750ml bottle, shared at a tasting and reviewed from notes.

A: Clear, deep purple-brown body under an inch of off-white head. Good retention, great lace. Lovely.

S: Rich, sweet strawberry and not much else. Incredibly authentic, fresh, and intense.

T: Sweet, candied strawberry up front, with some tart rhubarb adding further complexity and intensity toward the end. Amazing, and infinitely more delicious than any strawberry beer I've ever had - including the sublime Allagash Avance.

M: Lively, frothy medium body. A little sticky, but good.

O: All other strawberry beers I've had have failed utterly to convey the sweet, juicy delight of a fresh strawberry. Most have been dull messes, others have survived by making the strawberry an afterthought in an otherwise good beer (e.g. Avance, Oudbeitje). Leave it to New Glarus to make a fruit beer that perfectly captures the essence of the fruit in question.

Cheers!

Thanks to Steve for this extra

Served at 45-50 degrees into a snifter

A - Appearance was a little weird with this one, almost a mix between reddish and light brown/copper color with a 1 inch creamy off white foam head.

S - The smell was awesome on this beer. Huge notes of fresh strawberries and strawberry rhubarb

T - Fresh strawberries, nothing artificial coming from the taste with bread and sugary notes on the finish. The overall taste is definitely of liquid strawberry rhubarb pie

M - Light bodied beer for sure with creamy notes. Carb is medium for this beer and definitely stays smooth through the finish

O - Overall, I am somewhat new to this style but the naturalness of the flavors really caught me by surprise. This was refreshing and definitely a treat. Will be looking for more fruit beers from NG in the future
