Great Divide Brewing Co. Strawberry Rhubarb Sour

What the brewers say

“Strawberry is the yin to rhubarb’s yang—the sweet to the tart. This beautiful partnership creates a beer that glows ruby in the glass, bursts with strawberry aroma, and bites with every sip.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Somewhat subtle with light berry, citrus, lemon, herbal, and bready, but you have to dig for the esters from the strawberry. Light caramel sweetness, and a little sweat-sock funk.”

Flavor: “Surprising! Clean strawberry flavor with a light follow-up of rhubarb. Jolly Rancher candy notes and a medium hops bitterness that add underlying citrus and herbal. The pie crust notes are apparent which makes sense given the ingredients. Quite dry.”

Overall: “Well-executed overall. Although a bit on the sweet side, the taste is excellent. The rhubarb and strawberry flavors come out well mixed with a medium caramel and malt body and moderate carbonation.”
