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.

750 ml bottle, shared by unknown. Thanks, anonymous! Pours a bright cherry red with quickly fading white head that leaves thin sudsy lacing. Aroma is massive and flows from the glass - cherries all day, every day. Muted sourness, complexity abounds. Flavor is same - an ode to the complexity of the fruit known as cherry. One of my favorite beers of all time, always an event to have a glass of this world class beer. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord tasting)

poured into wine glass. aroma: remember the cherry-dipped ice cream cones at DQ? that’s how this smells, except the cherry is more pronounced. oak/wood comes through, too. appearance: murky reddish brown. lovely carb bubbles. poor head retention, but ivory and creamy when there. taste: sweet vanilla and cherry; slightly bitter oak, gives way to soft cherry tart on the end. palate: fizzy, refreshing. long, smooth finish...

Like a tart cherry soda at first but with a nice rich profile underneath. Big cherry nose, maybe a little cough syrup. High carbonation is appropriate. Cherry skin in the finish. Bright red color. Belgian yeast character isn’t evident. Pleasant throughout and a nice holiday or dessert beer.

New Glarus nails another fruit masterpiece. The summer evening is a perfect pairing with this one. Dark red, almost brown, wispy white lacing around the edges. Aroma is a rich cherry pie filling. First sip is actually a malty caramel softness, then the intense tart fresh cherry hits you, with a very dry finish. The finish makes this one, could have been dangerously sweet and syrupy, but instead it is clean and makes me want another glass...

Waxed top bottle pours pinkish red. Aroma of cherries. Sweet, moderately tart and of course loads of cherry flavor. Sparkling and light. Spectacular!

Cloudy red with a ring of foam. Sour cherry aroma with a touch of baby powder. Deep cherry flavors are complex without being too tart. Sweet fruity finish. Thanks cards04. This is a beauty.

750ml waxed bottle shared by JohnGonk on my birthday. Pours a murky mohagony red color with a larger foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet and tart cherries, and some caramel malt. Taste is much the same. Sweet and tart cherries, cranberries, caramel malt, and mild funk. So good!!

Pours dark red, good head retention, very nice lacing, is syrupy, but not overly so. Sweet, cherry smell, faint menthol. Taste is cherry candy, cream soda, fresh.

UncleKorm (1006) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle poured a clear amber hue w/ minimal head to a ring no lacing. Huge boozy cherry aroma. Initial taste is moderate sweet w/ bold tart finish. Taste is a tapestry of flavor supporting a cherry pie filling. Full bodied and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottle shared. Pours clear red brown with a ring off white head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Flavour is over moderate sweet. Light medium bodied with high carbonation. Really don’t understand the big ratings in this, it’s like one of those sweetened Belgian Krieks that we all typically turn out noses up at.
