Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh New Glarus, the creme-de-la-creme of fruit beers!   ;D

I just traded some black butte XXIV for some NG raspberry tart, Belgian red, and some Enigma...

I am in beer heaven.  This is what they will be serving in heaven.  ;D ;D ;D

Apple enigma wasn't available, but I have a future trade already arranged...  8)

I went to Wisconsin for the first time this summer. Had to swing through the NG brewery. Its an amazing place. I'm not a huge fan of all of their beers but they certainly do have the fruit beers nailed down. I sent a huge box of them home and still have 2 bottles of the Belgain Red waiting for a special occasion. Good, good stuff. Nothing else like it.

I am not the biggest fan of fruit beers, but this one is definitely great.  I just bottled a Belgian Dark Strong the other night and for the last 2.5 gallons I dumped in a bottle of Wisconsin Red (minus one small glass).  Even warm and flat the BDS with cherry ale was very good!  I am very excited for it to come to maturity.
