Finally got my hands on one of these.
A: Beautiful deep red in color with shades of brown and some haze. Looks like unfiltered cranberry juice. Creamy, bubbly, frothy, slightly off-white head that leaves good lacing and retention.
S: Mix of tart/sour cherries, cream, sugar. Superb.
T: Well, as expected, it's all tart/sour cherry. A fizzy, well-carbonated, cherry beverage.
M: Incredibly refreshing, massive flavor, perfect fizzy finish. Never cloying or too sweet.
O: This is the definition of a fruit beer. Utterly incredible. Could drink at least one a week. Divine stuff.

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.
