Brown in color with a fingernail of beige around the rim and covering a third of the top. The aroma is of strawberry and oak. I’m tasting strawberry, kiwi, lightly tart ale, and woodsy oak. The mouth is dry and highly carbonated.

2020 Vintage; 7.2% ABV

Appearance: Cloudy amber color with slight reddish undertones. The beer has a a generous sized light beige head that slowly faded with nice lacing.

Smell: Upfront barnyard funk and mild hay/grassy notes.

Taste: Tart strawberry notes, moderate grassy/hay notes, and mild citrus notes. I also got a hint of leather in the taste profile. The beer has a moderately dry finish ending on some tart berry and citrus notes.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium-bodied with a fairly generous level of carbonation. The beer has a refreshing sparkling mouthfeel.

Overall: Another good Rare Barrel wild ale. The strawberries have a nice presence and there are enough other elements in the taste profile to produce a nice beer.

Bottle shared by dreadnaught33. Thanks Yanik!

Hazy copper brown body with a small off-white collar. Aromas of strawberries and lacto. Super sour strawberry pour. See what I did there? I'm a poet and I didn't even realize it. Anyhow, this is tasty.

Strawberry beers always send up a red flag to me. Too many bad experiences with plastic-tasting beers. Fortunately, this one was not off at all. Light golden brown pour, cloudy, with a small white head. Crisp grainy aroma, light caramel, essence of strawberry. I think more sweet than sour in the taste, balance with a good amount of funk, ripe strawberry, but not overdone, light malts, grain husks. Light-medium body, and a good drinker, probably one of the better strawberry beers I've had, and the best RB beer I've had so far.

by brentk56 from North Carolina

Appearance: Pours a hazy peach/orange; modest head and some spots of lace hang around

Smell: Somewhat dry and funky with strawberries, of course

Taste: Packed with strawberry flavor, slightly jammy, somewhat tart and a bit of funk; the sweeter flavors lead off and the tart sour ones bring up the rear

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: My first Rare Barrel beer; wish they kept longer hours as whenever I visit SFO on business during the week they are closed

In no way is this a "red sour." Good nose but some off flavor, almost burned or something.
