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

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.

Bottle shared by HopasaurusRex, thanks for the opportunity Todd!
Pours the murkiest light grey brown color with a hint of head on top. Huge aromas of juicy sweet strawberries and a hint of earthy and tartness. Hops yeah maybe. The flavor is rich and sweet with lots of sugary sweet strawberries with just a hint of earthy tartness to not make it cloying. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet just short of syrupy mouthfeel. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus. Cast from the same mold as the other beers with a different fruit and the same wonderful results.

750ml bottle into a snifter

pours a murky brown with a slight head. smell is amazing..EXACTLY like strawberry rhubarb pie!! awesome. taste starts out very slightly tart with a big rhubarb flavor. it lingers on your palate for a while , the tartness fades very quickly. medium bodied with mild carbonation

overall impressive nose..maybe the best of any beer. recommended

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.

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.
