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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Strong sweet cherry aroma. Pours a dark cherry red. Taste is very sweet and a bitter tart after taste. A small hint of malt. For its kind it is a fantastic beer but the sweet strength is a little overpowering for me. Still worth a taste especially if you favor fruity beers.

What a great beer to drink as my first official RB beer. It pours a cloudy ruby red with a small off white head. The heavenly aroma of sweet-tart cherries and a touch of vanilla draw me into the glass. The flavor is very well balanced. Mildly sweet with just the right amount of tartness and a smooth finish. No artificial cherry taste here. Overall a fantastic beer.

So good cherry aroma, Very raisin malts and slight roasted malts that adds so much to the multi dimensional. Great OAK. Slight wine and very tart. ANOTHER MUST!!!

This is a fruity beer so it has a nice aroma and appearance. I do enjoy this but my stomach wouldn’t have it when I drank it. The carbonation with the fruit had a strange impact on me, but it had a great taste, and I will try it again.

Bottle picked up in New Glarus during Labor Day. Pours hazy amber-red with a thin slightly pinkish off white head. Significant cherry aroma with a hint of sherry. Intense taste of cherries and good carbonation but goes down smooth. Tart finish that intensifies if the beer warms up a bit. Lambic-like characteristics makes the Begian Red a good drinking beer on a warm day unless you are unfortunate enough to hate cherries.

this stuff is great. a bit on the thick side with just the right amount of carbonation. the flavor of sour cherry is prominent, but not overpowering at all. lives up to the hype. highly recommended
