Pours pink brown with a sandy etched surface. Smells of strawberries, very natural, some soil, bit of grassy rhubarb and a little table sugar. Flavor is sweet with strawberry, some tart, some bitterness - jammy. Hi carb and a heavy body come together to make a meringue feeling. Lovely feel. I like this beer very much. wchesser (2160) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
From FlandersNed. Thanks, Steve! Cloudy brown, not much to look at. Nose is huge strawberry. Flavours of juicy strawberries and an earthiness and light tart finish, both presumably from the rhubarb. Probably not my favorite fruit beer from these guys, but still amazing what they can do with fruit. RamyG4 (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a completely opaque caramel-brown, with a medium off-white head. Aroma is bursting with fresh strawberries, strawberry preserves, with a little bit of acidity presumably from the rhubarb. Taste is sweet strawberries and almost nothing else (but that’s what NG does so brilliantly, isn’t it), with just a touch of tartness. Finish is sweet and lightly tart. Medium body, somewhat sticky texture. Delicious. j12601 (13298) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle at Andy’s for New Years. Hazed brown with a thin white head. Huge sweet strawberry with some tartness. Medium, sweet sticky strawberry jam, a touch if rhubarb tang. Tart on the finish, rhubarb. Lovely. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
A fantastic fruit beer. Pours a murky brown with quick fading head. I can’t imagine a beer smelling better. A great strawberry jam aroma. Flavors are strawberry jam.. Beautiful rhubarb notes. Reminds me of perogies with strawberry jam. Tangy and delicious.

Bottle shared with northropfrye and cards04. Head isn’t much to speak of nor is the colour but the aroma and taste remind me of cottage cheese perogies with rhubarb sauce just like my Mom made. I love this. northropfrye (3732) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Iced tea appearance, white head, but fades quickly and not a lot of lacing. Vibrant sweet strawberry aroma, more strawberries than rhubarb in the aroma. Taste is nice and sweet with a touch of tartness from the rhubarb, tastes a bit like dough and pectin, and the finish is a bit weak. Palate is pretty middling. Again, I find these New Glarus fruit beers to be marvellous at first but the flavour fades away quite quickly, I guess that might be called a watery finish. Still tastes great…at first. Nice beer overall. Clownoisseur (489) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a hazy ruby color, with a thin white head, fading quickly to fine lacing. Smells of strawberry jam, ready for some toast! Has a great initial tartness, some earthy undertones, thickness in the mouthfeel let’s the strawberry jam slide into the back end. Delicious! Mildly acidic and very drinkable. Dangerously good. On par with the other fine New Glarus fruit beers. kkleu357 (640) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Brownish purple in color. Fruity, sour, kind of soapy smell. Nice sweet taste. Tartness from the strawberries, but still sweet. This is good, but the cherry one us better. tderoeck (10617) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2014
24/XII/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-1172) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!
Little hazy copper coloured beer, small aery off-white big bubbled head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, strawberry jam, yoghurt, cow stable, strawberry candy, little dirty (say funky if you want a euphemism). MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of strawberry yoghurt, pretty sweet and sugary, little citric acidity. Aftertaste: lots of rhubarb jam and strawberry jam, strawberry yoghurt, sugary and sweet with a nice citric ending. Well, it tasted like real fruit, even if it’s cooked real fruit. But it’s too sweet and sugary for my liking. The citric acidity in the end cuts a little through that, so you’re not left with a cloying sugary mouth feeling, but that’s not enough for me. I prefer real fruity tartness.
