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.

This is, quite possibly, the most exquisite beer ever brewed. It's certainly the best I've ever had. EVER. It is pure liquid ambrosia. I DREAM about this beer...And the reality is better. A true fruit ale hand-crafted in small batches from premium ingredients by a family brewery. The perfect, PERFECT balance of tartness and sweetness, with a slightly nutty aftertaste and an unbelievably smooth texture and robust color. Halfway between wine and beer and far better than either, with. Whatever you have to do to get your hands on a bottle or three of this delectable beverage, DO IT. You will NOT be disappointed. Experience this beer before you die, or you leave the world poorer.

Pours a very cloudy mixture of orange, red and brown, with maybe even a slight hint of pink. The aroma smells highly of cherries (maybe even a bit of a cherry cough drop scent). Wow, the flavor starts off sweet, but ends with a bitter/tartness that I can taste predominantly in the back off my mouth. Mixed in with the sweet and tart is also a hint of spiciness.

Aroma is berries. Flavor is similar to Capri Sun. Not bad but is definitely a dessert beer.

alobar (2871) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours cherry red with aroma of tart cherries. Tart and sweet cherry flavor with some hint of oak. Just an excellent beer. Easily the best fruit beer I’ve ever had.

You can just stick an IV in my arm of this stuff and put me into a cherry coma. Anyone who rates this beer and doesn’t like it can go away. Poured at the Cajun Cafe Festival into small snifters. Brilliant deep red wityh a pink head. Aroma is a cherry bomb with jam-like notes. The taste is a cherry bomb as well. It is slightly sweet but it is so good it doesn’t matter. That’s pretty much it. Medium body, mildly sweet, slight dryness at the end. Fucking amazing.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Received this as an extra in a trade. Deep hazy red pour with a light pink head. A huge fruit explosion on the nose. Cherry fruit rollups and strawberry preserve. Sweet, bright fruits. Lovely. Taste is similar. Sweet cherry and strawberry pie filling. Light acid to keep the sweetness in check. Light body, soft carbonation. Excellent.

Excellent fruit beer. Ruby colored. Cherry and oak in the nose. Cherry dominates the taste as well, but with light tartness and sweetness. Bubbly mouthfeel. Couldn't have done a better fruit beer.

Bottle from a trade. Red colour, small head. Soft carbonation. Fruity cherry aroma with sweet hints of honey and candy. Light tartness but too sweet. Not very good.

Bottle pours murky red with low head. Aroma is rich cherries, sweet pie notes. Taste is big sweet cherries and a slick finish, intense sweet fruit beer
