Bottle shared with a few buddies. Well I knew New Glarus delivers some great fruit beers, but I didn’t expect it to be this good. Fruit aroma right up front, sort of like smelling a cherry soda. Lots of apple in the flavor. Would be my absolute go to beer in the hot FL weather. Outstanding!! JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2013
I can’t imagine a beer I would rather drink on a regular basis moreso than this. The flavors are so huge and inviting that there is never too much. to polish off Sourguy83 (40) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Extremely sour fruity aroma, first apple then lambic fruity sourness. Excellent carbonation even in the small stupid gabf glass. Perfect blende of the fruits and the sourness, I felt like I was in the cranberry bogs. I would have stayed at the booth all night but the line would have rioted.

First off- thanks to my friend John, a Wisconsin native, for picking up a bottle of this at some random truck stop on his way back to Kentucky. He always makes a point to bring back some beer, even when I don’t ask. Appropriate that this beer is a "happy accident," since my friend picked it up without knowing anything outside of New Glarus being a brewery I request beer from often. A happy accident, indeed. Aroma: As if this review hasn’t went on long enough already- the apples remind me of a childhood aroma- an apple tree near my home growing up, which had this tart, but earthy scent. I’ve smelled nothing like it as an adult, until now. There’s also some cherry and just a hint of cranberry. Appearance: Murky apple butter coloured pour with a foamy bone head that settles into a pronounced tuft. Flavor: Mostly wild, lightly tart apple up front with the majority of the cherry coming in toward the finish; cranberry stays on the periphery, quietly complementing the apple and cherry. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: There’s nothing I’d change about this beer, and every drink of it was a reminder of it’s excellence. A beer worth seeking out.

Pour is a nice hazy amber with a cloudy head. Aroma is of tart of cherries with hints of apple and cranberries. At first sip I get the cherries but that gives way to tart cranberries followed by a nice crisp apple after taste. Leaves very clean fruity aftertaste. nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from the mighty Todd! It had been a while since I had anything from New Glarus, so having the pleasure of trying 3-4 new ones is quite a treat and this one is no exception. Tart fruit skin, light funk, stewed berries, pie crust, ethereal wood dance around a juicy, lively carbonated body... not to the extent of say cider... but there is a pleasant bite to it. Tart cranberry with spicy apple dances around in the front... nice plays between sweet, spicy, earthy and tart... very pleasing bready/tart/spicy finish. Being a big fan of both the Cran-bic and the Enigma, this is a very exciting beer for me to drink as I find elements of both here, perhaps a bit of the Belgian Red as well. If only it could exist all the time and outside of WI, but then again I think the last thing any NG fan would want if for them to be spread too thin and sacrifice their high quality/nuance. Top notch and another great example of what balance can bring. Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Wonderous fruit and sour fruit aroma, cherry cranbeery and slight green apple. Flaqvor is perfect tartness and sourness with the fruits letting you know they are purely evident. Sparkling everywhere from aroma flavor and mouthfeel. A+++++ Broncowaldon (129) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Had to rate this 100 th brew...my fav beer so far. Big balance of all kinds of fruits in aroma. Flavor is wonderful cranberries. Mouthfeel is pretty rich considering fruit can dry things out a bunch. Lively carbonation. Made you feel you were loving it in the bogs. And get this only 11.99 for 75cl bottle... Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Sweet tart cranberries with a well balanced apple cider to this one n the flavor. Intense cranberry and cherry aroma. Perfect carbonation.
