Brown body, thick off white cap, lots of lacing.
Aroma of strawberry, rhubarb.
Lots of fruit strawberry taste, with tart rhubarb. Mostly sweet strawberry, some tart rhubarb.
Thick, coating mouth feel.
Fruit beer with conviction, balance of sweet and sour, but not too sour (just to balance the sweet strawberry).

L: A dark red, hazy body with a thin, almost pink head. Right off the bat, the look of this beer took me my surprise - it almost looks like strawberries out of a juicer.

S: What a wonderful smell! Fresh strawberry pie, strawberry preserves, fresh-picked rhubarb and strawberry from the garden.

T: The taste follows up the nose perfectly with a massive strawberry and rhubarb explosion. The carbonation is perfect, and it feels like scooping the freshest strawberry preserves you can find into your mouth with each sip.

F: Again, the carbonation was spot on and it left me wanting more after each sip. The body was a tad thicker than I expected, but it made beer better in my opinion - as it seems like they were going for liquefied strawberry pie (they nailed it).

O: This is definitely a beer I will seek out time and time again. New Glarus has always done exceptional things with fruited beers, and this one may take the cake for me. What an excellent offering!

Wow. What a great beer.

Hazy red color. Nice head that reduces to a thin ring that stays.

Smell has strong fermented strawberries.

Taste is exceptional. Strawberry starts with the rhubarb finish. Excellent taste t the style.

Nice carbonation in the beer. Finishes crisp.

Overall this is excellent.

Is this my favorite New Glarus beer of all time? Possibly. Definitely my favorite of the fruit series beers. Even more rad now that they have it in 12 oz bottles. Appearance isn't the sexiest of sexy, its a muddled rust color essentially, brown and dark burnt coppery red, very little 1/5" like head. Aroma is tart, plenty of strawberry pushing its weight around.

Taste, yum, the tart and bitter rhubarb play well with the strawberry sweetness. Balanced and layered, just like the pie. Very easy drinking, there is also a mild undercurrent of caramel to it. This succeeds in that it is the most sour and tart of their fruit beers. Things like Raspberry Tart I thought would be better if they had a more amped up sour game like this beer has. Simply a classic beer.
