Bottle. Reddish brown body with a grey head. Fruit sweet tart nose. Nice tart flavor. Just a bit of jawi tightening in the finish. Cranberry is dominant but not overwhelming. Very nice beer. Even better when i can drink this and poke brad in the ass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear red pour with white head. Aroma of jujubes, gummy bears to be precise, quite striking aroma, fruity in a very sweet (jelly) like way. Flavor brings a more "realistic" fruit. Distinguishable flavors of apple and cranberry. Very slight tartness but mostly sweet. Not overly syrupy like raspberry tart and WBR. Palate is very light and easy drinking. Actually enjoyed this NG fruit beer.

Bottle shared by Tommy, thanks a lot! Pour is hazy bright red with white head and good lacing. Aroma is sirupy, sweet cranberries, cherries, light aplle notes. Taste is sweet berries (gummies-like), apples, light tartness. medium body, sticky, average carbonation. Definitly not a fan of new glarus fruit beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to MatSciGuy for this one! Clear ruby/amber with a small persistent white head and intense lacing. Aroma of cherry gummies, cranberries, sweetness and green apple. Taste is moderately sweet and heavily fruity with tons of fruity gummies (cherry, cranberries and green apple) and light acidic presence from the cranberries. Sirupy mouthfeel. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Like Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Belgian Red, this is a low abv sipper. Sweet and fruity, really gummies-like. Still enjoyable.

Bomber. What a great save. Very similar in body to Big Red. Nose and taste have a lot of similarities with plenty of fruit. Taste has that nice cranberry tart bite that cuts the sweetness. Very nice on this hot summer day. New Glarus just keeps churning out goodness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep red brown color with a modest, very creamy, light tan head. Aroma has a lot of tart cranberry and cherry sweetness with a sweet apple juice finish. You can taste the cherry in this brew but I think its the cranberry that really makes this beer. The cranberry tartness complexed with the imparted yeast acidity and tartness makes this beer very good. The finish to the beer has a strong apple juice quality in both flavor and texture. Body is light with some stickiness too it. The carbonation is very fine and lends a slight sharpness too it. Overall a very good beer. The sweetness is a bit on the strong side for one person to consume and I could see this being a fantastic beer in smaller doses as a dessert. The apple juice quality at the end of the flavor would my only knock as it doesn’t seem to be transformed in the brewing process. Still a great beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle thanks to JStax. Pours ruby red with a small fizzy, bubbly head that fades to ring. Rich, juicy sour cherry and green apple aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a crisp tart finish. Great blend of cherries and apples, don’t detect any cranberries. Love the soft tingling carbonation. Drinks like a liquid jolly rancher. Love the New Glarus fruit beers. Need to try more of them.
