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.

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. (thx to papsoe) Red, almost clear brew with a slightly artificial-feeling cherry nose, followed by almond and sugar. Marzipan, cherry and sugar in the flavor. Full, sticky mouthfeel. Astringent, citric finish with cherry. Too sweet, almondy and artificial-feeling. Unbalanced on the sweet side. Ok, so it’s a nice beer, but I can’t understand why it has so high ratings. (070510)

harrisoni (14462) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle at MesandSim’s tasting Aug 09. Thanks to HogTownHarry and Mes for this and to Ruth for allowing us to open this. Clear deep red, lasting beige head. Aroma of red fruits and toast. Some raspberry jam. Cherry and raspberries, slightly sweet like cherry juice. Some good cutting acidity on finish. It is very good. Very cherry-ish. Bit of toffee sweetness. Like cherry toffees. Good? Better than some krieks from Belgium? Not quite. Different and good though. Glace cherry flavours.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2010 Bottle courtesy of, and shared with, sebletitje, a.k.a. Sebastien, a.k.a. SeaBass - merci, mon ami! Purple, thin white head, great lacing. Aroma is pure cherry heaven, fresh and juicy. Taste has slight tartness, only mild sweetness, and massive fruit. Outstanding brew.

Dedollewaitor (14259) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle @ Blindtasting, Odense, July 2011. Pours unclear red with a small creamy head. Sweet nose of fresh cherries and a bit of almond , vanilla and marzipan. Sweet - not sickening but still a bit too much and one-sided.

Bottle at GABF 2008. Dark red/brown - pink head. Marzipan, sweetness, berries, bitterness, tar, high sweetness, light nutty, wheaty. Not smooth and balanced enough....

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2004
Bottle. Dark red/brown colour. Aroma of cherries/cherry sauce. Quite sweet, slightly acidic. Acidity burns at the back of my throat.

TBone (13359) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2007
Hazy murky red color, small off-white head. Intensive fresh cherry aroma. Lactose and sweet cherry in the flavor. Sweet, sugary, good be more sour. Some peppery notes in the aftertaste. I was expecting more and therefore I am wondering how this is in Top50.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2001
Complex and flavourful, a well-balanced fruit beer with an explosive fruit character. I guess if anything it could use a touch more dark malt.

Leighton (13004) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle, 2000 Vintage, at the 2010 Funky 6. Incredible. Pours cloudy red with a medium, off-white head. Big aroma of sweet cherries, with hints of sourness. Flavor is very sweet, lots of ripened cherries, juiciness, some acidity. Medium bodied with soft, massaging carbonation. Lightly tart on the finish with long, lingering cherry impressions and fruit sugars. Wonderful.

A: Wisconsin Belgian Red pours a cloudy, cherry red color with some hints of brown. A layer of pink foam sits atop the beer. S: The first thing I thought of when smelling this beer was cherry pie. A slight tartness is present as well, but diminishes as the beer warms. T: The flavor profile is very similar to the nose. An absolutely amazing cherry pie taste. The tartness is a bit more noticeable than in the nose. But once again, the sweetness comes through more and more as the beer warms up. M: A fairly high level of carbonation gives a feeling of a dryer finish than this beer really has. D: A really great and tasty beer. I don’t think I could drink the whole 750ml though, as it is very sweet.
