UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Ok, I enjoyed another bottle tonight with the wife. We both agree that the aroma is of cherries, butter and brown sugar... quite simply, homemade cherry pie. The flavor is of cherry pie as well; slightly salty crust and all. I had to increase my score. This is just excellent beer. To drink it is like eating homemade cherry pie without the messy cleanup. Best fruit beer I’ve ever tried.

Jesus what a beer. Nice ruby pour, not much of a head. Aroma of cherries and more cherries. Flavor is pure tart cherry fruit roll ups. Damn this one is so delicious. YES! DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
#900.......A big thank you to JPDIPSO for this one. First of all, let me get this over with and state that I preferred the Raspberry Tart ever so slightly to this one, but this one kicks ass also (I gave the RT a 4.7, this one gets a 4.6). New Glarus beers absolutely rule. This one poured ruby red with a big, fluffy, pink head. Aroma of big cherries, slight hops and malt. Tastes incredible, with a great cherry flavor backed up by a solid malt backbone and some great layered finishing hops and tartness. Finishes medium bodied, slightly tart. The hand-poured wax on the bottle is a nice touch, also. This beer just screams quality, complexity, and balance. It isn’t some gimmicky crap, either. As it warmed, the flavor profile became even more complex, with noticable malt, hops, of course the cherries. I’ll take this, and the raspberry tart, over any wine any day of the week, hands down. allmyvinyl (10932) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015

Look is very shady murky brown like mud almost. Tan head. Sweet cherry scent, some bitter almond. Sweet and still very sour taste. Sour aftertaste. Very low bitterness. Feels like a non-alcoholic cherry soft drink. Taste a bit like cherry-coke.
Bottle 1 pt 9 fl oz, thanks to rhialistic! On Saturday October 13
Hazy copper color, tan head. Cherry pips, raspberry, fruity scent, wonderful. Sweet, fruity, berry taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Thx! to Kraddel. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Dark red, very dark strawberry look, fading dark pink head. Huge cherry candy in the nose, very sweet & candy-like, incredible & nothing else. Taste is hugely sweet cherry candy, good kind of sweeteners, pure candy, little else flavor-wise, incredibly sweet spices,.. Light very easy to drink. Pure candy, reminds me a bit of Lindemans Kriek. Love it. Fin (10840) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle shared with Casey, Tracey and Loz at a great American beer tasting evening 11-04-08 hosted by Casey and Tracey, cheers mate! Slightly sour cherry milkshake type aroma with good yoghurt like qualities, really interesting. There is the most delicious flavour to this, I had this vision of Oompah Loompah’s loading bucket after bucket of wonderful fresh ripe cherries into the cask whilst singing a merry little ditty, that’s the thing about this beer it certainly takes you off elsewhere with every sip. A wonderfully sharp but sweet, fruity but soft chocolatey taste to this beer I loved it, many thanks to Casey for sharing this classy beer. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 July 2007. Bottle. Rich ruby coloured body no head by the time it got to me but I will give it the benefit of the doubt based on past experience. Massive aroma of sweet cherries with a tiny note of cherry pits. Yowza! Complex cherry flavour are sweet then tart with just the vaguest hint of sourness. If I liked cherries more this would be a 10/10. Smooth palate is just a touch light but is perfectly appropriate for this beer. Aroma still fills the glass with just a drop left - amazing. Must... re-try... raspberry tart. +/3+/8-9/3+/16-18 - 4.4
<P>June 5 2004 Tiggmtl’s post-Mondiale: Bright ruby red, and nice off white head, less of the dregs of the bottle than the previous sample. Big cherry aroma with ever so slight cough syrup medicinal notes. Complex flavour profile, with multiple levels, tart around the edges of a big sweet cherry foundation. 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0 <P>
April 2004 - Nice aromatics of sour cherries is my first impression. Flavour of sour cherries is dominant over a bit of malt and a sweet foundation. Amazing palate for this type of beer. Small sample courtesy of NorthYorkSammy. 8/4/8/4/16 - 4.0 cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Bottled at Bull and Bush Xmas tasting in Denver, Colorado. Very red appearance with an unbelievably strong cherry aroma. Mildly sour cherry flavor thats quite but not overally sweet. Quite carbonated and very delicious.
