4.31/5 rDev -0.9%
A - Light opaque burgundy, creme colored-pencil thin head. small bit of lacing.
S - Delightful! Wow it smells nice. Aged cherries, sour apple and cranberry- the bottle certainly does not lie. In combination: scents of peach and aged pear. Almost like opening a bottle of maraschino cherries.
T - initially: sour hits immediately. first cranberry followed by a mellow aged cherry and lastly sour apple. beautiful tart flavor bites the tongue. tart level 6/10
M - froth is excellent. immediately after- carbonation pops and tingles the tongue.
O - Wonderful sour. Nothing overwhelming in any flavor. blended excellently in the oak - perfect for an after dinner desert beer. My only downfall is I'd most likely only drink one of these.

Bottle poured into FFF Teku
A - Pours a deep red/brown body with one finger of off-white pinkish head. Well carbonated
S - Cherries are the dominate scent going on. The apples are slightly noticed, but very subtle
T - Follows the nose but with more punch from the cherries. I was expecting more sourness from the charries, but it ended up being fairly sweet. Apples came in at the end, never got the raspberries.
M - Medium carbonation made for a light mouth. Coats well for the low ABV.
O - A smooth fruit beer that goes down well. I wouldn't want to drink more than two glasses of this with the sweetness factor. I wish it had more tartness to offset the sweet cherry/apple flavors.

BIG thanks to fvernon for this incredible extra! enjoyed from my new glarus flute.
a - brew poured a transparent yet deep ruby mahogany with a finger of foamy bubbly head that bubbled away. very champagne like carbonation. great streaky lacing. head was a bit pinkish tinted.
s - OH WOW! smells INCREDIBLE! really and truly amazing. my mouth started to water. just cherry fruit juice. rich and flavorful.
t - wow. just incredible. smells a bit better than it tastes, but the taste is a homerun...the smell, that's a grandslam. nice tangy cherry, but not overly so. not kreik like...vedgie beer like.
m - very champagne like. fizzy and prickly.
o - overall, just WOW!!! new glarus really owns the vedgie beer category. if only they would distribute. i'm just amazed by each and every one of these that they churn out.

Thanks to DarkMagneto for this one:
A - this one pours a ruby amber in color with ample fizzy fluffy head and solid lacing
S - cherry, cherry purée, cordial cherry, green apple, a bit of apple sauce, sour patch kids
T - cherry tart to the utmost; Serendipity tastes like a massive cherry tart bomb on apple-grape steroids; maybe a touch of cinnamon; a deliciously tart juice
M - this one has some serious tart pucker combined with perfect notes of sugar sweetness and the right amount of bite and fizz
O - serendipidelicious. Honestly, this is an awesome fruit beer and a perfectly complimentary offering along with Belgian Red and Wisconsin.

750 ml bottle generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.
A- Pours a clear reddish magenta, produces almost no head.
S- Nice aroma of cherry, jam, other berry flavors. Lots of sweet berries and fruits. Smells pretty nice.
T- Moderate tartness with nice cherry and berry flavors, some oak, it's just a bit light and sweet, has a sort of fruity soda pop thing going on.
M- Light-bodied, high carbonation, very spritzy.
O- A solid fruit beer, the cherry/berry flavors are very nice, it's a bit sweet for my tastes but still worth picking up.

4.2/5 rDev -3.4%
A: Poured a light pink with a dirty white head, some pretty good head retention and bubbles present on this one
S: Puree cherries, fresh red cherries, some Eathiness and perhaps a crnaberry or raspberry or two
T: Initial tartness with mainly red cherries, some of them a little green and unripened with a bit of candy sweetness, nice acidic sting with some Earthy notes. Tasted a bit like a childrens cough syrup
M: Someone mentioned smooth and wet on another review, yeah baby, thats it.Light bodied, high in carbonation but somehow it still provided a weird stgnant feeling on the palate. Sweet, tart with minimal booze
O: Not a fan of the style but this was pretty good and I can recognize a good beer when I see and taste one.
