look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

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.

Thanks to Cam for sharing another slice of New Glarus fruit goodness. Reviewed from notes.

Pour is hazy dull red with an off-white head. Good retention with some lace left.

Smell, as expected, pure strawberry jam and fruit snacks. Sugary bread and poundcake come to mind. Sweet fruitiness all the way.

Like the smell, as expected, straight up authentic strawberry, pretty sweet with very light tartness. Some leafy/seed flavors, shortcake, general fruity jam. Nice but maybe overly simplistic, not sure how much the rhubarb contributed.

Great body and flavor for the ABV. ... As expected.

Very good and authentic, but a little more cloying and not as drinkable as their other fruit 750s. A small pour of this one is best I think. Still probably the best (only?) straight-up, non-sour strawberry ale around.

4.21/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: a deep dark earthy red color, almost a leathery brown. half a finger of an off white head with decent retention and a sticky lacing all along the sides. completely hazy and opaque.

Smell: fresh strawberry preservatives. herbaceous rhubarb aroma. some tart fruit. end is full of sweet graham cracker like pie crust. some strawberry candy towards the end

Taste: opens up with a strawberry candy and fresh strawberry preservatives. graham crack pie crust. some slightly tart flavors come through along with rhubarb and more herbaceous character.

Mouthfeel: very sweet but enough tartness to balance it out. pretty juicy and refreshing. medium body.

Overall: another killer fruit beer from new glarus. This one works out well with both the tartness and rhubarb to balance out the super sweet strawberry candy like flavors.
