Pours a bright yellow with amber highlights. Similar to the other flavor I tried. I think it's meant to evoke the image of a wheat beer to the casual drinker.

I smell what has to be strawberry or some type of berry (the label isn't clear). Smells like strawberry Kool-Aid.

Ditto on the taste. A middle of the road berry taste that again is likely strawberry. Crisp and inoffensive. A decent amount of body and carbonation is more tolerable than the other flavor.

Lingering fake strawberry bakes the tongue.

Not a bad idea if you don't want a straight-forward beer, or malt beverage. Shandy isn't just a fad. It has a long and interesting history.

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.
