Like some of the other reviews... I really wanted to like this beer. Smells more like raspberries but the taste is more on the strawberry side. There is this very carbonated tart aftertaste that made me said no. Kind of a mmmm.... ehh? :)

In the bottle. Strong strawberry smell. Unremarkable flavor.

12oz bottle into Nonic Pint
No noticeable date
Clear gold with quickly fizzling head
Straight strawberry jam, if I'd close my eyes I'll have no clue this is a beer
Strawberry up front and on the follow, with a grainy & yeasty finish
Light bodied and overly carbonated
Overall not my cup of tea

Clear gold color with noticeable carbonation. Slight white collar that disappears quickly. Nice strawberry aroma over the slight malt aroma. Neutral beery taste with a strawberry over vanilla aftertaste. I like it.

I really wanted to like this beer, but it just doesn’t fit its intention. It tastes very little like real strawberry and more like artificial raspberries. I’m guessing that despite using actual Poteet strawberries, the real flavor is subtle, so they decided to jazz it up with something artificial.

As a Native Texan, I’m quite saddened to say that Abita’s Strawberry Lager is much more authentic tasting to me.

Twist-off bottle.

Summer seasonal. 4.3% ABV.

Artificial fruit runs rampant through this borderline medicinal brew. Sticky sweet.

Drinks like an alcopop, but it's not bad if you don't hold it to the basic standard of tasting like a beer. Not something I'd revisit, but it's a pretty lackluster fruited ale rife with nothing but artificial flavour.

D+ (2.34) / NOT RECOMMENDED
