5/5 rDev +14.9%
Pours a deep amber to faint red with moderate lacing. The aroma is downright unbelievable. As advertised, sour cherry jumps to the forefront, backed up by notes of apple and cranberry. The taste is follows suit, with pleasant balance sour cherry sweetness and tartness, along with apple and cranberry. There's also a nice, fruity, spicy heat that follows in the aftertaste. The profile follows well, and is probably best compared to ginger ale for its sharpness. It thankfully has a low ABV (4.0%), or else I'd likely wind up face down on a sidewalk somewhere. For anyone who claims to hate beer, I'd recommend this in order to convert. Great stuff.

Bottle from a friend. Pours a deep ruby red with off white two finger head. Huge bouquet of cranberry and cherry, sweet and tart smelling. Flavor is more cherry heavy with hints of the cranberry coming through. Very sweet, slight tart. More medicinal than I had hoped but not overwhelming. Lingering tart cranberry that grows on me while I go. Light to medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Cool beer, but not as good as Raspberry Tart.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.
A - My, oh my. This is one of the best looking beers ever. Pours a clear reddish purple with a slightly tinted red head.
S - Pure bliss. Cherries, apples, cranberries are all apparent (and in large doses!). Tartness hits the nose mildly. Probably the best smell from any liquid I've ever had.
T - This is truly perfection. All of the nose comes through in the taste, only amplified. It is such an easy drink while still being incredibly complex. The cranberries are dominating while sour apples and cherries come through near the finish. Tartness comes through making you want to keep drinking it until it's gone.
M - The mouthfeel is pretty light on this one, and the carbonation is a little on the higher side, but it's not imbalanced in any way. The tartness really helps the beer out though, masking the alcohol and providing a more subtlety to the carbonation.
O - I knew this was going to be good; but not THIS good! I never knew a fruit beer could taste so damn complex, delicious and refreshing. Kudos to New Glarus for making the worlds finest fruit ales!

A: Pours a dark red with some brown in it. Good sized fluffy offwhite head. Good head retention. Only moderate little streaks of lacing.
S: Nice aroma. Sweet, ripe apples and cherries.
T: Sweet apples and cherries up front again. Really nice. Sweetness runs out and there's a sudden twang of tart fruits instead with the apples and cherries. Cranberries kick in for an extra tartness in the finish. Lingering cranberry juice in the aftertaste.
M: Surprisingly medium bodied for only 4%. Nice and smooth and clean too.
O: Awesome fruit beer. Not quite as good as the Raspberry and Cherry versions but it's a very close 3rd. Pretty amazing that one brewery can make the top 3 fruit beers. Magic touch I guess. Wonderful strong flavors from only 4% ABV too. Great fruit beer.
