750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy light brown reddish color with an off white pinkish head. Aroma is apple cider, cherries, mild tartness. Better tartness in the flavor than a lot of the other New Glarus fruit beers, balancing out the sweetness. Sweet cherry apple tartness in the finish.

Now as too sweet as Serendipity was for me I loved Belgian Red. It is also super sweet but really was well done. The cherries are strong and sweet. Definitely a nice red color too.

I don't believe that better fruit beers exist than those from New Glarus.
