COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Teased from the loam by the kiss of the Sun. Moms 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 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 Ill 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.

Original 11/13 rating; Ar - 7 Ap - 4 Fl - 8 P - 4 O - 16 Rate 3.9. 2017 rerate: Pulpy, hazed rusty blood color along with a pink/tan head. Strawberries and pale malt mingle in the aromas along with a hint of stomach acid. I seem to be catching some other fruits as well, such as tart cherries and a few other berries. Light sweet start that is quickly whisk away by tart rhubarb that is quite similar to tart cherries. Very light on the palate, which along with the tartness leaves the mouth watering. Seem to have a grainy finish this time around.

12oz bottle shared. Dark cloudy ruby red pour. Huge fruit aroma. Taste like fresh strawberries and rhubarb. So juicy and delicious. They nailed it.

sloth (2876) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2016
small tan head with a fair retention and a stringy lace. Looks like a glass of muddy water, one ugly sumbitch. Lotsa strawberry in the aroma and flavor dept. Medium bodied, little crunchy. Rhubarb is noticeable in an earthy, slightly vegetal way and actually helps pound the sweetness of this beer down a skoche i do believe, thank Gambrinus! Otherwise a sweet, strawberry, ugly ass beer. Not sure how it rates this high or if its the age killing it or maybe a lot of you folks just like sweet fruity beers like the kiddies do. Got me. Anyways, props to MOTORTODDHEAD for the bottle that was delivered in a trade many , many moons ago. Thanks bro, love ya!

ineedbeer (2121) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is fruity with a rhubarb and strawberry character. Moderately strong syrupy, honey notes with a touch of a wet cardboard character. More rhubarb than strawberry with a faint phenolic note. Pours a murky, light brown color with a bit of a tan hue and a medium sized, fairly thick, tan head that slowly recedes to thin film that lingers on the edges. Light lacing and no legs. Flavor is very sweet with some moderate honey, caramel and syrup notes. Moderate rhubarb notes with some lighter strawberry character. Some light phenolic notes. A touch of wet cardboard notes. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, the age hasnt helped this beer, but I am not sure it was very good in the first place. The beer is very sweet with some moderate fruit notes. Moderate oxidation and sweet malt notes.

Alengrin (5112) - BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2016
At Hopishops B.U.M.B. 2016, shared by 77ships, cheers! Lightly lacing, egg-white, moussy head, lightly hazy orangey blonde robe with warm amberish hue. Aroma breathes a ton of ripe, sweet strawberries, home made strawberry jam, rhubarb stewed with lots of white sugar to soften the tartness like my grandmother used to do, more subtle notes of marmelade, apple cake, vanilla, banana and white bread lurking underneath. Very emphatic sweet strawberry flavor and though sugary, still feeling natural, not cloying as in an industrial sweet fruit beer; the sourish rhubarb flavor sits underneath but its hard to spot and could have been more outspoken if only to provide balance against the sweetness. Medium carbo (could have been a bit fizzier for such a sweet dessert beer, to my taste at least), some soapy wheatiness and soft, fluffy breadiness provide an underlying structure that carries the artisanal strawberry jam sweetness onwards. Slight earthiness in the very end, with the sweetness sticking a little bit to the throat. Like many of these New Glarus fruit beers apparently, this is very sweet, but in an elegant, refined kind of way - comparing this and the others with cheap industrial sweet fruit beers would be a lot like comparing grandmothers sweet strawberry cake with sticky, plasticy, industrial strawberry-flavored candy. It know which of those two I would prefer.

MarcoDL (4626) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2016
At Hopishop 2016. Aroma of strawberry jam and candy. Flavor has sweet syrupy strawberry and candy jam. These New Glarus beers are a bit of a letdown.

77ships (9267) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2016
750 ml. bottle sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Nose is hilariously heavy on sweet strawberry jam, quite awesome, stupid sweet as usual for a New Glarus fruit beer, pure strawberry jam really. Taste is bit empty especially compared to the smell, bit metallic upfront, sparkling water, strawberry jam, some faint lemon way in the back, bit empty tasting. Body is lightly metallic strawberry jam diluted with sparkling water. If only it tasted like it smelled. I have no idea where the Rhubarb is.

A: Very cloudy red/brownish coloured with a big off white/pinkish head N: Strawberry! Hint of raspberry and red currant. T: Strawberry bomb! Light rhubarb as well. O: Very much strawberry and a small hubt of sweet rhubarb. VERY well balanced flavours! Perfect carbonation. Super nice!

Three bottles consumed over 2013-late 2015. Usually I had this in a NG flute; I think its good to start it out fairly cold, especially if youre 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, its so fresh, so bold, so aromatic that the whole room lights up and I cant do anything but keep smelling, keep nosing, keep loving...its a bit less sweet on both the nose and tongue than the Belgian Red generally is, Id 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 Im 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. Theres also snatches of vanilla and caramel in here, and a hint of lime. I probably liked this more than the bottles Ive had of Serendipity, though I had that on draught once and it was otherworldly; as it is, its just another "typically" great experience from the American master of fruit beers. Im sorry to say it looks as if this might be gone for good; its listed as such on the website, and the clerk at the brewery a couple of weeks ago told me he didnt 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!
