A: Pours a hazy to cloud light straw yellow with some pinkish hints and moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger and a half tall sudsy to foamy slightly pinkish head that reduces to a medium sized thick cap towards the center of the glass and a thin film covering the remainder of the surface with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are moderate aromas of naturally fresh ripe strawberry over the top of slightly lighter aromas of wheat and some lighter hints of citrus/tangerine and light floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of wheat with some hints of lemon citrus. That is followed by moderate flavors of fresh ripe strawberries and some light notes of citrus/tangerine and floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness which fades rather quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin.

O: Overall I found this beer to be refreshing and thirst quenching. There is a nice aroma and flavor of naturally ripe strawberries (no artificial hints like I often find in beers with strawberry). The only knock I have on this beer is that it is slightly thin in the body but it is definitely easy to drink and sessionable.

i can see the appeal here, but this one wasnt really for me. a little too much sweetness from the berry gives it an artificial flavor in some respects, like a strawberry candy, and although the flavor isnt fake, the sugar content makes it seems that way. hazy white blonde beer, looks good with an inch of white head on it and just a light washed out pink tint. the nose is all fruit, and the yeast is a little weird in the taste, winey and maybe like it was fermented a few degrees warmer than desirable. the fruit flavor is intense, all the way though it, almost at the expense of it tasting like beer at all, although the slightly tannic wheat reminds me that it is. on a hot summer day i see this being attractive to those who prefer flavored ales and the less hoppy session type of beers. the sugar limits me to one glass, but i get what they were going for here, and this its well done on those grounds.
