Steve's Liquor Madison

Cracked this open to share with dear ol' dad on Father's Day. Belgian Red pours a glimmering ruby with a touch of haze. A fizzy two finger champagne like head forms on the pour and fizzles down to a ring after a couple minutes. Small patchy lacing slides down the flute back into the body after each drink. A delicious looking dessert beer!

When I stick my nose in the glass it fills with all kinds of cherry. Cherry pie filling, tart cherries, Bing cherries, and maraschino cherries are all present and accounted for. Extremely mouthwatering, bold and to the point. An excellent rich aroma coming from an excellent beer.

Everything the nose suggested the flavor delivers. The immense cherry flavors start with a quick flash of tartness followed by the sweetened cherry pie filling and Bing cherries mid-palate. Finishes with another flash of the slightly tart cherries. All this cherry flavor really comes together to create something special.

Body is on the fuller side of medium with a bit of stick. Although the body is on the fuller side it moves through nicely and has a great smoothness.

This is a beer to be savored. The intense cherry flavors keep this from being guzzled but it is one easy beer to put away.

New Glarus's fruit beers stand a top a line up full of gems. The Belgian Red is all at once tart, tangy, and sweet with an incredible depth of flavor. You will have a hard time finding any other fruit beer that can come close to this one, flavor-wise.
