Appearance: Cloudy pale amber color, large frothy long-lasting white head, frothy rings of lacing
Aroma: Strawberry, no getting around it. Nothing else seems to matter
Taste/flavor: Initially tart, startlingly so. It really gets one's attention. Everything else seems to recede into the background
Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation, smooth finish
Overall: Not much experience with this style. That having been said, I like it far more and find it superior to Shiner Strawberry Blonde, if only because of its tartness

This beer pours a super hazy pinkish orange color that reminds me of ruby red grapefruit juice. There is a huge, frothy bright white head that has excellent retention for the style, eventually fading to a rocky half finger cap. There is tons of chunks of foamy lacing left behind.

Smell is very reminiscent of strawberry crystal light. It is basically juicy strawberry and tart lemon. Simple but very nice.

Taste is the same. The fruity strawberry hits the palate first, but that is swept aside by tart lemon mid sip and into the finish.

Feel is a little too light, but nicely crisp. Super drinkable. I wish it was a touch more carbonated. 5/10 on the pucker scale.

Overall a very good beer and one of the best I've had from Saranac. I will definitely be picking this up frequently over the summer. $8.99 per 6pk to boot.
