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 ďWisconsin.Ē 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.

Dominating cherry. Red. Tastes like a cherry soda. Fizzy. I cant tastes wheat, hops, nor barley.

Bottle. This is almost not beer. Iíd say more of a sparkling wine with cherry pie. Still, it tastes damn good, so I canít complain all that much. The pour is bubbling and frothy, with a bright white head and pretty íKool-Aidí esque, red translucent body. Aroma is of cherry-apple juice and apple pie, with a minor acidic yeasty quality. The drinkability is outstanding and, as stated, hard to describe as beer, but still an enjoyable bubbling, juicy, and lightly tart feel. The fruity cherry pie, spiced apple cider, and pear fruit are big and juicy up front. Notes become more mellow with an added breadiness through the finish. This was a treat.

Pours a dark red with a reddish tan head. Aroma is absolutey mouth watering cherries, malt, and hints of milk chocolate. Taste is fresh cherries, sweet tart candy, milk chocolate and malt. Perfectly balanced palate. Thick, creamy, low carbonation, and a sweet candy like finish. I never thought Iíd find a better beer than New Glarusí Cherry Stout. I was wrong! This is the absolute top of the line! There is no better as far as I am concerned!

Bottle. Red pour with dark pink head. Smells of sweet fruit. Very sweet taste with a balanced finish. Good for something different.

Bottle, as pictured. I bought this somewhere in Wisconsin. Poured a clear bright red. Smelled and tasted extremely sweet, very cherry-ey. Awesome beer, just enough tartness in the taste to balance it. Doesnít taste remotely like any beer Iíve ever had, save for their Raspberry one.

Poured into my Founders snifter. A: Pours a great ruby with pinkish hues around the edges when held up to the light. A nice light pink head forms with a vigorous pour, about 1.5 finger but recedes quickly. No real lace to speak of but a nice ring follows the brew down the glass. S: Candied cherries up front with a slight tartness. Has a slight medicinal smell but in a good way. Has some hops to it that peak in around the cherrys and nice barley to smooth it out. T: Hello cherries, so nice to finally meet you! The cherries are extremely sweet and candied in nature, almost like a cherry lollipop. The taste transforms into slight bitterness at the end, but itís very mild. M: Medium bodied with a great carbonation. Coats the palate with a thinly veiled sweet cherry. A little sticky. O: I normally do not like fruit beers or sweet tasting beers, but this guy really struck a chord with me. I wouldnít be able to drink it on a regular basis, but it was nice to have after a good dinner. Iím interested to see how the raspberry tart Iíve got in the fridge compares.

Iím not sure what more I can say about Belgian Red that hasnít already been said. Fir what it is, itís perfection. Gorgeous ruby red color with some slight fizzy head. The aroma is intoxicating sour cherry and some hops. I love the way this ale tastes. The sour and sweet cherries are incredible. This one is a real treat.

750ml right after the Rasp Tart. Pours almost the same copper/red color with a nice looking head. Huge ripe cherry aroma wafts from the glass. Sugar, tart funk, and some wheat notes come to mind. Flavor is easy drinking with ripe cherry, caramel, and some funk. Nice and easy drinking. Reminds me of Cerise but 50times better

Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a reddish brown color with a slight head. The nose reminds me of sweet cherries and a freshly opened pack of toilet paper. I am guess there is a little oxidation here. The flavor is on the sweet side and lacks a balancing tartness. There is plenty of cherry flavor to go around through and more oxidized paper too. Light on the tongue and easy to drink, but it just reminds me of a wine cooler. Iím not getting what all of the buzz is about.

Bottle from Jaschais in 2011. Aroma and taste of straight up cherries. Had a distinct and potent flavor with some nice carbonation. Goes down like apple cider, real fast. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
