Pours a cherry red color with an off white head. Aroma is full of fresh ripe cherries. Exactly. Amazing to just breathe this beer in. The flavor is big on the tart, delicious cherries. Doughy malts back the full on sweet cherries leaving you feeling like you just ingested the best cherry tart in liquid form. This is exceptional fruit beer. Medium bodied brew with soft to dry cherries. Overall, an American classic, made with care in small batches as long as the local cherry crops allow. Almost impossible to find outside of Wisconsin and surrounding areas.

A - pours dark to light red with tons of carbonation. very light white/pinkish head that leaves a fantastic lace on the glass. Bubbles are spectacular on this too.

S - Aroma hints of apples and cranberries on the nose, and bouquets of fruits but the cherries really shine through on this. When I first tried this didn't expect the aroma to be as strong as it did, it's a very pleasant aroma.

T - Smell complements the taste, up front you get a nice sweetness and towards the end you get the sour tart cherries. Awesome dessert beer.

M - very nice complexity and balance with the sweetness and sour/tart. Carbonation goes well with the taste to tone down the sweetness of this.

O - Belgian Red is one of my favorites from New Glarus' line of Fruit Beer. This is great on a hot day or picnic, even a great dessert pairing beer. Nonetheless this beer is great definitely recommend to any lambic/fruit lover.
