Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: A rusty cranberry colored body holds up a cream colored head that recedes to absolutely nothing. No lacing.

Aroma: Faint tart cherry, not much else.

Taste: Subtle malts underneath a tart cherry taste. Very simple, not any other flavors.

Mouthfeel: Watery.

Overall: The whole is better than all the parts, but this beer is so simple it's boring.

Pours a soft, soapy head. Aroma is sweet malt and faint cherry. Radiant burnt umber color. Starts with a slight tartness and a nice, robust cherry flavor; the malt blends with the cherry to make for a cherry-pie like effect. The finish is lingering cherry and sweet malt.

I really like this one. It blends tart cherry and sweet malt in a wonderful way. It's got a great effervescent mouthfeel that is still smooth, too.

I don't get the mediocre reviews on this one. Maybe people just don't eat enough cherries to fully appreciate their flavor? I don't know what their frame of reference is, but this is a nice, solid, malty lager with cherries in it. What else were you expecting?

This pours a reddish amber color with a slight head and a little fizzy carbonation. The aroma is very grainy without much of a cherry scent. The taste is grainy and slightly sweet but not very heavy in cherry flavor. I’m a little disappointed as I was expecting something much different and better tasting. Do yourself a favor and pick up New Glarus Belgian Red instead.
