Fluffy frothy pinkish-brown head atop a murky reddish brown brew.

Huge smell of fresh strawberries.

It really is just like strawberry-rhubarb pie. A bit of a sour cherry taste to the end (the rhubarb?) slightly reminiscent of belgian red. Somewhat lacking in complexity or zest to the finish.

Carbonation a bit low for me.

I'd probably rank this as my lowest of the big 4 fruit beers, but it's still a nice diversion and gets big points for creativity.

750ml into a snifter.

A: Pours a murky, turbid, opaque cider-brown color with a small white head.

S: Awesome strawberry-rhubarb aroma. Not too sweet, with both the strawberry and rhubarb balanced together nicely.

T: Rush of sweet strawberry, lightly tart rhubarb, a hint of vanilla, grain, and yeastiness on the back end.

M: Medium-bodied with light yet crisp carbonation.

O: Don't let the appearance of this beer mislead you: it's damn tasty and not quite as cloyingly sweet as Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart.

Man, can these guys do fruit beers. This is so good. Shared with a couple of buddies and it was unanimous.
Nice red color, but pale enough to look more like strawberry. Smallish head.
Great strawberry aroma. So on that it almost seemed not real, but consistent and always pleasing. Just a slight tartness, which is also how the rhubarb shows in the flavor. Never any excess and always enjoyable. Just enough sweetness in flavor to enjoy the strawberry. Prickly carbonation, which seems right for style and heavy enough body, but also light enough.
I was quite sad as I finished this glass as I wanted to keep enjoying both the aroma and flavors.
So good.

A - Very muddy looking brown with pinkish, reddish hues. Good sized off white head that leaves patchy lacing.

S - Smells like strawberry jam. Sweet with a hint of tartness.

T - Fresh, ripe strawberries. Sweet strawberry upfront, followed by tart rhubarb with a lingering fruitness. Someone mentioned it tastes like a Snapple and not sure I would disagree.

M - Light with spritzy carbonation. Very creamy and interesting mouthfeel.

D - Amazing the strawberry/rhubarb flavor and aroma in this beer. Only complaint is it is a bit Snapple like.
