New Glarus Thumbprint Series Unplugged Enigma
New Glarus Thumbprint Series Unplugged Enigma. The beer pours a red-tinted amber color with a foamy white colored head that disappeared rapidly. The aroma consists of cherry, pie crust, sugar, and oak. The taste is puckering and has a strong tart cherry and raspberry flavor. Vinegar engulfs the tongue before actually causing it to salivate. The finish brings out an oak dryness and a sugary sweetness. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. The tartness of this beer mixed with the complexities of sugary fruit all bridged with an oak dryness led my tongue on a puckery joyride.
