On-tap at the brewpub into a goblet.

A: Milky orange-pink body with just a whisp of white foam that collects into a ring and leave a spot or two of lace. Uninspiring.

S: Sweet + sour, with nothing but intense fruitiness: huge strawberry sweetness with some tart rhubarb backing it up. I guess that's what this beer is going for, and if so then it's pretty good.

T: The rhubarb jumps out at first with serious tartness and light spice, followed by rich strawberry sweetness. Straightforward and powerful, if a bit too sweet for me.

M: Soft, frothy body; slightly sticky.

O: My wife really enjoyed this one, and I would have as well if I'd been looking for a pure fruit beer. As a wheat beer with fruit added, this is completely out of whack. If all you want is strawberry-rhubarb juice, then give it a shot.

Pours a hazy yellow without much of a head on it. Smells is of strawberries and a bit if lemon with some wheat malts. Taste is similar...strawberry jam opens this up with and pretty much dominates the palate. There are some wheat malt tones and a touch of citrus hidden underneath. Pretty solid fruit beer - not nearly as artificial as some from this genre can be. Good summer beer!

Has the look of a tequila sunrise. Glowing orange and red layers of color. Minimal head and lacing.

Very sweet and ripe strawberry scent fills the nose.

A fruit flavor explosion in the mouth! I would basicallly compare it to drinking strawberry juice or puree. Not getting much in the way of rhubarb. Maybe a touch of bitterness because I know it's in there, but otherwise I couldn't pick it out. The strawberries dominate and they are oh so good and refreshing.

Very clean and juicy with little carbonation. Light-medium body.

It's almost hard to call this a beer. It's like fruit juice or a cocktail made with fruit juice. It is so damn tasty and refreshing for a hot summer day though. Town Hall knows how to use fruit in beer and this one really proves that. A must try if you can get it.
