Notes: Fresh and snappy, this is a version of 312 with rhubarb juice. Slightly sweet with a touch of tart, we love it, and we hope you do too. Drink it fresh.

16 ounce can - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a good, deep yellow, just a bit of haze to it. Rather slender, white head.

Smell: Fairly benign aroma, mellow wheat, low citrus, a very light implied sweetness and an equally light touch of tart rhubarb.

Taste: Mild, mild breadiness with a light wheat quality and kiss of grain. Minimally sweet. Modest hop character, just a bit of citrus, spice. Well, the can sure is pink. There're rhubarbs on the label. Even the word is in all caps. RHUBARB. Yet, the flavoring is really light, just a faint bit of tartness. Closes out just as mild as it began.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly soft mouthfeel.

Overall: A bit pricey for what you get. Easy on the rhubarb. Though, if it's overlaying 312, any more would squelch the beer underneath. Ultimately, I found it to be merely fine. Fine.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of rhubarb are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light to moderate flavors of rhubarb with underlying notes of raw wheat.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and makes for a nice selection during the summer months. I liked how the rhubarb wasn't overpowering in the taste.

I love rhubarb so I was intrigued by this version of 312. It is moderately tart with lemon and doughy flavors and a somewhat faint but recognizable rhubarb flavor. Hopefully I'll run across fresh cans of this in the future.

Released 3/4/19; drank 3/24/19 @ the Yarchives.

See-through dull orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big off-white head; a thick curtain of frothy lace.

Rhubarb, honeyed grain & faint strawberry notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Rhubarb & faint strawberry flavors up front; honeyed grain & dry grain notes on the finish.

Pretty unique for a session ale; it's not amazing but it's certainly worth a quaff.

16oz can poured into a pint glass shows a clear yellow-gold body and almost floats a 1/4in fluffy head that disappears to a whispy cap and leaves erratic lacing.

Muted floral aroma.

Flavors of rhubarb, cracker, a sense of wheat, and earthiness. Immediately after the initial hit of tart rhubarb the taste levels out to just beer.

Mouthfeel is crisp, and leans medium with a drying finish.

This would be great in the summer, especially at 4.2%
