Yet another world-class selection from New Glarus, this is brewed with whole Montmorency cherries, Wisconsin-farmed wheat and Belgian roasted barley, then lagered in oak tanks, hopped with Hallertau and aged for a full year in the brewery. The resulting beer is a masterpiece of balance, flavor and complexity. Ruby in color, it is brimming with forward aromas and flavors of tart cherry, with subtle accents of baking spice and pie crust. The carbonation is high, partnering with tart acidity to keep the mouthfeel from feeling too heavy or sweet. The refreshing, mouthwatering finish is long and clean, with yes, a strong, fresh cherry flavor alongside hints of sweet spice and oak.
