Bottle from Neal - thanks! Clear reddish pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is apple, berries, sugary fruit, and light tart. Taste is heavy with apple and cranberry and sugary fruit. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Sugary but very good in small pours - I cannot imagine anyone really making better fruit beers than New Glarus. kraddel (8763) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2013

Pours a deep red with minimal head after pouring. Smells of tart cherry and apple. Tastes almost the same as it smells. Drinks very similar to theBelgian Red and the apple in it does nicely too even it out. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Portentous cranberries and Montmorency cherries leap from the glass, sticking to the palate even after just one sip.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A crown of foam circles the clear garnet.
-The flavor profile is in line with the powerful aroma.
-This tastes like a super fruity soda of the best kind. But it doesn’t have the drinkability.
-Cranberries don’t have the appeal of raspberries or cherries in beer, imho. But this will definitely please all those looking for an intensely fruity experience.
-Mild acidity accompanies the sugars in the finish.
I feel like forever who hasn’t tried this beer be prepared... Doesn’t have the slightest resemblance to beer IMO
Poured a cherry amber color with no head and very little carbonation. Flavor is sweet, mix of cherries, crab Apple, cranberries, and a slight sourness which reminds me of being a kid working on an Apple orchard drinking fermented Apple cider. My wife loved it, I wasn’t in the mood for this on a cold snowy winter night but will give it another go in the summer dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2013
One of many New Glarus bottles courtesy of GhostFace. Deliciously sweet and tart, even in the aroma. Excellent balance and complexity. drowland (8955) - Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12/24/12. 750mL bottle thanks to cbfobes! Mostly clear dark amber pour with a small khaki head that fades. Nice fruity aroma with touches of tartness that are distinctly loaded with cherry and a lesser bit of cranberry. Lightly tart flavor with lots of cherry, apple, and light cranberry. It reminds me of Jolly Ranchers in a way, but it’s damn good. Tasty! tderoeck (10001) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013

Clear ruby red to copper red beer, small irregular light pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit sour, cherry candy, cherry syrup, sugary. MF: little carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, sweet, cherry candy, syrup, bitter touch. Aftertaste: sugary, cherry candy, syrup, a lemony sour touch, more candy sweetness. Not much different from all the sweet Belgian "kriek" ales...
Pours red with a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong apple and cherry. Taste is tart and fruity but with a significant amount of sweetness, a little much for my taste. It has a medium body with and is a bit fizzy. Overall this is a great beer, wouldn’t mind if it was a bit drier but if I had the opportunity in Chicago to purchase more of this I definitely would be.
