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.

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.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, reddish with an off-white head. Distinct aroma of sweet cherries and marzipan. Medium body with rich, sweet cherries - thick and almost like cherry sauce. Extremely fruity but definitely needs something to balance the extreme sweetness. Not a bad fruit beer at all, but I simply don’t understand the high ratings on this one. So many much better New Glarus beers around. 100507

Bottle at GABF 2008. Dark red/brown - pink head. Marzipan, sweetness, berries, bitterness, tar, high sweetness, light nutty, wheaty. Not smooth and balanced enough....

Tasting cherries(of course!)But also some cinnamonny spiceyness.Dry finish.OK beer, was expecting more, i guess.

GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Significantly better than it’s raspberry counterpart. Tastes like cherry flavored beer. Nothing horribly outstanding in my opinion. But then again I like Grainbelt so what do I know

Koelschtrinker (11987) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süßer Antrunk nach Marmelade, sehr süß, sich sogar noch steigernd. Dadurch kommen die Krischen nicht gut zur Geltung, das Bier ist aber erfrischend und passend fruchtig. Leckeres Bier, das mit einer gewissen Säuerlichkeit besser wäre. Zum Ende dumpf, leicht holzig. 9/9/10/8/12/9

stevie77 (7) - Belgium, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2012 does not count
Smells like cherry pie filling. Deep red color with a pinkish head. Tastes very sweet, cherry, tart, It’s what I’d imagine you would get if you mixed half & half Belgian blonde ale plus a berry wine cooler with a large glob of pie filling. Not really my thing.
