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, thanks to Nisse666. Deep red beer with a small head. Sweet cherry aroma, a bit sourish fruity. Great cherry flavor, fresh sourish, sweetish, fruity, peppery, maybe some other spices, almond and rubber notes.

bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 75 cl bottle. Maraschino cherries aroma with mint. Sweet, sugary, almost syrupy cherry flavor. Marzipan. Sweet indeed, but somewhat vinous and liquor-like. Some lemony sourness. A bit too sweet, but actually quite nice.

Bottled: Dusty red coloured. Light beige head with a red gleam. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, berries and malt. Sweetness, fruit, some sourness and malt in the flaovur. Very good balance in the sweetness. Ends on a dry and light acidic note. Refreshing. Thanks for this gem, CaptainCougar.

Lubiere (9890) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2005
Red cherry coloured ale with a nice rose head. Wild cherry aroma, like cheesecake, with cinnamon notes. Sweet cherry pie or cherry covered cheesecake, cinnamon, lactic acid notes. Deep cherryish body, rich, smooth, with nice acidity. A wonderful cherry pie. Tasted at Institut’s gambrinale, Outaouais, Oct. 28 2005. Bought from Restant du Mondial.

750 ml bottle poured a hazy maroon with a small diminishing ruddy pink head. Aromas of pie cherries, hint of lemon and wheat. Palate was medium bodied and tart. Flavors of our pie cherries, light wheat and a bit of lemon with a dry tart lingering cherry finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Bottle obtained via trade with moejuck. Pours hazy, muddy amber and burnt orange with a small and quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Aroma is sour lemon and cherry, cherry skin, earthy yeast, straw malt, other fruit (apple, apricot, pineapple) and butter. Initially very sweet cherry syrup and then the tartness rescues you from it taking your mouth to the other extreme and waking all saliva glands at once with a puckering lemon zing. Sweet malt and trace yeast, cherry skins and buttered bread. Medium bodied and dry palate. Not a Top 50 in my ever so humble opinion.

red-brown colour, complex aroma (cherry, cinnamon and almond), acidity, sparkling, full-bodied, sour with slightly too much carbonation, long aftertaste (chocolate and cherry)

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Ok, I enjoyed another bottle tonight with the wife. We both agree that the aroma is of cherries, butter and brown sugar... quite simply, homemade cherry pie. The flavor is of cherry pie as well; slightly salty crust and all. I had to increase my score. This is just excellent beer. To drink it is like eating homemade cherry pie without the messy cleanup. Best fruit beer I’ve ever tried.
