look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 750 ml bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy brownish colored brew with a two finger white fizzy head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a lighter level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma was heaviest of wheat and strawberries. Along with these smells were notes of a yeastiness as well as a little bit of a spice aroma of clove and nutmeg. A tiny bit of banana works its way through the smell as well producing a nice fruity and yeasty wheat smell overall.

Taste –The taste begins wheaty and lightly roasted with a good dose of strawberry sweet upfront. The strawberry grows more intense as the flavor advances with some other spice flavors of clove and nutmeg joining as well. A flavor of yeast soon comes to the tongue producing a more yeast-cake fruity taste, with the combination of flavors at the end leaving a nice lightly toasted wheaty and yeasty strawberry fruity taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was average to slightly above average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the average to slightly above average side. Both were rather nice for keeping it a very easy drinking brew matching well both teh strawberry and wheaty tastes of the brew.

Overall – A nice easy drinking and rather flavorful wheat strawberry beer. A nice one to give a go too, although the price of $10 for a 750 ml may be a bit too much.
