Draught at Caponeís: No aroma at all. Poured red/pink with a hint of amber in color and a creamy, dense, slightly pink head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet with a hint of tartness. Tastes of wheat, cherries, and water. Medium body. Chalky texture. Average carbonation. Wheat finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is tart cherries and a wheat like aroma as well. Appearance s pinkish amber color with a thick off white slightly pink head that lingers around for a while. Taste is tart cherries, sweet but not too sweet, and a really nice sourness to it overall. Palate has a slightly lingering tart cherry taste in the aftertaste. Itís quite carbonated and tart on the tongue. Overall, I like it. It;s not a sugary mess but tastes like cherries and is nice and tart. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Aroma of light cherry, with a somewhat metallic odor. The first sip starts a bit tart, then a big syrupy sweetness hits you. It goes down too thick and sweet for me. Good carbonation. Overall, too sickeningly sweet for me. I love Founders beer, but this one disappointed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single purchased at Roziís in Lakewood. Pour is a very, well, colorful one. It looks like wine, or fruit punch...with bubbles. Its the off-reddish hue with a thin white head. Flavor is not so bad considering the aroma doesnít do anything to impress. Flavor is crisp from the cherries, a little tart, then closed with a little maltiness. Not the best fruit beer from Founders, but could be a whole lot worse.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle pours a pinkish orange, with a very small whitish head. tart cherry pie aroma with some pale malt to give it a beer base. surprisingly sweet (i guess?), much like cherry filler out of a can that might be used to take up space in a cherry pie. somewhat thin, but not watery. enjoyable possibly as a dessert beer, or for someone who likes sweeter fruity beers, but this isnít one i will drink regularly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dirty pink with a fizzy, pop like, white head. The aroma is cherries, cherry pits, and toasted malts. The flavor is very malty with a robust cherry finish. Medium body and sprite carbonation. Not at all what I had expected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish-amber color with a pink head. Aroma is of cherries, toasted malts, and some grains. Flavor is pretty much tart cherry throughout. Nice tartness on the finish. Overall pretty good, but not New Glarus.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 Bottle. Aroma has notes of cherries, yeast, and bread malts. Bright red amber hue with an average pink head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is sweet, tart, and sour. Palate is medium bodied and lively. Very good beer and as close to New Glarus Belgian Red as Iíve come across. One of my favorite fruit beers so far. Great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours clear red color with white head. Has a tart cherry aromat. Has a medium light mouthfeel. Flavor is more tart cherry aroma with some biscuit. This is an easy drinking fruit beer. Served with a cherry pie or some ice cream and weíve got something!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear reddish pink amber with a tiny white head. Aroma of light cherry pie filling and cherry concentrate. Taste of sour cherries, cherry pie filling and cherry juice concentrate. Almost like a watered down light version of New Glarus Belgian Red.
