 Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s Good Food, was inspired to collaborate with Patrick Rue and The Bruery after enjoying a homemade Rhubarb Raspberry Pie. The rhubarb’s fruity sourness tempered with the sweetness of the fresh raspberries and the wheat crust, begged to be bottled up in the form of a bubbly beer. Keeping the original pie recipe in mind, specialty grains were chosen to mimic the crust, and rhubarb and  raspberries were used in varying stages of the brewing and fermentation process. The resulting beer is reminiscent of a fresh country pie, cooling on a farmhouse windowsill.

Pours dark thick orange amber with a white head. Aroma brings big sweet and tart resiny berry. Flavor starts out big berry then is dry and super tart.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours murky rosy amber with a thin ring of head. Nose is berries, a bit of tartness, and I guess some rhubarb bitterness. Malty dry bread underneath. Taste is tart and fruity with dry malt and raspberries. Not pungent berries, and with a fruity bitterness that’s the rhubarb I guess. Fluffy, well-carbonated body.

The beer has a dark ruby body with an inch and a half of bubbly, beige head. The head hisses and fades rapidly to nil, giving a still appearance. The aroma does indeed offer both raspberries and rhubarb, each easily discernible. Sour presence is evident immediately. Puckering and piquant. This is my second time opening a bottle of this, and I’m definitely enjoying it again. I perceive less bread crust / pie character and more berry wild ale. Nice balance between the rhubarb and raspberry. Delicious. I’m looking forward to enjoying this nightcap.

On tap at the Bruery. It pours a reddish auburn color with no head. The aroma is strong with rhubarb, berries and tart pie. The flavor is thick with sour berries, alcohol and honey. Nice sour fruity kick at the end. I’ve had a couple rhubarb beers before, but this one actually tasted like it. Good stuff.

750, capped. Thanks j! Pours a murky ruddied medium amber with no head or lace. Sweet fruity nose, tart and jammy both. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Seeds, flesh, and acid of bright highly present fruit. Long tart acidic finish.

Pours a murky copper, aroma of berries, rhubarb and oak. Taste is earthy, berries, metalic, soapy. Not great

Draft. Hazy reddish amber pour, with an dirty red off-white head. Tart and quite strong acidity, lots of raspberry juice, light crackery notes, lemon, and some sweetness. Nice fruited sour, I would drink this again.

Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Hazy slightly orange pour at the tasting room. A bit of white head. Slightly muddled nose. Taste is interesting and is growing on me. More bread and yeast character. Slightly tart, a bit of raspberry but the rhubarb gets lost.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of rhubarb, raspberry and cranberry. The flavor is very similar. I get a ton of fruit notes as well as some toffee and a medium level of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

damn, this was a great beer- surprised it isn’t being talked about .. . deep pinkish plum tan .. . some solid foam .. . rhubarb, raspberry, and jam .. . very clean with a nice tartness .. . well done and fun like a naked party with strippers, but clean strippers- you know. high end escorts who do other things than just escort you to the annual company dinner. hell- so high end they don’t even do butt stuff. i’m talking high quality merchandise, man!......still whores though...
