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 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.

My favourite of the NG fruit beers. Very sweet, low carbonation, slightly sour cherries and some soft wheat malt - absolutely delicious.

Patrickctenchi (5002) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle: Pours cloudy, dark red-brown with a thick, dark, pinkish-beige head. Powerful cherry and cream aroma. Flavour is slightly tart, cherry malt, real, fresh cherry/juice.....spicy.... Massive cherry presence.....so much so that the dryness of the acids made me thirsty....AS I was drinking it.....Iím not normally a big fan of cherries, but this one is so spectacular in itís presentation and colossal flavor, I canít help but get on board and Love IT !!! Simply amazing.....

This is easily my favorite of the fruit beers from New Glarus. Pours a beautiful red color. Aroma of fresh door county cherries. Nice slick, but not that sticky, mouthfeel. Sweet semi tart cherry flavor. Cherry dominates the taste for this one. Itís sort of like drinking a thick fresh cherry juice. So darn delicious.

1pt 9fl oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Dark red with a pink-tinted off-white head. Pours like a thick rosé. Aroma is thick cherries, slightly sour. Flavor is much the same, sourness revealing itself in the long lasting finish. Palate is quite thick with a fair amount of effervescence. Very nice dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma is cherry, overpowered by Belgian yeast. Appearance is red, off white head. Taste is cherry, oh my god. Best cherry beer Iíve tasted. Mouthfeel is refreshing, crisp and wonderful. Overall, it misses on aroma alone. Itís fucking amazing. The only beer I had twice at GToM.

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Enuratique. Pours hazy ruby with an off-white head. Aroma is cherries and marzipan. Flavour is medium sweet and light tartness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. Finish is fresh, cherries and just delicious.

750-ml bottle imported by a friend from the brewery. surprised the label didnít give the abv. label called it a marriage of wine and beer, i thought it was halfway between beer and fruit (cherry) juice. gorgeous clear ruby color, red even through the green bottle. medium body, creamy. at most lightly tart. should have high oxygen radical absorption capacity.
