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 (482) - 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 (634) - 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 (9744) - 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!deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
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.
A - pours a murky reddish brown with 2 finger fluffy white head that disappeared quickly. S - wow. This smells like a strawberry rhubarb pie (or those little strawberry Bon Bon candies). This is a dessert beer! Musty damn fruity and sweet. M - medium sticky sweet body. Drinkable and good. T - musty and overly sweet muddled strawberry and rhubarb. Honey and floral notes as well. O - very good. Amazing fruit beer. 4.0

Pours an unassuming murky/dirty rreddihs brown with one to two fingers of dense and fluffy head that settles nicely.back into itself. Absolutely amazing nose. Incredibly intense strawberry character that borders on fresh jam. Ephemeral berry sweetness and light tartness with a touch of earthy notes Very light berry sweetness in the flavor with a bit more acidity than the nose lets on. Light bodied and tart with a dry finish. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014

Bottle. Murky brown liquid with small white head. Aroma of strawberries, raspberries, sugar, rhubarb, citric acid and toffee. Taste is medium sweet and light sour with notes of strawberries, rhubarb, toffee and sugar. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but almost too much. djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy orange amber, thin tan head. Aroma is fresh strawberry, light herbal and rhubarb. Taste is strawberry and toasty malt, slight citrus and herbal. It is light sour with light sparkling. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2013
750 mL waxed bottle crushed with the fam post-feast. Pours cloudy light ruby, almost pink with very little head. Huge rush of strawberry on the nose, with some sour notes that complement very nicely. Wonderful prickly mouthfeel. Liquid strawberry with terrific tartness. About as good as it gets.
