Pours a cloudy burnt red with a small tan head. Not much lacing or retention, and moderate carbonation.
Huge fresh cherry aroma, sweet and tart with some earthiness. Smells like real cherries, not candy impostors.
Cherry flavor is upfront - sweet and tart. Malt backbone is sturdy enough to keep the cherries from overpowering in a bad way. Like the aroma a touch of earthiness is present, along with some faint oak. Finishes dry with lingering cherry notes. Delicious.
Light bodied, delicate and crisp on the tongue. Perfect level of carbonation. Incredible drinkability, especially for a fruit beer - that bottle went quick. Time to find someone to trade with.
Big thanks to unclejedi for sending this as part of my Powerball winnings.

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.
