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.

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 didn’t 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. Don’t 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 don’t get why it is so highly rated.

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.

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

Again I must thank Clark for bringing this in. This beer pours more of an auburn in color tan a red (which you’d expect from a beer with cherries on the label) and an whitish head. The aroma is all cherry "fruit roll up" as one taster put it, and a slight tartness. The flavor is very sweet, little to no malt flavor, and then some tartness. This has some body to it but there is a little harshness in the finish. Overall for a Belgian style it is extremely drinkable, if you like sweet beers.

Thanks to Footbalm for this brew. Pour is a reddish brownish, not quite the most appealling looking beer I’ve seen over the years. Then comes the cherry dominated aroma, followed by the cherry dominated taste. Its a good beer, very sweet with a nice sour kick.

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.

Thanks to DavidP for this bottle. Split this into two glasses a tulip and a flute. Color is very appealing - a bloody ruby red with carbonation visible in the light, The light does a great job illuminating the entire beer but looks murky when away from the light. Aroma is strong - all cherry - sour-sweet, earthy and slightly toasty. Taste is all cherry as well but TOO cherry for me. While I enjoy this in the aroma, the flavor is not "beer" enough. Taste just like my grandma’s cherry kompot. Very sweet, medium body, no bitterness. My girlfriend really likes the stuff so I pretty much got it for her.

Bottle. Poured a super fizzy ruddy color with a swiftly dissipating head. An oily vinous lacing. Super potent sweet cherry aroma that I enjoyed for what is was. Immensely tart cherry flavor dominates and as it warms it becomes more rich and develops some hints of chocolate on top of the cherry. Very smooth and immensefly crisp. I enjoyed it but though it was very one dimensional.

750. Pours cloudy brown with a thick, bubbly tan head that falls away to nothing pretty quickly. Super-intense cherry essences all over the nose and palate. Creamy, sticky, almost-thick body with nearly-fizzy carbonation. Deeply intense cherry flavor. Good stuff, fairly refreshing and drinkable given the sugar content and thickness.
