A great presentation right out of the gates with a wax coating the bottle cap. Very dark red appearance with a lot of sediment which poured a light lacy head of foam. Strong aroma of cherries and other fermented goodies. Initial taste of tart cherries, maybe even a slight rhubarb tinge, with a very pleasant and sweet aftertaste. I love this stuff!

Amazing! Tried it first when we went for the New Glarus Brewing Company tour. It was one of the samples after the tour that day. I am not normally a beer drinker but I rave about this to everyone. You would think that it may not mesh just right for your palate initally, but the cherry notes are perfect, and almost provides a lingering sweet cherry aftertaste, over the initial boldness. The carbonation level is perfect, it is lightly carbonated in my opinion. There is no slack in the brewing of this gem, batch after batch this stuff is perfect. We now get this for every single one of our dinner parties because it pairs nicely with practically anything. Both Beer and Wine lovers can really enjoy New Glarus Belgian Red! gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 Bottle, courtesy Ughsmash. Pours a dark red color, with peach highlights. Small, creamy tan head, and decent wet lacing. Aroma has a few bushels of cherries, with some strawberry and pineapple thrown in the mix. Has an exotic fruit punch feel. Flavor is full of cherries, and strong on delicious fruit. Spicy, too; cinnamon, nutmeg...basically just delicious cherry pie. Well-carbonated, very refreshing. Simply awesome. Could see myself drinking this all day, every day. uselesslogic (3) - , Iowa, USA - SEP 3, 2008 does not count
This beer is truly decadent. It’s like candy. Pour this into a wide-mouth glass to see how viscous it is and it’s dark ruby color. Take a big whiff - there’s no hop aroma there, but a deep, strong, dark cherry aroma. When drinking it, you’ll notice just how full bodied it is and how the cherry flavor coats your mouth. It’s almost like a sweet cherry syrup with fizzy undertones. It leaves you with a nice warm cherry flavor in your mouth. Imagine a cherry lambic without the funk aroma, flavor bite, or throaty aftertaste. This is a treat. I make special trips into Wisconsin for this. roguemonk (9) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2008 does not count
It had been a few years since I last had this beer. Shared one with some friends...It did not disappoint. Beautiful nose with the perfect melding of the cherries. Wonderful

I was amazed by this beer. The color was a nice dark reddish color, the flavor had an amazing "REAL" cherry flavor not the syrup like candy cherry flavor. I was really stunned how good this is and I will definitely buy again. NelsonPR (23) - MIlWAUKEE, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Aroma of fresh picked cherries, Red body with a pink head, Taste its cherries, cherries and cherries, tartness is present but not overwhelming.
One of the best a ever taste. Cheers to New Glarus ads135 (4883) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Wonderful. Pungent, sweet, sour. A fruit beer that doesn’t succumb to a candy-like cherriness. The hallertau and "native" cherries seem to be made for one another. BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
From bottle : WOW. I have been waiting forever to drink this and finally got around to it. It was everything I had built it up in my mind to be. Great pour with carbonation and a reddish fluffy head. Aroma is fabulous and taste is a wonderful fruity blend of cherries and the like. There is nothing I do not like about this and wish it was easier to get my hands on. o_Merlin_o (225) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2012
A near perfect beer. Wonderful cherry and apricot aroma, topped off with a creamy off-white head. Absolutely delightful acidic taste all over the tongue, especially on the sides. Pleasant aftertaste. I say ’near perfect’ because of its high carbonation. Expect lots of burps when drinking this awesome brew.
