Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is fairly clear with a slight murky haze and is light reddish-brown in color. It sports a nice fluffy off-white head that has good retention given the acidity. It also has a bright, fruity nose with notes of white wine and strawberry preserves.

The beer has a nice tart flavor with plenty of sweetness to balance it out.
The high carbonation complements the flavor well. The sweetness is in the front of the palate and is all fruit, primarily berry flavors. At mid-palate, the acidity creeps in and brings with it some wine-like flavors and tannins, which pinch your cheeks and dry out your mouth a bit. The fruity sweetness stays on the palate the entire time and lingers a bit on the finish.

Overall, another marvelous fruit beer from New Glarus. I don't think this one is as good as Raspberry Tart or Wisconsin Belgian Red. The flavor is milder than those other two beers, but it's still highly enjoyable.

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.
