Samuel Smith’s Organic Strawberry Fruit Beer

500 mL bottle from Hop City, Atlatna, GA, USA.
Poured into a wine glass. Pour is a strawberry blonde body, well carbonated with a slightly off-white, high head. Retention and lace are very good.
Mild, sweet fruit in the nose. Seems balanced.
Strawberry juice is present in the tastes but it is fairly muted. Definitely the most reserved in terms of fruit of the three Smith’s fruit beers (Cherry and Raspberry being the others). Sweet and sour which finishes quite dry. Malts dominate. Extremely drinkable in the Atlanta summer heat, but for me this is largely a novelty, very ocassional beer. Light, natural and not cloying, all important in a fruit based beer.
Enjoyable but not my favorite of the three Smith’s fruit beers.
