COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally 5.1% - abv reduced to 4% sometime between 2009 and 2011.
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 ďWisconsin.Ē 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.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Very tasty. Tart and sweet simultaneously. Maybe even a little vinous. Only complaint is that it's a little tough to get through a big portion as the sweet/tart thing wears on your palate. Fantastic in reasonable doses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

75cl, no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with cherries, thx alot to Eric for bringing this over!, complex fruit brew, sweet/sour/fruity and slightly woody/vinous/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew

Bottle: Dark ruby, blushing cherry color with an off-white chunky foam that seems to either have a slight tint of lavender to it, or the red beer below is playing tricks on me. Straight up cherry aroma. Lightly tart, mostly sweet, almost like a cherry pie filling that needs just another half cup of sugar. Small underscore of brown sugar & grain. Flavor is the same way, just a huge orgy of cherries hammer fucking every single nook & cranny in your oral orifice. Lightly tart & acidic up front & in the finish with a long, drawn out sweetness that bridges the gap in between. The somewhat abrupt, zesty finish ensures that the sweetness of the beer doesnít wear you down too quickly. While I prefer Raspberry Tart (only because I enjoy raspberries more than cherries, really), this is a beyond solid staple in New Glarusís huge portfolio of awesome fruit beers.

Pours a dark ruby-red with a finger of off-white foam. Moderate lacing. Nose is a blast of tart cherries, some caramel notes, and a hint of muskiness. Taste is tart up front with an underlying sweetness thatís pleasantly balanced. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Tasty brew.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby red when pinkish head. Aroma is strong cherry nose. Taste is a nice mix of subtle sweetness and medium tartness. Nice long subtle tart finish. Great fresh cherry flavor. Definitely the best cherry beer I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vestergaard (1392) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle thanks to Klimaet! Pours a hazy, deep red. Big pink head. Aroma has tons of cherry, lots of earthy yeast, acid, slight vinegar, slight sulfur. Lemon, red apples. Taste is super fruity, acidic, citric, sweet, juicy, lots of cherry, candy. Nice and drinkable. Average carb and an oily, juicy body. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Bill Young. Pours hazy muddy red with a small offwhite head. Aromas of sweet candy cherries, tart candy sours, marzipan, vinegary tartness. Taste about the same. Sour cherries, candy, malty, tart cherry pits.

What an interesting and difficult to describe beer. A beautiful ruby colored beer with decent head. The aroma is CHERRIES! Whoa i knew it was a fruit beer but i didnít expect this. The flavor is intensely cherry but just when it starts to become too much a blast of sour cuts in and adds a depth of complexity to the beer. Donít think i could drink this everyday but it would be nice every now and again. I would like to age a bottle for awhile. I think i will....

Jewel red out of the bottle with a redish/orangish foam head. The nose is all cherries and reminded me of the filling to a Hostess cherry fruit pie. Very bubbly on the tongue. My little sister thinks it tastes like a wine cooler and my Dad says it tastes like crap. I think it tastes like cherries. Very tastey real cherries and not the fakey artificial flavors in most beers. It does taste like a cherry pop. I like this well enough, but I donít get why it is so highly rated.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 Thanksgiving 2005.
Hazy ruby red grapefruit color with a fluffy, non-stick lacing. Aromatics accentuate the fruity nature, drawing out red currant, cherry 7-up, cherry cheesecake, red grapes and mild juniper berries. Sprits of cherry cordials is the first non-"given" flavor to register. Sweetness prevails, curtailing with a mild fruit sourness. Ruby red grapefruit compliments the heap of cherries in the sweetening aspects, not as a souring agent. Encompasing and ripe on the palate, finishing like cherry cheesecake and natural cherry sauce drizzled all over.

Thanksgiving 2004.
Very interesting. Tart. You can tell the real cherries that go into this are carefully selected. Nice hops, wheat senstation too. Itís hard to describe what this beer is like. I brought it to Thanksgiving dinner and it went really well with the turkey.
