I generously received this from wisconsinbeer1. Thank you! The color is a bit of a murky brown with slightly orange hues. There is a nice half inch head.

The aroma is full of strawberry with notes of rhubarb. As soon as I opened the bottle I could smell the deliciousness. This smells nice and sweet; very excited.

The taste is mildly sweet. There is a subtly sweet, mildly tart strawberry taste. The tartness isn't prevalently from wild yeast, but from tartness inherent in the berry flavor. The finish is dry and not cloying. Very nice.

The body is medium to full with a bit of a cola-like mouth-feel. Overall I like this. I generally prefer fruit beers that are a bit more tart, but this is not too sweet and the flavor is genuine.

Bottle shared with Dad for the holidays. 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 worries 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.

750ml into a snifter.

A: Pours a murky, turbid, opaque cider-brown color with a small white head.

S: Awesome strawberry-rhubarb aroma. Not too sweet, with both the strawberry and rhubarb balanced together nicely.

T: Rush of sweet strawberry, lightly tart rhubarb, a hint of vanilla, grain, and yeastiness on the back end.

M: Medium-bodied with light yet crisp carbonation.

O: Don't let the appearance of this beer mislead you: it's damn tasty and not quite as cloyingly sweet as Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart.

Really didn't know what to expect in this. My first try of any NG beers. Visually not super appealing with the murky brown tinted red color. Great smell on this, fresh strawberry and red fruit. Taste was fine, I would've been more on board if it had some tartness going on. Rather it left me thinking strawberry jam.

Pour is a murky copper with some ruby edges and a tight tan head. Nose is earthy up front, root notes, strong strawberry fruit rollup comes in behind. Taste is more clean strawberry jam with a faint earthiness to balance. Really soft body and fairly assertive carbonation with a semi dry finish. A hint if tartness in back as the bright strawberry jam lingers.

Can't get enough of New Glarus's fruit beers, so I can't thank laymansbeerfan enough; thank you brother! Split with the wife into wine glasses.

A: Darker crimson brown, unfiltered towards the bottom of the 750, well carbonated with plenty of head but no lacing really.

S: Strawberry is upfront and full of life, sweet and fruity. Rhubarb is a bit buried but its tartness shines through lightly. Suggestions of honey, brown sugar, and other sweeter malt characters lie underneath all of the fruitiness.

T: Sweet strawberry dominates with rhubarb pulling in a distant second. Fruity and jammy; preserves/dessert/pie all come to mind. I could be imagining it but there does seem to be a sweeter malt backbone, with ghostly hints of caramel and brown sugar. Fruit-dominated though, for sure.

MF: Good carbonation keeps this from being cloying; lighter medium body.

O: I like strawberry, so this was a win for me. Would have loved a bit more balance from a tart rhubarb character but I'm nit-picking really. Awesome stuff.

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.

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.

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.

Poured from the bottle into a wine glass. 4/23

Pours earthy brown, murky, touch of white foam on top. Strong fruity smell very strawberry. Bursts forth. Rich fruit taste, some tart but evolves into a sweeter fruit. Full mouthfeel, really flavorful. Another winner.

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.

Fluffy frothy pinkish-brown head atop a murky reddish brown brew.

Huge smell of fresh strawberries.

It really is just like strawberry-rhubarb pie. A bit of a sour cherry taste to the end (the rhubarb?) slightly reminiscent of belgian red. Somewhat lacking in complexity or zest to the finish.

Carbonation a bit low for me.

I'd probably rank this as my lowest of the big 4 fruit beers, but it's still a nice diversion and gets big points for creativity.

Poured at 43°F from a 750ml bottle (bottled on October 2015) into a pint glass. Consumed on 10Jan15.
LOOK: Pours with a fingers worth of off-white foam that dissipates into a quarters worth within 40 seconds. Grayish brownish red in color with an extreme amount of cloudiness (this looks horribly unappealing). There are no rising bubbles once the foam head settles. Lacing is thin and moderate.
SMELL: Very strong sweet and tart strawberry jam flavors are quite evident up front. There is also a mild tart and earthy aroma that I can only assume is the rhuarb since I have never had it before. It complements the strawberry jam very well.
TASTE: Extremely strong sweet and tart strawberry flavors combine with strong earthy and sour rhubarb (once again, I'm assuming here) to create the initial taste. Hints of spicy hops immediately follow.
FEEL: Medium-bodied and highly carbonated. Goes down rough while also clinging to the back of the throat like syrup. Ends with a thirst-quenching finish. Tartness from the beer playfully agitates the tongue.
NOTE: Very basic in taste, yet so delicious. If you like strawberries and rhubarb, I can't see any reason as to why you wouldn't love this beer. The reason this rating wasn't higher was because it was so aesthetically unappealing. It looked like toxic sludge to be honest.

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.

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.

Served in a tulip glass

L - It is murky and tea colored with rose highlights. It is topped with several inches of tan head.

S - I get the strawberry smell immediately. Then I can pick up the tartness of the rhubarb.

T - Again the strawberry is the first thing that I notice. It has a nice tart finish from the rhubarb. It is very good.

F - Medium and sticky

O - This is a very tasty brew and very enjoyable. I paired it with my mom's homemade strawberry and rhubarb pie. Awesome pairing!

Appearance: a deep dark earthy red color, almost a leathery brown. half a finger of an off white head with decent retention and a sticky lacing all along the sides. completely hazy and opaque.

Smell: fresh strawberry preservatives. herbaceous rhubarb aroma. some tart fruit. end is full of sweet graham cracker like pie crust. some strawberry candy towards the end

Taste: opens up with a strawberry candy and fresh strawberry preservatives. graham crack pie crust. some slightly tart flavors come through along with rhubarb and more herbaceous character.

Mouthfeel: very sweet but enough tartness to balance it out. pretty juicy and refreshing. medium body.

Overall: another killer fruit beer from new glarus. This one works out well with both the tartness and rhubarb to balance out the super sweet strawberry candy like flavors.

Poured into a wine glass, a murky brown with little to no head. This kind of looks gross. The smell is AMAZING though. The smell is straight up Strawberry Preserves. Go to the store, pick up a jar of Smuckers Strawberry preserves, open and inhale and that's what this beer smells like. Taste perfectly mirrors the smell. Not getting much of the rhubarb, but I really don't care. The only complaint I guess is that the sweetness starts to naw at you after about 4 ounces. It's like getting too much of a good thing. In small doses, this is amazing.

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely murky brown hue with a layer of frothy ivory foam atop. Kind of mysterious -- though I'm not sure whether in a good or bad way. Definitely odd-looking for the style.

Smell: giant strawberry aroma that I've never seen achieved by other strawberry beers. The rhubarb doesn't pop, but there is a dash of tartness that may be due to it. I'm extremely impressed.

Taste: a bit malty with a giant strawberry flavor atop. A great strawberry flavor is so hard to achieve -- other fruits often work well, but I've never had a truly satisfying strawberry beer. New Glarus really know what they are doing here.

Mouthfeel: light body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess. Not bad.

Overall: massively drinkable and tasty, I've never had a strawberry beer that was this successful. Wonderful stuff.

A - Very muddy looking brown with pinkish, reddish hues. Good sized off white head that leaves patchy lacing.

S - Smells like strawberry jam. Sweet with a hint of tartness.

T - Fresh, ripe strawberries. Sweet strawberry upfront, followed by tart rhubarb with a lingering fruitness. Someone mentioned it tastes like a Snapple and not sure I would disagree.

M - Light with spritzy carbonation. Very creamy and interesting mouthfeel.

D - Amazing the strawberry/rhubarb flavor and aroma in this beer. Only complaint is it is a bit Snapple like.

A- Pours a very hazy, very deep orange to medium tan/brown in color. A big and frothy, light tan head forms and retains very well. Lacing on this one is pretty great too.

S- A strong and dominant strawberry fruitiness is what hits first on the nose. The rhubarb is definitely in there too, but the scent is predominantly strawberry. It is all fruit all the way through the smell and on the sweeter end of the scent spectrum.

T- The taste of this beer follows the same arc as the scent, except the rhubarb is a little stronger than the strawberry. At the beginning, the fruit is the prominent flavor and it continues to be through the majority of the drink, but at the back end a bit of funky grain kicks in. The grain tastes mostly like wheat, but there is also a touch of musty barnyard funk in there. Fruit lingers on the palate after the drink.

M- For the low alcohol and fruity flavor profile of this beer, the mouthfeel is rather thick and creamy. The carbonation is somewhat less than expected, but still at an acceptable level. It really goes down smooth and would be perfect on a hot summer day.

Overall, this is pretty much exactly what I expected after having Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Belgian Red. This beer is a delicious and fruity summer beer that is well made, easy to drink, and delicious.

This is a strawberry rhubarb sweet and sour beer. There is strong carbonation that can be compared to sparkling champagne. You can't see through the amber brown color. It smells like a sweet bruised apple. This is a good beer to introduce people to craft beer and it is also one that experienced beer connoisseurs can enjoy.

This beer was very refreshing and delicious. I like strawberries, but would much rather have a citrusy fruit. This beer tasted better than any plain strawberries I've ever had.

A- brownish with a hint of maroon. Had a nice head that lingered for a while.

S- The beer smelled sweet with fruity notes.

T- This beer tasted even better than it smelled. Had a sweet start with the strawberries and a tart finish with the Rhubarb. It kind of follows the saying- "the beer is sweet like a pretty girl, but don't blink, she can bite you at any second". ;)

M- The mouth feel was pleasant, and sort of stick (but that is what you should expect with a fruit beer).

O- I would recommend this beer to people who are fruit fans or like sweet beers!
I will be drinking this beer again.

Strawberry Rhubarb
New Glarus Brewing
Fruit beer
4% ABV

APPEARANCE: Poured a murky, muddy brown color. Very slight reddish/pink variations around the rim and sides of the glass. With the smallest halo of a head that just kinda lazily dissipated into nothingness.

AROMA: As I was pouring the smell of fresh made strawberry jam came rushing up at me. I got my nose in it and it literally smells like pie, you get the internees strawberry with nice hints of rhubarb. Then the malty pie crust comes through. This is one of the most intense bouquets I've had on a beer in a while.

TASTE: Like little tiny Keebler elves are baking a fresh pie in my mouth! That jammy, sweet strawberry is undeniable. Nice bit of tartness from the rhubarb, then those sweet malty aromas I got come in with a good balance. This beer taste so fresh and juicy, it is sweet but not overly or artifice sweet.

MOUTHFEEL: Light body with a medium prickly carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel I'm assuming from all the sugars in the fruit. There is a slight creaminess that really makes it drink nicely.

OVERALL: This was such a treat to drink, really enjoyed it. The only thing that kinda threw me off was the odd murky color but that's really just nit picking. I'm excited to get into the rest of the new glarus line up and see how they stack up against each other. I really do feel that new glarus is on top of the fruit beer world.

RATING: 4.2/5 Zombie Heads!

Pours clouded/hazed cider-colored with a bubbly head. Plenty of spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of musty, sour strawberry and rhubarb.

The taste is of sweet strawberry with just enough rhubarb to give it a bitter balance. Some malt sweetness adds just a caramel. It has tart finish.

Smooth. Carbonation level fits this brew well.

It is another well-made fruit beer from this brewery! It tastes like the fruits that it is brewed with. Nice sweettart character.
