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: SEP 28, 2009 A very thin white head tops a very dark cloudy red body. The aroma hits you from the bottle and continues right into the glass. It is deep cherry pie with a touch of cinnamon and butter. The first thing i noticed as I drank this was that it is smooth with a creamy mouthfeel. The taste is sour cherries, a little hay and cinnamon. The finish is peppery and lively. This is excellent and would be perfect as a dessert with a fruit pie or cheese cake. It could be a little more tart.

Near perfect, cloudy ruby red with firm thick head. Bright sour cherry aromas, and some faint wood. Sparkling bright cherry flavors, with dry/ sour finish. Refreshingly tart. Awesome Beer!!!

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 What an awesome beer! Pours a clear beautiful red, amaller white head. Taste is cherry, not sour or overpowering. Very clean deep cherry flavor. What a beer!

Easily one of Americas finest beers. There are a million things going on in the flavor of this one. Truly a joy to behold in a champagne glass.

Holy shit. This is absolutely in the top 5 fruit beers I have ever had. Can you say a liquid version of grammas homemade cherry pie. Super.

Sweet monkey... Lighter red color with no real head. Aroma is solidly cherry, but not overwhelmingly so. Good burst of cherries on the tongue with a surprising malty backbone. I had it at room temp and it was nice and tasty; have to try it cold next time around.

flute glass: this is an amazing fruit beer. as for aroma... upon relieving the cap from the bottle, i was reminded of an intense cherry cola. and at first, its flavor reminded me a little bit of a geueze, but then it quickly claimed itself as just an excellent fruit beer. its at first dry and sour; there are tart cherries. the aftertaste is sweet and delicious; the overall flavor and palate is cutting. as oakes said, perhaps it could use some dark malt... but then i think it wouldnt be appropiate to its style; i think more malt and complexities will only make it something else. its great as it is; the dark and woodsy cherriness is great. it s a cherry brew. its a fruit beer. more notes... appearance: dark and murky red brown body; off-white head tainted with a bit of red; the head is tight and cremey, it leaves sparkly lace, and it diminishes into a great ring around the glass. overall: wow.

Thanks to Eyedrinkale for sharing this at Brewtopia 04. Deep red color. The aroma is outstanding! Rich, fresh cherries! No hop aroma here, this lets the cherries take the front of the stage and they dont disappoint at all. The flavor is nicely tart with fruity sweetness which is perfectly in balance. A delightfully different beer.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 Light burgundy body. Best cherry aroma ever. Just like warm cherry pie, crust and all. I spent the better part of 20 minutes just sniffing this one. Heavily sweet throughout with a light acidity in the finish. Medium body, creamy/oily texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: (drools). edit 1/4/05: body is fuller than I originally thought and the carbonation is a bit heavier. Still smells and tastes great. Oak is much more apparent now that I have a 750 of this than it was with my original, smaller sample. Im bumping up the flavor (9->10), palate (4->5), and overall (17->19) now that I have a larger sample. Props to ClarkVV!
