4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from trade. Thanks! My first New Glarus. Pours a deep clear reddish pink with a small head that recedes quickly. Aroma is light cherries, some sour vinegar, and a bit of caramel vanilla. Slick mouthfeel and tastes like cherries, vanilla, wood, and some apple. Maybe a hint of ginger and cinnamon but not "spice" by any means. Thr vanilla in the sour makes this one somewhat sweet. High carbonation keeps it very drinkable. Very unique brew, and a winner for sure!

Without the "©" character, I could have accidentally rated the wrong beer. I would just like to thank the person for whom this beer was reserved by StFun: if you it wasn’t for you not getting back to Josh in a timely manner, I wouldn’t have been able to try this out for some time. Thanks, both of you’s! Pours a hazy strawberry ruby-red with a whitish ringed which rested atop. Aromas of honeydew melon, cherry syrup, funk (quite prominent), earl grey tea, wine sediment, peaches, and light oak. Tastes as everything described above, with the addition of table sugar, brief citrus, and pear skins. Light candied sugar and soy milk by swallow. Thin. Easy-drinking has never been so easy, or so memorable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CanIHave4Beers. I ain’t gonna lie. This was a good haul. Pours a leather brown with a nose of funky cherried leather left on the neighbor’s horse’s back. Lots of musty barn air and leather potpourri floating around a raspberry candle. Flavor is a swirl of leathered cherry blanket of cherry candy. Slick on the tongue. Great beer but a bit too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12 oz). Thanks to Yannick for this one! Clear reddish amber with a small off-white head and barely no lacing. Aroma of cherries, cinnamon, oak and other red fruits. Taste is sweet and full of spices (cloves, cinnamon), red fruits (mainly cherries) and wood. Pretty cough syrup like. Mouthfeel is sirupy. Warming spices. Not much sourness in this beer. The "cough syrup" aspect of this beer is almost cloying which affect drinkability. This is still a good beer though. The "warming" aspect of this make this one a good winter beer despite the low abv.

Bottle generously given as an extra by preisj
Poured into hill farmstead stemware, clean into the glass with no head or lacing. Smell of cherry and oak, taste follows the same notes while packing a sour pucker after taste. Very fruit juice like reminds me serendipity
