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.

Amazing fresh fruityness is lively and tart with a delicate sweetness and a velvety mouthfeel. One of the best fruit beers out there.

thanks to crossovert for the hookup Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a hazy reddish color with an off white head that has just a hint of pink. The head recedes quickly leaving behind no hint of lacing whatsoever. The nose is all cherries all day long. Really just a breathtaking sour cherry aroma. What an amazing aroma; I could almost forget about drinking this beer and just sit a enjoy the aroma all evening. Outstanding. No malts, no hops, just cherries... The flavor is big, just as big as the aroma. A big full flavored glass of cherries. Slightly tart, while still remaining sweet and enjoyable. Well carbonated, making the beer almost prickly on the tongue. Medium bodied, and easy to drink. The website boasts "Over a pound of Door County cherries in every bottle", and I believe it. Just a terrific beer. Really teh best example of a fruit beer that I have ever tasted. Serving type: bottle

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 .........Perfect. Better than ANY lambic I’ve ever tasted. Gem like color strong boquet and a HUGE taste. A beer that makes you feel lucky you live in Wisconsin.

Holy fucking cherries! Wow, tart, sour, and yummy. Good stuff here. If beer was a candy this would be it. No head, lively carbonation brings a refreshing taste. Bottle says a marriage of beer and wine. Yes, I agree. Great beer.

Courtesy of pfoxyjohn - the New Glarus man! Pours a deep reddish hazy color with a thin head but lots of lacing. Some carbonation. Aroma is of sweet, tart cherries and berries and some malts. Taste is overwhelmingly cherries, but I love cherries, so this is fantastic. Another winner from New Glarus. Thoroughly enjoyable. My favorite beer - period.

fruity cherry and oak aroma, red, minimal head, white foam, clear, sparkling, light sweetness, medium dryness, tastes of dry cherry with underlying smoky oak and aged hops flavors. Hard to conceive of a better fruit based beer.

I am not a cherry fan, but this beer is fantasic. Poured a deep red color with a thick head that dicapted slowly. Aroma of Cherries and other fruit undertones. Very tasty little snack.

having heard so many good things about this brew, i was eager to try it, and did with two of my belgian friends, and the three of us reached the same conclusion- yuck. sickly-sweet and revolting cherry candy flavor overwhelms this very undrinkable "belgian" beer. gloriously glowing red in color, sweet nose, but so stomach-turning sweet neither of us could stand it until we cut it with equal amounts of an american lager; no kidding! not proud, but hell, it improved it greatly. those of you who rave about this cherry candy crap need to try a real belgian kriek: we switched to a drie fontienen kriek and never looked back!
