750mL bottle. Poured clear, brighter orange with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up apple cider and rhubarb sourness plus peppery notes over sweet honey and some berries.. warmer honey and earthy notes emerged as it warmed.. smelled like it was going to be quite sour. The flavor found sweet honey, vanilla, and raspberry at the core, with vinegary notes, cloves, and a touch of metal around.. picked up a lot of tasty rhubarb on the long, dry, belly-warming finish. Medium-plus bodied and quite sour on the palate.. very dry too.. there was a whole helluva lot going on, and a lot of it was really good, but I’m on the fence about whether it worked for me.

750 ml bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy dark yellow/amber color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a fine ring. The aroma is somewhat tart with lemon, rhubarb and touch of funk. The flavor is sour with melons, lemons, rhubarb, honey, cashews and sour dough breads. The palate was full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished short and clean. Overall: The whole idea of brewing with rhubarb intrigued me so I put it on my wants list not really expecting to get it. This beer is a bit weird, but maybe I’m just as weird cause I really liked this.

Really like this. Sour yet smooth rhubarb taste on palate is very pleasant. Not a beverage with dinner but great to share with friends or savor while reading. Wish I was closer to Olvalde farm to ensure I always have this in stock.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden honey with a thin beige head and a sharp fruit aroma. There is a sweet honey and light malt flavor with a mildly sour rhubarb finish. Interesting.

Nice sour nose. Taste is lovely sweet and sour. Rhubarb is sour people and this is exactly what it is meant to taste like. Dont understand the hate for this one. If you dont want a sour beer dont buy a rhubarb one, go get a raspberry one.

750ml bottle. Poured a yellow color with a tinge of orange. Aroma was vegetal, vinegar, with plenty of rhubarb. I’m really not a huge fan of rhubarb on its own, so I was hoping that this wasn’t massive rhubarb. Flavor was about the same. Unfortunately not a fan.

brilliant gold, thinnest white bubbled ring. Nose is vinegar, light apple, honey, paint thinner. Flavor is more vinegar, thin spice, tea, even in body. Thin, watery, dull, and offensive. Messy.

The beer is orange with minimal head. The imparts booze, hints of nail polish, odd. The flavor brings sweet nail polish and fruit. WTF? This beer is just weird and wrong. Rhubarb is there but doesn't fit in. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
