Bottle:

A successful fruited lager with surprisingly genuine fruity flavour.

Drank it from the bottle so not sure about its appearance, light strawberry jam aroma. Nice strawberry flavor to it, with a slight processed taste to it like a strawberry compote, faintly tart with not too much sweetness to the berry flavor either. Decent malt body that gives adds mild biscuty sweetness with hints of wheat to it that gives me a slight strawberry shortcake impression. Very faint hint of hops on the back-end almost not even noticeable with a ghostly impression of spices like cinnamon and pepper. Light bodied with a higher then average amount of carbonation to it.

I love summertime with a stash of breakfast beers. Light, fruity. Low alcohol. Easy all day drinking. Strawberry flavor is not too sweet. A good poolside beer.

Pours a pale wheat chaff color. Aroma of strawberry. Tastes of natural strawberry without the sweetness. No detectable hops. Mouthfeel is light and fresh. My favorite strawberry-centric beer. I usually guzzle this from an ice chilled bottle.

Nostalgia. While living in New Orleans for 2 years I enjoyed this light spring lager. Usually you'd expect sweetness from a fruit, especially a strawberry picked late harvest, but this early heat wave pounder has a perfect balance of floral fruit character and a dry crisp finish. A 90% crystal clear, tight bubbles, decent lacing, shortcake, bubblegum, taffy, ripe strawberries, flowers, light cracker, wee bit tart, low bite, subtle hopping, and quite inviting to slam.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour. A finger of fizzy white head. Falls fast... better than expected lacing.

S: Strawberry puree... fruity and sweet. Mild grains.

T/F: Light toasted malts... more 'beer' than expected. Strong strawberry flavor... light hopping for bitterness. Not overly sweet which is a good thing. Simple... crisp/refreshing. Ample carbonation.

O: If you want a light lager with some strawberry flavor then this will be right up your alley. Its saving grace is that it's not too sweet. Interesting to try once... would be hard pressed to revisit.
