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!

Pours dark red lightly cloudy. Smells like a bowl of strawberries. Nice strawberry /rhubarb taste. Not too sweet. A little heavier on the tounge that some of the other New Glarus fruit beers. Overall excellent.

Three bottles consumed over 2013-late 2015. Usually I had this in a NG flute; I think itís good to start it out fairly cold, especially if youíre going to do the whole bottle by yourself (which I did with 2 of them) over an evening. It poured a murky brick-red to muddy brown, with plenty of fizzy head that died off fairly quickly...nose is, as expected, strawberry-rhubard, duh! But of course as with other NG fruit beers, itís so fresh, so bold, so aromatic that the whole room lights up and I canít do anything but keep smelling, keep nosing, keep loving...itís a bit less sweet on both the nose and tongue than the Belgian Red generally is, Iíd say, but perhaps more sweet than the Raspberry Tart or Serendipity, but what really stands out special about this one in comparison to the other masterpieces is the malt extraction, this has a fullness and biscuit-pie crust malt that provides a fuller and less acidic body than Iím used to, making it simultaneously more quaffable at once in a glass or two, but a bit tougher to consume when talking the whole bottle. Thereís also snatches of vanilla and caramel in here, and a hint of lime. I probably liked this more than the bottles Iíve had of Serendipity, though I had that on draught once and it was otherworldly; as it is, itís just another "typically" great experience from the American master of fruit beers. Iím sorry to say it looks as if this might be gone for good; itís listed as such on the website, and the clerk at the brewery a couple of weeks ago told me he didnít think it was coming back. But one never knows - the Apple Ale was out of circulation for a few years at one point. Bring it back, Dan!

Bottle. Pours murky pinkish brown with medium light pinkish brown head which quickly recedes. Aroma is loaded with strawberries. Taste is strawberry sweet, slight rhubarb tart, a hint of sweet sugar.

Small yellowish head over fully hazy red-brown beer. Strawberry ice-cream, milky, even a bit vomit-like smell. Milky, lactic, again strawberry ice cream, if watered-down. Medium bodied, quite slick. Another NG fruit I really canít like.

Once again New Glarus makes a fantastic fruit beer. The strawberry and rhubarb together makes for a wonderful concoction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 could never imagine a "strawberry jam" beer would taste like this one...quite a pleasant surprise to have tasted a beer that is essentially a fruit beer but did more than just fruits. the freshness, light sweet sour of strawberry after fermentation just came together nicely---if you ever see this beer--grab it--or throw me a line...:) 草莓大黄酿制&#

Taste pour at my birthday party 12/6. Nice amount of strawberry, lightly tart. New Glarus never fails.

"The greatest slice of strawberry rhubarb pie ever served. In a glass." Those were the notes I entered into my phone on the night I tasted Strawberry Rhubarb. While I want to provide a few more details, I feel that statement captures the essence of this brew about perfectly. Appearance is totally unimpressive: hazy (almost muddy) with just a little head. Thatís the only knock - if you can call it that - against this beer. Smells and flavors are unreal. Juicy, lightly tart fruit with a hint of malt. Feel is lively and smooth. My first New Glarus brew and it sure as hell wonít be my last.

(Thanks, Josh! "StFun") Bottle. A- Strawberry puree, rhubarb, slightly sweet. A- Brown color, murky liquid, off brown head. T- Rhubarb, strawberry. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, long beautiful finish. O- When I first got into craft I loved fruit beers, with all the sweetness and artificial fruit flavors. Then I learned that they actually really sucked. Now, this beer came across my path. Holy moly. This smelled like my grandmaís award winning strawberry rhubarb pie. The nose translates into the palate. Very natural tasting and balanced. Not tart, not bitter, but just right. Wow. I canít say enough good things. The only bad thing is it looked like dirty sewage water. That hurt it overall a little, but otherwise this is as good as you will find for not only a fruit beer but a beer in general.
