A recent find that absolutely blew my mind. I found it at Wegman's here in Central PA and I was floored with how balanced this was. Starting off, the nose on this was phenomenal, my fiancee smelled it as soon as I opened it and she was sitting on the couch about 15 feet away, I kid you not. Secondly, it went down extremely smooth without any residual bitterness. My fiancee even enjoyed a sip or two and she RARELY drinks beer at all. The sweetness is up-front for sure but it's not fake feeling. It tastes like the natural sweetness of a strawberry picked right in season. It doesn't taste like sugar was just dumped in. The finish on this was amazing as well, it left no aftertaste at all, very clear, very tidy.

Serving Type - 18.2 oz bottle

Appearance - Dark tan/yellow, looks much like a ipa. Creamy,foamy 1 inch head and lots of sticky lacing.

Smell - Huge strawberry aroma. A faint bready,pale malt smell near the finish.

Taste - Bitter strawberry flavor. Carbinated and clean tasting. Theres a malt backbone thats masked under the featured flavor. Also a yeasty sugar flavor added. No alcohol comes out, and no hops either.

Mouthfeel - First few drinks its a little bitter and sweet until mouth adjusts. Tounge gets strawberries and slight malts. Palate gets the same with a pale malt finish. Aftertaste is sweet strawberry and pale malty.

Overall - Good, easy to enjoy and a nice change of pace from a regular beer. Its really clean and smooth and low alcohol makes it easy to drink. Not quite as tasty as the other sammy smith fruit beers but still enjoyable.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with pink highlights. It had a small, off-white head of bubbly foam that left little to no lacing on the glass.

S - It smelled of strawberry. Like some fake strawberry juice.

T - It tasted of sweet strawberry. Really that's it. It's not a great strawberry flavor like a fresh strawberry.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay ale. I liked the apricot ale much better.

A. Peachy caramel with pretty nice head. Looks more like wine

S. Holy strawberry Batman! Reminds me of a strawberry faygo. With a hint of honey

T. Strawberries! No malt or hops. Not my favorite. Tastes more like a sweet wine..

M. Fairly fizzy,acidic

O. This "beer" was tastey but didn't quite hit the spot..maybe if it were a higher proof..If I was to get more,I would find a way to cook with it
