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.

really discernible cherry aroma, dark dark red appearance, drank from glass, syrupy feeling on the palette

Bottle wax sealed. Pour was a deep red. Flavor was of tart cherries and a little apple. A bit o sweet ontop of the tart to finish. Lots of carbonation. I remember the flavor of tart cherries being the very dominate flavor and its something to expect.

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.

Really nice fruit beer. Wonderful cherry aroma and flavor. Pours deep red with fading head. Attention to detail is apparent in this beer, very light hop character and great light drinking belgian wit undertones.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Very tasty fruit beer, and well executed. I know this is against everything this site represents, but making a faux-porter with this and Guinness mixed 50 / 50 is to DIE for! Chocolate-covered Cherry!

Again I must thank Clark for bringing this in. This beer pours more of an auburn in color tan a red (which you’d expect from a beer with cherries on the label) and an whitish head. The aroma is all cherry "fruit roll up" as one taster put it, and a slight tartness. The flavor is very sweet, little to no malt flavor, and then some tartness. This has some body to it but there is a little harshness in the finish. Overall for a Belgian style it is extremely drinkable, if you like sweet beers.

Smells like cherry Dimetapp...maybe Luden’s cough drops? Wow. Sweet and syrupy. Medicine-like cherry flavors. Good for what it is. Nice carbonation. Some chocolate malt base. Not really my kind of beer, but perfectly executed for what it’s supposed to be.

Have had this many times, but never rated for some reason. Pours ruby red with pinkish head. Aroma is huge amounts of cherry sweetness with flavor that is similar. Very sweet but not overwhelming. Nice tart finish. Excellent.

Although not a Flemish sour in the traditional sense, this ber is outstanding. An amazing white with pink hued head and a light red/almost fuscia color lead to a cherry explosion on the first sip. Very fine champaign like bubble lend a tingle to the exerience. The cherry flavor is reminiscent of picking up a fresh cherry cider on a side road fruit stand in Door County or Traverse City MI

Best fruit beer available! A must buy when in Wisconsin. Really wish New Glarus would sell outside of the state. Door County cherries and beer, a perfect match.
