Pours out an orange amber with a small white head.
Smell. Strawberries dominate in a preservative aroma, as it is mostly sweet with just a little tartness. I enjoy the level of the strawberries in the aroma- not too strong, and not too weak where it is not noticable.
Taste. Level of strawberries is still moderate. Has the flavor, but the sweetness i got from the aroma is mostly gone. It's like a low sugar or sugar free strawberry preservative. Aftertaste is a touch creamy.
Mouthfeel. Body is fuller for a wheat and comes a little creamy.
Overall, a tasty beer, and one I could see enjoying, just one at a time. Abita's strawberry lager is still the best strawberry beer i've had, this one may be second.

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.
