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.

cloudy peachy-red and smells like mulled cherry cider. Just a touch of tartness with a nice little spritz of carbonation and flavors of baked cherry pie filling (but in a good way), cinnamon, oak and vanilla. The alcohol is subtle but there in the aftertaste. Great for dessert.

It doesn’t taste much like beer in the traditional sense. It’s more like the best strongly cherry flavored soda water. It’s a very tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wham! How did they get so much cherry flavor into this?! I half-expected to find some pits at the bottom of this 750 bottle. Sweet and tasty.

Bottle into snifter. Aroma is amazing; like a cherry tree punching you in the face. Taste is similar with almost a strange ludens cough drops taste. Overall a great beer and second best to only the raspberry tart.

Pours dark red, good head retention, very nice lacing, is syrupy, but not overly so. Sweet, cherry smell, faint menthol. Taste is cherry candy, cream soda, fresh.

Very good aroma, heavy with cherries. Golden-red color with a pinkish-red head. Taste isn’t as dominated with cherries as I would have thought. Very wheaty and carbonated. A very good Cherry Ale.

Very interesting...nice rich red color with a thick off-white head that diminishes somewhat quickly leaving a considerable amount of lace. Good fruity aroma with a slight hint of something metallic. The flavor is a well balanced tart with good bit of "cherry-ness." Not for everyday consumption, but certainly a great special occasion brew.

Fantastic Brew! I bought it at the New Glarus Brewery in Wisconsin and hauled it home.(1,500 miles)So maybe my score is a little high, but as they say "getting there is half the fun". It pours a beautiful cherry red and it had a perfect balence of sour and fruit. If I ever have the chance I will buy it again
