Not much here to write about. However, it's not as bad as some of the reviews. Leah didn't like it, but I didn't think it was too bad. Very drinkable I think!

Received from dberger624 in a great trade... Pours orange with a good foamy white head... pale malt and a little buttery note... strawberry essence is present, but not overly done... Not bad, but a little generic. Thanks again Dan!

Pours a dark orange with a minimal head.

Smells heavily of various fruits, I get pumpkins, figs, and various herbs.

Quite subtle and drinkable. Various sweet and foresty flavors in the background, but initially there is not much to this. Carbonation is medium, with a light and crisp body.

I found this to be mediocre, but it's quite unique. I'm not at all surprised that two of the most recent reviews include a 1.44 and a 4.72. I fall somewhere inbetween, but see how people could reach either conclusion.

LOOK: Pours Hazy light orange,
TASTE: Blah. Not too pasty.

I am amazed that with all the refined palates reviewing this beer no one in the first couple pages that I read mentioned the big Sarsaparilla note up front. It's root beer, folks. I love this brewery, but this is a non-starter for me. A&W does it better.

This wasn't really good or really bad...it just kind of was. Pretty standard wheat beer that really lacked in strawberry flavor. It poured a reddish orange kind of color and had a thin head that disappeared quickly. No matter how much I sniffed and sipped, I really couldn't pick up any strawberry at all. It was just a competent wheat beer that wasn't particularly spectacular. The feel was pretty thin and watery. Easy to drink but not what I was hoping for. It's not the worst thing I've drank, but I wouldn't go out of my way to drink it again.

Wheat beers are my favorite but t this just missed the mark. Would not drink again. It had a slight sour taste.
