750 ml wax dipped bottle poured into a tulip.
4% ABV

A - Muddy pond water brown, the color leaves something to be desired but, the combination of strawberries and rhubarb obviously don't look sexy. That said, the loose and bubbly head of foam that tops the beer retains aroma and looks nice.

S - Earthy rhubarb notes peek through the bushel of ripe strawberries this beer offers with the classic brown ale malty notes from the fruit beers providing a base. Dusty and rustic in aroma, this fruit beer isn't as vibrant and explosive as the others New Glarus produces but it smells delicious in its own right.

T - Firm, juicy strawberry flavor explodes across the tongue like taking a bite right through the fruit itself. Tart notes of rhubarb follow through before the beer finishes with a touch of caramel and bread sweetness from the malts.

M - Strawberry Rhubarb's initial sweetness and medium body is offset by light tartness and a dry finish, respectively, leaving the beer pleasing and balanced across the tongue!

O - The outpouring of strawberries in New Glarus' Strawberry Rhubarb is by far one of the best examples of a strawberry beer actually tasting like fresh fruit, not artificial flavoring, which is stellar. When it comes down to the brass tacks though, Strawberry Rhubarb, as fantastic as it is, still doesn't measure up to New Glarus' other award-winning fruit beers. I'll still opt for a Serendipity!
