4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle via trade. This is one of the best fruit beers I have ever had hands down. Appearance itís an ugly brown/red color with a small to average white tight foamy head. Aroma is loads of fresh fruits, cherry and apple, some pie crust and graham cracker. Medium to slightly thinner bodied with average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a great apple and cherry combo along with pie crust and a slight touch of cranberry. When it comes to fruit beers no one is even close to New Glarus.

Poured from a bottle from last October (aged perfectly in the closet of my apartment lol). Brownish Red color with a nice thick head. Smelled of apples and cranberries, and had an excellent fruity taste! Honestly the best beer I've had from NG, and one of the best beers I've ever had! Can't wait to get it again next fall!

Deep reddish brown, thin cream head. Aroma is cherry, Apple, blueberry, cranberry, sour, funk. Taste is sweet and sour cherries, cranberries, a background of green Apple, a hint of blueberry. Slightly dry, crisp on the finish.

Another New Glarus sour fruit knockout. Lots of cranberry flavors. Good slightly tart finish, sweet but not cloying. Light and very refreshing. Just a bit of funk.

Thanks go out to Ri0 for this bottle!
A- A dark red colour, big head of foam that shrinks down quickly but leaves some nice lacing behind.
S- As soon as I popped the cap, the aromas literally permeated the area around me. Big green apples and sweet cherries every darn where...ooh..I am SO digging it. I could almost hover my nose over the glass for hours but...itís time to take a sip or 2, eh?
T- Oh my! The apples and cherries are there as expected but better executed than even I expected(not my first venture into NG Fruit/Vegetable beers) and then Iím hit with a mild cranberry tartness. Whoah, Nellie, this brew kills it!
M- Medium bodied, carbonation light until near/at/after the swallow where it perks up a bit. MF, like everything else screams nectar of the gods.
O- From my past track record for NG brews, I had high expectations. Those expectations were exceeded! Marvelous true Session beer!

Shared thanks to Dave. Pours out an attractive reddish colors with a small white head. Aroma is of fruity soda, some apple, cranberry, cherry, light syrup. Taste is complex, lots of layers of fruity goodness, sweet apple, fresh cranberry, light tartness, cherries, sweet berry, apple pie. This is really well done!

Super good. Not a normal fruity beer fan but this breaks the rules. Straight up raspberries but not too sweet.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with a delightful mixed fruit aroma. There is a delicious berry/cherry flavor with plenty of carbonation and a tart finish. Quite complex with an oaky presence.
