4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle, but unfortunately had to drink from a pint glass. Bottle courtesy of RJ and Janet - shared with BF. Pours dark red, with little carbonation. Subdued notes of cinnamon and malt, but cherry obviously overpowers. Tastes of real cherries, not the canned stuff. This truly is a fantastic beer, but one glass is enough. I could not drink one after another......... had to switch to dancing man and crackd wheat. Again, New Glarus fails to disappoint.

The strange thing about this "beer" is that I don’t like it, yet I rated it high. Its very complex in cherries and is quite good for a kriek lambic, but the problem is that it’s a kriek lambic. The only stlyes of beers that I hate are Lambics, fruit, and the dreaded scotch ale; too sweeeet. I recommend this beer, however, if you prefer sweet over bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2009 750mL bottle. This is a pretty awesome beverage, but probably the least beer-tasting beer that I have had that is actually this good. Pours a deep garnet red with a medium pinkish-white head. Aroma is very vinous, full of dark cherries, and very sweet. Flavor is sweet cherries with a slightly slick mouthfeel. This is a great beer, but I’d like it to be a bit lighter bodied and more carbonated. An awesome brew that I wish I had regular access to. Delicious.

Pours a dark mahogany with a small head. Immediate aroma reminded me of Cherry cough syrup. After a bit the tanginess disappeared and it smells more like grandma’s cherry pie. Tastes very much like sour cherry pie flavor with a sweet finish.

Like the raspberry, this cherry beer is a perfect representation of a sour cherry beer. Find it and savor every drop.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 this beer not only makes me proud to be a Wisconsinite but also reminds me how great of a state WI is for food, beer, and many other things. this beer pours a deep, rich red color with an absolutely amazing aroma of sweet cherries...the flavor is packed with cherries, but perfectly balanced, not generic tasting!!!! well balance carbonation and sweet, silky finish....one of the best beers i have ever had.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Like a tart cherry soda at first but with a nice rich profile underneath. Big cherry nose, maybe a little cough syrup. High carbonation is appropriate. Cherry skin in the finish. Bright red color. Belgian yeast character isn’t evident. Pleasant throughout and a nice holiday or dessert beer.

YUM! It smells of sweet candy, Juicy Juice Cherry with floral undertones. Pours golden copper with a pink tinge and sticky lacing. Taste is tangy, tart, sweet, apples, cherries and spice. It’s like drinking a jolly rancher! Minimal carbonation. Could drink this for dessert!

Good head red color hint of cherries I think this is a good beer kind of sweet with a slight tart flavor.
