Pours a slightly reddish amber with a light beige, 2 finger head. Decent retention and a bit of lacing too. Pleasant strawberry smell, a little bit of malt hanging in the background. Taste is a very mild strawberry sweetness, nicely balanced with a bit of soggy wheat and malt, just enough hop presence to balance it out. As fruit beers go this is a pretty tasty one, although I think the strawberry would start to get to me after too many.

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.
