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.

I have to give this a perfect score. Gorgeous deep amber color. Smells of fresh baked cherry pie, flowers, and a hint of vinegar. Very sweet, but with a nice balancing sourness. No evident hop flavor. Tastes of cherries, vinegar, bit of malt. Just an exceptional beer, easily the best fruit beer I’ve ever had. Hunt this one down!

Firm dark reddy maroon and a busy looking murk. Proper gummy cherry nose, Frisky and vibrant. Initial taste is rusty woody cheery, builds in sweetness and smooth tartness. Decent carbonation and rich vibrant mouthfeel. Finishes strongly with the earthy cheery, cooling tart linger. Solid although fairly spicy on the last murky pours.

Bottle thanks to Mike. Reddish brown with off white head. Intense cherry aroma, like cherry drops, not much else just cherry. Taste is similar, intense cherry. I’m a massive fan of cherry. This is delicious

New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red is a deep dark reddish brew with a nice head of pink foam. Nose is slightly sweet, but strong natural cherry aroma. Taste is more of the same. Strong, tasty amazing natural cherry at first tart, but finishes sweet6er. Body on the thin side and a bit fizzy. a very awesome cherry flavored brew.

Pours a brown tinted ruby red with a small off white head and good lacing. Strong cherry licorice aroma and cherry skin. Taste has fresh bing cherry and some sweetness with a mild tartness. Some cherry skin. Flavor is big and tasty. Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very good fresh cherry with more perceived sweetness than actual sweetness. The tartness helps to balance it nicely. Fantastic.

Color is a slightly hazy garnet color with some brown. Smell is very cherry, red vines, cherry cough syrup without the medicine, touch vanilla. Taste is a tart cherry at first that makes you pucker at first but then finishes sweet and refreshing. Medium mouth and carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Almost a burgundy colored pour with nearly nonexistent head. Aroma of dark cherries, malt, and staves. Flavor is woody, deep, richly, semi-sweet and tart cherries, almost like a cherry pie. This is straight cherry, just as it should be. Very enjoyable, not many beers can compare to it.

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.
