Reddish brown. Aroma of Balsamic vinegar. Taste- tart cherry, green apple, blueberry, red wine and more of that Balsamic Vinegar. Laid down on top of a mellow cereal malt. I really like Sours and this is top-notch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-7-15. Pours a medium brown with a small amount of taupe head. Hazy. Copper to reddish hue. Nice color, but I wish there were more head. Tart, raspberry, rhubarb aroma. A bit of balsamic vinegar in the smell, but not in a bad way. Dusty, musty smell. Smells very good. Tart, lightly sour flavor. Spicy, hot finish features cinnamon and cloves. Chemicals. All of these effects are very good. Rhubarb and tart raspberry in the flavor as well. Tart in a dull way in the aftertaste (not boring dull but rather subdued dull). Nice, sharp, fluffy palate. Easy to drink. Just a darn good beer across the board. Complex and likable in all ways. Better than I remember from previous bottles, although I have liked each of them. All that said, it doesn’t blow me away in any facet.

Reddish brow pour, fairly large head. Sour cherry predominately in the aroma and taste. Toffee, slightly jammy, not as acidic as other new glarus fruit or sours. Medium body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Glarus Enigma has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly clear, red-orange-brown appearance, some lacing left behind, and no noticeable bubbles. The aroma is of sharp, oaked, sourness, some sugar, citrus juice, and brown bread. Taste is the same, with a coconut and stomach acid component. Mouthfeel is medium, and New Glarus Enigma finishes puckering, tart, and sip-able. RJT
