COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber full bodied beer is first brewed with 10 year old aged hops to remove any hop flavor but still provide the preserving effects of the hop. Then it is fermented with cherries. Post fermentaion we condition the beer on top of 800 pounds of cherries. We get our fruit from Door County, Wisc. The result is a huge cherry flavor without forgetting that we are drinking a beer.

Autumn Brew Review 2008
This is about as close as I’ve tried to the New Glarus Belgian Red. Slightly more tart, almost like a lambic, but the flavor was pretty exquisite. Cherry pie in a beer. I’m normally not a huge fan of fruit beers, but this one was pretty damn good! My wife loved this and was disappointed when they ran out. They gave her the Cherry Stout instead and she was disappointed, as this beer was a special release around 3 PM in the afternoon.

It poured a cloudy, murky, pinkish tan, not an attractive color by any means, with about half an inch of pinkish white head. The appearance score is helped out by the excellent lacing it left behind. Prominent cherry in the aroma. The taste is all cherry - both tart and sweet. Although I couldn’t taste any underlying ’beer’ flavor, it certainly didn’t taste like wine, mead, or cider. It was similar to New Glarus cherry ale, but a little less cherry (not much) and a little more tart. Very delicious in any event. Medium to full in body, carbonation is a little on the light side, but still solid.

Draft ABR 07. Poured a dark ruby red. Nice earthy sweet and tart nose. Not possible you say well it is. Very nice flavor that exudes the earthy side of sweet cherries as well as a hint of brown sugar and tart cherry.

The aroma has both malt and cherry. The taste is perfectly tart and sour. The palate is somewhat strong bodied. Overall, a great beer. It be awesome if Fitgers would brew this as a regular beer.

Draft at the Brewhouse. I’m going to classify the "Cherry Batch 2200" that I tried over the weekend under this label. I loved the novelty of it; the color was a perfect cherry red and the aroma was pitch-perfect: sour cherries. However, the predominant flavor of the beer was to similar to Robitussin or Vicks 44. I haven’t had real Kriek yet but I assume it’s a little better than this.
