4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very interesting brew. This is my first time sampling a fuit beer. Tastes like a lambic beer, wine & cherry soda all rolled into one. Perfect blend of sweet & tartness with a semi-dry finish on the palate. This brew has a wonderful cherry aroma and is very "rich" tasting. I wouldn’t want to drink this all of the time because it’s a little too heavy for me, but other than that this is an excellent and very unique tasting beer.

I’ve had this beer a million times before but never taken the time to rate it.
Deep red body with a small white head. The body is very opaque. The aroma is outstanding. Sour cherries blast out of the glass. The flavor on this beer is crazy good. Good sour cherry flavor with a bit of carbonation which seems to make the flavor pop. Ends on a pretty sweet note. The body is a bit heavy for the flavor but it’s pretty light overall. This is a great beer. If I ever get married, I’ll use this in place of champagne for the toast.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
75cl Bottle at home. I had been really looking forward to this beer for some time as im a huge fan of cherry beers. The pour was very deep red and produced a 1cm head that did not hang around. The aroma was upfront cherry and almond with a strong medicinal quality. As the aroma had hinted to me the taste was a huge let down. Way too sweet and medicinal. This is even sweeter than a Liefmans Kriek! It lacks complexity and does not have you wanting another sip due to its cloying oily palate. I was really dissapointed by this and im not quite sure how they managed to produce a false cherry flavour from real cherrys....

A wonderful fruit lambic. This beer has a very nice balance of tartness from the cherry to the sweetness. I do get a very slight bitterness, as if it came from that tart quality of the cherry, but still a very fine beer.

The colour is a light and quite dirty brown, fine head. It has a fantastic almond and cherry aroma. Well-balanced, coffee, cherry and burnt almond flavor. Good acidity. Long, well-balanced aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. It had a dark red cherry color w/ very little head. Aroma was of cinnamon, black cherry, and grenadine. Flavor was tart with black cherry, grenadine, and cinnamon. Not a fan of this beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle courtesy of Wallybrau. This poured a rich ruby color with a minimal head. Aroma was great, perhaps the best part of the experience. It smells like your sticking your nose into a barrel full of cherries, very sweet. Flavor is also dominated by cherries, but notes of spices and some oak (as it warms) are also present. A good fruit beer, perhaps a bit too much cherries though.

Best fruit beer available! A must buy when in Wisconsin. Really wish New Glarus would sell outside of the state. Door County cherries and beer, a perfect match.
