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.

Effervescent red brown sparkler, smells of beautiful tart cherries, intensely fruity; tastes more like a cherry pie than a malt beverage, but delicious nonetheless. The extremely high carbonation acts to balance the sweetness.

nice fruity beer. The ladies really love this one. It has a lot of fruit going on and some may admit too much. its cherries for damn real. Couldn’t drink more than a few pints of this.

Pours a ruby red with a slightly orange head. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is sweet, almost medicinal cherry, combined against undertones malt. Dry, very slightly tart finish. Not really my style, but a great fruit beer

Ruby red in color. First instinct was definately cherries. Reminds me of moms homeade cherry pie. Taste was very tart. Tastes like it smells...Cherries! Very good though. Makes your mouth dry and then really watery.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Pours an amber red, beautifully clear in color. Almost no head. Aroma is similar to the perfect cherry pie, whipped cream, crispy crust and all. Slightly musky, but incredibly sweet. Taste blossoms in your mouth like the sweetest of desserts, tart and perfect. I could drink this for days. Thanks skaughty!

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle poured to champagne flutes. Very heavy aroma of cherries just from popping crown cap. Light flower, perfume aroma also. Very small, creamy head with good lacing. The brew is murky red with a brown mixed in. Much darker than expected. Very sweet initial flavor a ever so slight hop bitter. Medium bodied with creamy, wet texture. Lively carbonation on the sides of the tounge. Very strong cherry finish. This brew just screams CHERRY the entire bottle through. Wonderful drink.

steeleliver (121) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Utterly delicious and perfect example of its style. Perfect blending of the cherry with the beer, far superior than the cherry stout by new glarus. Lighter red orange coloring with short head.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with almost no head. A little bit fizzy, but not like pop or champagne. Definite aroma of cherries. Great cherry flavor and mouth feel. Overall a great brew, would recommend to anyone, even if they’re not a "beer person". Good for beer-sissy’s and girlfriends.
