shandy. Overall, I will pass on this super sweet offering, I like strawberries in all forms but this one was over the top with sweetness.

Such a good summer beer! I suggest staying away from this during the colder months because it's fruity taste and refreshing mouthfeel are really meant for the summer and early fall, however, this is a really nice treat wherever you are as long as you don't take yourself super seriously! Highly drinkable, suited for literally any situation (depending on the season) and can be drank at a variety of temperatures, although i prefer lower 40s to low 60s (F)

I have to admit that I was a tad surprised to see this lineup of ales on this site, but I am not complaining, either. It is a tried-and-true style with well-developed historical roots. Plus, it makes for a nice change of pace from the seeming onslaught of AIPAs.

From the bottle: "Quite a Refresher!"; "Got some TIME on your hands? Find us on Facebook and Twitter".

I could see its cloudiness even while it was still in the bottle, so there was no need for gentility in my pour. I produced two fingers of dense, French Vanilla-colored head with decent retention. Color was a cloudy orangish-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7), like freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice. Nose was both sweet and tart with the strawberry and lemon scents commingling nicely. Mouthfeel was kind of watery but the taste was pleasantly imbalanced on the strawberry side with the lemony zest as a kind of undercurrent. Finish was semi-sweet with the lemon tartness keeping the strawberry sweetness in check. Once more, it would probably be better on a hot, humid summer's day, but here I am in early winter ...
