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 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.

An unclear red beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma contains notes of marcipan and cherries. While the flavor contains notes powerful notes of fruit and cherries.

Bottle courtessy of Eyedrinkale. Cherry color and red head. Flavor and aroma of sweet and tart cherries. Light and refreshing. But not very complex.

Not sure why this beer is rated so high. It tastes like cherry Kool-Aid with alcohol in it. Not what I look for in a beer. However, It was good if you like Kool-Aid. Iím not familiar with fruit beers. It did have a nice finish. I think me and Drewbeerme had the same beers lined up for the Superbowl. Worth trying.

Bottle at the Knoxville Spring(ish) tasting. Pours hazy rust color. The aroma is very fruity, and immediately reminds me of Juicy-Juice. The flavor is berry (mostly cherry) juice. Beer elements are there, but are overwhelmed by fruit juice flavors. Some honey sweetness manifests itself, as well as some occasional faint bitterness, but its mostly cherry. Pretty good, but itís more of a juice than a beer.

This beer offers lots of big cherry flavor, replete with a puckering mouthfeel of cherry sourness. It is good, but I canít help but feel highly over-rated. It offers a cherry tartness so rich, I feel like Pac-Man (level one) when drinking it. I would almost prefer something a bit more understated and nuanced, like the Lindemans kriek. Still, I love sour, so it is difficult for me to badmouth this beer. Its color was not as pleasant as I expected (more of a red brown than a brilliant ripe-fruit red), and aroma was just so-so, but that flavor was a big punch of flavor that I really enjoyed.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle@Home. Very fruity aroma, mainly cherry but also some black berries. But thatís it actually, nothing tart, wood or whatever to be found. Cloudy, deep red colour, beige head, good lace. Very fruity, lots of cherry again, little tart in the start but this just disappears leaving a sweet marzipan and light bitter drink. Itís tasty, but itís more fruit juice than Belgian Red.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pours a reddish brown with a large lasting head. Very carbonated apparently. Aroma is of boysenberry soda/wine cooler, a little dusty, slightly creamy. Flavor is very creamy, with huge cherry flavor, a little malt. No, this isnít a wine cooler; that is apparent now. Like raspberry-vanilla sherbet meets pale ale. One of the most unique things Iíve ever tasted. Very sweet, note. Medium viscosity and carbonation. Overall, very good minus.

Bottle thanks to Stfun! I was very excited to try this and had pretty high hopes. Pours a reddish light brown with tan head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma slaps you in the face with cherries, tart and dried, and you really need to dig to find some toasted malt and some spices. Flavor is almost overwhelming of cherries, sweetness, and sourness. I tasted this next to Founders Cerise and honestly had difficulty differentiating between the two. This is definitely not my type of beer. It tasted like I was drinking some cherry wine and not a beer. I wanted beer with some nice strong hints of cherry. It didnít deliver.

Pours reddish purple/pink with a pink head. The aroma is super fruity with mostly cherries, cranberries and such. The flavor is full on canned cherry pie filling. Sweet and sour with maybe a touch of oak. Very full bodied, almost syrupy. This would go well with certain meals, but I guess I just donít get this beer. Definitely unique.
