4.45/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a wine glass
A: Pours a ruddy brown color with a ruby tint. There is a light tan head which fades fairly quickly to a ring of foam. Light, spotty lacing.
S: Delicious, tart cherries. The smell really leaps out of the glass. Incredibly fresh and real.
T: A cherry bomb to be sure. The dominant theme is light, tart cherry but I also pick up some apple and light caramel malt. Very refreshing. Sweet but the sweetness tastes like real fruit, not sugar.
M: Low level of carbonation contributes to a slick, smooth and refreshing drink. Sticky but not too sticky.
O: Delicious and refreshing. Tastes like real cherries, not like a lot of other fruit beers which are syrupy and overly, fakely sweet.

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.
