The beer was poured into a snifter and appeared a cloudy brown color with a reddish tint. There was not much of a head on this beer, but there really is not supposed to be. The highlight of this beer seems to be the aroma as it smells much like homemade strawberry jam. If I could not see it, I might not know it was beer. On the initial taste, one gets an incredible amount of sweetness like strawberry jam. I am told that the tartness in the background is the rhubarb. To be honest, I do not know what a rhubarb tastes like. So in regard to the rhubarb, I am just going by the word of others. The sweetness of the strawberry fades as the tastes continues from sweetness to a more seedy berry taste. It makes me curious as to whether the aroma's impact on the initial was exaggerated. The sweetness continues into the aftertaste and is allowed to linger because of the thickness of the beer. The fruit dominates the taste in this beer. I would not say it is better than Belgian Red of Serendipity, but it is another strong effort by New Glarus.

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.
