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 feed and rhubarb pies!

    Pours translucent strawberry, minimal head. Aroma yields tart strawberry with hints of rhubarb and malt. Flavor features sweet and tart strawberry, rhubarb, raw malt. Texture offers fair body and lively fizz. Drink your fruit and vegetables!

    Pours a darker burnt orange with a one finger head that keeps for a while. Body is semi-clear with a ton of carbonation. Aroma is very heavy on the strawberries and has that rhubarb tartness to it. The fruitiness remind me of those gushers fruit snacks I had when I was a kid. Taste is very much of strawberries and cream. The rhubarb does not in any way over power it but just gives it a nice tartness. Finishes off nice and sweet. Awesome as always!

    A sincere thank you to heybeerman for the New Glarus hook-up. Shared at a small tasting and everybody was pleasantly happy including myself. The New Glarus knack for top tier fruit beers continues with this tasty offering. Fresh strawberries, a hint of cream, and tangy rhubarb are in perfect harmony atop a light biscuity malt backing. Crisp quenching mouthfeel, near perfect as always. Nothing too wild going on in here, but all the players are playing nicely.

    Expected this to be another NG fruit beer knockout but it really wasn't. A greeat nose, full of the advertised strawberries. The flavor has a bit of rhubarb sourness and hints at strawberry, but unfortunately its a bit flat, not as dynamic as serendipity or Belgian red. A light summer beer, full of fizz, and certainly has its place, just not what I was hoping for.

    First pour courtesy of PfoxyJohn... AT THE BAR(N)! This was one of MANY beers drank during our vacation visit to Wisconsin and oHIo. Light pinkish orange pour, slight head, some lacing. The aroma and flavor are the stars with this beer: Fresh tart strawberries, light rhubarb, tart and wild yeasts, this smells more like fresh cut tart strawberries more than anything, and not overpoweringly so. Then the taste: damn near just like the aroma - fresh cut starawberries but not sweet - tart! and like very lightly sweetened strawberry spread. The rhubarb compliments and maintains the tartness and body, and yes, it does have notes of strawberry rhubarb pie. Oh the life! So good to share this with good friends, and my wife absolutely loved this brew. Another well-crafted ale from the Careys and New Glarus. Bravo! and thanks for giving me my first taste of this Mr. Pfister. Cheers!
