I left the beer on the fruit in secondary for 30 days.
I sampled this beer last night. First impressions were favorable. Carbonation was good. The appearance was excellent. The beer was clear with a subtle reddish tint from the strawberries. The taste was much better than anticipated. Strawberry was certainly in the forefront, but not overpowering. There was some sweetness after the fruit, but the carbonation kept it from being cloying. Clean finish. I am going to give this another month of bottle conditioning before I do a side by side comparison of the real fruit vs. flavor extract version of this batch. I have some Tweason'Ale still, so I might do a comparison of all three beers.
All in all I am pleased with how this has turned out. I have not had much luck with GF fruit beers in the past. This is the best one yet. While it is not a exact clone of DFH's Tweason'Ale, it certainly shares the major similarities and the recipe is wide open for interpretations and modifications.
Good luck on brewing yours. I would love to hear how it turns out!
