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.

Scopey (7618) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Keg at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours hazy deep red, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sweet cherry, artificial notes, cherry tunes (the sweet), marzipan and almond. The taste is sweet cherry, residual syrupy sweetness, hint of tangy lime, cherry tunes and gummy bears, with a dry finish. Medium body, average carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. I was hoping for a bit more tartness. Far too sweet. Tastes a lot like a commercial Belgian kriek.

mcberko (7438) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
750mL bottle, pours a beautiful ruby red with a small beige head. Aroma of rich sweet and sour cherries, quite sweet and real (nothing artificial here), and some tartness. Flavour of rich cherries, more tart than Raspberry Tart but still not much in the way of sourness / tartness, more intense carbonation as well but not detracting in the flavour. Not complex, but the intense cherry flavours are wonderful. I prefer Raspberry Tart but this is excellent as well.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Cloudy, vibrant red colour. Very distinctive marzipan aroma. It took me while to decide whether I liked that (as I can’t stand marzipan). In the end I decided that I did - just. Fizzy cherryade character with some sour edges. Definite sweet tinges. Good mouthfeel. Quite nice. Bottled at the London Joet gathering.

DrSilverworm (7210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Sample from a bottle at Natifest. Little off-white head. Good lace. Awesome, unique cherry belgian nose, very nice fruity sweet aroma. Light crisp carbonation, dry texture. Good tart taste. Awesome

Ughsmash (7202) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Poured a deep ruby red with about 1 finger head that dissipated after about a minute. The Door County cherries really shine through on the nose. Beer is well-carbonated and almost champagne-like in the mouthfeel. Cherries and some subtle oak comprise most of the flavor. Aftertaste has more of those wonderful wonderful cherries.

deyholla (7154) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured with an amber hue and a thick white head. Aroma was full of cherries, particularly tart, with a bit of alcohol like aroma. The aroma reminded me of cough syrup. Flavor began with sweet cherries but grew in tartness through out.

Ibrew2or3 (7146) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Thanks to boboski for opening this brew. Pours a clear blood red with white head. Smells like sugar soaked sweet cherries simmering over the stove. Wow! Awesome aroma. Freshly picked perfectly ripe cherries. The flavor starts with hints of tartness and sour yeast that quickly get consumed by sweet and tart ripe cherries fresh from the cherry tree. It gets sweeter and sweeter and richer and richer before some sourness comes back into play. Great tasting brew. Wow! Thanks Jason.

DuffMan (7138) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle, RBAG 2014 prelim. Light scarlet red, pink head. Aroma is pure kirsch, spicy nuances. Lush juicy cherry flavour, not too sweet, very intense, dry finish.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Huge tart cherry aroma stemming from the dark red body. Pours with a short-lived white fizzy head. Sweet and sour together dominate the oily, somewhat fizzy palate. Hints of oak in the finish. very little hop character, but that makes it true to its style. Overall smooth, malty, and blossoming with cherries.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
Harry gave me this bottle a couple of years ago. I’ve been struggling not to drink it ever since. I’m so glad I waited. This is utterly superb. The aroma has probably a little more raspberry than cherry but my god it’s glorious. Faint vanilla and angel cake too. Flavour, shit the bed, this is truly outstanding. It really does not drink like a beer. So much sweet, freshly picked glacé cherries and so much adorable marzipan. Effortlessly drinkable. Very sweet but with a delicate but oh so refined sour / tart finish. I’ve had this before and found it a little over the top sweet but with some age on it, it’s truly world class. So much finesse and poise. So much lip smacking flavour. This really is top drawer. I have half a glass left. Sod the notes, you know I’m loving this one. I’m off to spend some (all too brief) special time with what I have left. Isn’t that the story of our life fellas?
