Teased from the loam by the kiss of the Sun. Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb delights are the happy memories of childhood. Diploma Master Brewer Dan employed juicy sweet Strawberries to tame the barbaric wild tart fermentation of rhubarb. Escaped from the far corners of neighboring yards, local rhubarb was incorporated into the wild sour fermentation to create this drinkable dream. Bright sour and effervescent. Toast chilled cold to Bright skies, fireflies, bare feet and rhubarb pies!

I love the flavor concept, and rhubarb is one of my very favorite foods, but I would assert that the high average rating for this beer reflects the great reputation of New Glarus, and especially its wonderful cherry and raspberry beers. In this case, the strawberry aroma is excellent and the flavor has some complexity, but not enough, especially in the rhubarb department. Nor is the tartness as vibrant as I hoped for in a wildly fermented beer. Good, but not great. A good Christmas Eve treat, all the same. Bottle.

Bottle from DrewFace... Thanks sucker. Aroma is all strawberries. Pours pour red/orange with small white head. Taste is also all strawberries. Really like it, would be much on your own, but it is really nice.

Pours a cloudy reddish orange color. Big strawberry aroma, light tartness. Huge strawberry flavor too, real strawberries, light creamy type character, tartness in the back. Sweet overall but a tasty fruit beer.

Bottle shared with Dad for the holidays. Pours a slightly murky brown with some red hues and a brownish off white head. Smell is big time fresh strawberries and some tart rhubarb. Flavor follows with up front sweet strawberry followed by a tinge of malts and a tad of sour rhubarb to finish. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation makes this super easy to put down the gullet. I was worries I wouldn't like this as other strawberry drinks have not been up my alley. But as usual New Glarus hit it on the nose with another fruit beer. Very nicely done. This was a hit all around.

Bomber. Ruby brown pour with off white head. Some retention. Nose mainly of fresh strawberries maybe slight lemon. Taste is full of strawberries, and other fruit. Slight vegetable flavor as well. Very mild acidity and finish more on the sweet side than dry. Pretty cool.

Whoa, amazing beer via trade with Homer321! The 75cl bottle pours with a murky chalky paper like copper body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up earthy fruity goodness, fresh cut strawberries and some sweet sugary malts binding everything together. The taste is straight up fresh yummy strawberry running into smooth malts and earthy malt nuanced berry fruitiness. Nice stuff. Oh man. Wonderful. I need more of this.

Purchased at Steve’s Wines in Madison, WI; enjoyed while watching Robocop with friends after a video shoot in Milwaukee, WI. This stuff is awesome. Appearance is a cloudy mixture of dark brown / ruby with a rich white, frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is rich, very sweet with a great strawberry profile, smell is very fresh, like a nice purée. Taste is fantastic, goes down sweet but not especially tart, I’m wondering if the rhubarb helps to balance that out. Very happy I was able to have this one.

Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours translucent brown with small beige head. Nice strawberry aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is fruity, sweet/tart strawberry, and some rhubarb. I like several of there other fruit beers better (apple ale, Belgian Red, Serendipity, and Raspberry tart), but still a very good beer.

Slightly tangy lush strawberry flavor with some sparkle. Very refreshing with no bitter after taste.
