Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely murky brown hue with a layer of frothy ivory foam atop. Kind of mysterious -- though I'm not sure whether in a good or bad way. Definitely odd-looking for the style.

Smell: giant strawberry aroma that I've never seen achieved by other strawberry beers. The rhubarb doesn't pop, but there is a dash of tartness that may be due to it. I'm extremely impressed.

Taste: a bit malty with a giant strawberry flavor atop. A great strawberry flavor is so hard to achieve -- other fruits often work well, but I've never had a truly satisfying strawberry beer. New Glarus really know what they are doing here.

Mouthfeel: light body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess. Not bad.

Overall: massively drinkable and tasty, I've never had a strawberry beer that was this successful. Wonderful stuff.

Beautiful, deep reddish brown color with a medium sized head that retains well. Smells of freshly squeezed strawberries, honey, sweet cream and tart fruits. Tastes of sweet strawberries, tart fruit comes through at the back of the palate and it balances out the sweetness well. Pretty rich and full bodied for such a low alcohol brew, but it works well. Just a damn good beer overall. Sweetness is matched by the tartness of the rhubarb and the light alcohol is matched by a full, creamy body with a crisp finish. Probably my favorite beer.
