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 “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.

BeerGolem (776) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours medium brown with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma: intense sweet cherries, raisin bread. Taste: Cherries, raisin bread and tropical fruits. Really sweet (little lack of balance here), with slight acidity at the end. Syrupy texture. Slight carbonation. Full bodied. Refreshing, but too much sweetness gives it a low drinkability. Good beer overall tough.

Pours a ruby red with a slightly orange head. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is sweet, almost medicinal cherry, combined against undertones malt. Dry, very slightly tart finish. Not really my style, but a great fruit beer

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
750ml right after the Rasp Tart. Pours almost the same copper/red color with a nice looking head. Huge ripe cherry aroma wafts from the glass. Sugar, tart funk, and some wheat notes come to mind. Flavor is easy drinking with ripe cherry, caramel, and some funk. Nice and easy drinking. Reminds me of Cerise but 50times better

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

Thanks for the share Jordan. This brew was just up front delicious and refreshing. Lots of tart cherries and a sugary fruity finish make for a fun, delectable dessert drink.

Thanks to UMNBeerhunter for this as an extra! A: Pours deep, deep cherry red. Says over a pound of cherries in every bottle - it shows. Thick quilt of pink-tan fine foam comes and goes with tips of the drink. Excellent clarity. S: Tart cherries with slight yeasty scent. Very mildly syrup smell. T: Yep, cherries. Like a liquid jolly rancher. Very, very nice. M: Thick, syrupy, light to moderate carb. This beer sticks to my mouth. Man this would be perfect with a dollop of Cherry Garcia in it. D: Absolutely a digestif for a warm afternoon. Slowly sip while reading a book. Very nice. Serving type: bottle 02-26-2011

stoutnick (826) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 On tap at brewery tasting room. Deep crimson and cordial-like. Aroma is generic fruit. Taste is sweet, fruity, mild tart. Couldn’t drink a lot if this but delicious. Finish is sherbet fizz. Overall, definitely more fruit than sour. Very mild tang. Solid and drinkable.

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 doesn’t 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 Glarus’s huge portfolio of awesome fruit beers.
