4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably one of the best sours I've had. Bottle pour at Toefflers in new glarus. Dark red with no head. Sweet fruity raspberry and raisin aroma. Cherries and raspberries dominate the taste. Not a "puckery" sour - just fruity and delicious.

March Ale Alpharetta. Damn I like me some New Glarus. Lots of sour cherries and oak. Bits of vanilla add to the depth of medium sour cherries. Lively carbonated palate. Good stuff.

I didn’t read the label all the way to the bottom, so the fact this is a sour ale was quite shocking. After the initial shock passed it was ok

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper red hue with creamy tan head that dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is huge clove, balsamic, caramel. Mouthfeel is ok with medium light body x d soft carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a chemical following. Overall this beer is kind of disjointed and overly-clove like

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy mahogany with a fairly thick light tan head. Malty aroma has a cedar overtone. FlVor is mainly sour cherries but not make-your-face-do-calisthenics sour; a bit of fruity sweetness peeps through, as well as woody and malty tones. Fairly fizzy texture is somewhat firm. No enigma here - bottoms up!

The best of the New Glarus beers. Taste is a mix of a sweet citrus ale and sour but sour is not overwhelming. Good beer for a cool fall day.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish caramel colored with very thin off white head. Nose is mild vinegar with little malt. Taste is vinegar up front then tart cherry and then some sweetness. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Solid copper body with deep amber edges & modest clarity. Soapy, thin, gray-tinted layer of foam on top. Ripe, tart apple aroma up front that quickly gets usurped by a strong foundation of white wine grapes, wet oak, black cherry skins, & mild lactic acidity. Not as sour as the aroma would have you believe, but it seems more complex & layered on the palate. Candied apples, apple cider vinegar, bready toasted malt, faint cinnamon, red grapes, oak, a hint of vanillin, tart & under-ripe prune, & a bit of faint caramel. Nice sourness balanced with sweetness from start to finish. Acidic, but juicy enough to blunt things nicely. Hint of yogurt & lacto in the drying, grape skin & warm oak finish. Really nice stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a deep, dark ruddy brown, with a head that dissipates rather quickly.
Smell: Balsamic vinegar notes waft out of the glass first, of course, followed by notes of cherry and sweet caramel. Faint hints of something akin to hardwood also come along for the ride.
Taste: Now that’s a good, approachable, fruity oud bruin. Sour vinegar strikes first, overlaying every other aspect of the taste with its essence. Cherry and berry flavors dance to the balsamic tune, occasionally forming some hints of currant and plum, while sweet caramel plays a soft counterpoint in the background.
Mouthfeel: Medium and drinkable.
Overall: Decidedly tasty. Would repeat frequently, if I were nearer the Wisconsin border. Which I may be fairly soon, so I’ve things to look forward to!
