Pours a cloudy light red/straw color, minimal head. Has a nice creamy strawberry aroma. Not exactly a cream ale base, is a bit funky and sour, strawberry flavor is a bit artificial tasting. Carbonation is good. Overall, not my favorite.

Nice fluffy mouthfeel with a opaque peach color. Fruity taste similar to strawberry sherbet definitely has a creamy feel to it. Great balance of flavors here would recommend if you like fruity ales

Picked it up @parkerpieco for dessert after one of the best pies of my life. My bride loved it but I found it unduly sour devoid of any sweetness despite the teasing aroma.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy pinkish-orange color with a finger of light pink head. The head hangs around for a while before settling into a film. Leaves a few splotches of lace as it dissipates.

The aroma brings notes of sweet bread, corn, and strawberries.

The taste is very grainy, with notes of wheat bread and pound cake. The strawberry flavor is sweet and lightly tart, finished off by a subtle kiss of piney hops.

The feel is medium-light bodied with a ton of carbonation. Very crisp and exceptionally dry.

Overall, a pretty solid and tasty cream ale that comes exactly as advertised.

This one pours a murky pink-ish color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like very strongly of sweet corn, with very light strawberry, and some vanilla.

I've heard this current batch out now is not quite as good as some previous ones. I haven't had previous batches, but I can definitely say this isn't super great. The strawberry is pretty light, and this feels a tiny bit muddled, with a very strong corn flavor to it. It's pretty creamy tasting, which is nice, though.

This is light bodied, crisp and pretty clean, with a good level of carbonation.

I expected quite a bit more out of this- this wasn't all that nice for me.
