(bottle 8/22/11). Cloudy red color. Medium off white head. Moderate sweet cherry aroma. Flavor of the same, with light bready malt and light tartness. Avg duration. Light dry finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing. conway (2210) - - MAR 14, 2013
Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Very tasty. Tart and sweet simultaneously. Maybe even a little vinous. Only complaint is that it's a little tough to get through a big portion as the sweet/tart thing wears on your palate. Fantastic in reasonable doses.

Thanks for the share Jordan. This brew was just up front delicious and refreshing. Lots of tart cherries and a sugary fruity finish make for a fun, delectable dessert drink. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Thanks to UMNBeerhunter for this as an extra!
A: Pours deep, deep cherry red. Says over a pound of cherries in every bottle - it shows. Thick quilt of pink-tan fine foam comes and goes with tips of the drink. Excellent clarity.
S: Tart cherries with slight yeasty scent. Very mildly syrup smell.
T: Yep, cherries. Like a liquid jolly rancher. Very, very nice.
M: Thick, syrupy, light to moderate carb. This beer sticks to my mouth. Man this would be perfect with a dollop of Cherry Garcia in it.
D: Absolutely a digestif for a warm afternoon. Slowly sip while reading a book. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 On tap at brewery tasting room. Deep crimson and cordial-like. Aroma is generic fruit. Taste is sweet, fruity, mild tart. Couldn’t drink a lot if this but delicious. Finish is sherbet fizz. Overall, definitely more fruit than sour. Very mild tang. Solid and drinkable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks kerenmk. Pours orange to red with a medium orangey head, aroma of cherry, strong, sweet and fresh, flavor is very sweet with sherry and cherry, almonds, zesty and tasty, medium to full bodied. BoBoChamp (5754) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2014
75cl, no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with cherries, thx alot to Eric for bringing this over!, complex fruit brew, sweet/sour/fruity and slightly woody/vinous/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle: Dark ruby, blushing cherry color with an off-white chunky foam that seems to either have a slight tint of lavender to it, or the red beer below is playing tricks on me. Straight up cherry aroma. Lightly tart, mostly sweet, almost like a cherry pie filling that needs just another half cup of sugar. Small underscore of brown sugar & grain. Flavor is the same way, just a huge orgy of cherries hammer fucking every single nook & cranny in your oral orifice. Lightly tart & acidic up front & in the finish with a long, drawn out sweetness that bridges the gap in between. The somewhat abrupt, zesty finish ensures that the sweetness of the beer doesn’t wear you down too quickly. While I prefer Raspberry Tart (only because I enjoy raspberries more than cherries, really), this is a beyond solid staple in New Glarus’s huge portfolio of awesome fruit beers.

Pours a dark ruby-red with a finger of off-white foam. Moderate lacing.
Nose is a blast of tart cherries, some caramel notes, and a hint of muskiness. Taste is tart up front with an underlying sweetness that’s pleasantly balanced. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Tasty brew. RRistow12 (980) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby red when pinkish head. Aroma is strong cherry nose. Taste is a nice mix of subtle sweetness and medium tartness. Nice long subtle tart finish. Great fresh cherry flavor. Definitely the best cherry beer I've had.
