Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very hazy amber-brown color with a thin off-white head and not much retention or lacing. The nose carries through a bit of strawberry and other berry character plus a bit of light cream. Really sweet. Too much so. The flavor is also supremely sweet and doesn't get enough body, which I was thinking of when I read "milkshake." Some bread and berries plus a touch of cream. Way too sweet and not enough true strawberry character.

A-Pours a dense, hazy reddish-brown hue with no head
S-Strawberries predominate, dark fruit, malty sweetness
T-Similar to the smell- sweet strawberries up front, followed by dark fruits and creamy malt sweetness.
M-The milk sugar and malt body lend to a smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. Mild carbonation rounds out this beer nicely
O- Not your typical fruit beer- lacks the overpowering sugary sweetness you might be expecting. Instead presents with a strong, pleasant fruit aroma and taste with a heavier, syrupy mouthfeel. Not something you can sit and drink four of, but a unique offering that is definitely worth trying.
