750ml purchased in July in Madison, WI. Shared over this past weekend with a few friends.

A- Murky pink and red infused pour to a snifter with plenty of things in solution providing haze. A white head rises up to one finger with a frothy texture falling to a ring and big bubbly islands. Pretty good retention and lacing ends up mostly spotty but plentiful.

S- Strawberry. Strawberry. Strawberry. A blast of fresh picked berries rises out of the glass with the feel of jam and fresh berries. I don't really know the smell of rhubarb but beyond the berries is a classic sweet syrup aroma found in all of these NG beers.

T- Fresh strawberries mixed with a tastefully sweet strawberry jam with a hint of tartness which must carry in from the massive amount of fruits. Rhubarb a bit for me but it blends in well with the strawberries.

MF- Fairly light bodied with a certain thickness from the fruit long chain sugars left unfermented. Slightly oily with medium carbonation. Smooth foamy, puffy consistency and a mildly tart finish.

I wish I had more words to say besides strawberry but that describes it very well. Once again, New Glarus captures a fruit flavor better than anyone else.

Pours a slightly murky brown with some red hues and a brownish off white head. Smell is big time fresh strawberries and some tart rhubarb. Flavor follows with up front sweet strawberry followed by a tinge of malts and a tad of sour rhubarb to finish. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation makes this super easy to put down the gullet. I was worried I wouldn't like this as other strawberry drinks have not been up my alley. But as usual New Glarus hit it on the nose with another fruit beer. Very nicely done. This was a hit all around.

750 ml bottle

Pours a burnt orange color with a slight haze. A prominent beige head with a bit of stickiness. Aromas of jammy strawberries are strongest. A little of that distinct rhubarb aroma if you look for it. Taste is fruity for sure. Strawberry (fruity, a bit seedy and fresh) with a bit of astringent sour rhubarb noted too. Light bodied with medium to slightly high carbonation. A bit of tartness to balance the upfront sweetness. Overall a refreshing easy to drink tasty beer. Yet to have anything but a super fruit beer from New Glarus. Good dessert beer/strawberry rhubarb torte-like

Poured from a waxed 750 ml bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep copper amber with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head that slowly recedes into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very fruity and jammy aroma with lots of strawberry rhubarb esters. Literally smells like a mix of fresh squeezed strawberry juice and rhubarb pie with lots of fruit scents upfront. Fairly jam like scent as well. Light hints of apple and cherry in the mix. Fruit aroma is sweet and fairly tart. Subtle pale malt presence with a hint of biscuit and yeast. Aroma is fairly straight forward but very good.

Taste: As good and fruity as it smells, huge taste of strawberries throughout. Strawberry fruit juice and pie like rhubarb flavors are the dominant notes. Fruit flavor is sweet but not excessively syrupy. Nicely tart with a decent bitter balance. Jam like notes with some sugar. Also some subtle fruit notes of cherry and apple behind the strawberry. Background notes of soft pale malt with some biscuit and yeast. A very good fruit beer taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet, creamy, and somewhat syrupy. Very juicy and smooth.

Overall: Another great fruit beer from New Glarus. Great strawberry fruit flavor with a good balance of sweetness and tartness.
