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.

Bottle. [thank you, madmitch76]
Pours lightly muddy deep red with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white to pink head. Aroma has lots of marzipan, fresh cherries, red apples, light tartness, tangerine, caramel malts. Medium carbonation, fine lightly prickly carbonation. Flavour is quite sweet, cherries are fresh and quite prominent. Sweet, but not cloying. Lovley spicy note with pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Quite dry in the finish with the marzipan shining through. Quite lovely and drinkable, but a top 50 beer? Not really.

Christian (10781) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
Deep amber with a small off-white head. Strong sweet cherry aroma with marzipan, malt, caramel, and a hint of sugar. Very sweet cherry flavour with a faint tart note. Perfumed marzipan/cherry a bit cloying.

Pinball (10610) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012
cloudy dark red, smooth light brownish head. Strong aroma of cherries, sweet marcipan, flavor is cherries, sour citrussy tinge that works extremely well, like an ice cider, quite sweet in general but the citric touch makes it very good.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle sent by ericandersnavy. Thanks for this one man. Pours orange tinged ruby with a lightly pinkish head. It smells like cherries. Medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation. It is slightly sweet, slightly tart and very cherry. There’s an oaky/astringency touch. Gets bitter with time. Mouthsmackingly wonderful.

Tmoney99 (10097) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle trade from shigadeyo. Poured hazy reddish brown color an average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Heavy dark cherry fruit aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid complex dark fruity flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Standout drinkable fruit beer.

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.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süßer Antrunk nach Marmelade, sehr süß, sich sogar noch steigernd. Dadurch kommen die Krischen nicht gut zur Geltung, das Bier ist aber erfrischend und passend fruchtig. Leckeres Bier, das mit einer gewissen Säuerlichkeit besser wäre. Zum Ende dumpf, leicht holzig. 9/9/10/8/12/9

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.
