2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottle shared. Pours clear red brown with a ring off white head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Flavour is over moderate sweet. Light medium bodied with high carbonation. Really don’t understand the big ratings in this, it’s like one of those sweetened Belgian Krieks that we all typically turn out noses up at.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dull, hazy, dark amber appearance with minimal, off-white head. Foam quickly dissipates leaving ragged lacing. No malt, hops or yeast aroma to speak of, only a nice cherry smell. Taste is light sweetness, slightly sour, tart, and a little salty. A well built beer, but not exactly balanced as the only flavor is cherry. A great representation of the fruit beer style, with the intended cherry dominance. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. The finish is long, and maintains the cherry flavor with a little wheat. A standout beer that met my expectations, and I would recommend to a friend.

Bomber. Best of the fruit beers that I’ve had from New Glares. Smoot and not overly sweet but refreshing and enjoyable. Great for after dinner.

This is a beer that I have had many times and each time I drink it, I am reminded of how New Glarus sets themselves apart with their fruit beers. This pours a beautiful pink/rose color with a foamy white head that settles into a ring around the glass with a thin layer of delicate lace. The aromas are heavenly. Nice light breads over tart cherries. The yeast profile throughout these New Glarus fruited beers are signature. Whatever is in the hills of Wisconsin, it lends itself well to these brews! It tastes like cherry SweeTarts! A nice, light body along with bright carbonation allows flavor to explode across the palate. Light floral hops, light breads...such a harmony. No cloying sweetness, no puckering tartness....this beer is just right. World class!

Pours hazy red. Big cherry aroma that lingers throughout the bottle. Champagne like carbonation with pour. Another fantastic fruit beer from New Glarus.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks bytemesis. Hazy red with a quickly dissolving bubbly head. Sweet cherry, a little earthy ans marzipan aroma. Very sweet and syrupy taste. Highly drinkable, not carbonated, medium-bodied, marzipan aftertaste.

at a tasting, thanks kerenmk, bubly stable pinkish head, very hazy deep oxidised orange colour, colour, aroma of cherry candy and almonds, flavour of cherry, spice and cakey maltiness, light pleasant sourness but much too sweet, very fruity feel. Very nice but could be better if not so sweet.
