Poured into a tulip glass from a750ml bottle.
Pours a murky tawny color with some pinkish hues. There is a medium dense head that grows up to 1 inch and recedes at a moderate pace leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma starts off with some nice fresh strawberry notes. Notes of slight sugary jam are present as well. Light tartness in the nose as well as some earthy notes. The nose is so fresh and very inviting. Not overly sweet. The earthy notes are quite nice in the nose with some mild wild yeast aromas.
Favor starts of with fresh Strawberry juice notes. Perfect balance of fruit sweetness with tartness. It is not overly sweet or overly tart just right down the middle. The sour notes are ever so fain but so delightful. They balance what could be a overly sweet brew. The earthy notes of grain and rhubarb compliment the fruit notes perfectly. Nice notes of jam and preserves get more intense as the brew warms up and the grain and bred notes are more perceived as well. Body is nice and light with great fluffy carbonation and a nice chalky yeasty finish.
What can i say. NG knows their fruit beers. This is delicious. The strawberry notes are very fresh and perfectly balanced.

Pours a cloudy applesauce color with off white head. Smells fantastic, like sweet fresh strawberries with slight hint of rhubarb. Tastes like eating strawberry rhubarb pie, finishing with a creamy vanilla ice cream flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated with such a great sweetness. Surprisingly not tart or sour considering the rhubarb.
Overall excellent beer, one of the best I've ever had. Another excellent example of New Glarus fruit beers.
