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.

ARH (706) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a teku glass. It smells like fresh, warm cherry pie. It pours a clear and rich, dark, deep red with brown hints, topped by a slightly off-white soapy head that reduces to a big but thin soapy bubble ring with a wispy surface and a light, messy lace. The taste is highly sweet with a medium light sour and very light bitter. Thereís quite a bit of soda carbonation to the thin, easy drinker. The medium light body is reminiscent of cherry soda (Cherry 7-up in particular) with a lemon lime touch. Itís crisp with a cherry pie, and slight spice, finish. Thereís a sugary astringent cherry pie linger to the aftertaste.

Pours a clear dark ruby color with small pink head and practically no lacing. Aroma is mostly cherries with a bit of honey. Taste is sweet at first with a tart finish. Body is medium with lively carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouthfeel An excellent dessert beer, unless you donít like cherries.

Clear dark ruby with a thin pink head. Big cherry and earthy wheat nose. Lovely candy and cherry flavor with some sweet earthy cherry and wheat and Belgian Amber grain note. Lovely.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a very cloudy mixture of orange, red and brown, with maybe even a slight hint of pink. The aroma smells highly of cherries (maybe even a bit of a cherry cough drop scent). Wow, the flavor starts off sweet, but ends with a bitter/tartness that I can taste predominantly in the back off my mouth. Mixed in with the sweet and tart is also a hint of spiciness.

Aroma is berries. Flavor is similar to Capri Sun. Not bad but is definitely a dessert beer.

Pours cherry red with aroma of tart cherries. Tart and sweet cherry flavor with some hint of oak. Just an excellent beer. Easily the best fruit beer Iíve ever had.

You can just stick an IV in my arm of this stuff and put me into a cherry coma. Anyone who rates this beer and doesnít like it can go away. Poured at the Cajun Cafe Festival into small snifters. Brilliant deep red wityh a pink head. Aroma is a cherry bomb with jam-like notes. The taste is a cherry bomb as well. It is slightly sweet but it is so good it doesnít matter. Thatís pretty much it. Medium body, mildly sweet, slight dryness at the end. Fucking amazing.

Received this as an extra in a trade. Deep hazy red pour with a light pink head. A huge fruit explosion on the nose. Cherry fruit rollups and strawberry preserve. Sweet, bright fruits. Lovely. Taste is similar. Sweet cherry and strawberry pie filling. Light acid to keep the sweetness in check. Light body, soft carbonation. Excellent.

Excellent fruit beer. Ruby colored. Cherry and oak in the nose. Cherry dominates the taste as well, but with light tartness and sweetness. Bubbly mouthfeel. Couldn't have done a better fruit beer.
