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 pours reddish caramel with a pinkish hued milky head.   Definate cherry in the nose, hints of graham cracker.   Smells like a damn cherry pie!   Tart cherries up front, light oak blends in at the middle, finishing with a smooth sourness.   Some slight smokiness.   Yeah, this is tasty!   Good mouthfeel, full bodied, with a dry finish.   Clean, crisp, and very flavorful.   I'd have this one again for sure!   Thanks goes out to TChrome for the trade!

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 The belgian red pours a great red color with tan undertones. The aroma is cherries-real cherries, not the cherry robotussin you get out of a lot of these beers. The flavor is full of tangy sour cherries backed up with a nice, light malt body. The finish is dry and just a touch tart. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2004 Re-Rate 11/27/2004 Murky reddish body. Lasting pink head. The aroma is massive cherry. Revisiting this beer think that my initial exhuberence was a bit high. The flavor is totally cherry some light wheaty malt, but mainly cherry. I want to like it but it somehow does not mesh. It is too disjoint for me. The flavors are good but the sum is less than the parts.

Old Rating 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0 Very nice red body with a lovely, creamy, rocky, red hued head that clings to the glass in great sheets. The aroma of cherries is evident the minute the cap is popped. The flavor is extraordinary, cherries are dominatn at first then a new level of complexity opens up as sweet malt and even some hops. The body is medium and quite lively with a very strong cherry aftertaste that manages to not where out its welcome or become cloying. A very unique and very good beer.

I've been wanting to try this stuff for a year; and thanks to a buddy who brought it over the border I finally got to try this. Poured a cloudy amber with an almost red-orange hue. Very small head which dissappated repidly and no lacing. Aroma was totally cherries. Definitely doesn't taste like beer. More like a champaign. The flavor was similar to what you might expect from a belgian white with lots of cherries tossed in. Reminded me of a tart cherry pie with good carbonation. Not for an everyday beer, but for dessert on special occasions this would be a good choice.

Although not a Flemish sour in the traditional sense, this ber is outstanding. An amazing white with pink hued head and a light red/almost fuscia color lead to a cherry explosion on the first sip. Very fine champaign like bubble lend a tingle to the exerience. The cherry flavor is reminiscent of picking up a fresh cherry cider on a side road fruit stand in Door County or Traverse City MI

Thank you Jeremy (jgb9348) for this huge surprise!! Cloudy orange color with a lingering, yet small. Nice fruity aroma. What a taste. Great balance between sweetness and bitter/tartness. Cherries, among other fruits. Such a great taste. Doesn't kick you in the palate either, which is quite impressive. A very well made brew.

This is, quite possibly, the most exquisite beer ever brewed. It's certainly the best I've ever had. EVER. It is pure liquid ambrosia. I DREAM about this beer...And the reality is better. A true fruit ale hand-crafted in small batches from premium ingredients by a family brewery. The perfect, PERFECT balance of tartness and sweetness, with a slightly nutty aftertaste and an unbelievably smooth texture and robust color. Halfway between wine and beer and far better than either, with. Whatever you have to do to get your hands on a bottle or three of this delectable beverage, DO IT. You will NOT be disappointed. Experience this beer before you die, or you leave the world poorer.

BBB63, thanks so very much for sending me this beer in out first trade! What was that, 7 months ago?

Well smack my ass and call me Sally, this was one of the most delicious dessert beers I have ever had, and my girlfriend says Belgian Red it is now her Favorite beer of all time, but the single 750ml bottle was not enough for her.
Pours with a pale and foggy mahogany and crimson body, then amassing a frothy cloud with a sailors red sky delight behind it. - The aroma is so enticingly delicious that it is almost discussing. Jars of syrupy Maraschino Cherry’s and cinnamon fill the aroma. The use of a caramel malt brings it’s likeness as well as notes of vanilla to the sautéed to caramelized cherries. This beer has the most amazing tart bitter / sweet flavor, and woody oak company make this very much a Flemish Sour, but more of a syrupy sweetness here of a fruit beer. Spices to know end .. cinnamon …clove, sage, and some apple blossoms. Notes of apple ring out beside the cherries, as well as a yeasty, and toasty beady crust similarity. A light, sticky effervescence adjacent to the fresh tart country cheery pie make this a welcome treat for most any special occasion!
I believe it would be a sin to neglect giving a beer of this caliber world class scores- Truly a Delicacy!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 Deep ruby red with a lacey, quickly diminishing off-white head. Cherries in the nose. Strong, sweet cherry flavor with a slight sourness and tickling carbonation. Has a wine/champagne twist to it. An excellent, unique, absolutely delicious beer. The key is that the beer beneath all of the fruit is well-made, creamy, and could probably stand on its own, just like the beer beneath the Raspberry Tart.
