4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle via Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a dark amber to purple color with light pinkish head. Aroma is more cranberry and cherry forward with the apple coming in more when the beer warms a bit. Taste is slightly tart cherry to start, more sweetness followed by a bit of red apple with the cranberry coming in at the end to really make the tart factor come into play. I loved this beer as Iíve loved pretty much all New Glarus fruit beer. This one is just under Belgian Red as my favorite.

Pour is a hazy reddish copper with a light tan bubbly head. Nose is strong red apple, lots of cherry, and a faint touch of cranberry. Taste has a good bit of red Apple, moderate cherries, like cranberries, and a moderate touch of sourness. Light body, strong carb, dry finish. Fruits are extremely bright and really play well together.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of huge cherry notes, the kind of fresh fruit you only get from New Glarus fruit beers. The flavor is more of the same. I get some gigantic cherry as well as some light tartness, a hint of brown sugar and some toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. New Glares has done it again.

Poured from a bottle it is dark amber color with a slight head. The aroma is sour cherry and the taste is sweet cherry with an aftertaste of apple and it is very refreshing. It is a happy accident!!!

#800! Pours a deep ruby red with a brown/pink head. Aroma of tart cherries and cranberries with some Belgian funk. Taste is tart up front, then woody with strawberry and apple cider coming through. Very good, but not as good to me as Belgian Red.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, acquired via trade with dresden (thanks Steve!), and shared with Ferris. Deep purple-red body capped by a bubbly pink head. Loaded with jammy sweet fruit character, cherries and apples stand out, with just a mild yeast presence. Despite the claim made on the label, I found this to not be sour at all. Maybe a little funky character, but this is a fruit-dominated sweet ale all the way. Nice character, but Iím glad I had someone to share it with, as I think it would have been too sweet to drink much more of.
