Deep red cherry pour with a quick pink low frothy head. Aroma is immediate cherry, sweet and tart. On taste its all cherry. Low sugar level; awesome cherry mash. Tartness spot on. Mouthfeel is luxurious bright and balanced. I'm not sharing this one. This taste just like natural tart juice and get this baby ice cold. Fantastic summer refresher. Best cherried brew I've ever had.

Bottle. One of my oldest (but not most desirable) 'wants'. It poured a dark red. The aroma was sweet cherry juice with an earthy element to it. A shimmer of tartness? Flavor was like a Luden's Cough Drop. Sweet and almost medicinal. Maraschino cherry juice. Earth. A little tartness. Sticky feel. Really full for a beer clocking in at 4%. Not necessarily what I expected and I am sorta disappointed but I can now un-check the 'want' button.

Smell: sweet cherry black cherries cherry slushy some oakiness
Taste: a really good mix of semi sweet cherries and a mild tartness that coats the pallet in the middle of the mouth that taste resembles a cherry slushy syrupy and sweet and also some Belgain yeast spice in the finish you get a hint of oakiness.
Feel: Medium Body dry in the finish
Overall: I've had all three of the 750ml fruit beers by new Glarus. I would have to say the raspberry tart is definitely the best followed by Serendipity and then Belgain Red. All three of them are awesome fruit bombs that are balanced and have a nice hint of oak. New Glarus makes the best fruit beers period!
