Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a fluted glass.

A: Mahogany color with small foamy head that dissipates quickly.
S: Tart cherries. Very similar to the smell of Luden's cherry flavored cough drops.
T: Sweet and tart cherry notes in the beginning, full cherry flavor in the middle and tartness in the ending.
M: Low to medium body with high carbonation.
D: This is pretty darn tasty if you're into cherries. A bit hard to finish the whole bottle, unless you really love cherries. Very good stuff. Try it, at least!

Got this as a gift from wellestone. Thank you, Chad. Shared with gwuilliums on Friday night. Poured chilled from 750ml bottle into tulip glasses.

A: Burgundy/red color. Decent head formation and retention. Carbonation persists. Some lacing.

S: Holy Mother of All that is Cherry! This does not smell like beer. It smells like a jar of tart cherries straight from Traverse City. Wow. I can not believe what I am smelling, then I read the bottle. "Over a pound of cherries in every bottle." Yep, now I get it. The one thing that I will say is that the smell is of of clean/fresh cherries. No cough syrup qualities at all.

T: Tastes like cherries topped with cherries and further topped by cherry topping. Really, just clean, concentrated tart cherry juice. I am not sure that this has any beer qualities at all.

M: This has a very nice medium body and excellent carbonation. But man, it is hard to get your head to stop thinking about the uber cherry taste in your mouth long enough to get the feel!

O: This beer is not for me, so, in keeping with my previous methods, when reviewing a beer that I would never drink again, I am rating this beer as straight 3's.

Co-reviewed with Jesus Quintana

I gave it a 4, Jesus gave 4. Great reddish color with a touch of chill haze, keeps about the same head which is not that much, but has fantastic lacing, with sheets adhering to the glass on every sip.

Smell, me 4.5, Jesus 4. Smells like a wonderful carbonated fruit juice.

Taste. Me 4.5, Jesus, 5. You would expect a syrupy content coming from a beer made of fruit, but yet I gotta say it's almost wine-wooler-esque, with a finish of beer. A strange descriptor, to be sure, but make no mistake, this stuff tastes damn good.

Syrupy, and very tart, yet still very sweet. Lingering sweet and sour cherries. Me 4, Jesus 4.

Overall drinks GREAT. I give it a five, and Jesus concurs.

With the weighted average, I give Jesus the tie-breaker on the weighted average, for taste.

Hail New Glarus!

Thanks to MbpBugeye for sharing this at the first Central Ohio Beer Tasting. I was really looking forward to this one.

Pours with a grayish head (similar to some better lambics). The beer is a blood-orange color that left spotty lacing.

Smells immediately of ripe black cherries. Very sweet.

The flavor was composed of honey, cherry syrup, and fresh wet fruit. Tangy but not full-on sour.

A very likable beer, insanely drinkable. I was wishing for more pretty quickly.

Notes:
A lot of people seem to hate on Lindemans for its sweetness, but this beer is nearly as sweet. If you like this the only reason you ought not to like Lindemans is its style categorization. Given that Belgian Red resides in a style that this site lists as "experimental and temporary" it isn't that hard of a stretch to think of this as a really sweet lambic.

Don't get me wrong - this is overall more likable than most Lindemans, but they're more similar than some would have you think imo.

Although I have had this beer many times over the last 7 or 8 years, I never felt rushed to review it, figuring I'd just get it next time.

The time is now, after we split a five year old bottle last weekend (thanks so much Marty) in the backyard.

I was amazed that the fruit presence was still so prevalent, the cherries as fresh and juicy as the day they went into the barrels. I was blown away by how well this one held up for such a low alcohol beer.

Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a suggestion of slightly pinkish foam on top. The aroma is all fresh cherries, with a very light tartness, some vanilla and malt. Light bodied and refreshing, lightly tart, a little malt, but mostly delicious fresh cherries.

Incredible.

Cool dark red, cherry appearance to it, thin head. Aroma is massively cherry, like you just opened a can of cherry pie filling. Bottle says a fuggin pound of cherries in every bottle! Every bottle! Damn!

Taste is exquisite, cherry, slight oak finish to it, sweetness takes the high road, counterbalanced by the wood and a slight tartness that is miniscule in comparison to the hearty cherry mouthfeel. Malt base keeps it from becoming overly sweet, good carbonation keeps it from feeling syrupy.

This is pretty much the holy grail of fruit beers in America, maybe the world. Blows away any other beer w/ cherry in it, here, the cherry is so dominate, don't even think of trying this beer unless you really like cherry. Not for hophead only guy. You can't understand the cherry dominance in this (but again, the nuances of everything else make it work even better) until you try it. Next time I'm in Wisconsin, I'm getting like 10 of these. Hopefully the fruit don't fade. Fresh is definitely very good here.

One of a kind brew here! Pours a dark ruby color, with a pinkish foam. You can smell this is bursting with cherries the minute you open the container. Its unlike any fruit beer I have ever tasted, They say theres a pound of cherries in every bottle ( 20+ oz bottle) And I don't doubt them for a moment. This beer just rushes to the palate. Its quite bubbly, but that works wonderfuly with the flavor, which is cherry, cherry, and more cherry. If i could put cherry pie in liquid form, this is what i'd come up with. Simply amazing.

25oz bottle, Boulevard tulip, and thank you Craig.

The appearance itself is a paragon of cherry. It looks like cherry juice with a cherry blossom colored head of small proportions. The initial pour is crystal clear, though I'm guessing at the bottom of the bottle is some nice trub. It looks like it smells and tastes.

Syrupy Maraschino cherry; the nose is very sweet. Cough syrup comes through a bit medicinally with some bite. No denying that this thing is loaded with cherries.

I really can't imagine the fitting of cherry flavor into a beer better than this liquid in front of me. It's a huge juicy sweetness like cherry Jolly Ranchers. There is a cough drop/syrup heavy turn at the end, a slight tingle on the tongue. Goodness this stuff is sweet, but like fruit is, not like 10% super sweet Barleywine. Low level of oak tannin help close it out and lift some of the sweetness.

Fairly high level of carbonation works on keeping things from being perceived as syrupy. The body is right there. It is thick and sweet. Even more carbonation would not be out of line.

I'm slightly confused about the difference between this and sparkling cherry juice. Since it is beer, it seems like an example of some exceptional brewing skill. Some may find the medicinal character to be objectionable, but I don't.

(750ml bottle courtesy of Alpar!). Pours hazy red juice color with minimal head. Aroma of maraschino cherries. Taste is sweet. Medium bodied with a luscious, ripe fruit finish. Man, this is a delicious beer...Thanks for sending this out Alex. Awesome stuff! This is the holy grail of fruit beers.

2010 bottle, shared with the wife. The beer poured a ruddy dark amber with a fingers with of billowy red-tinged beige foam. The head didn't hang around too long, and after receding it left a tight circle of small white bubbles around the outer edge of the surface of the beer fed by a steady stream of fine carbonated bubbles.

It smelled like a juicy red cherry sweet-tart, with a twist of lemon and a hint of wheat. The taste was a direct continuation of the nose. Tangy candied cherries up front that leave you with a little pucker. The beer had a medium body with a medium-high (but well balanced) amount of carbonation. It felt mildly creamy, and had a somewhat acidic finish. I ended up drinking the majority of the bottle, and didn't grow tired of it through 4 smaller glasses. Was a very refreshing beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Bell's tulip glass. A centimeter of head formed at the top and disappeared quickly.

A: At first this didn't look that great--lots of bubbles on the side of the glass in inconsistent patterns that just made it look spotty. After the bubbles mostly disappeared, it was a nice red color, notable because it's an unusual color for a beer, but not remarkable aside from that.

S: The smell is just amazing. No complexity, just a straightforward explosion of sweet cherry smell, like a whiff of cherry cobbler or something. Never smelled another alcoholic beverage of any kind with such an awesomely straightforward fruit smell.

T: Like the nose, the taste is almost pure cherry, but a little different than I expected from the smell, as there's a slight tartness to the flavor that isn't present at all in the smell. The sweetness is still big though, bigger than the tartness, but it all comes together into an amazing balance. Enough tartness that it isn't cloying or sickeningly sweet, but enough sweetness that you could drink this stuff like soda and never realize it was alcoholic (my girlfriend and I finished this bottle in record speed). Oh, and if I didn't make this clear already, the cherry flavor is HUGE. And really, really good.

M: Really light and well carbonated. Almost more like a fruit soda than a beer, but I mean that in a mostly good way (it is slightly odd).

Overall: Basically, after drinking this you're left wondering if New Glarus used any ingredients besides cherries. If you like cherries, you will love this beer, even if you dislike other fruit beers.

Poured into a wine glass. Brilliantly clear, bright scarlet colored with a medium sized creamy pink hued head. Average head retention and little lacing, but very beautiful looking beer, especially when help up to light.

Aroma is very sweet, loaded with cherries and some softer floral notes. The taste is similar, but stronger: very sweet but in a light and tart way, with a bare hint of hops at the end. Lip smacking good. Medium bodied with good carbonation, but not enough to scrub the sweetness off the palate, or it could be the temperature of the beer, which has gotten warmer. Overall a very good and unique beer.

shared a bottle of this w/ bonhoeffer & deaconbluez at the j.clyde...

poured a ruby red color into a snifter. the nose was overwhelmingly cherries but with a hint of sweetness. the taste was the same but with the slightest tartness just to balance out the sweetness. the mouthfeel was silky smooth. i could have easily drunk the whole bottle but was glad to share it with some friends.

750ml bottle courtesy of levifunk. Into an unbranded tulip.

A: Pours a murky brown with a fair amount of red highlights, of white head with some pink accents. About an inch of head or so that recedes into a thin cap of bubbles leaving behind a few nice spots of lacing. A fair amount of carbonation moving up through the glass.

S: Incredible cherry smell, never once does it even come close to the nasty artificial cough medicine-esque cherry flavor in a lot of cherry beers. Smells very clean and fresh. Some notes of vanilla and a slight lemon-esque wheat malts offer a little tartness and tanginess. Quite nice.

T: Again, incredible amount of true cherry flavor, nothing artificial. Incredibly robust fruit flavors. Nice crisp wheat malts and a touch of tartness that never quite reaches sour. Slight amount of oak/wood/vanilla as well.

M: Fairly heavy on the body, with a surprising amount of carbonation, sweet and slightly tart on the finish. Very well rounded and feels quite nice.

D: Very easy to drink, we will have no issues finishing this 750ml of. Nice beer, but I think the Raspberry Tart is just a little nicer. Both are outstanding fruit beers, and live up to the hype.

Thanks Levi!

This beer pours a dark red color, there was no head at all. The smell is very sweet, strong of cherry. The taste was very carbonated, very sweet, and a strong cherry falvor, just a small bit of a malty taste is present at the end of the flavor. Very easy to drink, and drinks like a champange. Overall a really good fruit beer, different, and it will only be liked, if you like cherries.

750ml red waxed bottle poured into a wine glass. Huge thanks to Thorpe429 for sending this!

Pours a dark ruddy reddish color, quite hazy with a nice small white head. Nose is somehow very well done, it is fruity and sweet, there's a bit of tartness, but somehow, they've kept it from being overly sweet and cough-syrupy.

Taste is also amazingly well done. The fruity is there, nice light cherry flavor and tartness, but it's not too sweet, the tartness is there but it's not so much that I can't drink a whole bottle. Nice thick and chew mouthfeel, much more than most lightly carbonated, over sweetened fruit beers.

As much as I've gone on about how not sweet this is, it still is sweet enough that I wouldn't want more than a bottle, that being said this is phenomenal!

750mL green glass bottle. Didn't see what type of closure it had, but it was red wax. Thanks to Destiny for opening this! No date - Why don't people put dates on their beers?!

Quick review: Pours a bright candy-apple red color, fairly clear with some faint crackly head. Nose is like a Luden's Cherry cough-drop - and I don't mean that as a slight. Bright juicy "cherry" aroma. Palate is crisp and clean with some crackly bubbles and that same "cherry" flavor. It's not dark cherries, nor black cherries, but seriously juicy RED cherry. Clean, somewhat tart finish.

I could drink this all day. I love me some cherry beer!

A: Dark, slightly brown shade of red with a light white head.

S: Deep cherry aroma with light vanilla and banana. Strength of cherries is very impressive, yet still authentic.

T: As expected, flavor is a primarily cherries. Lightly sweet, with a nice tartness, tannin, and a faint cracker malt that tempers the intensity of the fruit just enough. Finish is on the short, clean side.

M: Light-medium body, with a moderate level of sharp carbonation. Crisp feel.

Very drinkable for such an intense beer. Easily my favorite of the New Glarus fruit beers and one of the better examples of the style out there.

A: Pours a gorgeous deep ruby red, crystal clear, with a frothy one-finger head that's tinged tan and pink. Head dissipates rather quickly, leaving very little lacing.

S: Smells strongly of sweet and tart cherries, with some oakiness in the background. Very nice.

T: Delicious cherries up front, backed up well by a bit of malt sweetness, with all the little edges of the flavor filled in by subtle touches. This is an incredibly well balanced beer, which is impressive given that it's pretty darn sweet. The flavor is so smooth, strong yet subtle. Wow.

M: Medium-bodied and a bit syrupy, though the hefty carbonation makes it feel lighter. An absolutely perfect match for the flavor.

D: Incredibly drinkable. I don't get a ton of "beer" in this, but everything about it is so good, I'm okay with that. It is a bit froo-froo, but I will definitely enjoy one now and then.

EDIT: after having this a few times, the thing that takes it a notch below Raspberry Tart is the odd cough syrup sharp medicinal aftertaste that occasionally comes in. I don't always get it, but when I do, it takes me aback. Eliminate that, and this would be in the tip top tier.

Bottle tasted blind as part of Blind BIF #4 thanks to Khazadum

Blind Beer #1 (2nd opened) from Khazadum.

750 mL (hand?) waxed bottle poured into a pint glass per the instructions.

Pours an absolutely beautiful ruby amber with an uneven frothy light khaki head.

The nose blasts me with cherry and biscuit and I'm immediately reminded of Selinsgrove Kriek. This packs a huge punch as I'm inundated with some apple as well as caramel. It smells like a cherry apple pie.

The first sip reminds me of candied apples as a child. It also has that very distinct candied cherry flavor like the old dairy queen red dipped soft serve. There's an abundance of sweetness, but i'm not overpowered as there is a beautiful tart finish to balance this. I wouldn't call it a sour by any means, but I could see there being some sort of wild yeast just starting to cut its teeth into this beer.

Mouthfeel is unlike most beers. Its quite full and the flavors jump around as the carbonation dances across my tongue. There's some thick syrup lingering around the mouth which really helps the flavor stick around.

Overall, this beer is going down waaay too easily. The flavor is intense, yet not overwhelming. Despite the sweetness, it's still well-balanced and I could drink many many more of these bottles.

I'm guessing it's gotta be something like New Glarus Belgian Red. If not, this is still the top 2 best fruit beers I've ever had.

The reveal: New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red

Rating as a fruit beer: 4/5.0/5.0/4.0/4.5

Shared this bottle with family at Mom's b-day.

Appearance: Deep violet-red. Not much head.

Smell: 100% tart cherries.

Taste: Cherry is all. Tart & sweet. Just a tad on the sweeter side....perhaps too much for me. Just shy of being cloying.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and tart.

Drinkability: I enjoyed this beer but preferred the Raspberry Tart. This one was just a bit too sweet for me. I'd never be able to finish a bottle by myself. I could with the Raspberry.

Bottle thanks to Glouglouburp. Beautiful ruby pour with a bit of frothy pinkish foam. What can I say about this beer, let's see, at first the aroma was super intriguing, tons of real cherries. Very intense and inviting. Shortly after the initial whiff though, it starts to smell like cough medicine (still okay but not quite my favorite smell) and then it actually starts to literally smell sweet. Okay, taste now. The first few sips are like the first few whiffs of smell. Great real cherry taste, sweet and definitely not sour.
5 minutes in and I'm sick and tired of the syrupy flavor. Palate is flat and super sticky. I wanted to like this beer so bad, but in the end three of us ended up drinking a quarter of the bottle. I do believe it will make great ice cream sauce.

Thanks to UMNBeerhunter for this as an extra!

A: Pours deep, deep cherry red. Says over a pound of cherries in every bottle - it shows. Thick quilt of pink-tan fine foam comes and goes with tips of the drink. Excellent clarity.

S: Tart cherries with slight yeasty scent. Very mildly syrup smell.

T: Yep, cherries. Like a liquid jolly rancher. Very, very nice.

M: Thick, syrupy, light to moderate carb. This beer sticks to my mouth. Man this would be perfect with a dollop of Cherry Garcia in it.

D: Absolutely a digestif for a warm afternoon. Slowly sip while reading a book. Very nice.

750ml bottle split with russwbeck and poured into a Sam Adam's Infinium flute. Bottle provided by UMNbeehunter, thanks Joe!

A - Pours a deep ruby color, crystal clear with multiple, steady carbonation streams. Only about a finger's worth of head with poor retention. Almost no lacing with this beer; when it's gone it's gone! However, not really expecting that with this kind of beer. All-in-all, a pretty nice looking appearance.

S - Smell is of tart, black cherries. The depth of the cherry aroma is almost absurd, you can get every aspect here from the stem and skin, to the juicy, slightly sour inside, to the gritty, earth pits. Given that this beer is a one-track to cherry heaven, it's nice to see the main attraction come with such layer and complexity. Balanced nicely by malts and sweetness.

T - Make no mistake, this beer is very cherry forward, but after the initial cherry rush, there is a nice balance to be had. Sweet and sour up-front as the tart cherries make themselves at home in the corner of your cheeks. Again, every part of the cherry is represented here; skins, pits, stems, the whole thing. The malts really do a great job of contrasting with the slight sourness. Finish is long and tart.

M - Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Leaves a nice, thick coating in the mouth with a long finish.

D - Drinkability is high. New Glarus isn't far off by describing this as the marriage between beer and wine (and maybe fruit juice). Incredibly easy to drink without having the cherries dominate. Would be a nice beer to have on special occasions but probably not something I'd seek out for everyday drinking.

Many thanks to ericfb18 for this bottle in a recent trade

750ml bottle with red wax cap
Pours deep ruby copper color into my New Belgium glass. Forms about half an inch of foam that quickly dissipates. I'm lsurprised by how much lacing is left on the sides of the glass as I drink.

Smells of cherries--no shocker there, but there's a lot of different "cherry" smells and tastes possible. This strikes me as true; cherries soaked in a sweet alcohol, brandy possibly. The cherries are the star of the show for sure.

The taste is also heavy on the cherries--a mix of sour and tart with some maraschino thrown in the mix for sweetness. Make no mistake, this beer is sweet, but it is not overpoweringly so. It would probably pair best with a dessert, or heck even be a dessert.

Silky smooth mouthfeel with some tart carbonation towards then end; just about how this beer should feel

This is such an easy beer to drink. It's not easy for me to obtain and I couldn't see myself drinking it every night, and that's coming from someone who likes things on the sweet side of things. A delicious beer overall though and a great example of the style
