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 “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.

Ungstrup (34272) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2004
An unclear red beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma contains notes of marcipan and cherries. While the flavor contains notes powerful notes of fruit and cherries.

oh6gdx (25258) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Bottled (thanks heemer77). Hazy reddish orange colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is lots of cherrykernels. Flavour is very nice of cherrykernels as well as some quite sour notes. Yet at the same time very wellbalanced and refreshing thing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, reddish with an off-white head. Distinct aroma of sweet cherries and marzipan. Medium body with rich, sweet cherries - thick and almost like cherry sauce. Extremely fruity but definitely needs something to balance the extreme sweetness. Not a bad fruit beer at all, but I simply don’t understand the high ratings on this one. So many much better New Glarus beers around. 100507

anders37 (22720) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish color with a small fast disappearing off-white head. Has a fruity and a little tart cherry aroma with almondy nutty hints. Smooth deep and slightly tart cherry flavor with lots of the flavor comming from the cherry pits, giving it a nice nutty flavor. Has a slightly sweetish malty cherry finish. with a long aftertaste of cherrry pits. A very nice one.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2010 Bottle courtesy of, and shared with, sebletitje, a.k.a. Sebastien, a.k.a. SeaBass - merci, mon ami! Purple, thin white head, great lacing. Aroma is pure cherry heaven, fresh and juicy. Taste has slight tartness, only mild sweetness, and massive fruit. Outstanding brew.
