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.

I can't help it, I love this beer. A friend of mine brought home a three gallon keg of this beautiful beer! I was like drinking liquid cherry pie. Why oh why do they limit distribution to WI when they're are so many of us who want to enjoy this beer! WI must grow the best cherries. The oakiness comes through with every sip. Beautiful reddish-brown head and lace in the glass which stays from start to finish. This is a beer definitely worth persuing, especially since rumor has it that Kasteel is no longer going to be making their red any more. Truly an amazing beer.

The moderately thick, lustrous pour of this beer is a good indication of what you’re in for. Deep red in appearance with a moderately tight head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is much like the flavor; tight, crisp, and tart cherries with overtones of oak from it’s oak barrel conditioning. It is certainly a dessert beverage, very rich.

Poured from a Bomber bottle into a tulip glass. The body of this beer is red with light red or pink along the outside of the glass. It leaves behind great lacing. It smells of fresh tart cherris. The taste of this beer is of tart cherries with a seetness through the whole taste. Not overly sweet so you are easily able to finish off the bottle. Overall this beer is delicious. If you are a fan of cherries you cant deny that this beer is king.

Bottle was a gift. Pours a deep red with a full white head. Wow, what cherry aroma and a flavor to match. Tart Montmorency cherries dominate; it doesn’t even taste like a beer. Awesome.

This is a great beer. Cherries everywhere. Maybe not quite to traditional style as it could be, but it is a awesome beer.

Pour was deep red, not quite opaque. Small amount of sediment. Small pink head. Flavor is sweet cherry, but not overbearing. Massive cherry aroma. Lots of carbonation. Smooth, no heavy aftertaste. Oak flavor noticeable. Becomes more tart/sour as you drink it. Love it! Good stuff.

I am not a usual fruit beer drinker, but this stuff is realllllllly good. Cherry flavor is tart, like cherry pie, not too sweet like cough syrup would taste. Not bitter, great aroma and color. Good head, not much lacing. Excellent finish. Give one to your wife to hold, and drink it when no-ones looking.

I’m glad I’m lucky enough to live in Wisconsin where this amazing fruit beer flows like water and can be had even at gas stations! Belgian Red pours a murky bright red and the cherry aroma hits you like a truck fresh from the orchard. Awesome. This is thick, like an imperial stout almost, but the taste is straight sour cherries with some malt thrown in for good measure. Tastes like a cherry pie. It only gets better as it warms. Aftertaste is the same as the first swallow, pure cherry pie. Best consumed in small doses, however, this is some rich beer that might lead to gut-rot if you’re not careful. The only thing I sort of dislike about it is the often overly fizzy carbonation, but I can get over it pretty quickly. New Glarus rocks!

Bottle generously provided from MaxxDaddy - What a treat!! Finnally got around to cap this baby in good coompany and everything - including the company - suddenly got much better. Not much to look at being murky brown redish with no head, but the flavour of cherries got my attention and the fantastic flavour of aromatic cherries, the sweet malt and perfect tartness to balance the palate made Kris a happy boy! I want more....
