750ml from ProperPinter, thanks!

Bottle reads Bottle Conditioned in July 2013, #768 of 929 - Best Consumed Fresh.

I'm an unabashed Smuttynose homer and I seriously dislike rhubarb. Fun.

S: This smells very strongly of plastic. There are notes of berry but the plastic was strong enough that I instinctively thought "oh, I'm going to get a headache". Once it was out of the bottle, the frust was much more present and there was more fruit and a good deal of rhubarb.

T: Thin flavor. After having found the strawberry short weiss to be very enjoyable this was a let down. It is fine. Nothing more. Dominated by rhubarb with very little strawberry at the end.

M: very nice, light and crisp. The flavor may not be great but it is delivered well.

O: It's a modest, low abv, uniquely flavored option, but not one I would have again.

Bottle from The Drinkery
Pours a turbid deep straw color with a smallish bone white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Smells of light grapefruit, strawberry, and a bit of plastic phenol. Very disappointing aroma! The flavor is light and tart with hints of lemon grapefruit and definitely a strawberry presence. There is that phenol there that reminds me of melted plastic. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a tart almost puckering mouthfeel. Huge disappointment for me here. If not for the plastic this would be a fantastic beer.
