12 oz. Bottle, not date
This beer poured a hazy brown/orange/amber color that would be typical with a wheat beer, decent carbonation. Some head was noticeable after a vigorous pour, creamy and white but not long lasting before it fell to nothing. No lace seemed to be present. The aromas were fairly simple, light strawberry, some malt, some wheat and yeast. Kind of reminded me of a home brew from a new person, yeasty. The tastes that were noticeable were mostly of strawberries all throughout, which is a good thing since it is a strawberry fruit beer, other flavors that seemed to come out were wheat, light malt, some sweet flavors and some tart flavors were noticeable throughout as well. It ended with a light strawberry taste and that yeasty homebrew residue. Not much if any aftertaste was noticeable. The body was light. This kind of reminded me of a strawberry soda but I couldnt get by that yeasty homebrew taste. Fairly refreshing and a decent beer, not the best fruit beer that I have had, but it is easy and drinkable.

A faint off-white froth attempts to form on the surface of this brew and does just manage to skim it for awhile. The beer itself lies somewhere between dark yellow and pale orange. A bit of loose bubbling sticks to the glass sporadically.
The aroma is a bit too artificial for me. Extracts are fine, though not as good as fresh, but there's still some technique to making it more real that isn't executed especially well here. Still, the malts set down the backbone with plenty of wheat, and the strawberry isn't either under or overplayed.
It comes off with a strong sweetness at first, fairly syrupy, then a sour/tart tang kicks in along with the wheat. There's a vague hint of leaf, but it begins seeming a lot like a strawberry soda. Fortunately, malt and hops aren't completely left out of the equation.
I expect the body to be light, and it is, but the feel is slightly improved over both what my expectations would be tasting it and what it's like at the beginning. That said, there's only enough carbonation, crispness and smoothness to be barely better than average. It threatens a little mix of slick and sticky but shies off just as it seems inevitable.
