The reddish amber color was conventional looking, but the pink tinged foam in the head was definitely not. The aroma was dominated by a tart cherry smell. There were some hops backing the smell. The taste was a bit sour but lacked much else. It certainly was not anything like an IPA at all. The mouthfeel was like sugar water. Aftertaste was pleasant, but very faint. Drinkable to me, but probably not for everyone.

Canned February 27th 2020.

Pours a clear red with pinkish foam, good head of foam, good lacing.

The smell I get is like a mix of strawberries and lime. Smells more tart than sweet but the tartness is mild. Hence the name.

It's a good taster. Fruity I do get what tastes like strawberry, the tartness is lime like. The level of tartness...anyone can handle.

High end of light bodied, I am enjoying this brew.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, pinkish orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of strawberry, guava and lemon. Tart tasting with sweet guava and strawberry.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear pink/golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Falls fast with solid lacing.

S: Strawberry jam and lemon citrus.

T.F: Similar to the smell. Sweet strawberry... modestly tart lemon. Jam and berry... fruity. Light body with effervescent carbonation. Easy drinking. More strawberry to finish.

O: Kind of a sweet/tart strawberry beer. Goes down easy... good pool/lawn mowing beer. Not bad but nothing all that special either.

Pours a reddish clean color, with no head. Aroma is very sweet and sugary. Flavor is sweet sugary, lots of strawberry notes, but not overdone and not bad. Good body and feel. Overall, some nice flavors, none of which are too much.

Love the fact that Sierra took a chance on this one ! I also think the label is brilliant. Its slightly "sour ". This is what got my wifes attention. She is not a die hard "sour" fan, but a "slightly sour" fan , is a whole new ball game !
Beer is tasty. Love the color. As this beer sat , after cracking it open and pouring it in to a glass, the fruitiness was more prominent. This is a solid sipper ! Might be a nice intro beer for those who are on the seltzer band wagon. The beer matches the claims on the label.
