12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip.

A: Very pale straw color with pinkish-peach tones. Little head, no lace.

S: At first this smells very berry-ish, but given time to breathe it gives way to a decent malty presence.

T: The berry flavor is okay. Not overwhelming or artificial.The malt profle is light and slightly sweet with only the most vague bitter at the end.

M: Very, very drying. Highly carbonated and thin. Not very reminiscent of beer.

D: Overall okay and inoffensive, but not great.

Bottle into a pint. No bottle/expire date.

a Thin off-yellow. Translucent. Thick white head during pour. Thick beard of lacing all around the glass during tasting.

s Pronounced yeasty esters of citrus. Wheat cloys at the middle of the nose.

t The yeasty citrus is the main player in this taste rolling from the sides of the tongue to the back almost hitting a sour note with an off citrus. On the tip of the taste the wheat comes through. Slight unripened strawberry bitter settles in the aftertaste.

m Healthy carbonation. Medium body gives the taste a good feel and weight.

o The strawberry accents the yeasty citrus of the beer and blows it out of proportion. Brau has done for wheat citrusy esters what an IPA did for hops. Only for those that want a citrus overload.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a becker glass.

A: Slightly hazy, pale golden color with one finger of diminishing white foam head. lacing remains on the glass.

S: Wheat is distinctly unmodified in the mild nose, with other fresh botanical qualities that are more herbaceous than strawberry. Taken together, the perfume reminds of children's breakfast cereal.

T: Begins dry, with soft grain and mild bright fruit that is enhanced by the metered and appropriate acidity. Flavors tend to vanish rapidly as acidity fades, leaving just a slightly saccharine residue on the palate.

M: Thin viscosity, wet but a bit lifeless on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This is clearly an entry-level beer for drinkers that do not prefer beer. It is criminally inoffensive; in fact, it even understates the strawberry qualities it displays. A brewery that wishes to be taken seriously in the craft market ought to not brew such an apologetic contribution to an already struggling style.

The beer exits the bottle a dark golden color with minimal head. The aroma is strawberry laced with wheat character. On the palate, the wheat contributes texture to coincide with the carbonation. Sweetness and artificial strawberry dominate the flavor. There is a buttery cracker component which lingers afterword and coats the palate. This is not a boldly flavored brew and the strawberry comes across as almost faux and too sweet.
