Bottle poured into New Glarus flute

A: Two finger head (yellowish pink), reddish amber brown, lots of bubbles.

S: Sour cherries, some barnyard smell, jam

T: Delicious. I think this one is slightly sweeter than Rasp Tart. It's not really sour or tart, but it's definitely more tart than sour. Taste lingers in your mouth in a pleasant manner.

M: Perfect. Light to medium thickness with sharp carbonation. Less dry than Rasp Tart.

O: I prefer Raspberry Tart over this (Raspberry tart is more refreshing, although less complex), but NG never disappoints. World class beer for sure.

I have been wanting to try this for a while. The beer pours an interesting dark red to mahogany color with a nice cap of foam. The aroma of the beer is dominated by cherries with an air of dryness to it. Some earthy tones linger around as well. Carbonated and light on the palate. Clean cherry sings through. The sweetness is beautifully balanced by the tartness of the cherries. For such a cherry-laden brew, complexity abounds. It has wonderful depth and makes me want to keep drinking.

I have had this beer a couple of times and received one recently from Barrythebear, thank you!

A- Looks great, a very inviting burnt red. Not much in the way of carbonation at all and no lacing/film on the glass.

S- Nice pleasant cherries and a slight tartness. Really smells good but not overpowering.

T- Ahh, this is where it comes together. What you think is going to be indercarbonated turns out perfect. Wonderful sweet cherries with just a TOUCH of tart. Fantastic!

M- Very good for the style.

O- If I could get this beer regularly I would drink it all the time. Probably the best fruit beer that I have ever had with it being tied with Blushing Monk IMO.
