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.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a bright red with a thin white ring of head that dissipates quickly and some good pieces of lace. The aroma is a very strange fermented cherry. There is a decent Belgian yeast up there, and I think that’s what I don’t like here. Not what I was hoping for. The flavor, however, is unbelievable. All cherry, sweet and tart, and it reminds me immediately of a melted cherry Slurpee. This is what it’s all about! The mouth feel is very good and syrupy, with a light carbonation and that lingeringly tart cherry finish that is truly beautiful. This beer is pretty basic, but at the same time, scent aside, does exactly what it’s supposed to. Damn.

My favourite of the NG fruit beers. Very sweet, low carbonation, slightly sour cherries and some soft wheat malt - absolutely delicious.

Bottle: Pours cloudy, dark red-brown with a thick, dark, pinkish-beige head. Powerful cherry and cream aroma. Flavour is slightly tart, cherry malt, real, fresh cherry/juice.....spicy.... Massive cherry presence.....so much so that the dryness of the acids made me thirsty....AS I was drinking it.....I’m not normally a big fan of cherries, but this one is so spectacular in it’s presentation and colossal flavor, I can’t help but get on board and Love IT !!! Simply amazing.....

This is easily my favorite of the fruit beers from New Glarus. Pours a beautiful red color. Aroma of fresh door county cherries. Nice slick, but not that sticky, mouthfeel. Sweet semi tart cherry flavor. Cherry dominates the taste for this one. It’s sort of like drinking a thick fresh cherry juice. So darn delicious.

1pt 9fl oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Dark red with a pink-tinted off-white head. Pours like a thick rosé. Aroma is thick cherries, slightly sour. Flavor is much the same, sourness revealing itself in the long lasting finish. Palate is quite thick with a fair amount of effervescence. Very nice dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma is cherry, overpowered by Belgian yeast. Appearance is red, off white head. Taste is cherry, oh my god. A yeast or wheat presence. Best cherry beer I’ve tasted. Mouthfeel is refreshing, crisp and wonderful. Overall, it misses on aroma alone. It’s fucking amazing. The only beer I had twice at GToM.

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Enuratique. Pours hazy ruby with an off-white head. Aroma is cherries and marzipan. Flavour is medium sweet and light tartness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. Finish is fresh, cherries and just delicious.

Ruby garnet color. Clear and white head. Nice carbonation. Wonderful cherry aroma and sour tart flavor with cherries and wine like favors. Great balance as well.
