A- Baby snifter draft pour with a pink-orange body and a foamy off white half cm cap. Good head retention and a small ring leaves wide sheets of lace down the glass.

S- Strawberry rhubarb jam with basal beer pale grains and yeast beneath. Leans towards the rhubarb hinting at some tartness. Light strawberry fruit sugars.

T- As in the aroma most of the beer is about the added fruits but the base beer is clean and doesn't interfere or cause any awkwardness. Rhubarb shines with smaller hints of the berries and general fruit sugars that taste like a jam without any sweets. A lemony tartness compliments the fruit flavors and tastes like the natural tarts found in those fruits. Wheaty cereal grains, bread and slight esters beneath the fruits.

MF- Light and crisp body with just a bit of a puffy texture and a medium high level of carbonation. Tartness in the finish.

Jammy flavors of fresh fruits without sweetness but instead a great tartness that accentuates and improved the entire experience.

Poured on tap at the brewery. 6oz. taster fluted snifter.

Pink hued, slightly hazed, light pink tinted foamy head that settles slowly.

Tartness and grassy aroma, hint of fresh ripe strawberries and floral.

Flavor is tart, hint of crackery malt, rhubarb adds to the tartness and give a bit of a floral/spicy/herbal characteristic. The strawberry flavor is subtle, but fresh and bright.

Light and crisp body, moderate carbonation. Refreshing.

A nice summer brew with well constructed layers of subtle flavor.
