Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Lindeman's flute. Acquired in a trade with moonman14, thanks!

Pours a hazy, effervescent dark amber body with a big gushing light pink head that reduces quickly at first, then slows down to leave frothy foam which sticks around for a while. Leaves nice lacing.

Aroma is BIG cherries.. cherry candy, marischino cherries, all cherry! Slight metallic aroma in he background.

Taste follows the nose, big cherries, pretty sweet but not cloyingly, slightly tart finish. It might be my imagination but I got a hint of cinnamon on the finish. High carbonation, extremely refreshing and tasty. Medium body, slightly syrupy.

I'm a sucker for a cherry bomb, and WBR didn't disappoint.. straight cherries all around. Comparable to Lindemans but a little less sweet and more full body. If you like a lot of cherry flavor, seek it out.

Went to New Glarus Brewery a few years ago and fell in love with this beer. It just royally sucks that we cannot get it here in Oregon. It is the best tasting cherry beer. The cherry is fresh, tart yet sweet and the bubbles are amazing. It is a beer I still talk about to this day, very worth while.

A delicious example of what New Glarus fruit brews offer.

In the front, Luden's cough drops and Starburst cherry flavors. A touch of tart quality with lots of red candy cherry fruit flavor. A touch of malt in the middle and a tart quality that dries out the beer.

A good amount of flavor for the ABV. They stand pretty similar in quality for me so far.
