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.

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.

Dull, hazy, dark amber appearance with minimal, off-white head. Foam quickly dissipates leaving ragged lacing. No malt, hops or yeast aroma to speak of, only a nice cherry smell. Taste is light sweetness, slightly sour, tart, and a little salty. A well built beer, but not exactly balanced as the only flavor is cherry. A great representation of the fruit beer style, with the intended cherry dominance. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. The finish is long, and maintains the cherry flavor with a little wheat. A standout beer that met my expectations, and I would recommend to a friend.

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.

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

I was amazed by this beer. The color was a nice dark reddish color, the flavor had an amazing "REAL" cherry flavor not the syrup like candy cherry flavor. I was really stunned how good this is and I will definitely buy again.

Maybe I'm biased, but there is nothing like this beer. It is most enjoyable in the cold of a Minnesota winter and drunk from a snifter or wine goblet. The cherry content is rich and tart, but finishes a bit on the sweet side. New Glarus is not known for its hoppiness which makes the brazen cherriness of the beer so much more intense. If you can, go to this Swiss village in Wisconsin on a Saturday, take a tour of the facility, sample the wares and buy a bunch of stuff. Afterward, go to the hotel that is on the other side of the road and down about half a mile, and try some Swiss cuisine.
