Lost Coast is always coming out with fruit wheat beers. This one, on tap at the Brewpub in Eureka, CA, came a very red strawberry color as befits its name and very cloudy as you would expect from a wheat. Nose of very much strawberry. Mouthfeel was brisk and flavor was strawberry, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor was quite sweet and finish was almost cloying. It was a decent fruit beer but a little too strong with the strawberry flavor for me, but if you like that particular berry than you will probably like this. I had a Cherry Lager first, and much preferred that, so it might have somewhat been the comparison.

Clearish pink colour with a small white head. Good lacing.

Artificial strawberry aroma with plenty of sweetness. Reminiscent of Kool-Aid.

Sweet, sugary and full of artificial strawberry flavour. Kool-Aid is the only way to describe this.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

I don’t know why you would make this. Artificial as anything with lots of sugar. Just bad.
