Looks like a cream ale. Light straw yellow body with bubbly, prickly carbonation. It smells like strawberries, but theres still a good amount of the base creamy sweet beer floating around. I like how the creaminess works with the straweberry scents.

This thing is laden with the fresh strawberry flavors that I love to death. Theres loads of fresh strawberries waiting for you, yet it doesnt feel candy sweet. Its like they took one hell of base beer, and just dry hopped the shit out of it with fresh strawberries. The only negative is theres a bit of an astringent bit that feels just a bit too crisp.

Take that away, and youve got one hell of a beer.

on tap at sams in Durham. into a pint glass.

pours a darker golden color with a half inch white head. pretty nice looking pour. smell is of faint fruits, strawberries. very pleasant. taste is a tad sweet with a good strawberry flavor on the back of the tongue. easy drinker. light body with mild carbonation. good feel.

overall an enjoyable summer beer that should probably be rated higher. i could drink this all day.
