COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Teased from the loam by the kiss of the Sun. Momís 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!

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
750 ml green waxed bottle served in a stemmed wine glass. Enjoyed 7/20/13. A: Pours a murky brownish color with some red tints to it. An off-white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring. Mild lace. S: Fresh squeezed strawberry with a nice oaky profile to it. There is a light spice from the rhubarb. A little stemmy and pithy as well. T: Same as the nose. Lots of freshy strawberry juice with a little sweetness and tartness to it all at the same time. Light oaky profile with some malty breadiness that provides even more sweetness, but in a different way. Nicely cuts the juiciness and fruitiness from strawberry. Light touches of spiced rhubarb. M: Extremely drinkable. Light bodied with a fruity and sweet finish. Light and airy mouthfeel. O: As with all New Glarus fruit beers this one is dangerously drinkable as it borders on a nice fruity juice. Nice balance of fruitiness and sweetness. Extremely fresh and juicy. Would enjoy again.

Bottle. Pink brown colour, little head. Aroma is strawberry cheesecake, bit funky, some citrus, sweet. Taste is great. All fruit beers should be like this. Bit sour from rhubarb, good strawberry sweetness. Creamy but still a bit tart. Really nice. Texture like a lambic. Initial sourness then goes into strawberry cheesecake. Best beer of the day by miles.

Bottle shared by Adam at my wedding, thanks! Pours a cloudy deep ruby red with a pink hue and a pink head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has tuns of rhubarb and sweet strawberry throughout. Flavor has sweet rhubarb and strawberry up front that has a bit of tartness for balance in the finish.

bytemesis (6599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle while camping. Pours cloudy brown with a medium somewhat fizzy head. Aroma is fruity, strawberries prominent, with some lactic tartness present. Flavor is sweet and a bit of tart, strawberry with just a touch of that rhubarb flavor I remember best from my momís pies as a kid. Quite good as a desert sipper, and every bit as good as the rest of the NG fruit beer lineup.

Bomber. Hazy brown with a small head. Smells like strawberry jam. Strawberry and tart.

Bottle: The aroma consists of huge strawberries and little else. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy sweet strawberry. The finish has light tart strawberry and lemon. Itís medium bodied mild with moderate carbonation. Overall, itís every bit the quality of other New Glarus fruit beers. My rating is more of a representation of my liking for strawberries.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Muddled, swampy brown, almost completely opaque with barely a head; off white film. Aroma is deliciously fruity. Not sure what rhubarb smells like, but this is "berry" centric, with lots and lots of strawberry; light tartness and delicate residual sweetness. Taste is like juice; strawberry juice with light jam notes, sugary sweetness, and only the mildest tartness in the very back. Thin bodied, tight carbonation. Though far from my favorite NG fruit beer, still pretty solid all around.

Update: Bumping up my rating of this; more recent bottles that Iíve opened have had a larger rhubarb character with the strawberry shifting towards more of an undercurrent/periphery role, essentially giving the beer a brighter, zesty tartness throughout & toning down the sweetness from the first, most fresh batches I had. Definitely coming into its own.

25 oz bottle. Cloudy brown with garnet tints and a lacy head. Nose is strawberry preserves and faint celery, rhubarb. Lively, spritzy and juicy medium body; tart and refreshing. Taste is strawberry and sour raspberry fading to lemon pith and earthy rhubarb. Great showcase for the strawberrys even if a bit too sweet and one-dimensional.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Pours a murky, muddled pink/orange/brown with a medium fluffy off white head. Smell is sweet fresh strawberries, light maltiness, more strawberries, and other sweet/tart berries. Taste is a good balance of sweet and tart strawberries, tart apples, light malt Nice body to this 4%er which I guess is from the rhubarb. Just goes to show what simplicity can do for a small beer with big flavor. Just love the light fresh tartness of this brew.
