Bottle shared by Sammy, 12oz into a tulip - 2009 vintage.
Hazy orange brown, with a white head. Moderate retention and mild lace. Nose has huge berry notes, red grapes, yeast, some berry pie and a just a ton of fruit character all around. Taste has more berries and cherries, yeast character, some bready and crusty character, and just delicious fruits - almost like a berry pie. Medium feel, no alcohol. Has held up exceptionally well for 3 years on this, further asserts New Glarus as one of my favourite breweries going.

Pours a hazy, deep amber with plenty foam that settles to a centimeter of persistent head with some sticky bits of lace left behind. Smell is very complex; tart and sweet charry aromas mingle with vanilla (oak?) and a slight trace of balsamic vinegar. Gets pleasantly tart as it warms up. Sweet and sour finish. Suprisingly more body than I expected. Gets fizzy after a bit and the head falls to a very thin collar. Would like this to be a little drier; it's a little too sweet. Remarkably drinkable considering it's strength.
