4.19/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is fairly clear with a slight murky haze and is light reddish-brown in color. It sports a nice fluffy off-white head that has good retention given the acidity. It also has a bright, fruity nose with notes of white wine and strawberry preserves.

The beer has a nice tart flavor with plenty of sweetness to balance it out.
The high carbonation complements the flavor well. The sweetness is in the front of the palate and is all fruit, primarily berry flavors. At mid-palate, the acidity creeps in and brings with it some wine-like flavors and tannins, which pinch your cheeks and dry out your mouth a bit. The fruity sweetness stays on the palate the entire time and lingers a bit on the finish.

Overall, another marvelous fruit beer from New Glarus. I don't think this one is as good as Raspberry Tart or Wisconsin Belgian Red. The flavor is milder than those other two beers, but it's still highly enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle into a New Glarus champagne flute.

A - A murky orange color. Wasn't really expecting it, but it looks okay... Carbonation is very apparent. Nice lacing and about 1 finger worth of bright white head.

S - Oh my goodness. Ripe strawberries with rhubarb coming in at the end of the smell. Right when I popped the bottles I could smell it!

T - Amazing notes of strawberry. Green apples and other light fruits are present as well. Rhubarb comes in at the end of the sip and makes for a very desirable beer.

M - Very carbonated, like the other New Glarus fruit beers I've had. Quite easy on the palate and very drinkable.

O - Another home-run by New Glarus! I don't think they can do anything wrong with fruit and this beer is up there with the best. Try this if you can!

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a murky, crimson-amber color with a minimal head that quickly settled to a thin film. Not much for lacing is left down the glass.

One of the most aromatic beers I have had in quite some time. I can smell the strawberry from across the room. Sort of the strawberry schnapps aroma I remember from being a teenager. If I really dig my nose into the glass there is a sharp fruitiness that comes from the rhubarb.

Has a very sharp twang without being very acidic. The strawberry and rhubarb, not surprising many in the upper Midwest, is an excellent combination. Good strawberry flavor. Not really surprised that New Glarus was able to capture the essence of strawberry/rhubarb crisp in a bottle. New Glarus are leaps and bounds above everyone else when it comes to fruit beers.

Light body and feels the same as their other excellent fruit beers. I think this one could be a little undercarbonated however. Not much of a complaint though.

I am not the biggest strawberry/rhubarb fan, but this is an astonishing beer. I think they have done the best of the rhubarb beer attempts.

Thanks to jdiddy for breaking this one out. Pours the color and clarity of unpasteurized cider with a loose, cream-colored head that dissipates into an oily slick. Nose is reminiscent of strawberry preserves. Taste consistent with nose; however, the rhubarb cuts the sweetness and keeps the flavor profile from being too cloying. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light) with a light, even carbonation and a slight acidity. Overall, another awesome fruit beer from NG. It's amazing how much flavor is packed into such a low abv brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a reddish-brown color that's cloudy with a reddish-tan frothy head.

Intensely incredible aroma of ripe, fresh strawberries and sweet malt.

The taste begins with a strawberry sweetness that subsides a bit then the tartness appears with a sour finish. Strawberry, green apple, rhubarb, all blend together into a heavenly combination.

the mouthfeel is creamy with initial tingling on the tongue. Light to medium body.

This is another soon-to-be legendary fruit creation from the masters of the style! Way to go New Glarus!

Thanks Steasy66!

Appearance. Pours a murky orangy-brown with a thin off-white head.

Smell. Ripe juicy strawberries and a touch of that NG yeast that always smells a little bit dusty to me.

Taste. Big strawberry and a touch of tart rhubarb when I look for it. That NG yeast flavour is there (like I mentioned before, slightly dusty tasting to me) and a bit of smooth and sweet light malt.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body with fine, below medium carbonation.

Overall. Very nice beer that would be made better if I could get to like the NG yeast flavour.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and strawberry pie aromas. Taste is much the same with strawberry and rhubarb pie flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is quite sweet but tasty and easy to drink.

4.81/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance - An odd dank looking light brown. Quite hazy. Medium tall, white head with good retention.

Smell - Sweet strawberry is most prominent - almost a strawberry jam scent. A little sweet something else - I guess it must be rhubarb. The aroma could pass for a quality baked good.

Taste - Much less sweet than implied by the aroma. Rich natural strawberry flavor with a perfect amount of tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full.

Overall - I'm not sure that, if I didn't know, I'd immediately peg this as beer. It is quite good though and unique among beers I've tried.

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

Appearance - Dark peach in color. Cloudy appearance. Pouring yielded 1/4 finger of head which dissipated quickly.

Smell - Strawberry jam and a hint of rhubarb.

Taste - A rush of strawberry upfront with some tartness from the rhubarb on the back end. It has the perfect amount of sweetness. Big strawberry flavor and finish.

Mouthfeel - Crisp and refreshing with high carbonation.

Overall - This is a great offering from New Glarus. The flavor is very balanced and the amount of carbonation is perfect for the style. Definitely the best strawberry beer I've ever had.

There is plenty of carb in this bottle. Really makes the presentation impressive with the foamy white head. The body has a cloudy light brown color like cooked rhubarb. The smell is tart strawberry. Really inviting. The taste delivers the strawberry flavor like no other beer I've had. The beer finishes with a light tartness that does give the tang of rhubarb. This is like a clean, crisp version of strawberry rhubarb pie. Really delicious fruit beer and easily the best strawberry flavor I've had.

Pours a hazy grapefruit color with minimal head. Leaves a nice ring around the glass.

On the nose is huge fresh strawberries. Strawberry jam. Unreal how fresh it smells. Sour rhubarb. Like a big heaping scoop of strawberry cobbler.

Tastes like a slice of pie. Unreally fresh strawberries. Tart rhubarb. A little bit of bready notes on the finish. Big huge juicy strawberry flavor all the way throughout the beer. Wow. Amazingly fruity and fresh. So good.

Perfect mouthfeel. Light to medium bodied. Not watery at all. Perfectly carbonated. Just enough to keep the flavor alive and prick the tongue.

This beer is perfect for me. Would absolutely drink again and well worth what I traded to get it. Makes me want to make a trip to Wisconsin.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tulip glass from a750ml bottle.

Pours a murky tawny color with some pinkish hues. There is a medium dense head that grows up to 1 inch and recedes at a moderate pace leaving some nice lacing.

Aroma starts off with some nice fresh strawberry notes. Notes of slight sugary jam are present as well. Light tartness in the nose as well as some earthy notes. The nose is so fresh and very inviting. Not overly sweet. The earthy notes are quite nice in the nose with some mild wild yeast aromas.

Favor starts of with fresh Strawberry juice notes. Perfect balance of fruit sweetness with tartness. It is not overly sweet or overly tart just right down the middle. The sour notes are ever so fain but so delightful. They balance what could be a overly sweet brew. The earthy notes of grain and rhubarb compliment the fruit notes perfectly. Nice notes of jam and preserves get more intense as the brew warms up and the grain and bred notes are more perceived as well. Body is nice and light with great fluffy carbonation and a nice chalky yeasty finish.

What can i say. NG knows their fruit beers. This is delicious. The strawberry notes are very fresh and perfectly balanced.

1 pint 9 fl oz green glass (come on, New Glarus!) bottle with waxed-over branded iconic green-and-brass pressure cap and stylish label art acquired in a trade with the very gracious Duff27 (thanks again!) and served into Cantillon stemware in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are sky high given the brewery. Reviewed as a fruit beer. No ABV is listed on the bottle.

Served cold, straight from me fridge, and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a one-finger wide head of restrained off-white colour. Decent creaminess and thickness. Head retention is above average - about 3-4 minutes. Decent even consistent lacing clings to the sides of the glass when I tilt it.

Body colour is a murky copper-tan; sort of hard to place. It's an odd duck. Certainly nontransparent. Translucent. No yeast particles are visible. Somewhat dull.

Overall, it's atypical of the norm, but that's to be expected given the brewery. I'm optimistic, but admittedly the appearance won't be winning any awards. There are no obvious flaws.

Sm: Fresh strawberries; not strawberry preserves, not strawberry extract, not syrup - actual strawberries. Fruity and evocative without ever feeling artificial. I hope the head brewer for Lost Coast is taking notes. Clean barley, brown malts, munich malts. The malts are seamlessly layered and allow the strawberry to dominate elegantly. A detect a touch of tart fruit and wild yeast - hard to determine which yeast; it's certainly not the usual obvious lactobacillus character of most American wild ales. Teasing and inviting. I can't quite recall the scent of rhubarb, but there's certainly a vegetable note of some sort in there; I wouldn't have noticed it explicitly if I tried the beer blind. Overall, it comes down slightly on the sweeter side. Pie filling comes to mind, but it doesn't have the acetic pie crust notes of a beer like, say, Rodenbach. It definitely evokes jam or jelly. It's also quite cidery, which works well here.

No hop profile or alcohol presence is noticeable.

A clean aroma of moderate strength. I can't wait to try it.

T: Oh, wow. Lovely jam/jelly/preserve notes for both strawberry and rhubarb, with delightful pie filling notes and the perfect amount of sweetness, which is itself complemented beautifully by an exquisite tartness. The malt layering is seamless; I can hardly guess which malts were used - clean barley, Belgian pale, Belgian brown? I love how the flavour profile develops, blossoming into the rewarding tartness on the climax. I love the fresh strawberry paired with the vegetable (rhubarb I guess). Lightly acetic. Ripe. A biteen cidery. Light bread crust. Juicy succulent fruit - not just strawberry but subtle cherry and apple as well. The kiss of sourness is so well hidden by the tartness that even opponents of sour beers would likely enjoy this one. Hop presence is near imperceptible; what little I can guess at is just complementary fruity hop character. I can't identify the wild yeast used; I imagine lactobacillus but with how refined and subtle the sourness is here, it could well have lambic yeast as well for all I know.

It's like Jesus is making preserves in my mouth. It's clean and teasing; just a very satisfying taste overall. Quite subtle and complex for its modest 4% ABV. Balance is incredible; this is a gestalt beer with flawless cohesion and superb execution.

Incredible depth of flavour for a 4% fruit beer. High duration of flavour, with a pleasant lingering aftertaste that makes you crave the next sip. Above average intensity of flavour.

Hard to pick a highlight in the flavour profile; I guess the jam notes are what really do it for me, but the tartness is lovely too.

No alcohol is in any way perceptible.

As it warms, I pick up some honey and nectary notes on the open.

Mf: Soft, supple, smooth, wet, quenching, and refreshing. Perfect body and thickness. Fantastic presence on the palate; it's a very welcoming approachable beer. Carbonation is perfect. This'll induce some lip-smacking. Definitely feels carefully custom-tailored to the flavour profile; there's an undoubtable marriage of texture to taste. Incredible execution across the board.

Not oily, harsh, boozy, hot, gushed, or astringent.

Dr: Boy am I glad I greedily kept this bottle for myself. I'll kill the entire bottle with ease, and I'll enjoy every drop of it. Yet another insanely drinkable and endlessly enjoyable fruit beer from New Glarus. I'd recommend this to friends and trading partners, and I'm glad as hell Duff27 included a bottle in my last box. I'd stock up on this stuff if I had the ability to; $10 or so is more than fair for the quality. I could see myself drinking it everyday in the summertime; it's a damn fine brew - and a refreshing one. One of the best beers I've had in a long time.

Another thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head almost nothing, hazy murky brown pink copper color.

Nose is everything, sweet candy, caramel and molasses, nutty, brown sugar and mild spices like lots of pie filling, then tons of fruit, nice strawberry, more of the rhubarb, little generic berry like almost raspberry, more like a jammy cooked fruit.

Taste is quite nice, good strawberry jam, rhubarb bitter and tartness but not a ton, into plenty of sweetness, brown sugar and molasses like, again pie filling, little candy like, mild overall tartness, very little base beer. Big acetic acid bite too, and light grainy bready. Finish is dry and flemmy, more acidic bite, nice lingering cooked jammy strawberry and rhubarb.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little jammy sweet, nice acidic bite and decent carb.

Overall quite nice. Sweet but not overly, and good tartness nice acid level. Ugly ducking with a great beer underneath.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a grayish, brownish, red with s thin half finger head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas pop of jam strawberries and rhubarb, cooked though not fresh fruit. Like taking deep inhaled breathes from the bottom of a pie tin, super fruity.

T - Taste is very, very strawberry, light rhubarb tart flavours, mostly pie filing, natural sweetness not cloy like most new glarus beers, very fruity and easy drinking.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and almost sticky sweet, light carbonation.

O - Overall this beer screams rhubarb and strawberry. The strawberry is so intense here, would like a bit more rhubarb tartness though.

Pours a slightly murky brown with some red hues and a brownish off white head. Smell is big time fresh strawberries and some tart rhubarb. Flavor follows with up front sweet strawberry followed by a tinge of malts and a tad of sour rhubarb to finish. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation makes this super easy to put down the gullet. I was worried I wouldn't like this as other strawberry drinks have not been up my alley. But as usual New Glarus hit it on the nose with another fruit beer. Very nicely done. This was a hit all around.

a very murky opaque copper/brown/orange in color. 2 fingers of head with excellent retention - especially for this style! lots of lacing as well (which is also unusual for the fruit beer style). the aroma of this beer is just heavenly - strawberry jam, a slight tartness, bread crust, strawberries strawberries strawberries. my goodness the balance on this is phenomenal.. you'd think it would be all sweet and tart, but holy crap it's all full on strawberry rhubarb pie.. the subtle tartness of fruity strawberries and a bready pie crust like dryness to follow.. my goodness, am i liking this more than belgian red????
light in body, sweetly refreshing.. tart and fruity.. high carbonation

my goodness, it doesn't get any better than this. i would have loved a pink looking beer, but seriously, when a beer tastes this damn good - who gives a flying fuck?

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. My girlfriend's super excited! 750ml bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a massive, frothy, 3 finger light cream colored head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a clear mahogany rust. Lacing is stringy and spotty with great stick. Great looking brew!

Nose is sweet and aromatic. Strawberry rhubarb pie. Juicy with a ton of fruit puree. Excellent.

Opens sweet strawberry puree and juice. More of the same in the middle with a slight cinnamon sweetness and that signature New Glarus yeast flavor. Ends sweet and syrupy. Aftertaste is more of the same. Simple but enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and carbonated in the mouth and goes down syrupy. Finishes quick and abrasive with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Solid.

This is pretty in line with the rest of New Glarus' fruit offerings. Clean, simple and delicious. I'm glad to have gotten to try this and I hope they keep this in the regular lineup.

Not a fan of sweet beers or fruit unless they are done right, aaand New Glarus does it right yet again!
A: Clear pinkish reddish brown color with a thin white foamy head that quickly dissipates
S: smells like a tart strawberry rhubarb dessert, very fruity on the nose
T: here is where the weakness is, very rich, almost overly so mainly from the tartness which I love and am a fan of only because it reminds me of a nice Belgian sour flanders only lighter in body similar to a cider but with less carbonation, id say medium low, leaves kind of a sour dirty fruit taste in the mouth.
O.A. Perfect appertif beer. great in small quanties, share this with 2 or 3 other people!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Nor sure how to describe the color. Cloudy light brown? Pastel red-tinted tan? Opaque reddish-ocre? What ever color that is, it isn't pretty... Forms a moderate sized, bubbly pink head. Quickly reduces to a light surface coating. Very light lacing.

S: Aroma is tart berries and fruit. Fruity strawberries and raspberries. Vegetal rhubarb. A slight metallic ting.

T: Wow. The taste really shines. Definitely getting both strawberry and rhubarb. Moderate sweetness, but not overpowering. Not as sweet as NG's other fruit-tart beers, but certainly showing some sweetness. Jammy with a light tartness.

M: Medium bodied with lower carbonation gives this one a thin-syrup feel. Mild bitterness, but there is a slight drying astringency on the back end.

O: Yet another successful fruit beer from NG. Easy drinking, fun, and fresh. Not overly complex, but the beer manages to taste just like the name says without any artificial quality to it in the least.

Thanks to Atoneworks. Pours a murky brown with red highlights and a thick fluffy white head that fades quickly. OK lacing. Smells like a slice of warm Strawberry Rhubarb pie, it's safe to say that I've never smelled a beer like this! The taste is tart with lots of strawberries. It finishes with a sour aftertaste that lingers, very refreshing. I've never sampled a Flemish Red, but this is how I imagine it would taste. It's got a lot of flavor for such a light body. Crisp carbonation. Overall, an extremely well crafted fruit (if rhubarb is considered a fruit) beer that makes a perfect aperitif or accompaniment to a salad on a warm summer, or early fall, evening.

A - Cloudy light brown with little head when poured aggressively.

S - Sweet strawberries and rhubarb dominate with citrus/sour notes in the background.

T - Nicely balanced tart. Fizzy citrus front, sour rhubarb middle, and sweet strawberry finish. Great aftertaste.

M - Fizzy and full.

O - Might be my favorite new Tart from New Glarus Brewing... Strawberries are almost always a gimmick or failure, but in this beer they actually work. Haven't had a bad fruit/tart beer from New Glarus yet. World class indeed.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky red body. Big off white head. Great collar.

Smell - Strawberry juice. A bit of creaminess. Strawberry always hints at a milkiness for me.

Taste - Rich strawberry. Still some creaminess. A hint of acetic tang. Like it wants to be sour. I can't pinpoint rhubarb, though.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Creamy. Doesn't taste that light.

Overall - Delicious but it lacks the juicy perfection of the other New Glarus fruit beers.

Enjoyed out of a green 750 mL bottle and poured into a Boulevard Smokestack tulip. Thanks to Stevedore for getting this to me.

Appearance - Very unique looking for a beer. Body is a burgundy, reddish clay color and very cloudy, which gives the impression of fruit puree. Head is a finer and a half of sudsy sandy-colored bubbles. Takes its time dissipating and leaves little to no lacing.

Smell - An explosion of sweet and tart fruit characteristics, with very ripe strawberry being the dominant profile. The fruit is definitely the star, and the aroma has me a tad worried that this beer might be too sweet. On the positive side, there is a hint of tartness, like there may be a little pucker factor to this beer.

Taste - Delivers on the fruity promise of the nose, but this is not an artificial fruitiness that you get from syrups or the way crappy flavored malt beverages like Smirnoff Ice tastes. This is fresh, flavorful and tangy sweetness, with a semi-dry finish. Unfortunately, the hint of tart from the nose turned out to just be the natural acidity from the fruit. On the tastebuds, the tartness clearly comes from the natural punch of rhubarb, rather than any souring cultures or bacterial. Even so, it's quite delicious.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and moderate carbonation, providing an effervescent but substantial feel. In some ways, the feel--not the smell or taste--reminded me of a mimosa or bellini. Very refreshing.

Overall, a fantastic fruit beer. I can't say it's my favorite out of the incredibly broadly-defined style, but it's certainly up there. They manage to make the fruit the focal point of the beer without creating something cloying and overly-sweet. Rather than making it mouth-puckeringly sour with bacteria, they've tapped into the natural tartness of strawberry and rhubarb, to excellent results.
