3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is actually my least favorite of the New Glarus fruit beers. I actually get a beer flavor from it. Little less sweet that other ones. Mildly tart cranberry taste. Some hints of apple and cherry.

Bottle at all killer no filler. Pours a pinkish red with tiny pinkish head. Aroma is mostly laden with cherries with a hint of summer berries. Taste is cherries, raspberries, hint of strawberries and some mild acidity.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma is tart apple, maybe cranberry. Appearance is lighter red, off white head. Taste is apples, cranberries, apple skins, some yeast. Mouthfeel is lighter than I’d like, but refreshing. Overall, wonderful.

This could be the most fantastic brew ever. Apples cranberries and cherries inundate the aroma. Taste tart with all the above favors. Wonderful carbonation which made for a perfect palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish purple. Aroma of predominantly of cherries and little apple. The cranberries come through on tartness but the flavor is pretty fruit-punchy. Body is a little thin. Great fruit beer but not in the same stratosphete as the belgian red or raspberry.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased in Southern Wisconsin. Woodman’s or something like that. Off 84 in Waukegan? Anyway. The aroma is a bit tart, and vinous with hints of cherries. A bit reminiscent of Unibroue Quelque Chose in a way. Transparent garnet body with a small, quickly dissipating pinkish head. Starts with a sweet, somewhat tart, apple-like flavor. Some fruited raspberries and cherries are also in there. Quite sweet. Lots of Fruit Roll-Up flavors. Lightly carbonated. This is quite good, but a little on the sweet side.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is super fruity and slightly sweet with a light malt note. Lots of cranberries and apples with a lighter cherry note. Light grain and toasted bread. Faint acidity.
Pours a hazy, reddish brown with a medium size, moderately thick, tan head that recedes to a thin film that lingers thicker on the edges. Medium light lacing and medium small legs.
Flavor is similar to the aroma with a light acidity upfront then a bit more sweetness. Some cherries and cranberries upfront with a moderate apple note mid palate into the finish. Some lingering sweetness and low bitterness. Some light tannins from the fruit skins.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a sweet dessert like beer with a lot of fruit character. Rather light acidity and pretty much no funk. Too sweet for me though.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with large off white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong strawberry, apple skin, and cherry. Medium mouth, very jammy, tart berries, cherry skin, wood, really enjoyed this one.
