Pee colored with no head. Smells like artificial strawberry flavoring. It tastes like green apples and strawberries. Very sour. I wouldn't really call this beer. It might as well be a Mike's Hard or Bacardi Ice. The only reason I would buy this again would be if I was with a girl who doesn't like the taste of beer.

No foam head at head.

Light Pale Color.

It's way to sweet for my taste, sugary sweet with sour aftertaste. Also this beer is way carbonated like a pop drink. Taste more like cider than a Ale beer.

Had a hard time to finishing this beer. Won't drink again and won't recommend.

From a can.

Perfume and sweet apples on the nose

No head, no film, no collar, no lace

Tastes like apple juice with some strawberries mixed in. Barely beer, waste of good water. Pass it by. I snared a can at a party to bring home, glad I did not pay any $ for this.

12 oz clear bottle into a snifter. Best before May 05 14

Pours a crystal clear super light golden yellow color. White head fizzed away instantly after the pour leaving absolutely nothing.

An apple cidery aroma with mostly strawberry. Fake candy green apple. Very artificial and very sweet smelling. Almost medicinal.

The taste is pretty much all sweet sugary artificial strawberry. Very watery. This is a beer?

Super light in body, very watery.

This is like a straight up wine cooler, I don't know how they get off calling this a beer. Too sugary, too fake tasting.

I can't say this beer doesn't look the way I expect It to, and similar to the apple version: like carbonated apple juice. There's about five seconds of fizzy white head that spritzes like a soda and drops off completely. Little spotting is left but, hey, it's there.
Strawberry is there, kind of like those wrapped candies that always somehow got out of the wrapper and stuck to the bottom on the inside and got sticky pick stuff all over your fingers when you finally pulled it out covered with white fuzz. There's also a pressed cider/apple aspect, and I wonder if, like juice blends, this beer utilizes some of the original apple. It's sweet with a little dusty malt, and I think maybe some caramel malts were used as a hint comes out on the tongue. This will satisfy the crowd who likes wine coolers but wants to look cool by drinking a beer. To borrow a more recent colloquialism, it's alcopop.
The feel isn't too bad. It's thin, to be sure, but not too watery, and the crispness keeps things going. It could be cleaner on the end, but it's not too grainy and, fortunately, not sticky.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like artificial strawberries with some grain tossed into the mix.
Appearance- The best part of this experience, a light copper color with no head to speak of.
Taste- Incredibly sweet, but an artificial sweet flavor with a beer aftertaste, not for me.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation with a sweet tart candy like experience for the aftertaste.
Overall- I do enjoy some fruit beers but this is just so over the top and artificial I didn't care for it.
