COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally 5.1% - abv reduced to 4% sometime between 2009 and 2011.
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.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a cloudy reddish brown from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big sweet cherries, malt, and sweet fruit. Taste is big on the fresh fruit, cherry amazing, like cherry ice cream, wow. This is one of the best fruit beers I have ever had.

750ml bottle pours a deep reddy brown color with a bit of head. Huge cherry flavor, nice sweetness and a little cherry tartness.

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to LKS, 24/01/14. Reddish amber with a moderate off white/crimson covering. Nose is cherry skins, almond, tarte berry, cherry bakwell, vanilla. Taste comprises glaced cherries, sweet licks, lightly soured cherry, red berry compote, jammy berry licks. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweetish close. Decent fruit beer but just don’t get these New Glarus fruit bombs anywhere near the 4 mark like most folks seem to manage!

Fukito (908) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 24, 2015
Pours a clear shinny ruby/ red with a nice pink medium head. Aroma is strong raspberry with some lemony notes. Flavor is very balanced raspberry sweetness/ tartness with a nice and gentle sour aftertaste. Medium to light palate, really drinkable and tasty. Another winning fruit beer from NG.

Nocturne (1172) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
750ml bottle. Aged 8 months by me. Deep, dark red with off-white head. Aroma is still a bit syrupy but head and shoulders above any non-lambic cherry beer I’ve had so far. Taste is really gorgeous. Has a sticky malt base, maybe a slightly sour brown ale, with juicy cherry goodness throughout. Sweet but never overly so. Why can’t all fruit beers be this good?

Red clear pour from 22oz bottle at home. Cherry cherry cherry. I don't like fruit beers but this is fantastic. Not too much - like a perfect fruit punch. So good.

ARH (830) - 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. There’s 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. It’s crisp with a cherry pie, and slight spice, finish. There’s a sugary astringent cherry pie linger to the aftertaste.
