New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red is a deep dark reddish brew with a nice head of pink foam. Nose is slightly sweet, but strong natural cherry aroma. Taste is more of the same. Strong, tasty amazing natural cherry at first tart, but finishes sweet6er. Body on the thin side and a bit fizzy. a very awesome cherry flavored brew.

Pours a brown tinted ruby red with a small off white head and good lacing. Strong cherry licorice aroma and cherry skin. Taste has fresh bing cherry and some sweetness with a mild tartness. Some cherry skin. Flavor is big and tasty. Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very good fresh cherry with more perceived sweetness than actual sweetness. The tartness helps to balance it nicely. Fantastic.

Color is a slightly hazy garnet color with some brown. Smell is very cherry, red vines, cherry cough syrup without the medicine, touch vanilla. Taste is a tart cherry at first that makes you pucker at first but then finishes sweet and refreshing. Medium mouth and carbonation.

Almost a burgundy colored pour with nearly nonexistent head. Aroma of dark cherries, malt, and staves. Flavor is woody, deep, richly, semi-sweet and tart cherries, almost like a cherry pie. This is straight cherry, just as it should be. Very enjoyable, not many beers can compare to it.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a bright red with a thin white ring of head that dissipates quickly and some good pieces of lace. The aroma is a very strange fermented cherry. There is a decent Belgian yeast up there, and I think thatâ€™s what I donâ€™t like here. Not what I was hoping for. The flavor, however, is unbelievable. All cherry, sweet and tart, and it reminds me immediately of a melted cherry Slurpee. This is what itâ€™s all about! The mouth feel is very good and syrupy, with a light carbonation and that lingeringly tart cherry finish that is truly beautiful. This beer is pretty basic, but at the same time, scent aside, does exactly what itâ€™s supposed to. Damn.

My favourite of the NG fruit beers. Very sweet, low carbonation, slightly sour cherries and some soft wheat malt - absolutely delicious.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy, dark red-brown with a thick, dark, pinkish-beige head.
Powerful cherry and cream aroma.
Flavour is slightly tart, cherry malt, real, fresh cherry/juice.....spicy....
Massive cherry presence.....so much so that the dryness of the acids made me thirsty....AS I was drinking it.....I’m not normally a big fan of cherries, but this one is so spectacular in it’s presentation and colossal flavor, I can’t help but get on board and Love IT !!!

This is easily my favorite of the fruit beers from New Glarus. Pours a beautiful red color. Aroma of fresh door county cherries. Nice slick, but not that sticky, mouthfeel. Sweet semi tart cherry flavor. Cherry dominates the taste for this one. It’s sort of like drinking a thick fresh cherry juice. So darn delicious.
