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.

orangish ruby color, small pinkish white head. smells like sour cherry pie filling, pomegranate. Tastes a bit woody and like pomegranate (plus seeds), but mostly like cherry pie (with spices, crust, sugar, etc) with a nice sour finish. Quite refreshing!

Cherries. Amazing! Pours dark thick red with little head around the edges. A little lacing. I get malts and tons of cherries. Good stuff.

Bottle from Ughsmash. Tastes like a ton of cherries. They really did a good job on this one and I can’t imagine a better cherry beer. The malt is still detectable and blends well with the fruit.

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.

KYbrewgal (45) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 30, 2009
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.

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.

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