Poured into a tall pils glass. It is a lighter amber color with a dirty 2 finger head. Aroma is very nice with fruity, jammy notes of strawberry and caramel notes. Flavor is similar with a nice sweetness of strawberry jam and cake. I don't it overly sweet, but quite pleasant. Medium feel that is buttery with some softer carbonation. Just an easy drinking enjoyable beer that works well after a meal.

Poured into a mug, not much of a head, if any. Nice maple syrup color to it.

Smells sweet like strawberry, with a creamy or even cake softness.

Tastes like a strawberry cheesecake blended to drink. Quite tastey, though not very beer like.

Smooth, and pretty good if you liek sweet things.

Not much of a sweets person, or veggie beer person but this is nice. Whim purchase that worked out.

This is a true dessert beer....almost to the point where I would expect this would work well to actually cook with...put in a mousse or ice cream. It is a very unique drinking experience. The milk sugar element is very evident, with a biscuity, cookie piece that comes out clearly. Sticky and sweet, with a slightly artificial aftertaste. I write this as I drink, so not sure how I will finish this off. More fruit layers come out as this warms and brings a little bit of a buttery piece too.
