i dont know much about rhubarb’s flavor, so not sure if that was throwing it off or not. the finish had an odd buttery vegetal element to it. good, but could do without that strange aftertaste.

Fruit in the Room at CCB - Pours light red, milkly color with light white red head. Strawberries and tart in the nose. The taste is more tart, a little pucker. Strawberries and the Rhubarb blend together nicely. This beer is ridiculously good. Thanks, JW!!!

(bottle shared by Dak at Black Friday). Pours a light hazy pink grapefruit color. Aroma has...strawberry and rhubarbb. Taste follows suit with some sweet and tart. Medium bodied with a tart, dry finish. This was a really nice beer.

Tasted at the Black Friday tasting and generously supplied be Dak. It pours murky opaque grapefruit juice mixed with strawberry enhanced lemon aid with almost no head. The aroma is rich and smooth yumminess derived from a pleasing strawberry note and thin rings of musty moldy earthy fruitiness. The taste has a pleasing tart earthy fruity freshness that works wonderfully with notes of strawberry, smooth yeastiness, rich earthy vegetable notes and a little bit of smooth sweet malts. Darn tasty and another great creation.

Bottle at Black Friday tasting. Weird and funky. Quite sour. Nicely captures the strawberry rhubarb flavor. A bit of cheap hooker in this one as well.

Pinkish pour. Nice white head. Aroma of berries and distinctly rhubarb, some cheesy funk. Flavor is tart and so fruity, the fruit really shines in another masterpiece. Awesome.

Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2011This beer rocks!… Cloudy, pink grapefruit-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The tart, fruity nose provides striking notes of rhubarb and strawberry – more rhubarb than strawberry. Medium-bodied and creamy with laid-back carbonation. Mirroring the aroma, the flavor is quite fruity and very tart – lots of rhubarb, strawberry and acidity – even at room temperature. Finishes tangy, fruity and then dries out nicely. Another fantastic creation by John Wakefield!

On draft at Cigar City for Fruit in the Room. Pours a hazy pink with some particulate matter and a white head. Nose is strawberries, tartness, some bitter rhubarb, hints of berry, some seeds, and a vague sweetness blending with the tartness inherent in a berliner. Flavor is similar with strawberry rhubarb pie in front followed by tart and sweet in mid finishing with a pleasant berry and tartness. Light to medium in body and delicious overall.
