Dogfish Head Tweason'ale ....

Tonight I will have a Tweason'ale from Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales.  A seasonal, gluten-free, sorghum-based ale brewed with strawberries and buckwheat honey.  6% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

This beer poured with a thin, white head.  Beer color is an orange-ish amber/copper.  It is very clear.  The aroma is very fruity, with the strawberry standing out.  High on the sweet-meter.  The taste is not as fruity and sweet as the aroma, although the strawberry is definitely in the forefront.  A sweet malt-like character.  There is a definite molasses taste in the background.  Grassy towards the finish.  Effervescent.  A little thin.  The aftertaste is a little metallic.  More than anything, this reminds me of a lighter, fruity summer wheat where the light wheat/yeast quality in the background is replaced with a molasses-like quality.  I usually don't like beers this fruity, but this makes a nice light summer drink.
