4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 750 mL bottle supplied by Stine - many thanks! Split three ways, and served at 51°. To semi-clean (kidding: was quite clean) oversized snifter, it pours a burnt carrot orange with which a snowy white head 1 finger in length stood. Murky. Aromas of strawberry rhubarb pie, Virgil’s Peach Lemonade, light candi sugar, fresh mint, kiwifruit, black limes, seaweed, minerals, unripe cranberries, and papaya. Tastes the with the addition of mashed banana, caramel apples, and American yeast. Ridiculously fruity. Love this. And I knew I would. New Glarus knows how fruit beers are supposed to taste. I could easily drink five of these in under an hour.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle shared by Radarsock, much thanks on this Andrew!! Dark hazy brown color thin head, low retention. Holy hell that is a shit ton of strawberry! Aroma is bursting with smashed strawberry and weak soured rhubarb. Damn I Inhaled the aroma for a good 2 minutes before I even sipped it.
Flavor is just as luscious as the aroma. Abundant amount of strawberries with very mild tartness in the finish. The flavor is off the wall good for a 4 % brew. Just crazy juicy strawberries and the mild rhubarb is so nice to balance the berry sweetness, just great tasting.

Bottle shared by Radarsock, thanks Andrew! Pours oxidized strawberry brown with a white head. Aroma is straight up strawberry, like opened by a container of tart frozen strawberries. Taste is delicious, backbone is russet apple, with lots of natural strawberry, seeds and all, on top.

[6058-20131115] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Strawberry fruit jam aroma is strong and beautiful. Hazy, brown amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Super strawberry flavour and seeds has a ton of fruity notes and finishes like a Yop. Medium body is fruity tart, "not Cantillon tart". Delicious!! (10/4/9/4/17) 4.4

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Colour...cloudy amber with a thin white head. Nose...a big brimming bowl of strawberry-rhubarb compote! Palate...very strawberry-rhubarb-y to start, but then it dissipates rapidly and theres a bit of metal at the back of the palate. Still, a dandy when it’s quite cold!
