Co-reviewed with Jesus Quintana
I gave it a 4, Jesus gave 4. Great reddish color with a touch of chill haze, keeps about the same head which is not that much, but has fantastic lacing, with sheets adhering to the glass on every sip.
Smell, me 4.5, Jesus 4. Smells like a wonderful carbonated fruit juice.
Taste. Me 4.5, Jesus, 5. You would expect a syrupy content coming from a beer made of fruit, but yet I gotta say it's almost wine-wooler-esque, with a finish of beer. A strange descriptor, to be sure, but make no mistake, this stuff tastes damn good.
Syrupy, and very tart, yet still very sweet. Lingering sweet and sour cherries. Me 4, Jesus 4.
Overall drinks GREAT. I give it a five, and Jesus concurs.
With the weighted average, I give Jesus the tie-breaker on the weighted average, for taste.
Hail New Glarus!

750 ml bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Gifted to me from my mom on a recent trip to Wisconsin. My first of the glorious fruit beers from New Glarus Brewing Co., and my first review of a New Glarus beer. Expectations are excellent based on this beer's high ratings.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a bright juicy cherry red colored body. Just over a finger of pinkish tinted foam for a head. Leaves some thin lacing behind. Looks beautiful.
S - The smell is beautiful & natural. Tart, juicy, ripe, natural cherries dominant the aroma.
T - This thing is truly some next level type shit right here. Cherries, cherries, cherries. Sticky, lightly sugary, perfectly tart. So juicy and delicious.
M - The feel is smooth, fluid, and juicy. Perfectly sweet & tart. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation.
Overall, this has got to be the most delicious and most authentic fruit beer I've had to date. I'd say it is even much more cherry forward than the Drie Fonteinein Intense Red Oud Kriek. Absolutely delicious & highly recommended.
