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.

Hazy copper, thin beige head. Nose is all cherry. Fuller feel than Strawberry rhubarb and serendipity. Cherries in a glass. Best of the three so far. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iím glad Iím lucky enough to live in Wisconsin where this amazing fruit beer flows like water and can be had even at gas stations! Belgian Red pours a murky bright red and the cherry aroma hits you like a truck fresh from the orchard. Awesome. This is thick, like an imperial stout almost, but the taste is straight sour cherries with some malt thrown in for good measure. Tastes like a cherry pie. It only gets better as it warms. Aftertaste is the same as the first swallow, pure cherry pie. Best consumed in small doses, however, this is some rich beer that might lead to gut-rot if youíre not careful. The only thing I sort of dislike about it is the often overly fizzy carbonation, but I can get over it pretty quickly. New Glarus rocks!

I am not a usual fruit beer drinker, but this stuff is realllllllly good. Cherry flavor is tart, like cherry pie, not too sweet like cough syrup would taste. Not bitter, great aroma and color. Good head, not much lacing. Excellent finish. Give one to your wife to hold, and drink it when no-ones looking.

Bottle generously provided from MaxxDaddy - What a treat!! Finnally got around to cap this baby in good coompany and everything - including the company - suddenly got much better. Not much to look at being murky brown redish with no head, but the flavour of cherries got my attention and the fantastic flavour of aromatic cherries, the sweet malt and perfect tartness to balance the palate made Kris a happy boy! I want more....

This beer completely blows me away every time I try it. It doesnít score near perfect in my books based on depth of complexity necessarily, but more so for the sheer pleasure I get from every sip. I actually canít get enough of this beer. When poured out, it possesses a deep, vibrant ruby color that makes you smell cherries before you even put your nose to the glass. A rocky, billowing head sits atop this beer like a crown and follows it fully the whole way to the bottom. On the nose, the beer gushes forth with wave after wave of deep, juicy cherry. The fruit and the malts together give the cherries a sort of warm, bready character in the nose and remind me of someone leaving a freshly baked cherry pie out to cool on the windowsill. On the palate, the beer is fresh and creamy, with a winelike finesse to it thatís almost like a vinaigrette. The cherries come in again in a gooey, warm, malty way thatís not too rich or too cloying. The winelike, slightly sour quality really makes itself known and works perfectly with the dark cherry character. A perfect, lively carbonation just makes this ultimate beer harmony. Overall, this is one of the classiest beers I have ever had. I always wish it were easier to find so I could drink it all the time.

Pours muddy brown in color with hints of red and orange. Very murky and opaque. Mmm, smells like a freshly baked cherry pie. Damn, I can almost smell the crust too. Sweet cherry jam and lemon/green apple tartness aromas in there too. Taste is like a sweet cherry-apple cider with a tart finish. Effervescent-tingling on the tongue, carbonated like a sparkling wine. High points for uniqueness and although I couldnít drink many of these back to back for the fruitiness, this beer is quite the experience and and an incredible fruit beer.

Thankyou SuIIY. Enjoyed with JoshuaB as well. And donít listen to him, heís just a hater. Everything he rates he downrates just because he hates fruit and hype. Everyone feel free to call him a hater. This beer is perfection in a bottle.

750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy ruby red with a medium, pinkish head. Head disappears quickly, but has some slight lacing. Aroma is of sour cherries. The taste matches the aroma; slightly tart cherries at the beginning, but the finish becomes bready and spicy. The beer had a medium body with a lot of carbonation. Outstanding beer overall.

Shared a bottle with a friend in MN. The beer is very much as advertised: a celebration of cherries. It pours a golden-pink with fizzy head. Aroma is cherry pie filling. Many fruit beers end up tasting medicinal if not balanced correctly. This one stayed very true to the cherry flavor, with a nice tart finish. Itís a fun departure from more standard beer. Well done!
