3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New, fresh batch for 2014. Light amber. Good little soapy white head. Aroma is grainy, only a touch of tart cherry. A more rare instance where the aroma is a let down to the flavor. Flavor really comes to life in comparison. Much more tart cherry. Dark cherry. Graham cracker. Juice from a cherry pie. Much better than I expected, particularly the flavor. Pretty good, However not 9.99 a 4pack good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer has the sad misfortune of having to compete with New Glarus’ Belgian Red, which scores a perfect 100. Its flaws are amplified due to this. The flavor of cherry is faint at best, with a mild tartness to accompany it. The aroma is a slice of three-week-old cherry pie that you forgot in the back of the fridge after Thanksgiving: spicy, with an underlying odor of fermenting cherries. The head is thin, and fleeting. The color is a clear, dark orange. If you stare long enough, you might be able to convince yourself that there is some red in there. Overall, this might be an okay beer if Belgian Red didn’t exist, but we can’t ignore the fact that such a high bar has been set for a cherry beer in Wisconsin. It’s palatable, but not much more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An average fruit beer. The cherries are present on the nose and palate, with the lager yeast really only showing up on the palate to give this just a little depth. Finishes with a little cherry tartness.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a mostly transparent orange with white lacing. Smells of dough and lager yeast with mild cherry notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad; couldn’t drink a lot of it though due to its sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated on 3-22-2010 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small fizzy off-white head with a short retention, transparent orange body, visible carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is malty, sweet and tart cherries. The taste is sweet, sour, tart cherries, and has a short dry finish. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not very cherry tasting and is rather bland tasting and not a beer I will seek out again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a nice reddish copper color to it, has a nice white head and decent lacing on the glass. The smell is mild malt and has a sour cherry scent to it. The taste is decent with a nice mild malt taste with a sour cherry finish to it, different but nice. The mouthfeel leaves you with a bitter finish but beer is well carbonated. Overall, a nice sour summer lager but not much more than that.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice ruby red colored pour. Big pink-tinted head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of cherry juice. Almost a Kool-Aid cherry aroma. Not bad. Taste is a bitter cherry followed by not much. Kind of bland and lifeless.
