Enjoyed via a bottle from 1st Street Liquor in St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a cloudy gold with a lacy white head. The aroma is effervescent and sour with hints of tangerine and biscuits. The taste is tingly on the tongue and tastes like a honey biscuit with tart marmalade. The texture is like melted butter and silky smooth on the finish with a sweet and sour aftertaste. Hints of rhubarb. Very easy drinking for 10% and just delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Sampled from 22-oz bomber during Heritage Liquor’s Beer Geek Christmas 2011 in Maplewood, MN. Pours a hazy light golden amber colored brew with a fizzy and fluffy white head with some excellent retention and leaves behind thick lacing. Aroma of honey, Belgian yeast, some fruity esters, candi sugar, a hint of garden fresh rhubarb, and slight trace of clove. Taste is medium to full bodied, some sweet character with a Belgian dubbel character, candi sugar and more subtle rhubarb flavor with with a hint of light banana, yeast and a touch of clove. Carbonation is quite soft, well balanced. Finish is semi sweet with a mild rhubarb aftertaste followed by some light honey and Belgian yeast. I have tried over a dozen craft beers with rhubarb treatments that are either dry or too weedy. This is the first rhubarb infused Belgian ale that does not need any cherry to smoothen out the flavor. Outstanding! Would love to see this one become available on a regular basis.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours with an exciting level of head, appearance of a cider perhaps, golden tangerine with little clarity... strong sparkling head initially, dissipating almost instantaneously. Subtle bits of tangerine and pear on the nose, think Belgian tripel, rhubarb of course. Taste is fantastic, it’s amazing how much character the rhubarb aging brought to the table... again, tangerine... the citrus also seems to hold on a lot longer than it does in the original, essentially brought the focus from sweet to tart. The only body here comes from its relatively high carbonation, otherwise it drinks similar to a cider. Yet another home run from Ovalde, I’ve never even heard of rhubarb being used in beer but clearly it fits the part, bravo!

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a somewhat clumpy white foam like head that leaves a spotty film. Aroma is tart rhubarb honey/malt. Taste is fantastic with tart sour fruity rhubarb and honey with malt and faint funk. Palate is medium slick and a little sticky with a drying finish. This is a fantastic beer with an awesome tart sourness!

Bottle. We should have gotten more than one bottle, this was so good. Pours to a murky straw colored body with a white head. The aroma is very much rhubarb. Like a tangy rhubarb pie, flaky biscuits, and honey. Kind of reminds me of a Kolache. Very complex with a smooth blended taste. No way is this 10%, this beer is so smooth. Exotic and amazing. Sour even on the aroma.

750 corked and caged big thanks to Matt! Bottle opened with little fuss and the pour has a dark golden color with a thin cap of white bubbles. Aroma has light acidity, honey sweetness, flowers, real rhubarb, and a light bitter twang in the back. Mouth feel is medium but surprisingly thick for a sour beer and there is steady gentle carbonation. Flavor is where the rhubarb really jumped right out and the honey lends a fullness that gives the illusion of drinking pureed rhubarb. There is a nice tartness more than a heavy sour and mixing it up with the honey makes for a very interesting flavor collision that mixes with some yeasty flavors. I am reminded of mangoes while drinking it as some fruity bits emerge as it warms. One of the most interesting beers I have ever had.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour, lasting champagne like carbonation and aroma similar to the original, honey and not much else. Flavor is a nice malty backbone and nice tart rhubarb and a little bread and sugar cookie on the finish. I really liked this more than the original, reminded me of my mom’s homemade rhubarb crisp.

A rich golden pour, big white head. Caramel malt, honey, crackers, some tart fruitiness. Flavor is an interesting mix of caramel malts, tart fruit, yeast. Fun brew to try.
