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.

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 - Opaque pink/red strawberry colored pour with a pink lacing ring that's creamy and bubbly.

S - Strawberry, rhubard, and creme. That's it.

T - Strawberry, creme, and rhubarb. Juicy and tart with a hint of sourness
.

M - Medium body with a wet finish.

O - If I want Tropicana fruit juice I'll go to the grocery store and buy some. No thanks.

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.
