Pours a toffee caramel rustic brown color with a nice white head that dissipates but doesn't fully disappear. Nose is apples, cherries, and the Belgian spicy notes similar to the Belgian Red. The taste starts with a little bit of lemon that moves on to the bombardment of fruits - cherries and apples are upfront and move on to a soft cranberry flavor, mixed in with the spicy NG yeast strain. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Overall, this is another fantastic fruit beer from NG. Glad I got to drink up some Belgian Red this weekend, but this makes a fine substitute.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.
Pours a clear sunny red color, bubbly fizzy head of about one inch fades quickly, small little dots of lacing on the glass.
Incredibly fruity fresh aroma- the fruits all mix well together, but cranberry and cherry are the most notable.
The taste is similarly vibrant. Cranberry, cherry, and apple (again, not as noticeable as the others, probably because of their more tart characters), all smack you across the face, nicely. There is a mild, but very welcome, sour twang at the end of each sip that keeps the sometimes cloying sweetness in check. The beer is quite sweet, unbelievably so, actually, so drinking large amounts isn't easy.
Medium bodied, crisp juicy mouthfeel. Drinkable for the first 4 oz or so, then gets to be a cloying chore, a little bit.
Incredible that this is actually beer- I don't taste any malts or hops, just the giant basket of fruit that went into each bottle.
