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.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2004 Re-Rate 11/27/2004 Murky reddish body. Lasting pink head. The aroma is massive cherry. Revisiting this beer think that my initial exhuberence was a bit high. The flavor is totally cherry some light wheaty malt, but mainly cherry. I want to like it but it somehow does not mesh. It is too disjoint for me. The flavors are good but the sum is less than the parts.

Old Rating 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0 Very nice red body with a lovely, creamy, rocky, red hued head that clings to the glass in great sheets. The aroma of cherries is evident the minute the cap is popped. The flavor is extraordinary, cherries are dominatn at first then a new level of complexity opens up as sweet malt and even some hops. The body is medium and quite lively with a very strong cherry aftertaste that manages to not where out its welcome or become cloying. A very unique and very good beer.

Bottle. Dark red/brown colour. Aroma of cherries/cherry sauce. Quite sweet, slightly acidic. Acidity burns at the back of my throat.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is murky dark red. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted light bread), with a strong note of cherry. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very sweet...my girlfriend would love this. Enough tartness to keep it from being a total wash, though, and the aroma is strong with fresh cherry.

Pinkish-red beer with little but sweet cherries in the nose. Tastes pretty sweet but with a tangy, tart terry chang. I mean cherry tang. Whatever. Intense cherry flavor, almost one-dimensionally so. Lively mouthfeel. Dessert beer. Nothing wrong with that, but a bit sweet for my blood.

Bottle from Cavie. Immediately I am hit with an aroma of cherry cough syrup. The color is a nice dark red with a light pink head. The taste is not so heavy on the cough syrup, but still a bit bitter.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. Pours a nice red colour with a lacy beige head. Aroma reminds me of cherry cough syrup. Really sweet cherry flavour. No almond. Lemon tartness that develops slowly and a foamy mouth-feel. This one divided opinion. Not really my thing, bit too sweet.

3 ounce taster glass at New Glarus Brewery. I’ll admit it: my tastebuds are untrained in the art of fruit beer. This stuff tasted like cough syrup to me. My message is, even if you enjoy extreme-flavored beer, cherry varieties may not be your thing. Still, good luck to New Glarus on the frontier of brewing!

imdownthepub (11132) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Hazy reddish amber with slight head. Sweet cherries from the off in this one, cherryade then a hint of sourness. Next to no subtlety around this. Too over the top for my taste.

Red-brown coloured. Aroma of cherries and marzipan. Very sweet and concentrated, but natural cherry flavour. Highly carbonated.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle conditioned?, Babblefest at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Hazy red brown, moderate off white head and gentle condition. Sweet almond marzipan and gentle metallic notes in the nose, more marzipan and a fruity tartness in the mouth that lingers into the finish.
