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.

One of my favorite fruit beers easily. Just unreal strawberry goodness!
