Just got this bottle today from bman_85, thanks muchly!

A: Pours a cloudy dark red. Very tall, very frothy reddish-tan head. Very fine bubbles gives it a super dense appearance. Top-notch head retention. Lots of thick spiderweb lacing everywhere.

S: I'm not sure how I expected anything else, but well, it smells like strawberry rhubarb. Bright, bold sweet strawberries and a tart rhubarb underneath to balance it out. Crisp and refreshing aroma, a joy to take in. Basically tastes like strawberry jam at points.

T: Welp, pretty much exactly like the aroma indicates. There is lightly tart rhubarb initially and then a wave of sweet strawberries kicks in and balances it out. Perfectly, I might add. Great combination of tart and sweet. Lingering strawberry flavor in the aftertaste that is just wonderful. I half expect to need to pick strawberry seeds out of my teeth after each sip, it's that good.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and crisp. Refreshing. Feels way more robust than just 4%.

O: Wow, another fantastic fruit beer by New Glarus. I don't even like rhubarb and I'm not particularly a fan of strawberries for that matter. But the combination is stellar. Smooth, refreshing mouthfeel leads to great drinkability. Great balance of tart and sweet only makes it drink even better. Top, top, TOP tier fruit beer. The only competition I've ever had is other NG fruit beers (big surprise, I'm sure). Obviously I can't give it top marks for complexity or something like that but it is a perfect example of the style.

Aroma if strawberry jam, candy sugar, jolly rancher. Taste jammy sweet strawberries, slight tartness. A little too sweet for my taste.

Really didn't know what to expect in this. My first try of any NG beers. Visually not super appealing with the murky brown tinted red color. Great smell on this, fresh strawberry and red fruit. Taste was fine, I would've been more on board if it had some tartness going on. Rather it left me thinking strawberry jam.
