Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Cloudy peach/pink pour. Thin white head leaves a scant ring of lacing.

S: Strawberry and fruit. Sweet and again... ripe strawberries.

T/F: Strawberry juice and light beer.... mostly fruit juice. Some wheat character. Sweet but not syrupy... crisp and refreshing. Medium to light in body. Well carbonated. Finish is strawberry juice and fruit.

O: This is what it's advertised to be... a refreshing strawberry forward beer. Pleasing... simple... tasty... not one I'll drink regularly but quite delicious for all that.

Well I gave it my best shot and consumed this one on a scorching hot summery evening, and just can't get past the Alcopoppiness of it I'm afraid.

It looks nice and refreshing in a camp strawberry cocktail sort of way, but it really does just taste like a lightly carbonated juice drink.

Not a lot more to be said really, fairly low on the Bujon's boof ratings, the Cherry Kreik is a better option.

Beer #750

Magenta in color. Pink head
Sweet candy strawberry. Sugar
Same as smell. Tastes like those strawberry candies with the syrup inside them that appear around Christmas time. Feel is syrupy but carbonated enough to get through it is made a black and tan of this and the left hand wake up dead. Made it better.

Out of the bottle poured a cloudy ruby with a pink frothy head. I got intense aromas of strawberry yogurt candy (campino), along with hints of cherry and orange peel. Belgian wit backbone was harder to pick up with the fruit juice playing a dominant role in the palate. Light and refreshing like a shandy/radler-style beer. Won't be everyones taste but I suspect this would work well with a chocolate-based dessert, or mixed green salad.

Pours a reddish color no clarity, with a pinkish head.

N: yeast, biscuits, strawberries, and sugar.

Taste: yeast, biscuits, strawberries, sugar, and fruity.

Mouthfeel is coating, slightly carbonated, and medium body.

It reminds me of a Lindemans, It is too sweet for me to finish, gave it to my roommate.
