4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium ruddy brown with a 3 finger, creamy tan head that has great retention. Aroma is huge with the aroma of strawberry rhubarb pie, it really is unbelievable how well they recreated that amazing aroma. Maybe a bit light on the rhubarb, but Iíll let it slide, because it smells amazing. Throw in some extra floral and fruity notes and some extra tartness, maybe a little lactic acid twinge. Flavor is full on strawberry rhubarb pie right up front, more rhubarb in the flavor than the aroma, complete with nice toasty flavors, a little vanilla, nice, sweet floral notes, lactose-like sweetness, a little toffee, cereal and a nice little extra tartness bringing up the finish. Medium, juicy body with a creamy entry, light, spritzy and blanketing carbonation and nice acidic tingle coming in midway. Fantastic all around. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma has some huge strawberry notes as well as a hint of earth. The flavor is more of the same. I get some big strawberry jam, as well as a hint of rhubarb. There is also a little bit of tartness in there that really makes things come together nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.

Bottle: Reddish brown with a cream color head. Amazing smell of homemade strawberry jam. A virtual liquid fruit roll-up. You can detect a little bit of the sour in there as well. AMAZING!!!!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour is cloudy copper with a hint of red and a medium white head. Aroma really is loaded with strawberry and rhubarb. Not much else in the aroma. Flavor is tart up front followed by fruity strawberry and rhubarb. This delivers on what it promises. The flavor is so fruity that it tastes artificial. Not sure I love it, but itís true to its name.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Bottle thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a murky brown with bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly to leave light lace. Aroma is straight up strawberry, amazingly fresh nose. Taste follows with a hint of earth on the back end, a hint of tartness but very mild. Good stuff, I wonder if it ages to become more sour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour murky brownish caramel color with a small but lasting beige head.Faint strawberry/ yeasty/ funky aroma with a nice strawberry flavor and a slight vegetable touch. Not as intense as other New Glarus beers in terms of acidity/ flavor. Medium to light palate, refreshing and very easy to drink. Guess I like the other fruit beer from them better... But even though this is a bit blander, it kind of grows on you and you start to get more flavors. Could see myself grilling in the summer with this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy brownish color out of the bottle with a nose that does remind me of a strawberry rhubarb pie. Nice natural strawberry flavor with some rhubarb custard and pie crust notes. Just enough tartness to reference the fruit without being sour. Another very nice fruit beer from New Glarus.

Cloudy reddish pour from 22oz bottle at the lake. Wow. Where to start. Aroma is strawberry Carmel sweetness. Crazy smell like a pile of fruits. Tart malty and syrupy strawberry taste. Just too much wine cooler for me.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into fluted glass. Opaque reddish-brownish color with fizzy off-white head that dissipates completely over time. Smells like a jar of strawberry jam. Taste has some strawberry and rhubarb (of course), with plenty of tart-ness. Feel is a bit fizzy. Overall, a pretty tasty fruit brew. I like some of the others better, though.
