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.

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.

Bottle thanks to Sparky! Pours hazy reddish/brown with a thin white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of this is cherries, cherries, and cherries. Taste is cherry pie, nice balanced medium bodied dry finishing beer.

Bottle share at Borefts - thanks! Cloudy reddish brown with a good white head. Aroma is cherry, marzipan, dates. Syrupy mouthfeel, full bodied, sweet and fruity on the palate. Taste is cherries, cherry cordial, dates, sugar syrup. Sweet and delicious!

Year old bottle thanks to stevencon! Slightly cloudy deep crimson pour with a tiny head. Massive cherry aroma with a tart of tartness. Slightly sweet flavor on the front of the tongue quickly turning into huge cherries and slight tartness. Sweet tart mouthfeel with a quick dry end. Pretty damn tasty.

Super deep ruby red pour small head dissipates quickly. The beer looks like red lipstick. Huge cherry aroma fresh sugary aroma that is very natural. Tastes just like cherries with a dry wheat finish. I wish I could drink this all the time.

800th rating! Older bottle. Reddish-tan body with a small tan head. Huge cherry aroma with some pie spice, and a bit of funk. Sour but balanced flavor with lots of cherries and lingering spice. Some wood detectable but hard to pick out with so much going on. Awesome.
