COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours a nice cloudy brown, smells of sweet sweet strawberry. Slightly sour smelling, tastes more of the same but SWEET, SWEET strawberry. Tastes like beer and berry juice, not enough in the sour department. Not terrible but too damn sweet and juice-like. ---Rated via my tastebuds and my brain.

Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma has some huge strawberry notes as well as a hint of earth. The flavor is more of the same. I get some big strawberry jam, as well as a hint of rhubarb. There is also a little bit of tartness in there that really makes things come together nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.

750ml bottle Hazy dingy pink Wispy off white head. Huge slight sour strawberries. Tart slightly funky rhubarb and strawberry flavors. Late sour funky trailer. A definite cousin to the Belgian Red and their Raspberry Tart.

Bottle: Reddish brown with a cream color head. Amazing smell of homemade strawberry jam. A virtual liquid fruit roll-up. You can detect a little bit of the sour in there as well. AMAZING!!!!!

beernbourbon (1309) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Pour is cloudy copper with a hint of red and a medium white head. Aroma really is loaded with strawberry and rhubarb. Not much else in the aroma. Flavor is tart up front followed by fruity strawberry and rhubarb. This delivers on what it promises. The flavor is so fruity that it tastes artificial. Not sure I love it, but it’s true to its name.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Bottle thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a murky brown with bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly to leave light lace. Aroma is straight up strawberry, amazingly fresh nose. Taste follows with a hint of earth on the back end, a hint of tartness but very mild. Good stuff, I wonder if it ages to become more sour.

Fukito (751) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 26, 2014
Pour murky brownish caramel color with a small but lasting beige head.Faint strawberry/ yeasty/ funky aroma with a nice strawberry flavor and a slight vegetable touch. Not as intense as other New Glarus beers in terms of acidity/ flavor. Medium to light palate, refreshing and very easy to drink. Guess I like the other fruit beer from them better... But even though this is a bit blander, it kind of grows on you and you start to get more flavors. Could see myself grilling in the summer with this one.

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Cloudy brownish color out of the bottle with a nose that does remind me of a strawberry rhubarb pie. Nice natural strawberry flavor with some rhubarb custard and pie crust notes. Just enough tartness to reference the fruit without being sour. Another very nice fruit beer from New Glarus.

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Cloudy reddish pour from 22oz bottle at the lake. Wow. Where to start. Aroma is strawberry Carmel sweetness. Crazy smell like a pile of fruits. Tart malty and syrupy strawberry taste. Just too much wine cooler for me.

teemoney (77) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Poured from bottle into fluted glass. Opaque reddish-brownish color with fizzy off-white head that dissipates completely over time. Smells like a jar of strawberry jam. Taste has some strawberry and rhubarb (of course), with plenty of tart-ness. Feel is a bit fizzy. Overall, a pretty tasty fruit brew. I like some of the others better, though.
