As well as having a problem with the amount of beer from the Bruery, it seems I also have a decent amount of New Glarus. How are those for problems to have, buddy? Unfortunately, I am not skilled enough to make some awesome pie to go along with this. But really, what do you expect from me?
New Glarus Strawberry Rhubarb
Appearance- A very hazy amber/dark orange color with a tint of red. A tan creamy head sticks around after the pour.
Smell- Predictably, a lot of strawberry and rhubarb. Very rich smell with what seems to be a slight cherry. Underneath the fruit is a candy sweetness with a crockery/cereal character.
Taste- Reminiscent of strawberry rhubarb pie in the beginning. A sweet fruit character with moderate strawberry character (slightly surprising seeing how hard it is to get a real strawberry taste in a beer). Tart character picks up in the middle and is complimented by a sugary sweetness. A slight cereal taste in the finish.
Mouthfeel- Medium-thin body with a spritzy carbonation on the tongue. Leaves a lingering sweetness.
Overall- Another great fruit beer from New Glarus. At times I expected to get a strawberry seed since it tasted so fresh. Would have loved to have this one with a slice of pie. Someone make that happen.
