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.

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 can’t 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 it’s 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 couldn’t 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 McDonald’s 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.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Pours deep red with a medium head that remains. Aroma of fresh juicy cherries. Flavor is exactly cherry pie ala mode. Sweet, syrupy, slightly tart cherries with a bit of sweet cream. Very nice beer. My only complaint is that it is a bit to sweet and a sometimes reminisent of kool-aid which makes it get a little heavy near the end of the bottle. The first glass however is the most excellent dessert beer of all time.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 July 2007. Bottle. Rich ruby coloured body no head by the time it got to me but I will give it the benefit of the doubt based on past experience. Massive aroma of sweet cherries with a tiny note of cherry pits. Yowza! Complex cherry flavour are sweet then tart with just the vaguest hint of sourness. If I liked cherries more this would be a 10/10. Smooth palate is just a touch light but is perfectly appropriate for this beer. Aroma still fills the glass with just a drop left - amazing. Must... re-try... raspberry tart. +/3+/8-9/3+/16-18 - 4.4 <P>June 5 2004 Tiggmtl’s post-Mondiale: Bright ruby red, and nice off white head, less of the dregs of the bottle than the previous sample. Big cherry aroma with ever so slight cough syrup medicinal notes. Complex flavour profile, with multiple levels, tart around the edges of a big sweet cherry foundation. 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0 <P> April 2004 - Nice aromatics of sour cherries is my first impression. Flavour of sour cherries is dominant over a bit of malt and a sweet foundation. Amazing palate for this type of beer. Small sample courtesy of NorthYorkSammy. 8/4/8/4/16 - 4.0
