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!

fidelis83 (2005) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a medium ruddy brown with a 3 finger, creamy tan head that has great retention. Aroma is huge with the aroma of strawberry rhubarb pie, it really is unbelievable how well they recreated that amazing aroma. Maybe a bit light on the rhubarb, but I’ll let it slide, because it smells amazing. Throw in some extra floral and fruity notes and some extra tartness, maybe a little lactic acid twinge. Flavor is full on strawberry rhubarb pie right up front, more rhubarb in the flavor than the aroma, complete with nice toasty flavors, a little vanilla, nice, sweet floral notes, lactose-like sweetness, a little toffee, cereal and a nice little extra tartness bringing up the finish. Medium, juicy body with a creamy entry, light, spritzy and blanketing carbonation and nice acidic tingle coming in midway. Fantastic all around. Another great fruit beer from New Glarus.

Salmoniform (1004) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Poured from 750 to glass. Murky, muddy brownish hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is fruity strawberry, straw, sugar, slight acid. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a tart following. Overall this is one of the better strawberry brews that I’ve had.

radarsock (1001) - Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 750 mL bottle supplied by Stine - many thanks! Split three ways, and served at 51°. To semi-clean (kidding: was quite clean) oversized snifter, it pours a burnt carrot orange with which a snowy white head 1 finger in length stood. Murky. Aromas of strawberry rhubarb pie, Virgil’s Peach Lemonade, light candi sugar, fresh mint, kiwifruit, black limes, seaweed, minerals, unripe cranberries, and papaya. Tastes the with the addition of mashed banana, caramel apples, and American yeast. Ridiculously fruity. Love this. And I knew I would. New Glarus knows how fruit beers are supposed to taste. I could easily drink five of these in under an hour.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 14, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by Radarsock, much thanks on this Andrew!! Dark hazy brown color thin head, low retention. Holy hell that is a shit ton of strawberry! Aroma is bursting with smashed strawberry and weak soured rhubarb. Damn I Inhaled the aroma for a good 2 minutes before I even sipped it.

Flavor is just as luscious as the aroma. Abundant amount of strawberries with very mild tartness in the finish. The flavor is off the wall good for a 4 % brew. Just crazy juicy strawberries and the mild rhubarb is so nice to balance the berry sweetness, just great tasting.

WillRunForBeer (862) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle shared by Radarsock, thanks Andrew! Pours oxidized strawberry brown with a white head. Aroma is straight up strawberry, like opened by a container of tart frozen strawberries. Taste is delicious, backbone is russet apple, with lots of natural strawberry, seeds and all, on top.

mabel (6777) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
[6058-20131115] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Strawberry fruit jam aroma is strong and beautiful. Hazy, brown amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Super strawberry flavour and seeds has a ton of fruity notes and finishes like a Yop. Medium body is fruity tart, "not Cantillon tart". Delicious!! (10/4/9/4/17) 4.4

neepsntatties (1243) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Colour...cloudy amber with a thin white head. Nose...a big brimming bowl of strawberry-rhubarb compote! Palate...very strawberry-rhubarb-y to start, but then it dissipates rapidly and theres a bit of metal at the back of the palate. Still, a dandy when it’s quite cold!
