COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Red is a tapestry of flavor. This beer is brewed with whole Montmorency Cherries, Wisconsin farmed wheat and Belgian roasted barleys, lagered in oak tanks and balanced by Hallertau hops we aged in our brewery one full year. Over a pound of Door County Cherries in every bottle makes this beer uniquely “Wisconsin.” So unique, in fact, that we applied for a patent. Expect this beer to be ruby red, with a medium body that is highly carbonated and intense with cherry flavor and bouquet.

Bottle: Aroma is all cherries. Kind of has a cherry pucker smell. Pours a cloudy orangish-red with a small white with a little pink head that is gone somewhat quicly. Excellent lacing. Flavor is without a doubt cherry. It’s a bit more sour cherry in the finish. If you like cherries, you have to really like this beer. Only problem is that you need to have someone to share this with. A whole bottle to yourself kind of wears on you.

Thanks Mr Facto for sending this one down to the Noog. A dark red apperance. The smell is very cherry, sorry didnt mean to rhyme. The flavor is sweet up front but turns quite sour after a few sips. A sour cherry flavor dominates with some tart apples detected in the background. Not as sour as many of the fruit lambics, and not as sweet as many fruit beers. The balance seems to be perfect. Extremely good!

UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 Sample courtesy of Eyedrinkale. Hazy ruby color with a small pink head. Sweet cherry pie aroma. Flavor was sweet and tart cherries. Not heavy and cloying like some fruit beers. Very delicious and refreshing.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Aroma: cherry pie and cherry cough syrup--sugary sweetness, cherry pie filling and cherry pits and cinnamon
Appearance: dark cherry red, pink-cream head, lacing
Flavor: cherries, cherry pits and skins, very fruity, sugary-sweet like cherry pie filling
some raisin aftertaste, butter/cream, very smooth and bubbly, slight tartness
Overall: very, very good for a fruit beer!

Bam! The aroma is sooo right. Often aroma is appealing from complexity - not here. This aroma is appealing because it is so fresh and true in character. The appearance is as expected, completed by a carrot top. Flavor is equally tart and fruit sweet (not sugar sweet). No notes of oak detected. Finish was surprisingly warm, with decent hopping. Of course, this is a beer worth seeking.

Bottle courtessy of Eyedrinkale. Cherry color and red head. Flavor and aroma of sweet and tart cherries. Light and refreshing. But not very complex.

Unclear red colored beer with a tall peach colored head. Heavy sweet aroma with plenty of cherrires and marzipan tones. Sweet and sour cherry flavor with almond and marzipan. Rather tart and sharp and very flavorfull. An excellent and very tasty fruit beer! Thanks madsberg for sharing!
