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.

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...

Aromas of umm.... lets see.....Ummm......CHERRIES!!!! This has the most insane aroma of fresh cherries and the flavor is the same. Although a little life saver like, the flavor is still amazing. Probably the best fruit beer one can have.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
Wild, great aroma, but not really to my taste. Lots of berries, not much grain. Hints of lactics in the finish? Very cool, but not really my style.

OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Bottle, Great nose, Cherry like those sour candy things and a whiff of toffee. Orangey red color, tad hazy. Sour sweet flavor. Tart. Chery dominates. Thin body, kinda syrupy. Sweet dry finish. Iím diggin it, no sign of "belgian" to me. Thought it was better at cooler tempertures. Iíll take one anytime.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Pours a deep red with a small head round the edge. Aroma is of fresh cherries and it tastes almost like fresh cherry pie, especially as it warms. Like a sweet kriek. Smooth, and filling.

IndianaRed (2738) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Bottle Celebrating my #100 Very little head or lacing. Aroma is an intoxicating sweet/tart cherry that starts to fill the room before I bring the glass up to my nose. Flavors are cherry of course but a bit earthy like skins or stems. Sweet with lingering tart trailer. Rate is from memory a few days ago. Will have another soon and update.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 2, 2004
(750 ml bottle: ScottVaculaís Barleywine Party í04) Simply an incredible beer, a far better treat than any dessert; Tart cherry flavor of this beer dominates, but a sharp tangyness springs up in the finish; Somewhat tart, but the strong sweetness stays dominant throughout; The same tartness is also present in the nose, but itís an aroma of pure cherry pie filling all the way; The tangyness is much more prevalent as the beer warms; pleasant and enjoyable cherry lambic; Dark red in color and quite cloudy; The head is light tan with a slightly red hue

#900.......A big thank you to JPDIPSO for this one. First of all, let me get this over with and state that I preferred the Raspberry Tart ever so slightly to this one, but this one kicks ass also (I gave the RT a 4.7, this one gets a 4.6). New Glarus beers absolutely rule. This one poured ruby red with a big, fluffy, pink head. Aroma of big cherries, slight hops and malt. Tastes incredible, with a great cherry flavor backed up by a solid malt backbone and some great layered finishing hops and tartness. Finishes medium bodied, slightly tart. The hand-poured wax on the bottle is a nice touch, also. This beer just screams quality, complexity, and balance. It isnít some gimmicky crap, either. As it warmed, the flavor profile became even more complex, with noticable malt, hops, of course the cherries. Iíll take this, and the raspberry tart, over any wine any day of the week, hands down.
