1 of 2 bottles purchased at random WI gas station during Dells spring break trip. Holy crap was this good. Great fruit flavor with just enough tart sourness to make it great. The sourness and barrel treatment did not overpower the fruit. Awesome. Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours red orange. Aroma of apple and cherry. A light white foam. Sweet apple taste with a cranberry tart flavor. Slippery mouth feel.

750ml waxed bottle into a HF wine glass. Thanks Yamar68!
A - Pours a clear dark red body with a fingers worth of purple stained foam. Leaves behind a patchy cap and some solid lacing with a swirl. Looks very juice like but with an excellent head.
S - Tart cranberries, ripe apples, some cinnamon spice from the cherries, and that’s it. Ripe, fresh, and juicy are all terms that come to mind. This might blur the line between beer and fruit juice, but who cares when it smells this great.
T - Pleasantly tart cranberries, ripe apples, and some cherries and spice on the finish. Just a touch of malts can be found here but otherwise this is like drinking a sparkling cran-apple juice. Mouth feel is medium bodies with low carbonation. I’m not sure if its detrimental or not but it does feel somewhat syrupy. That does make it a bit of a chore to drink solo but the flavor is so amazing that slowly sipping on it is somewhat welcomed.
O - New Glarus simply kills it with their fruit "beers". This happy accident ale certainly is a happy accident. Belgian Red really impressed me and making up for the lack of cherries with cranberries and apples is just genius. Just the right amounts of sweetness and tartness .

Bottle from Ben, thanks! Pours dark reddish brown with low head. Smell is sweet dark fruits, taste is crisp apples and sweet berry with nice acidity on the finish. a bit too sweet for me. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bomber. Cranberry color with no head. Dark sweet fruit aromas. Dark fruits and apples. Amazing. camborne (1029) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2013
So good. Nose was bouquet of red fruit. Taste was amazing. Sweet and fruity with a hint of cranberry sourness at the end. Could not drink everyday but wonderful change of pace beer AdamChandler (5181) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Thank you Adam. Enjoyed at cellar temp with friends
A - Blood red, HUGE creamy head that fades to a still nothing
S - The amount of apple pulp in this beer is amazing. it’s mind-blowing how apple-y this is. You get some raspberry tartness as well
T - Wow. Reminds me of Juicy Juice. Apple and cranberries are fantastically blended. It’s sweet, tart, lovely
M - thin body, slick and sweet finish like a fruit juice
O - It’s hard to review this beer...it’s just all fruit juice with carbonation and so sweet and delicious. very impressive but I’m happy to be splitting this with a few friends.
