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.

Ruby red in color. First instinct was definately cherries. Reminds me of moms homeade cherry pie. Taste was very tart. Tastes like it smells...Cherries! Very good though. Makes your mouth dry and then really watery.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 Light crimson ruby red color, very pretty. The head has a nice layer of head with lacing, very pretty. The aroma is bright and sweet with all the notes of a fresh cherry pie including making to the finished product. The light funky tartness comes through in the nose as well. The flavor is just so damn fíin good, itís a blend of sweet, tart, fresh, fruit, sour all at the same time in perfect balance. Low vinous notes with more focus on sweetness and the massive cherry body. God damn this is delicious, I canít get enough! Finishes very tart, almost like shock tarts, makes me sweat just like those do.<P>ReRate @ Oakesí í05 Xmas Party: Fucking tasty.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Light ruby, smaller white head and just a hint of lace. Aromas of cherry, slighly sour, some malts, and a touch of a pie crust aroma. Almost a cherry cobler as well. There is also brown sugar apparent. Flavors are mainly a cherry pie filling, then a strong sour flavor. Strong malts along with it. There’s that crust again. This is crazy cherries. Thick syrupy palate, full body, and a sweet and sour finish of cherries. Nice. I thank Buck Dich for sharing, JagerQueen for transporting and Skaughty for providing!

pours a light purple with a thick head. smells like a cherry pie. a little too sweet that gets cloying as you drink it. i prefer the raspberry. this one isnt as well balanced as that one.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Pours a hazy deep red color, there is no real head, though there is a bit of wispy pink bubbles. A sweet full cherry flavor dominates the nose, notes of vanilla and sour cherry. No surprise, this beer has a sweet full flavored cherry taste. This beer is by no means traditional, but it is at least cherry sweet and not sugary sweet. This does not approach the complexity of a Flemish sour or a Lambic, but it is a well made exploding celebration of the cherry. This is a perfect after dinner/ desert beer.

The beer itself is quite sweet and refreshing, though reasonably viscous with a medium body. As a beer I might not have to much respect for this one, but it is damn tasty and a perfect desert beer. Has a sour, tart, fruity, tannic-cherry stone thing going on. The aroma is so intensely cherry, it is quite wonderful. I am gonna have to say that this would be much better, more authentic, if they had used a beer such as La Folie as the base beer. I really canít get over how intense the cherry flavor and aroma are. This is certainly quite an experience. As a desert it is a 4.3, but unfortunately my biases and prejudices come into play.

Significantly better than itís raspberry counterpart. Tastes like cherry flavored beer. Nothing horribly outstanding in my opinion. But then again I like Grainbelt so what do I know

Many thanks to LeonM for bring this back to Oz for me. Pours a medium dark cherry red brown, faintly hazy and large amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Mild medium very slightly artificially sweet cherry flavoured cough syrup aroma. Nice touch of cinnamon spice as well. Smooth but slightly clinging palate. Moderate to strong cherry sweet and unripe cherry sour start. Medium dry tarter middle before back to cherry ripe sweet yet clean finish. A touch on the sweet side for me and couldnít drink a whole lot of it but imagine it would pair well with certain foods especially some desserts

3rd time is a charm. I loved this stuff when the GABF came to Baltimore in 1998. Dark red, lasting white head. Nice lacing left behind. Nose is McDonaldís cherry pie, butter, crust and all. Flavors adds notes of spices, light vanilla, and of course, some sour cherry. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy, somewhat funky tannic finish. Amazing....

Thanks to Mr. Kimchee for dragging this over to my place. Pours a cloudy deep red with an off white short creamy head. Soft cinnamon and cherry aroma. Nice balace between the light sweetness and the boldness of the tart. Yeasty. Fruit and spice. Fantastic. A ridiculous tablespoon of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.
