Poured from a bottle into a La Fin Du Monde snifter. The pour is crystal-clear and cranberry-red with some nice bubbles streaming from the bottom. There is 2 fingers of nice, fluffy head that dissipates rather quickly. The nose has lots of tart cranberry aromas. I also get the apples and, to a lesser extent, cherries.
The beer has a light body and a nice, bubbly mouthfeel. I get lots of fruit flavors, primarily sweet and sour cranberry and apple (cherries definitely take a back seat). The beer is quite sweet, but it feels like a natural sweetness and it is well-balanced by tartness from the cranberries. The finish is also quite fruity, puckery, and has a wine-like tannic feel, drying out the mouth and leaving flavors of cranberries lingering behind.
It is extremely drinkable and should be tart enough to please fans of spontaneously-fermented beers.
I just loved this beer. It was the first of 3 New Glarus beers I traded for that I get to enjoy and already it was the most intensely-flavored fruit beer I have ever had. It had such intense flavors, it was almost like drinking fruit juice. I suppose that might not appeal to some beer drinkers, but I really enjoyed it. I wish New Glarus beers like this one were available where I live (I had to trade for this one - thanks ABisonEgo). I wouldn't drink them all the time, but I would definitely crack one open every so often. One word of warning, though. Do NOT buy this beer if you don't like cranberries. Be warned!
