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.

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 poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clouded murky copper to dirty brown color with white bubbles resting atop. They fade relatively quick but a swirl revives. This brew looks like dirty water.

The smell is pretty darn intense like all NG fruit offerings are. The nose is filled with a complete essence of strawberry jam leaving little to no room for anything else. Candied strawberries coupled with fresh cut strawberries...and then more strawberry.

The taste is jammy and sweet with strawberry jam leading the way so much so that the residual sugar seemingly has a bite to the back of the throat. Then the tartness of the rhubarb comes into focus with a little earthy hop touch to round things out.

This is a medium bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. It falls in line with all the other New Glarus fruit offerings, plenty of fruit and sticky sugars. Yet somehow balanced and not too over the top. I could never see myself drinking more than a half glass of this but it certainly is my wife's jam and she can rock this back like its nothing.

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.

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.
