Though I’m biased towards any Louisiana-based spirit, especially one in New Orleans, this is great: it tastes like beer made from strawberries, not beer flavored with strawberries (which is actually the case).
Late April, early May all the liquor stores/ Whole Foods in New Orleans start stocking this stuff. Yeah, partially I love it because it’s a sign of Summer… but mostly because it’s good beer, specifically good lager. Nicely balanced– roughly half beer, half ripe strawberries.
Yeah, you’ll probably get made fun of; it’s good enough to not give a shit.
Say you drink it for the Saints. Or the Bees.
