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 “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.

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!

Ungstrup (30389) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2004
An unclear red beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma contains notes of marcipan and cherries. While the flavor contains notes powerful notes of fruit and cherries.

Bottled: Dusty red coloured. Light beige head with a red gleam. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, berries and malt. Sweetness, fruit, some sourness and malt in the flaovur. Very good balance in the sweetness. Ends on a dry and light acidic note. Refreshing. Thanks for this gem, CaptainCougar.

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.
