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.

This is my 200th ratebeer beer via argo0 via volgon. For a second hand ratebeer beer this was interesting. Also, this beer was weird. I have never had one of these belgian sours, so I was not sure what to expect. This is what I thought. STRONG cherry aroma. I thought there was a Vic's odor factor. The flavor is sweet, very cherry, very sour. It is like some kind of cherry candy that I had when I was a child. Very fizzy, and very good. Wine like, and excellent. I like it even if it was weird. 2nd I forgot to enter #s on.

The perfect blend of fruit and beer. The tart Wisconsin cherry flavor is very strong. The barley malt is a great compliment to the cherry. This is one of the few fruit beers that I like, let alone rave about.

Opaque ruby red color with moderate head that quickly dissipates. Strong cherry pie filling aroma (the cherries without the goop -- the more sour (but still quite sweet) aroma). Lovely spiced-cherry flavor. Mildly tart, but mostly sweet. Not at all cloying. The spiciness is something like ginger or coriander. It's not pronounced, but it adds a little kick of texture and complexity. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 Hazy raspberry with a small rose tinted head. Cherry, cherry, cherry. Quite a fantastic tart aroma of the aformentioned fruit remiscent of yogurt, or pie filling. A little bit of malt aromas come through in the form of caramelizd sugars. Starts sweet then sour and finishes sour and dry. Great stuff...

Bottle. Dark cloudy reddish brown color (almost like homemade cider) with a creamy light brown and pink head. The aroma is wonderful with apples, cinnamon, and sweet cherries. I was satisfied just to keep taking in the aroma. It starts with a tart tingle on the tongue and is soon followed by the highly sweet and sour cherry. Finishing with a cinnamon and cherry aftertaste, this beer a true joy. Not as full and malty as I remember the Rodenbach beers. Thanks to my friend Todd for sending this to me from Wisconsin.

Dullish red pour with an intense pink head. Tart nose to match the flavor. Glad this was able to avoid being to soda-ish. Nice summer brew but more than one could be a bit much.

color is a dull brick-red with a certain "greyish" quality to it...i know that doesnt make any sense, but tough luck, this is MY rating! very much an earthy quality to it. most excellent tart nose to it...s wonderful cherry/lemon mixture..also, i get kind of a heavy cheese nose to it as well. that wonderful cheesy/tartness also exists in the flavor. the excellent tartness remains on your cheeks for quite some time! this is truly a wonder ale and probably one of the biggest surprise beers to date for me!. all the wonderful tartness without all the cloying sweetness.

Slightll cloudy with a great cherry nose. Sweet cherry body throughout that leaves you wanting another sip. A great brew for these hot Georgia days.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 Bright red, cloudy with small off-white head. Aroma is cherry, sweet with a hint of sourness. Taste is sweet up top, and sour cherry mid-tongue. Medium/full body. Somehow it avoids the cherry soda experience and gives you something wonderful.

Big cherry aroma, hazy reddish colour, with a large pink head, plenty of lace. As true a cherry flavour a beer could have! Tart, acidic, wonderfully dry finish, yet very refreshing. Delicious, Sensational!
