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.

Easy enough to make a sweet fruit beer enjoyable, and this certainly was enjoyable. Nose of sweet cherries and tart fruit; people with me kept saying cranberry juice. Lovely hazy reddish color with a small head. Taste of sweet cherries, lightly malted, could use more offsetting bitterness, and a sourness that might also have come from the cherries or some lambic activity. Average mouth feel, not cloying or syrupy as I had feared. Maybe a bonus point for being low alcohol. Easy to get a high rating with a sweet fruity beer, but this one was nice.

pepsican (1447) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2008
Red pour with a thin pink head. Strong cherry aroma. Flavor is sweet cherry, caramel, apple, and some wood. Some butter. Finishes very sweet, medium carbonation. Great for a 4oz after dinner pour, but it gets to be too much if you even split a bottle with another person.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Enjoyed on New Years Eve ’08. Pour is a funky red with an aroma full of cherry and rhubarb. Very sweet. Flavor is much the same. This is very fizzy with a soda pop feel. Nice, though. This is one I had heard so much about that the hype was bigger than the beer.

Bottle. Aroma of sweet cherries (but naturally sweet cherries, not artificially sugary or anything). Flavor adds in some sour cherry notes, but is still predominantly sweet, and certainly all about the cherry. Though tasty, this one didn’t give me near the cherrigasm that Raspberry Tart did for its namesake fruit, and was more a pleasant drink than particularly memorable.

After all these years, not at all what I was expecting. An alluring red-orange with a minimal head. Ethereal cherry bomb aroma, followed by a nice cherry flavor, that is relatively well-balanced. High amounts of unfermentables, with a soft sweetness that does not become too much. An excellent dessert libation, but not remotely beery.

A- Pours a translucent reddish brown with a 1.5 finger frothy head after a vigorous pour that dissipates quickly. S- Smells is candy sweet, cherries, rich malty backbone. T- Taste is earthy, hints of cherry, a tad sour, maybe hints of toffee. M- Fairly thick and maybe a bit too carbonated for my taste. D- Well crafted but I can barely drink 1 glass. Way too fruit forward for me. I like fruit beers a little more subtle than this.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2009
Bouteille verte de 750 ml, rapportée du Wisconsin par Dany. Arômes très intenses de cerises sûres. Robe rouge et claire, légère mousse rosée. En bouche, les cerises sûres sont omniprésentes et naturelles. Heureusement la bière demeure relativement peu sucrée et possède un corps souple. Finale sûre et légèrement acide. Intéressant, mais les cerises dominent et écrasent totalement les autres saveurs.

&50 2008 vintage (1 year old). Great fruitty cherry profile on the nose. A bit of a muddy red pour (even when yeast was settled). Sweet with just a slight bit of tartness -- a bit bitter due to the hops. A bit out of balanced with the bittersweatness. The hops are n attempt to rebound the sweetness. Just a bit too sweet. MEdium body with perfect carbonation. Overall: too sweet to take down a whole 750, glad I shared this one. I can;t imagine drinking more than 6 ounces of this as a dessert beer. If you want to know a summary of this beer: your kid couldn’t tell the difference between this and his/her juice box.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Pours amber with an off-white head. Notes of cherry, sweet tarts, sour & sweet, lightly acidic candy. Full bodied, sweet and sticky with lush carbonation.
