Big strawberry aroma from this cloudy brown beer. Nice tall head. If you’ve never had rhubarb you might not recognize it. Light fruit is pleasant and makes for a refreshing finish.

Nice 80 degree day to enjoy this one. Nice aroma of sweet, fresh strawberries. NIce orange amber pour with loads of carbonation, and a frothy head. Sweet fruit out of the gate, nice tartness to balance, and finishes clean with a balanced tartness and tiny stings from the carbonation....nice going down. Balance between sweet and tart is top notch.

Pours a murky cider like brown with a fizzy quickly dissipating head. Has some cidery like notes with strawberry the more prevalent of the fruits used. Slightly tart, a light sourness. Nice beer

Murky amber with a tan head.
Loads of sweet strawberries in the aroma; a bit like strawberry-jam.
Too sweet in flavour. Mostly strawberries. Rhubarb? Maybe some tart notes...

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to our gracious host for this sweet treat. Very hazy amber beer, small white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Wonderful vibrant strawberry candy kicks off, followed by a brief tart burst that reigns the sweetness in a little. Sherbet in the mid and a nice touch of rhubarb on the back end. Light crisp finish. Fabulous sweet fruity beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Bruce. Pours clear gold with a bubbly, off-white head. Lots of juicy, ripening fruits in the nose, hefty strawberry. Medium to big sweet flavor with sugary, candy-like fruit character, some jammy strawberry, slight rhubarb tang. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Sugary fruit finish, more ripe strawberry, mild tartness, general berries. A sugary fruit beer but enjoyable in its way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours murky brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, fruit punch, artificial strawberry, candy, strawberry jelly and rhubarb fool. The taste is is sweet, candy, strawberry sweets, tangy, alcohol hit, some acidity, rhubarb pie and sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Perhaps a touch sweet for my liking, but a grade A fruit beer anyhow. Sherbet aspect and acidity brings it back in line.
