Bomber poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a deep, rich mahogany red-brown, and forms a dense, fluffy multi-finger head of off-white foam that lasts and lasts. Lacing is off the hook.
Smell: Fruit greets the nose cheerily, a burst of cranberries and cherries, all just slightly sour. Beneath, tones of sweet red apple and caramel malt buttress and support the sour fruits.
Taste: Just a sublime fruit beer. This opens much like an apple juice made with gala and honeycrisp, which has had a significant amount of cherry-cranberry preserves dissolved in it. There are faint hints of tart sour to the fruit, and the barest whiff of farmland funk along for the ride. All of that dances atop a solid platform of sweet caramel malt flavor. The finish and aftertaste are a mix of the fruit juice and malt aspects. Sublime.
Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy, smooth, clingy, sticky, and yes - that bit of word salad adequately sums up the feel.
Overall: "Sublime" has already been mentioned, so it shall be left at that. Personally, I’d put this in my regular drinking rotation, were I closer to Wisconsin. RRistow12 (918) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky copper ruby color with whitish head. Aroma is apple, cranberry, cherry as expected. Taste is a nice balance of sweetness and tartness. Taste similar to aroma with some strawberry as well. Excellent fruit beer as expected from New Glarus.

Bottle shared by Pinsky. Pours a darker reddish color with a slightly pink hue. Very fruity on the aroma. A little tart. Raspberry, cranberry, and plenty of apple. Kind of like an ocean spray crossed with a beer, but also much better than that. Quite enjoyable. I could drink a ton of this. Finds that sweet, tart, fruity, and drinkable balance. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
[7500-20150814] Bottle. Super cherry cherry cherry aroma. Hazy, brown red body with a quick foamy white head. Cherry juicy flavour. Medium body. Wow, this is a cherry bomb. (10/3/8/4/17) 4.2+

My 100th rating. Amber pour from a 750 bottle with a black wax top. The brew is fantastic. Amber pour clear with sediment on bottom. The sediment stay compact at bottom. Poured with good carbonation and pink head. Cranberry and other ripe fruits filled the snifter glass I poured it in. The flavor was incredible with a slight tartness and cranberries and a wine like character. The finish was fruity and wine lie so multi dimensional. Hard brew to get but lucky enough to get a few.

Aroma of apples and faintly cherries, taste is apples up front followed by a perfect amount of cherries, after taste is moderately tart. So good! Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Brilliant mix that delivers, and only mildly sour. Lovely apple bouquet, cherry in the finish. Wonderful reddish colour. Right amount of carbonation. Hoprider (715) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Beautiful clear dark ruby red pour with a light pinkish head. Nose: Jeeesus this is candied. Bonbons! Taste of sweet apples and tart raspberries and cheeries too. I like this a little too much I’m afraid. Damn this is gewd..! The mouthfeel is light and it suits the sweet fruit profile well. Some almond liquor and apple peelings, cerry mulled wine. Nice and surprisingly crisp aftertaste. Drinks easy for such a candybomb. Love this! RasmusOtt (2817) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours hazy brown red with an off-white head. Aroma has loads of fruit and is on the edge of appearing artificial to me. Apples, cherry, candy, strawberry and more candy. The taste is jammy with notes of apples, strawberries and candy as well. I will never love these beers and I really do not understand the hype around this - Yet it is not particularly bad in any way.
