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 ďWisconsin.Ē 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.

The perfect blend of fruit and beer. The tart Wisconsin cherry flavor is very strong. The barley malt is a great compliment to the cherry. This is one of the few fruit beers that I like, let alone rave about.

Pours dark, cloudy red. Aroma of cherry pie. Taste of cherry pie, with a little sour. There is a little oak flavor in it. Itís pretty sweet, but not disgustingly so. It is the best cherry beer Iíve ever had and will be purchasing again.

Beautiful in the glass. Great color and aroma. Strong cherry flavor - kind of like a lambic but more for the adults. Tasty.

Served: Bottled poured into a Champagne Flute Aroma: Sweet and Fruit, cherry pie filling Appearance: Solid red in color, transparent. Head is a light pink. Looks like a red Champagne. Taste: Medium to heavy on the sweetness, which isnít bad in moderation. A bit of a sour fruit taste that hits the back of the tongue. Palate: Light body with very fizzy carbonation. Great beer for special occasions. A welcome replacement for Champagne.

The beer have an intense red color with a hint of brown in it. Wow, the aroma is almost overwhelming. Its dominated by a big cherry aroma with bitter almond and caramel, red apples, cinnamon and oak lingering in the background. The taste is also dominated by cherries, cinnamon and oak. It has a nutty bitterness to it that that i find most interesting. Finally the beer has a fizzy minerality that i find a bit disturbing. Overall a great fruit beer!

I had to break this out to show a friend what beer with fruit could be. Almost overwheleming, but so good!

Understandable that this beerís won tons of awards. Starts with a slightly sour cherry taste, finishes with a lingering aftertaste with slight hints of chocolate. Bright red in color with near constant bubbling and a strong cherry aroma. Tastes great, looks great - a truly impressive beer.

I cannot really detect any malt or hop flavor, however that is not bad since this has cherry flavor so complex that it makes up for it. A sentiment I share with many of you is a wariness of fruit beers, but this is trully excellent. There is no cough syrup flavor or texture. The sweetness and tartness are in perfect harmony. Must try it.
