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.

From the bottle, it pours a clear reddish pinkr with a small head. Fruit, mostly strawberry, possibly with some cherry, in the nose. Sweet fruit, some strawberries, in the mouth.

This is hardly even beer but damn if it isn't tasty. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys fruity beer, it captures a more authentic strawberry flavor than most other beers I've had. Body is a deep pink, nearly red, with a thin, pale pink head. Smells like strawberry jam, sweet and heavy on the ripe stawberry scents. Taste is similarly delicious, like strawberry puree. Very sweet but slighly tart also. There's not much typical beer flavor here. If I really dissect it, I get a little hint of Belgian yeast and grain flavors, but it's almost just liquefied strawberry. Feel is medium, somewhat low carbonation, bordering on syrupy. I think I would prefer if it was a little lighter and fizzier, it seems it would complement the flavor better. A really delicious, super fruity beer that I would suggest anyone who likes strawberries try out.

Pours a beautiful watermelon blush red with a creamy, cool 3 finger head that stays awhile. 95% opacity.

Smells like freshly diced strawberries and a dash of Splenda. There's a certain alcopop or wine cooler vibe to it here, but most of that gets washed out with some genuine strawberry.

Very nice strawberry sweetness up front with remnants of witbier characteristics - some grainy malts, a tiny bit of clashing coriander, and a dash of lime salt. It ends on bitter strawberry tops.

Feel clings and sticks to the palate like batter and dries politely while buzzing with carbonation and leaving a wet finish.

I'd gladly have this again. Borders on alcopop , but sometimes that's fun too.

On tap at the Brew & Meatball Company on 04/28/16.

Pours a cloudy pink with a thin white head. Bubbly and effervescent. Distinct strawberry aroma with faint grain. Flavor is dominated by sweet strawberry. Reminiscent of champagne with ripe strawberries added. A very sweet dessert beer.
