Woh! Impressive appearance. Muddy reddish brown with pink hints, but most of all: a monstruous cloud (darker than the rest of the pour) stalls scarily in suspension in my glass. Superior head, white, very sticky and foamy. Stellar visual. I'll be damned if this doesn't smell quite as good as the raspberry tart, of course both are very similar besides being made from distinct fruits. Pure cherry pie made of pure fresh cherries. Moreover, this is a children's puree, cherry flavoured, this stuff used to be good, admit it, we had some all over our clothes when we used to eat the stuff. Decadent dessert material, fresh, lovely, crisp, sweet, superb focus, chocolatey, caramelic.

Well this is very sweet, but damn, one can't help but help it and anyone who hates beer would love it. Just decadent pie flavor with restrained oakiness. My only complaint (severe judging) is that the acidity could be more pronounced as this is extremely sweet. It tasted like it was baked.. spicy with vanilla notes. And a "wow" creamy velvety body with a surprisingly above average carbonation, biting actually. Legendary beer from the world's best non-lambic fruit flavored beers brewer hands down. Thanks again Nexxus.

Poured into a tasting glass. A dark, ruby color with a finger of creamy looking white head. Smell is pure cherry. A malt sweetness is lurking in the background, but it's hard to detect anything behind the huge cherry presence. The taste is only cherry juice. I'm not sure this can be called beer. I could drink this in the morning with my toast. Like with the other New Glarus beers of this ilk, I'm finding the 4 or so ounces I consumed to be a good amount. The sweetness and one noted-ness was just getting to me by the end. Still an absolute killer offering.
