This hasn't been added so I thought I would add it, despite my reservations about this brewery.

Pours a cloudy whitish-yellow color with a one-finger head into my glass. It's bright and easy.

Sweet with the unmistakable essence of strawberry on the nose. Light and likely very crisp.

Flavors are somewhat flat, with sweet strawberry essence, wheat and a bit of citrus.

Mouthfeel is middle of the road too. Still clean regardless.

Not a bad attempt here. It's better than the hefeweizen but not by much.

Served the beer from 22oz bottle .

Poured into Tulip Style Glass - Cloudy and Straw colors with light foam. Has a light beer and yeast aroma. Taste is zesty and full of citrus and coriander tones. Has the finish of the strawberry as it warms in the glass. Not sweet just the the slight note of it. Beer really is refreshing cold but will open up with the strawberry aroma when it warms up a little. A solid spring seasonal. Great Brunch Beer.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Poured a hazy faint yellow orange with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a small ring with little to no lacing.

S: A really nice whiff of strawberries and a little floral hops with a touch of sweet malt lingering under everything.

T: Very surprising... not a lot strawberries in the taste... More sweet malt with a grainy grassy hops mixed in. Finish is a little bitter with a hint of strawberries only in the aftertaste.

M: Pretty light bodied with some sharp carbonation that is very lively on the tongue, finish is a little on the dry side.

O: Not a bad beer to say, but not a very good fruit beer, if that was what they were aiming for. If you are looking for strawberry, look elsewhere.

Poured into my Busch Gardens Budweiser Select flute. Looks like a Witbier.. Big delicately bubbly white head, decent retention and some lacing.

Smell is very ordinary, kind of an artificial fruit/vegetable smell.

Taste is pretty average also. Lemon zest and artificial strawberry flavor (when warmed up). Cold it is more a generice fruit/vegetable taste.

Mourfeel is light and crisp Good as a thirst quencher / lawnmower beer for the warm weather.

Not terrible, but nothing special.

22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Never seen this beer before today, and never seen the brand outside of BevMo here in SoCal. Pours a hazed lemon/orange with a thin cap of whitish foam which sticks around moderately.

Nose of strawberry, wheat and yeast with a light funkiness imbued through it all. Strawberry notes are a bit artificial as expected and remind me somewhat of that strawberry milk powder as a kid. Still there's enough balancing factors to keep it from deterring too much.

Taste offers a less prominent berry influence than the nose might suggest. Slightly grainy in taste and with a light coriander spice. Pretty standard on the feel and finish though does come up a bit short as a witbier in that the wheat influence is a bit subdued and the carbonation a bit light. Better than feared after seeing a few reviews but not something I'll be returning to either. Still, likely an older than maybe it should be wit though no date code to be found on bottle.

Strong aroma is almost entirely strawberry. I love strawberries, and I enjoy strawberry beer - but when strawberry overwhelms all of the other aromas, that is a bit much. Pours a clear canary yellow with a fairly thick white head. Flavor is - meh. At least strawberry doesn’t dominate the flavor as it does the bouquet (can one say that in a beer review?), and the malty and hop-woody flavors do outweigh the strawberry, though there is a nice hint of sour citrus, the flavor lacks depth and strength. Texture has decent fizz, but body is lacking. Oh well, back to the drawing board, so to speak.
