Aroma if strawberry jam, candy sugar, jolly rancher. Taste jammy sweet strawberries, slight tartness. A little too sweet for my taste.

12 oz bottle. Smells like strawberry rhubarb pie, complete with baked crust, and a really good pie at that. The taste doesn't disappoint, instead living up to the promise of the aroma.
Excellent smooth body with perfect carbonation.
Overall: Super. A new favorite for me from New Glarus?

Poured a clearish rusty-red color with a fizzy off-white head that nearly completely disappeared, some tiny carbonation bubbles blipping from the bottom of the glass; no real lacing to speak of. Wafts of strawberry from the glass before I even held it to my nose. Unlike other NG fruit beers I've had, this one came off really strong and really artificial, like those little strawberry hard candies. The taste was similar, very sweet, loads of strawberry, with any rhubarb tartness being incidental and/or overwhelmed by the candy sweetness of the strawberry. Artificial and nearly medicinal, yet still strangely alluring. Body was medium, mouthfeel was syrupy and cloying. I didn't hate this, it had its charm, but it was just way to one-sided, sweet, fake-tasting for me to want more than a sample at a time.

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.

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.
