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 “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.

Strong cherry flavors. Reminds me of cherry pie and cherry slushies. Tart and sweet. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to UMNBeerhunter for this as an extra! A: Pours deep, deep cherry red. Says over a pound of cherries in every bottle - it shows. Thick quilt of pink-tan fine foam comes and goes with tips of the drink. Excellent clarity. S: Tart cherries with slight yeasty scent. Very mildly syrup smell. T: Yep, cherries. Like a liquid jolly rancher. Very, very nice. M: Thick, syrupy, light to moderate carb. This beer sticks to my mouth. Man this would be perfect with a dollop of Cherry Garcia in it. D: Absolutely a digestif for a warm afternoon. Slowly sip while reading a book. Very nice. Serving type: bottle 02-26-2011

Clear Ruby red with a fizzy head and high carbonation. It smells like sweet cherry fruit juice with moscato. It also tastes like cherries with some mild malt and barley notes. Very sweet tasting. Body is light and a bit syrupy but it doesn’t hurt the quality. Quite tasty!

750ml bottle thanks to bytemesis! Pours nice hazy ruby red with a finger of off-white head. Nose is rich juicy cherries, berry, earthy fruit skin. Taste is cherry bliss! Lots of rich juicy cherry, cranberry, sweet fruit. So incredibly easy to drink. This one is not at all artifical tasting like so many cherry beers. Probably the best non-kriek cherry beer I’ve tried yet. Finish is sweet ripe cherry pie, very tiny hints of tart as it warms. Great!

750ml bottle In a tulip. Pours hazy, deep ruby with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of cherries, sweet malts, and light oak. Flavor the same with a lot of cherries. Average texture. A really good fruit beer.

From a roughly year old bottle. Delicious to be sure, not quite as good as the Raspberry Tart, but awesome. More beery. Definite cherry flavor.

Bomber. Thanks Mike! Pours a cloudy burnt red with a decent light pink head. Aroma of tart and sweet cherries. Taste is more sweet cherries than tart cherries. Wish it was easier to find. Drought of 2012 was a problem the way I heard it.

Hell yes. As someone who grew up a big fan of Luden’s cherry "cough drops", i love this beer. Clear reddish brown color, fizzy. Cherry syrup aroma, very reminiscent of the aforementioned Luden’s. Flavor is more sumptuous, cherry chocolate cake. A little tartness. Wears out a little after a glass but, until then, it’s fantastic. I’ve never had a beer like it.

From a bottle cellered for 2 years. Wine glass, small frothy off white head that recedes to the sides of the glass. A red mahogany body that is semi-opaque and dark. The aroma is pure unadulterated cherry, clean quality without the typical fake cherry flavoring. Still a ton of carbonation, sweet cherry tastes hits the tongue, the tingling leads into a long biting finish, acidic and tart. This is was most people try to create when doing a cherry beer, or any fruit beer.
