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.

Amazingly unique beer. Small, reddish white head. Cherry and malt aroma. Appearance is cloudy, dark burgundy. Taste is predominantly cherry with hints of malt and hops. Slightly fizzy. A definite favorite.

Bottle thanks to bgramer. Thanks! Pours dark ruby amber with a big pinkish white head that fades and leaves some lacing. Smell is huge candied cherries and a slight earthy tartness. Taste is similar with a musty candied cherry flavor and a slight tartness. Really delicious fruit beer. Smooth on the palate and easy drinking.

750ml bottle. This one pours a deep red color. Quite a bit of carbonation in this one. Taste is of cherries all around. This one reminded me of a champagne in a way with the amount of carbonation present. Pretty good stuff.

Again thanks to my brother Chris. And like the Raspberry Tart well worth the wait. Dominant cherry aroma. Excellent sour cherry flavor that was the perfect balance of fruitiness and sourness. You could drink this forever. A must try!

GABF 2006. Light amber with slight haze. Thin white head. Aroma is huge cherries, hints of sweet and sour. Flavor is a great balance of sweet and sour. Cherries dominate. Great blend of flavors.

One dimensional but simply delicious. Sweet and lip-smacking good. Heavy cherry aromas set the tone for a great experience. Wish we could get this California outside of Festivals.

noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 I pt. 9 oz. bottle (2009) in a flute; pours an unclear red bordering on brown, becoming a fiery amber in the light w/ an ephemeral off-white/light pink head; aroma is mostly dominated by sweet cherries and strong marzipan w/ an undertone of bubblegum; flavor is again dominated by the cherries and marzipan, more so by the cherries, which bring in a nice sourness as well; medium-bodied, finishing slightly tart. Tasty beer, but I’ve always maintained that its a tad too sweet. One of the better fruit beers out there nonetheless.

Superb seasonal from New Glarus. Pours a cloudy ruby, with a fizzy white head. Fruity aroma. Taste is sweet berries, and a tartness on the back of the throat. Has a bit of spice as well. Light on the palate, very fizzy with a dry finish. Overall, a very enjoyable and drinkable brew from perhaps the most consistent brewer in the midwest. Excellent

Deep, deep red with a nice pinkish and persistenct head. Intitial sourness takes you by surprise every time you drink it. Sourness sort of converts into a nice metallic (for lack of a better word)tone. Really unique stuff that is a good special occasion pop.

This pours out a cloudy red that looks just wonderful. The smell is slightly tart, reminds me of cherry cobbler. The taste is a great sour cherry flavor that sadly leaves the more you drink. The palate was smooth, not heavily carbonated. Overall it was great, I have had 7 or 8 bottles now.
