look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - pours dark to light red with tons of carbonation. very light white/pinkish head that leaves a fantastic lace on the glass. Bubbles are spectacular on this too.

S - Aroma hints of apples and cranberries on the nose, and bouquets of fruits but the cherries really shine through on this. When I first tried this didn't expect the aroma to be as strong as it did, it's a very pleasant aroma.

T - Smell complements the taste, up front you get a nice sweetness and towards the end you get the sour tart cherries. Awesome dessert beer.

M - very nice complexity and balance with the sweetness and sour/tart. Carbonation goes well with the taste to tone down the sweetness of this.

O - Belgian Red is one of my favorites from New Glarus' line of Fruit Beer. This is great on a hot day or picnic, even a great dessert pairing beer. Nonetheless this beer is great definitely recommend to any lambic/fruit lover.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a ruby color with a slight brown tinge to it. A half finger tan head forms pretty quickly and leaves some solid lace behind.

S: Tons of ripe, juicy cherry notes, red cherry juice, a faint bit of spice, oak and some powdery malt.

T: Very similar to the smell. The juicy cherry flavor just explodes in your mouth with each sip. Red apple, just a touch of oak spice. There's an absolute ton of cherry sweetness in here, but luckily the carbonation is on point and keeps this from getting syrupy. A definite must try if you like fruit beers. Amazing stuff.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured with a nice red color. Head was small on my pour and did not last long.
Aroma is of cherries and more cherries. It is delicious! It is very sweet and fresh in a way. Very nice.
Taste is just like the aroma for the most part. It is more complex however. Definitely sweet cherry throughout. There are other notes playing minor parts. Some dark fruit comes trough and a little bit of woodiness. Mouth feel is very carbonated. Sour taste is also a minor player.
Overall, a great beer for after a meal. Very unique and a wonderful change of pace.
