22oz bottle drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.

A- this one pours out a slightly hazy golden orange colored body with the slightest pinkish highlights. on top sits a pinkish white head that is about one finger tall. the head dissipates quickly and leaves behind little to no lacing.

S- the strawberries this is brewed with become apparent instantly. after that i get some biscuity and pale malts.

T- the taste stars out with some toasted bread and biscuity malts and is quickly followed up with fresh strawberries. the strawberries arnt over powering at all. slight noble hop finish at the end.

M- the body is on the lighter side of medium. the carbonation is just about average.

O- an enjoyable beer. not the most interesting one out there, but it accomplishes what the brewer set out to do quite nicely.

A - not too impressive.. Nonexistent head and a body that bears an uncanny resemblance to apple juice.

N - the nose is the best part of this one. I can pick up a lovely aroma of cherries mainly with some detectable strawberry and apple tones

M - too much carbonation.

T - kinda tastes like a lackluster apple juice

O - wouldn't buy again, just didn't like this one much at all.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I had no idea Oregon was such a breeding ground for strawberries, but okay. You learn something new every day. This stuff pours a cloudy brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises dry barley, mild strawberry flavoring syrup (as opposed to the syrup I used to heavily employ on my Pigs in a Blanket at IHOP), and a tiny bit of fiberglass (go on a boat and tell me I'm wrong). The taste brings in more of the same, with the strawberry flavor, as real as it supposedly is, appearing as though I were sucking on a decade-old Ring Pop, plastic band and all. It's not overly sweet, but closer to that end of the spectrum than the tart. In addition, this strawberry-ness clashes a bit with the underlying barley. Great. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I'm having this with only a year or so on it, but it seems like it's been sitting somewhere for much longer. Suffice it to say, I'm not much of a fan...

Served this 22 oz. brown bottle in a Sierra Nevada Hops glass. No date. The beer was hazy orange with a sizzling frothy head that was almost white. There was very active nucleation and a cap of creamy foam remained.

The smell was mildly fruity. Mild strawberries. However, it began to reek. I swear it smelled rotten! Worse as it warmed.

The taste was tart but stale strawberries. Too watery and thin. There didn't seem to be enough malts to compliment the berries. Garbage began to prevail, something is wrong here.

The mouthfeel was to thin but the fine carbonation was active. I ended up pouring this one down the drain. Disappointing.

We have strawberries all over our kitchen. I love strawberries, and pretty women. Why would I not try this beer and share it with my Ginger fiance. The international symbol for Gingers is teh strawberry appearantly.

Cloudy amber, copper, and wheat grain color. Nice head and good retention with nice bubbling.

The aroma makes me think of strawberry jelly. Not overpowering at all, dominant and well integrated aroma. Toasted cracker and unmalted barley malt aroma mixes well.

Strawberry jelly spread on toasted white bread. Can't detect any hops, but I imagine they're there for flavor balance. I like this beer. Perfect for Summer with its soft, gritty, and carbonated palate.

22 oz. bottle tried 24 Nov 2011. Served in the 0.4 L Herren Pils snifter.

Tiny slightly rose tinged white head. Lightly carbonated. Hazy rosy amber in color. Aroma is strawberry tart, reminiscent of strawberry muffins. Light strawberry to start, not particularly sweet. Light body, ethanol is well hidden (would not have guessed more than 5%). Not very complex, just light strawberry and a touch of buttery sweet malts. Somewhat sweet finish.

Not bad, but nothing to make me want a second one.

22oz bottle poured into a couple large snifters

Pours pinkish orange with a small head. Slight cloudiness due to the small amount of sediment as the bottom of the bottle. Smell is lagery and moderately fruity.

Taste is not so nice. Kinda blah beer with fake-tasting strawberry flavor. I'm going to have to remember not to get this again.

Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Overall, not a fan. It just doesn't taste good. Sorry Bridgeport, I usually like your beers, but this one's a bust.
