Small Town Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb

I tend to get up earlier than Val on weekends because I’m so used to getting up for work. I’ve been trying to catch up on “Live PD” while she’s asleep and I update the blog. If you haven’t watched it, it’s really interesting.

ABV: 5.9%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Sometimes rhubarb gets a bad rap. It’s a vegetable that masquerades as a fruit and almost always gets paired up with its much more celebrated friend, strawberry. Well, rhubarb finally gets half the stage with Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb, a flavored craft brew that reminds of you the fresh pies Mom used to take out of a box she got at the local bakery. The perfect balance of sweet and tart, this beer is made with real strawberry and rhubarb juices. This brew is so authentic, you can start fighting now for the last slice….err…bottle.”

Random: This was a beer that I picked up for Val.

This beer poured with a very small white head that went away by the time I took the picture. The body was clear and bright pink in color with a large amount of carbonation visible. The nose was all strawberry and no rhubarb or any other notes. The taste was sweet strawberry syrup and simple syrup with a touch of rhubarb. The sweetness was cloying and needed something to balance it out. The body was on the lighter side with too much carbonation. It had a quick finish with strawberry. A bottle of this was $1.83, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This was definitely too sweet for me, but if you’re into really sweet sodas, you would probably like this.
