4.36/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours with a large luscious head. Murky, brownish ruby red color to this brew. Above average active carbonation with plenty of thick lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Smell: A wonderfully rounded bright strawberry aroma hits the nose right away. The rhubarb adds some subtle bittering accents which add quite a bit of complexity. Taken all together, this aroma comes off quite a bit like the Raspberry Tart also from New Glarus with just a little less tartness.

Taste: A highly carbonated tart rhubarb feeling is the first to arrive on the scene. That is quickly washed away by an overpowering strawberry sugary feeling which just takes over the palate. Waves and waves of strawberries keep coming, so fresh and clean. My only gripe is that the rhubarb is not nearly as much of a player as I hoped it would be. The finish is light and refreshing. Simply what a fruit beer should be.

Mouthfeel: Sweet, crisp, with some very slight dryness that I imagine is from the rhubarb.

Overall: Of course I had high expectations from this brew and it did not disappoint. Like I said above, this beer feels a little off balance in the strawberry to rhubarb ratio. The fruit accents are incredibly bright and vibrant, like no other fruit beer in the business.

A: Copper color and cloudy with a slightly red tinted fizzy head that lingers.

T: It tastes exactly like strawberry flavored yogurt with a sour kick.

M: Medium bodied and bubbly.

O: Really good beer. Fantastic actually. Like I said earlier it tastes A LOT like strawberry yogurt. The only problem I have with New Glarus's fruit beers (and most of their regular beers) is that they ABV is so damn low. If I wanted a soda I would drink a Pepsi.

Thanks to the minnesotaryan/kwmiles/Sender collective for the bottle.

Appearance: Hazed ruddy reddish orange brown. Small loose bubbly off-white head. Drops to a spotty cap and collar in short order. Spotty lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Loaded with strawberry. Fresh fruit coupled with some serious jam-like qualities. A touch of lingering bitterness through the back, but it's buried under the strawberry. Pale, clean light malts. Sweet and fruity as to be expected. A tiny but of buttery breadiness in there as well.

Taste: Blend of bitter and slightly tart rhubarb coupled with the jammy sweetness of strawberry. Rich strawberry flesh. A touch of something akin to green apple. Deeply fruity with some strawberry juice. A touch of pale malt sweetness rounds out the back. Just shoves straight strawberry in a bottle. Very slightly tart. A nice compliment, for obvious reasons.

Mouthfeel: Medium to high bubbly carbonation. Smooth and bright. Mediumish body. Slightly dry finish.

Overall: Wisconsin is the land of magic.

It's a New Glarus fruit beer. Do yourself a favor and buy all of it and send it to me.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this gem. I assume it's a gem because it's a New Glarus fruit beer. This is a safe assumption.

Consumed 12/11/13

Appearance: Somewhere between medium amber and light brown, with some reddish and pink tones - pours with a medium sized, off-white head, fades to a small, wispy cap, leaves a few spots of lacing

Smell: Strawberry rhubarb pie, in liquid form - lots of strawberry flesh and a ton of rhubarb - very fresh - usual juicy-smelling strain of yeast apparent in most New Glarus fruit beers - some sugary, fruity sweetness - some pale malts and some light biscuits - some light funkiness and light tartness

Taste: Juicy, fruity, pie-y goodness - lots of strawberry flesh and rhubarb - very fruity and flavorful - tart rhubarb - lightly spicy - definitely tastes like pie filling - light, fruity sweetness - touch of fruity funk and some overall tartness - some nice pale malts, some doughy biscuits

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, clean finish

Overall: Want.

New Glarus makes great fruit beers. Everyone knows that. This is great, even for their high standards. I've had pies with less flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured into tulipp glass.

Appearance: light to medium amber and tinge of crimson color beer. Small cap of bubbly white foam that drops down to nothing.

Smell: Overripe and juicy strawberries. Lots of strawberries without being overwhelming. Slight tart note which I am assuming is the rhubarb.

Taste: Lots of strawberries! Just the right amount of them too. They taste very close to what real strawberries taste like. A touch of tartness of rhubarb that balances out the sweetness of the strawberries almost flawlessly. This beer is all about the balance between the strawberries and the rhubarb.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Rediculous how drinkable this beer is... It makes your mouthwater after every sip. Carbonation is adequate and mellow; slightly creamy.

Overall: Another masterpiece by New Glarus. This guys are doing amazing things with fruit beer. Serendipity and Strawberry Rhubarb within less than a year apart... New Glarus and company; we are going to expect even more fruit beer experiments since you nailed the last two that you brewed. I highly anticipated this fruit beer from Dan and crew...I gotta day that I am not dissapointed!

Pours deep burgundy. Initial pour yields three fingers head. Solid looking beer.

Smells of strawberry jam. Primarily sweet if the nose but there is a bit of tartness.

Taste is sweet with the strawberries but it goes a bit deeper than the nose. Rhubarb tartness balances the sweetness. As with other NG fruit beers the fruit flavors are the star.

Love the mouthfeel on all of NG fruit beers. This is no different.

Pretty much all I expected but perhaps I would like just a bit more tartness. Not disappointed.

750 ml bottle

Pours a burnt orange color with a slight haze. A prominent beige head with a bit of stickiness. Aromas of jammy strawberries are strongest. A little of that distinct rhubarb aroma if you look for it. Taste is fruity for sure. Strawberry (fruity, a bit seedy and fresh) with a bit of astringent sour rhubarb noted too. Light bodied with medium to slightly high carbonation. A bit of tartness to balance the upfront sweetness. Overall a refreshing easy to drink tasty beer. Yet to have anything but a super fruit beer from New Glarus. Good dessert beer/strawberry rhubarb torte-like

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a 2 finger cream head. Thick ring of lacing and trails.

Has a vegetal and somewhat medicinal aroma with a nice strawberry accent.

Sweet honey, sugar, some tartness I am guessing from the rhubarb? And very nice strawberry flavor.

Another amazing fruit beer from NG. Has some tartness and rhubarb, vegetal notes as well as a nice amount of strawberry.

Short lived white head recedes to a cap and collar. Color is a cloudy light amber. A swirl reveals good solid splotches through tulip. Overall pleasing.

Dank strawberry on the nose. Sharp tart acidity. Aroma comes out better as it warms.

It's straight up strawberry on the palate, there is no way around it. Tartnesa coming from the rhubarb? Low ABV keeps me reaching for this emptied shared bottle.

Mouthfeel on par with it's triplet siblings. Carbonation dances on the tongue with a full mouthfeel.

On point with Dan and crew's world reknowned fruit beers. Exceedingly we are able to cross off the list of fruits that haven't been blessed to be brewed in New Glarus, WI. Don't stop now.

Taste: Tastes like liquid strawberry rhubarb pie; just a hint of malt for the crust and a nice element of subtle tartness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation; a touch prickly

Overall: A great fruit beer; just love the way this one tickles the tastebuds

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

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.

New Glarus are the masters of fruit beers, so when they released a new one, I quickly snapped it up. Tasted 22 August 2013.

The pour is really interesting. In the glass by itself, it looks like murky unfiltered apple cider. With light behind it, it's quite clear, and some lovely reddish and orange tones come out. Half-finger of off-white head, good retention, decent lacing. Not bad.

Smell is fantastic. I really don't know how they get such stunning fruit aromas into their beers. It's jam-packed with ripe strawberries, complemented with a slightly lighter dose of rhubarb, with the gaps filled in by gentle sugary sweetness. Wow.

Taste is fabulous as well. Tartness is more prominent than sweetness, which is a relief, as otherwise it would be overpoweringly sweet. The strawberry and rhubarb blend quite well. Biggest complaint is a bitterness in the finish that I just don't think works with the rest of the beer.

Feel is nice. Light-bodied, pleasant, and lasting. Sticky, indicative of the high amount of residual sugar. Carbonation could be a bit higher.

Dan Carey is just a master of fruit beers. They've come out with two new high-production ones (this and Serendipity) in the last year or so, and both have been amazing. Really delicious, and really impressive.

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.

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.

Poured from a waxed 750 ml bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep copper amber with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head that slowly recedes into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very fruity and jammy aroma with lots of strawberry rhubarb esters. Literally smells like a mix of fresh squeezed strawberry juice and rhubarb pie with lots of fruit scents upfront. Fairly jam like scent as well. Light hints of apple and cherry in the mix. Fruit aroma is sweet and fairly tart. Subtle pale malt presence with a hint of biscuit and yeast. Aroma is fairly straight forward but very good.

Taste: As good and fruity as it smells, huge taste of strawberries throughout. Strawberry fruit juice and pie like rhubarb flavors are the dominant notes. Fruit flavor is sweet but not excessively syrupy. Nicely tart with a decent bitter balance. Jam like notes with some sugar. Also some subtle fruit notes of cherry and apple behind the strawberry. Background notes of soft pale malt with some biscuit and yeast. A very good fruit beer taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet, creamy, and somewhat syrupy. Very juicy and smooth.

Overall: Another great fruit beer from New Glarus. Great strawberry fruit flavor with a good balance of sweetness and tartness.

Appearance is somewhat cloudy with an orange/brownish color, minimal head, and some lace. The aroma starts with bright and fruity strawberry with notes of tart rhubarb and mild oak. The strawberry is very nicely represented here, the best strawberry aroma I have encountered in a beer. The taste is full on ripe strawberries which presents a very fresh juicy flavor. This is wrapped around a hint of rhubarb and finishes very clean. Not quite the tart bite that I've grown accustomed to with other New Glarus fruited brews, but the clean finish is very refreshing. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. Overall, another amazing New Glarus fruit beer. Not sure how the Carey's do it, but they know how to incorporate fruit into beer!

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!

The success of New Glarus' fruit beers is well documented. As it's reputation precedes it, the strawberry-rhubarb marriage is an ideal fit. Just read the label: "New Glarus", "Strawberry", Rhubarb". The review is not even needed- (drops the mic)

But here I go anyway... Its pour is a turbulent champagne bubbly crescendo where its racy effervescence topples the glass. Its body beneath is a mostly-gold, but slight pinkened hue with a mild pectin haze. Easily mistaken for sparkling rose wine, the ale looks like its meant for New Year's Eve.

Bright, sweet and tart aromas kinda jump right up there and smack ya in the face with that vibrant aroma that's unmistakably of strawberry. Where its easy to read other fruit like tart green apple, green grape, cranberry or pomegranate could be present; instead its the tangy and earthy rhubarb that gives its scent something extra that's hard to put the finger upon. Still, a wine like and sulfur scent rounds out the fruit with common ale sensibilities.

Its taste is a direct follow-through of aromas. Its dainty sweetness is lightly bready as light wheat contributions keep things somewhat fresh and doughy. But its candied taste that takes on "Pez-like" proportions of powdered sugar and tangy fruit set in. But once its sweetness folds in the strawberries and rhubarb character- its culmination is masterfully tart, zesty, earthy and fresh. Tangy throughout, the malt breadiness reminds the taste buds of fresh rhubarb pie. Its finish is as much of champagne as it is ale with a dry malt taste and elevated acidity.

Likewise, its body is modestly bready and creamy as it prefers the dry effervescence of sparkling white wine. Even as the fruit and sweet-tart tones play out in taste, the body remains light and slightly creamy. Finishing tart, dry and refreshed- the palate is further rewarded by echoes of strawberry and light graham crackers.

Where the Rapberry Tart, Belgian Red and Apple Ale are obvious leaders in their class, they strike me as being overly fruit (if ever so slightly). But this Strawberry Rhubarb may be the best fruit beer to have ever grazed my palate.

Felt the need to give this a try.

Pours a dark, murky orange. Not what I was expecting.

The nose smells identical to the strawberry pie sauce I make a couple of times each year. Fantastic.

Taste is similar, but had a noticeable tartness that cuts though the sweetness. Better than I was expecting.

Mouthfeel is pleasant. Nice carbonation and a oh-so slightly puckering tartness.

Overall, this may be my favorite of the New Glarus 750's. I was expecting a sugar bomb like Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red. Instead, I get a well balanced and slightly tart beer that tastes like strawberry pie. Wonderful job!

This beer is insanely accurate to how it is advertised. Great look, just reddish enough to be a fruit beer, nice sticky lacing.

Basically, this beer smells and tastes like fresh blended strawberry and rhubarb to a T, what an accomplishment. Not tart, but not too sweet, just a great level of fresh produce in the flavor and taste. It's quite an accomplishment in the fruit beer style, these guys take it to a new level.

Feel is good, nice carbonation overall solid. A really interesting and impressive beer, a great change of pace in the new brewing world of bigger abv and crazier flavors. They nailed this. I can't think of a better beverage to pair with a dessert that features fresh fruit.

If this had more tartness, I don't know if I couldn't have given it an even better rating.

The beer appears mildly hazy and a grapefruit pinkish color. The aroma is classic New Glarus. Sweet and fresh fruit abounds. Teeming with strawberry and rhubarb, akin to a homemade pie. Just delicious. Quite possibly the best beer I have had from this brewery. As with other beers of this ilk, I prefer to enjoy in small quantities, as the sweetness can become cloying. Overall, this was fantastic.

750ml bottle, split

Hopleaf tulip. An odd looking beer - dark garnet, extremely cloudy. New Glarus are the undisputed (not open to debate) champions of the fruit beer style and its really exciting to see the line of 750's expand in the past year or so. Strawberry is an ingredient I have rarely seen translate well in a beer, until now. This is bursting with fruit flavor - a little tartness from the berry and a little sweetness from the rhubarb. This is an instant-classic and an incredible summer beer.
