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 ďWisconsin.Ē 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.

Very interesting...nice rich red color with a thick off-white head that diminishes somewhat quickly leaving a considerable amount of lace. Good fruity aroma with a slight hint of something metallic. The flavor is a well balanced tart with good bit of "cherry-ness." Not for everyday consumption, but certainly a great special occasion brew.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Pours cranberry red with a fizzy pink head thatís mostly diminishing. Nose is loaded with tart cherry and some spice. Light bodied effervescent and refreshing. I rather enjoyed it.

Very interesting brew. This is my first time sampling a fuit beer. Tastes like a lambic beer, wine & cherry soda all rolled into one. Perfect blend of sweet & tartness with a semi-dry finish on the palate. This brew has a wonderful cherry aroma and is very "rich" tasting. I wouldnít want to drink this all of the time because itís a little too heavy for me, but other than that this is an excellent and very unique tasting beer.

The first time I sampled this brew was a blind taste test vs. Cantillion at a local bowling alley/restaurant/theater/music venue/beer and wine bar. NG came out on top! Color is a rich, ripe, bright cherry red, with a short and soon departed head. Aroma is in a class of itís own: absolutely gorgeous! Rich, delicious, vinous, sweet, and sour, the perfect picture of cherries! Itís utterly wonderful, and a joy to drink in deep with the nose! On the palate, other tranformations occur: WOW! Dazzling, uplifting, and lovely! By tranformative, I mean that something new occurs in me, I am 100% happier by drinking this elixir, my mood is elevated, every atom has an energized attitude! Several waves of sensation occur throughout the consumption of this ale, it jumps and jiggers in the mouth, surges in and sallies out. The taste continues, and the feeling wells up in and rides over every square inch of the body that is apt to perceive sensation! Finish is a bit tartish, but what do you want, itís cherries, man! Wow...this was perfect, and I felt that the 750 ml wax finshed bottle was a bit stingy! Hook me up to a keg of this stuff!

Red in colour with thick white head. Big cherry aroma and bitter cherry tatse, followed by metalic mouthfeel. I have decided the cherrys are only good with coconut and choclate and called "Cherry Ripe"!!!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 Bright cherry red with a small pinkish head. Poured a bit thick, which made me think this was going to be a sweet thing I wouldnít want. Aroma is tangy cherry with mellow maltiness. The flavor of fresh cherries just jumps out at you. I mean the whole cherry, stems, pits, dirt, skin, everything. There is a bitterness to offset all of these cherries, that makes it a bit sour and dry. Noting to complain about. After having this stuff a few times, Iíve had to lower my rating a little. The last two bottles have tasted like cherry pie filling. Just too sweet.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 this beer not only makes me proud to be a Wisconsinite but also reminds me how great of a state WI is for food, beer, and many other things. this beer pours a deep, rich red color with an absolutely amazing aroma of sweet cherries...the flavor is packed with cherries, but perfectly balanced, not generic tasting!!!! well balance carbonation and sweet, silky finish....one of the best beers i have ever had.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Pours red/brown, with a small, white head. Aroma is cherry pie and/or cherry danish. Taste is also cherry pie...very intense cherry favor that turns a little sour and dry at the end. This is truly amazing. Like drinking a cherry pie. Thanks to footbalm for this one.

Cloudy rusty red. Creamy light beige head w/ slight reddish hue. Excellent lace. Robust aroma of black cherries & cinnamon rolls. Thick, syrupy feel. Complex black cherry flavour w/ undertones of iron, wood, &, yes, cinnamon rolls. Lightly sour w/ a semi-dry finish.

Poured cherry red with thin red head...smelled of butter and pastry...tasted rich and delicious...I donít like cherries and I donít like fruit beer, for that matter I donít like sweet things....this was great...I couldnít drink more than 1 glass, but it tasted like a cherry fried pie...
