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.

The brown-red color of pure cherry juice and a light fizz atop. The aroma is cherry, vineous and sweet emissions with a hint of anticeptic. Flavor is tart with aged, ripe, seductive cherries. Contagious.....salacious.....outrageous!! A thick smooth maltiness that coats and numbs the mouth. The flavor is simple enough, while the palate is the real champion here. The sweetness is subtle yet very well balanced with the tart. Really a fine beverage and well worth the cash, stash and anticipation.

Marzipan aroma with cherry stones, slightly woody too. Sweet start with a big fruity cherry flavour. So balanced, medium bodied and refreshing. Red with a short pink head. Wonderful fruit beer.

Bottle at the London/joet Gathering, thanks to Maeib for bringing this. Pours a reddy brown. Light carbonation, no head. The aroma is heavily of marzipan and cherry, an amazing aroma I’ve never smelt in a beer before. The flavour is incredibly fruity and pleasently sweet, thick body and some balancing sourness. So tasty, fruity, lovely. Perhaps the best kriek I’ve tried.

Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. Thanks to Kevin42 for sending this over and for enabling me to share it with the other English raters. What a beauty! The aroma is big on cherries and marzipan. The whole experience is like liquid battenburg cake. The beer itself is a slightly cloudy red colour. The taste as mentioned is high on marzipan but there is also toffee and cherries. It is so tasty and so easy to drink. I really liked this one.

St Louis, Chapeau, Floris, and now New Glarus. I love these easy drinking beers with that wonderful balance of sweet and sour. This is, however, one of the better producers, and - as they are respected by other beer geeks - I don’t need to feel awkward about admitting I like them. Morello cherries, Christmas candle wax, marzipan, black cherry jam, Christmas spice - frankincense. O my! Beautiful taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful balance of sweet and sour. Mmmmm. Nice one.

01.31.05 750ml bottle, champagne flute at first, then tumbler. Reddish/copper/amber, clouded; big tan head with purple and pink hued highlights. Aroma is dominated by cherries: ripe, overripe, mascerated, dried, and delicious cherries. Coinciding biscuity notes make the whole package remind of cherry pie! Quite tart, great balance but tending towards sweet/tart, finishes even more tart and cleansingly astringent. Flavors burst with fresh fresh fruit, lightly acetic; lingering yeast and vinous hints. Amazing beer!

Best fruit flavored beer in America and right up there with the best Lambics.

Wow! Full cherry aroma with nice acidic sharpness. Pours a beautiful deep hazy red--exactly what you expect a cherry beer to look like. Very little head though which was dissapointing. Nicely carbonated though. Flavor is very fruity, very cherry but it is still beer--not soda pop. A classic American fruit beer!

Lots of cheery in the nose, very inviting. It was a very nice red colour with only a small ring of foam. The flavour was dominated by cherries, with a nice and not overpowering sourness. There was also some nice carbonation that danced across my tounge. A great fruit beer.

Smells of canned cherry pie filling. Ginger ale carbonation, sour cherry aftertaste, zero head. Tasty beer, and I’d try it again (one glass only).
