look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

Can't get enough of New Glarus's fruit beers, so I can't thank laymansbeerfan enough; thank you brother! Split with the wife into wine glasses.

A: Darker crimson brown, unfiltered towards the bottom of the 750, well carbonated with plenty of head but no lacing really.

S: Strawberry is upfront and full of life, sweet and fruity. Rhubarb is a bit buried but its tartness shines through lightly. Suggestions of honey, brown sugar, and other sweeter malt characters lie underneath all of the fruitiness.

T: Sweet strawberry dominates with rhubarb pulling in a distant second. Fruity and jammy; preserves/dessert/pie all come to mind. I could be imagining it but there does seem to be a sweeter malt backbone, with ghostly hints of caramel and brown sugar. Fruit-dominated though, for sure.

MF: Good carbonation keeps this from being cloying; lighter medium body.

O: I like strawberry, so this was a win for me. Would have loved a bit more balance from a tart rhubarb character but I'm nit-picking really. Awesome stuff.
