doesn't look like a short cake. kind of hazy orange/red. hmmm. head is dismal as well. smells sweet and grainy. a sort of artificial sweetness. not finding this too shortcake-y quite yet. until I sip it! yeah that is a whole lot of strawberry. some vanilla in the finish and a little bit of body make this cake-like as well. very interesting. while this is artificial tasting and gimic-y, it certainly comes off with many strawberry shortcake characteristics. this is my first review from short's and from what I understand is this is their bag, so in that case, well done!

2014, just picked up two six packs from Hardings in Kalamazoo.

Appears dark rose and copper colored with an off-white head. Slight lacing on the glass.

Aroma of strawberries and malts.

Taste is very confusing. It starts with fresh strawberry but immediately I pick up a harsh malty note. The finish is very pleasant with a graham cracker and shortcake flavor. If you wait for it, the taste of shortcake really does appear.

Mouthfeel is enjoyable with good carbonation and its pretty smooth.

Overall a decent and interesting beer
