Default Which category for my beer?

I'm planning to enter my latest strawberry blonde for competition, but I'm not sure which category to enter it under. 6B Blonde Ale or 20A Fruit Beer. Naturally the base style fits snugly into 6B, but it's got a pretty obvious strawberry aroma, and just a hint of strawberry flavor to accent the beer. Not really being a competition brewer I just don't know if the strawberry accent would be considered "out of style" if I entered it into the base style category or not. I suppose one option would be to just enter it in both categories.


So any experienced competition folks, please let me know what you think.

This would need to be in the fruit category. If put into the blonde category you would not get a very good score due to the strawberry flavor and aroma.

I would put it into category 20.
