Appearance: This poured a light orange color and looked cloudy. Mostly due to the sediment that was floating around from the ingredients. It had a really thin white head, and the lacing was even thinner. The lacing did stick around though.

Smell: This had a really sweet and fruity smell to it. And I could definitely sense the strawberry smell.

Taste: It was a very refreshing beer, especially on a hot day like this. It had a good strawberry taste to it and was also very tarty.

Mouthfeel: It had nice, crisp carbonation, and a light body.

Overall: Let me start off by saying that this was my first ‘Fruit Beer.’ So I have nothing to compare this to. But, as it stands, it was a good beer. A real smooth and thirst-quenching brew. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that I feel that they used mostly artificial flavoring to give it that strawberry taste. As for the aftermath, it left a tarty aftertaste.
