From notes. First reviewed 1/10/2011. Served on tap in a taster glass at the Haymarket Founders event. Newaygo has a full cherry color and a nice tan head that fades to a ring, leaving a bit of lace. The aroma is cherry mostly, with touches of maple and oak. Pale malt, tart apple skin, and white grape provide a bit of support. Quick pale malt hits the tongue, then mildly sweet tart cherries. A hit of brown sugar and vanilla. Mostly sour with some sweet spots and an oak overlay. It stays sour through the finish. There is a medium body for the style, which means it has a lighter than medium body overall to go along with medium carbonation. A little bit dry, which makes it feel lighter than it is. Some puckering tart effects. Quite tasty. I like how the barrel aging interacts with the tartness.

On tap at Founders - December 29, 2010. Pours a beautiful pinkish-red color with a slight tint of brown. Thin off-white head with decent retention and then falling into a thin collar. The nose is absolutely incredibly with loads of cherry plus really nice notes of bourbon and maple syrup. Thereís some booze in there, but certainly is not overwhelming and goes quite well in that it is somewhat like a bourbon-soaked cherry. The taste is similar but not quite as intense and the booze takes over a bit more. Not as much maple as in the nose. The feel is a bit boozy, though not too far in the wrong direction. Drinks really, really well and I would love to have this again. I love how Founders never ceases to amaze me as each time I go there I find another barrel-aged treasure.

The beer pours a light murky gold with a light pink hint to it. The head is light pink but is gone quickly with poor lacing. The aroma is light cherry with a little syrup to it making it kind of creamy. The taste and feel are what start to kill this beer for me. It is way to sweet like pure syrup but oddly it was way too overcarbonated. It feels like a french sparkling water. This beer has some potential but its not there yet. Re-review - had this on tap at Haymarket, much improved, didnít change my notes, but changed the score.

Iím back, f*ckers. This was the first new beer iíve seen on draft in a while. Probably the best cherry beer Iíve had, not including New Glarus because the belgian red and enigma are incomparable. This one was super subtle and crafted the cherry into the beer really well, which is generally uncommon in fruit beers. This is to cherry beers what the southern tier pumpkin beer is to pumpkin beers

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Ruby colored pour with a small, loose, white head. Rich dark cherry aroma, with a healthy dose of bourbon and vanilla, and a little hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is medicinal but not off putting. Almost like a Ludenís cough drop. Lots of tart cherries, some pie spice, and finishing with a long vanilla and sherry note. Sticky, full body with soft carbonation.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Clear pink amber with good, creamy, tan head / Elegant nose of dried cherries, cinnamon, and cedar / Medium body, moderately sweet and lightly tart, with minimal hopping and good finish / Flavors of sour cherries, young cedar, and spun sugar / Raw and young, too much wood, basically lacking any of the finesse of a geueze. As as wood-aged, young, cherry beer, itís fine, but not worth the price.

Draft on tap at Tribes (Mokena, IL). Iíve hunted this beer for a year and a half since my first visit to the brewpub and it was freshly sold out. Pours a glowing reddish glow, some brownish and fiery orange, murky. Beautiful layered lacing stays very nice. Huge tannish rusty head sits atop and laces well. Aromas are cherries, sweet and lightly tart, touches of vanilla and wet oak, faint spirit. Mellow, touches of biscuits and toffee. Initial is a mellow sweetness, cherries and a touches of tartness. Rusty tannins, some warming bourbon spirit, light as the fruity nature of the beer asserts itself. Not sugary sweet, but genuine cherry sweetness. Touches of biscuits and bready malts, more cherry tannins, tart with just a touch of vinegar. Natural, light bourbon spirit and wet oak. Refreshing, nothing cloying. A heavier hitter ABV-wise though. Tasty. Finish is cherry, light spirit, and a good deal of mellow oak. Nice
