750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy light brown with a one-finger head that lingers quite a while
S: Strawberry & rhubarb with a light caramel malt backbone
T: Strawberry primarily with rhubarb taking a strong secondary note with caramel/malt in the background. Sweet from the freshness of the fruit, but not overly so and backed by refreshing acidity from the rhubarb
M: Very smooth, somewhat light, sweetness balanced by acidity with a fairly long finish. Tasty across the initial attack/midpalate and finish
O: Another winner from New Glarus. Follow the advice on the bottle and drink a bit colder than cellar temp. IMO it would creep closer to 5s if the rhubarb & its acidity were closer to the intensity of the strawberry though still fantastic and no complaints as is

750ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a murky golden brown color with a small fizzy off-white head that eventually disappears completely, leaving just some bubbles shooting to the top

S- exactly as described, it smells like a fresh strawberry pie, plenty of fresh strawberries, slight rhubarb tartness, even picking up a bit of malty flaky pie crust aroma. The strawberry doesn't smell artificial either, like with most fruit ales, pretty much spot on

T- immediately notice the contrast of sweet and tart, with the sweetness of strawberry and tartness of rhubarb. The strawberry sweetness is reminiscent of the syrup of a strawberry pie, or fresh strawberry jam. The finish continues sweet, with more strawberry on a slightly dry linger

M- medium viscous body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a sweet finish that coats the mouth

O- a fruit beer that is true to it's description, it's pretty sweet and best shared, but a nice switch up from the usually mundane world of fruit beers
