Strawberry Beards Forever by Holy City Brewing is a strawberry-infused Berliner Weisse and was judged as a Fruit Beer (BJCP sub-style 29A). It poured pink and cloudy into the glass, with a fizzy white head with modest retention.

The aroma featured intense berry and more mild sour and caramel notes. The flavor profile was dominated by strawberry jam-like and lactic sour notes up front and high fizzy carbonation kept the palate lively throughout. There was a mild sour finish at the end.

Overall this light-bodied, low alcohol and well-balanced beer was highly drinkable especially on a warm spring or summer afternoon.  It is a worthy American addition to the Berliner Weisse family.
