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.

Pours a cloudy red dark reddish brown. A bit of a cider like appearance. Aroma says "drink me". It is of ripened cherries freshly crushed. Taste is of sweetened maraschinos cherries. This is a beer that gives you exactly what you expect when you first pop the cork. A bit of oak tannins add to the complexity. This beer is very unique and deserves a high rating, however, it is a bit too sweet for my tastes. I can see how that would play well with a mass audience.

Wow, i am impressed. this beer is wonderful. possibly the best fruit beer i have ever tasted. You can taste apple pie all over your palate. the cherries, the crust, the cinnimon, slight bits of vanilla,and carmel. Just amazing! Perfectly balanced; sweet and tart.

I have to give this a perfect score. Gorgeous deep amber color. Smells of fresh baked cherry pie, flowers, and a hint of vinegar. Very sweet, but with a nice balancing sourness. No evident hop flavor. Tastes of cherries, vinegar, bit of malt. Just an exceptional beer, easily the best fruit beer I’ve ever had. Hunt this one down!

Bottle, thanx to Nisse666. Pours hazy reddish with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma with lots of cherry, bitter almond. Taste of cherry, sweet/sour, very fruity. Nice flavours, but a bit to sweet imo.

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.

a deep red color with a crisp, snowy white head. it does not look nor smell like beer, cherry dominates in every facet but is surprisingly delicious. a really well crafted beer.

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!
