750ml poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clouded murky copper to dirty brown color with white bubbles resting atop. They fade relatively quick but a swirl revives. This brew looks like dirty water.

The smell is pretty darn intense like all NG fruit offerings are. The nose is filled with a complete essence of strawberry jam leaving little to no room for anything else. Candied strawberries coupled with fresh cut strawberries...and then more strawberry.

The taste is jammy and sweet with strawberry jam leading the way so much so that the residual sugar seemingly has a bite to the back of the throat. Then the tartness of the rhubarb comes into focus with a little earthy hop touch to round things out.

This is a medium bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. It falls in line with all the other New Glarus fruit offerings, plenty of fruit and sticky sugars. Yet somehow balanced and not too over the top. I could never see myself drinking more than a half glass of this but it certainly is my wife's jam and she can rock this back like its nothing.

From notes on 1/11/14

Brownish purple in color. Fruity, sour, kind of soapy smell. Nice sweet taste. Tartness from the strawberries, but still sweet. This is good, but the cherry one us better.
