COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally 5.1% - abv reduced to 4% sometime between 2009 and 2011.
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.

pours a slighty hazy amber/brownish red color with a nice small tan head. lacing is excellent. aroma is cherries and wheat. flavor is cherries and actually a bit one-dimensional but still good. palate is nice and full. i like this and itís defintely unique.

Cloudy red color, pretty light giving it some orange hues. Small head. Aroma is a solid, strong cherry with some rich malts. Ripe cherries, balanced sweetness and a good round mouthfeel. Very clean and balanced. Not overly complex. Great beer.

good god. cherries everywhere, gorgeous bright red with a pink foamy head. really tastes like cherry juice, with a surprising tartness that lingers around. absolutely perfect for a thanksgiving dessert beer--more like a fruit lambic than a fruit beer, but very good anyway, especially with a chocolatey dessert.

Jewel red out of the bottle with a redish/orangish foam head. The nose is all cherries and reminded me of the filling to a Hostess cherry fruit pie. Very bubbly on the tongue. My little sister thinks it tastes like a wine cooler and my Dad says it tastes like crap. I think it tastes like cherries. Very tastey real cherries and not the fakey artificial flavors in most beers. It does taste like a cherry pop. I like this well enough, but I donít get why it is so highly rated.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 Notes cannot describe my complete disgust with this beer. Iíve tasted it several times and I am still flabbergasted that people actualy enjoy this shit. I donít want to taste pie crust in a fruit beer. I do love the raspberry tart though, but that is very balanced and succulent.

Bottle courtesy of Styles with much thanks!!! This is just a superb beer. Pours a deep rubyish color. Head has pinkish hues. The head fades to a thin layer and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is purely cherry. Sweet and tart to the nose. Lighter bodied. Flavor is also fully of the cherries, a fruit I am not overly fond of. This plays so well in this beer though. Yes, I could drink this day in and out and be very happy.

Bottle, nice white bubbly head, average lacing, great smell of cherry candy, taste is nice and sweet with a hint of tart at the end. i agree that this is the best fruit beer that iíve had.

Hands down the best fruit based beer you will ever experience. Absolutely bursting with tart Wisconsin cherries. A perfect ice cold summer desert.

Cherries. Itís all about cherries. Overwhelming cherries. Immediately after popping the cap off the bottle, I got a strong whiff of, well, cherries. Once poured into a glass, the beer showed a cloudy reddish-brown with a foamy head. First taste is full-on, sour-sweet cherries, like the best possible cherry pie your grandma could make. The contrast between sweet and sour is amazing. Very smooth palate with "just right" carbonation. If I didnít know better, Iíd say this was a sparkling cherry wine, but with no detectable alcohol flavor. Goes down way too easily and leaves your tastebuds aching for more. Exceptional.

Man, i just love this beer. Deep cherry fruit on the nose. Deep red color with a foamy white head. Flavor just screams I am a great cherry.
