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.

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!

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.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Pours cranberry red with a fizzy pink head that’s 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 wouldn’t want to drink this all of the time because it’s 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 it’s own: absolutely gorgeous! Rich, delicious, vinous, sweet, and sour, the perfect picture of cherries! It’s 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, it’s 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!
