10/12/2010: Not sure why fruit flavored beers are so frowned upon in the beer geek world, yet lambics are not? Never really understood that, but regardless I am secure enough in my sexuality to say that I like a good fruit flavored beer every once in awhile. That being said sometimes breweries over do the fruit flavors.

The nose instantly reminds me of angel food cake, that marshmallowy/sugary/vanilla type smell you get from the cake. They got the smell right on the mark. The flavor is great; obviously strawberries, angel food cake, vanilla, some lactic action going on as well. All the flavors play very well together, no one here is looking for attention which makes for a great blend of flavors. Mouthfeel and carbonation are both right in the middle. Very well done! Just enough strawberry flavor without over doing it.

Picture of the day: At least they are honest.
