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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Pours red with a smallish white head. Smells of cherries and licorice with some farmlike hay qualities. Tastes of cherries, but not too tarte. Slightly sweet and sugary on the finish.

A truly magical beer, poured dark red, with little head. Flavor was obviously cherry, but it had a nice spicy taste to it, my whole toungue danced with the first sip! Cant wait to have again, my boss picked this up for me on a trip, Thanks lee!

Yummy! This beer is the very meaning of nectar of the gods! It is good every single year. I found a local place where it is on tap and order a pitcher at a time! If I really had to pick one beer to drink, I couldnt go wrong with New Glarus Belgian Red.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Very tasty fruit beer, and well executed. I know this is against everything this site represents, but making a faux-porter with this and Guinness mixed 50 / 50 is to DIE for! Chocolate-covered Cherry!

New Glarus is certainly easy to pick out of a lineup of fruit beers. Robust is the best way to describe it. The aroma is like opening a can of cherry pie filling. Beautiful color. Head quickly dissapated. The tart cherry hits you from the start and continues through the finish. Heavy mouthfeel, syrupy without overbearing sweet. Would be perfect in a smaller bottle as an after dinner drink.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a nice deep amber red/ but more of a ruby red than the standard amber ale. Some head with slight lace. Aroma is pure cherry, very sweet and powerful. Sweet and tart cherry pie like flavor with good lively carbonation. Good mouthfeel and body. Perhaps a little too sweet for me but very nice.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Poured a dark ruby red color with small head. Aromas of tart cherry pie filling. Tastes of the same. Tart and sweet tasting as well. Nice balance. As far as fruit beers go, this one has to be one of the best out there.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Poured a deep ruby red with about 1 finger head that dissipated after about a minute. The Door County cherries really shine through on the nose. Beer is well-carbonated and almost champagne-like in the mouthfeel. Cherries and some subtle oak comprise most of the flavor. Aftertaste has more of those wonderful wonderful cherries.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Cloudy, vibrant red colour. Very distinctive marzipan aroma. It took me while to decide whether I liked that (as I cant stand marzipan). In the end I decided that I did - just. Fizzy cherryade character with some sour edges. Definite sweet tinges. Good mouthfeel. Quite nice. Bottled at the London Joet gathering.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours a pale ruby color with tint more like an ale than a fruit. Beautiful peach head that unfortunately dissipates within 45 seconds -- however, I wont slight it for this because with this type of beer it would be expected that fruity acidity will cut down the head; in any case theres plenty of spotty lacing with each sip. Aroma is commendable: about 40% sweet cherry but also about 30% hops and 30% grain. Taste is very complex, with tart cherry at the base but also presenting other elements including Hungarian paprika, apple cider with a cinnamon stick, Lipton tea and a touch of hops. Finish shows a mellowness and has a raisin tinge totally unlike the perhaps too bold tartness in the mouth. I can see how this would finish around the top in its class.
