IMO, flavorings are usually pretty strong so 4 oz would definitely be enough, but with all flavor in general, it comes to personal taste. That's also a key to having a bottle of flavoring - you can add to taste
That said, I do not
believe that the flavor will be the same. Flavorings rarely are - again, that's my opinion.
I have heard that Wicked Pete's Strawberry Blonde is made with flavoring so you might get more of that sweeter flavor vs the tartness from the real berries.
In either case, I'm pretty sure I'd drink your beer.
