2.45/5 rDev -22.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
12oz bottle. Light amber with a touch of haze. Thin eggshell colored fizzy head. Not much lace or retention action going on. Acid in the "strawberry flavor" perhaps?
Bland, hints of metal, with a very faint strawberry extract aroma.
Fizzy and light mouthfeel leads to a rather acidic, sharp, fruity faux-strawberry, half-chewed bubble-gum flavor. Some lemon/lime, salt and leaf characters towards the finish, which is over in a quick flash on the palate, leaving a dry palate. Wheat twang and crispness. If there's any hops character it's masked by the sharpness of this beer. Malts? Maybe traces of grain underneath, but the strawberries dominate this brew. As much as this is an uncommon and interesting fruit to use, the acidic and faux-strawberry character is a bit annoying, making for a very unbalanced brew. I'm not impressed, but a fruit beer freak might wanna give this a try.

3.08/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
Appearance: A typical wheat beer froth, it seems to stick around a bit as well. Hazy straw amber color sort of murky looking.
Smell: Smells a little bit like strawberry soda extract. A neutral malt and yeast are in the back.
Taste: Odd strawberry fruit flavor, the wheat leaves a mild twang and there is sweetness all around from the wheat and feigned by the fruit flavor. Hops are extremely small on the palate with a lasting strawberry flavor in the finish.
Notes: A fruit beer is a fruit beer is a fruit beer this one of those fruit beers.
