Picked up in a growler 5 days ago. Still nice and carbonated as it was filled to the top.

Pours a cloudy light gold. Nice white head.

Smells like strawberries.

Tastes like cap'n crunch berries. A bit overwhelming. Almost tastes like lactose and strawberry icecream.

Feels OK but can't take much of the berries.

Sample at the Pittsburgh location. Hazy yellow/gold color with a thin white head with no retention. Very little lacing too. The aroma is akin to Frankenberry cereal. Light-bodied and sugary sweet with strawberry being the only flavor. The finish is short and sweet. This is a one-trick pony from beginning to end.

It is a murky golden color with a slight lacing. There is a nice light berry sweetness in the nose. The strawberry is up front in the taste, but then it trails into a dry nothingness. The carbonation is crisp and it finishes clean, but it leaves me with a strange impression of the beer. It has a nice aroma and it starts nice, but then it disappears on me.

Appearance: Cloudy golden white vibrant head even webbed lacing. Aroma: Musty strawberry, wheated malt sweetness clean and frutity at the same time if that makes sense. Taste: Eighty four pounds of strawberries are added to the boil bringing out a syrupy strawberry flavor with the mixture of the wheat brings a gag reflection on for me. Mouthfeel: Sharply carbonated medium-light body. Drinkability: Not a fruit beer type of guy, but this ones not as bad as others I've tried save it for dessert it's really sweet.
