My 2nd time visiting Spuyten in Brooklyn the first for rhubarb zwanze and now this seems like a pattern is forming. Pours dull but pleasant hazy orange. Nose is acidic. Tastes of rhubarb, minerally, light honey, earth, and caramel. Acidic and tart, my favorite of Fruity Cologne.

Tap at Spuyten for the German fruit beers event. Heavy, harsh malic acid from the rhubarb, biting and sharp in the mouth. I think, perhaps, they should have cooked the rhubarb briefly to reduce the malic acid slightly and bring out the natural flavor of the fruit.
