Thanks to urbancaver for this treat!
Poured into a tall flute...
I was warned this was a gusher so I opened it very very slowly.... there was a ton of carb coming out. Pretty sure that if I had just popped it I would of lost a good amount of beer.
the most gentle pour possible produced a huge fluffy slightly pink head. with tons of bubbles streaming from the bottom.
the aroma is crushed and strawberries! with a bit of yellow cake vanilla sweetness in the back.
the mouthfeel it way to prickly... some extra swurling helps kill to carb a bit and after that you are able to get a bit more of the bread cake flavor.
the taste is exactly what you would expect.... strawberries and cake flavor... me and my friend thought it was pretty tasty!
Is it my favorite beer... no. but for what it is supposed to be... i think it is pretty awesome.

Thanks to sarro for the bottle. Tasted 14 November 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours a clean amber, mostly but not totally clear (can't quite see through it). Half-finger of whitish head, okay retention and lacing.
Smells like strawberry shortcake! Sweet and sugary and strawberry. Like sponge cake and strawberries in a crazy beery combination. Always impressive when people can make beers smell or taste like weird non-beer things.
Taste doesn't have as much going on as the smell; more toasty bready malts than cake or berries. Gets more interesting as I progress through it.
Medium-bodied. Juicy and expansive, but a little flat.
A nice strawberry beer (not that I've had all that many). Pretty tasty, definitely fruity and interestingly sweet. Unique, with that sweet cake and strawberry.
