Had this years ago and never reviewed it - finally had it again last night at the Cloverleaf since this was the only time that they had it on tap during the colder weather months. I wasn't that impressed with this beer the first time around and that was also the case here, even though this wasn't anything that I had a hard time downing. It just didn't feel like beer to me and if you're looking for hops, you'll still be searching into an empty bottle or pint glass once you're done finishing this off...

This had a dark blonde hue to it as there seemed to be a bit of syrupy red mixed in as well. Not a potent head but the lacing was present along the back side of my pint glass after every sip. Hardly any hops to the nose and even less in the taste - this felt like a flat soda with some syrup thrown in for good measure. Wheat? It's in there but there wasn't any trace of it except for some sour grass and sharpness to the grain-like flavor that could be discerned around the strawberry. Somewhat slick, the syrup made this go down easy but it felt like something I would have had when I was underage at a wedding.

Had I wanted another, it wouldn't have been that hard as I didn't feel or taste the alcohol at any part of my experience with this. While not a drain pour, only someone looking for a good "lawnmower beer" or someone into fruit will find delight in this. Otherwise, the strawberry syrup/juice/puree was too strong to appreciate any other redeeming characteristics this may have had and it's beers like this that make me stay away from this style. Good for reminding me what I might have imbibed 10 or 20 years ago.
