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.

AWISLguy (2711) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2015
750ml bottle from Jeffs in West Bend during the initial cherry scare, and cellared for 2 years - shared with K&K. Great reddish orangey brown color. Very clean, tart, cherry, lightly other fruit meld. No noticeable aging. Smoother than smooth. 15.3

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle: Dark ruby, blushing cherry color with an off-white chunky foam that seems to either have a slight tint of lavender to it, or the red beer below is playing tricks on me. Straight up cherry aroma. Lightly tart, mostly sweet, almost like a cherry pie filling that needs just another half cup of sugar. Small underscore of brown sugar & grain. Flavor is the same way, just a huge orgy of cherries hammer fucking every single nook & cranny in your oral orifice. Lightly tart & acidic up front & in the finish with a long, drawn out sweetness that bridges the gap in between. The somewhat abrupt, zesty finish ensures that the sweetness of the beer doesnt wear you down too quickly. While I prefer Raspberry Tart (only because I enjoy raspberries more than cherries, really), this is a beyond solid staple in New Glaruss huge portfolio of awesome fruit beers.

Cybercat (5323) - Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours clear reddish amber with a thick and fine-bubbled buff head. Aroma has a strong overtone of fresh cherries. Sweet and sour cherry dominates the flavor but lets through peeps of malt and wood. Firm texture has lively fizz and leaves a nice cherry finish. Cheers for cherries!

Bottle. Pours clear ruby red with of creamy off-white head. Aroma is apples, cherries, bready and cereal malts, and huge floral sweetness. Flavor is chewy malt profile with tons of cherry and apple fruit notes and loads of sweetness. Well balanced and very tasty. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle cotteridge pissup. Wow!!! Red thin head aroma is cherry jam taste same cherry drops some steawberry raspberry so sweet with great tartness to balance out. Great sticky body with good carbonation to break it up. Beer of the night for me sensational stuff good easily have drunk the bottle to myself. I wish I could buy it from my local gas station!

GlasgowTAD (1458) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Colour is burgundy red and it pours with a pink thick-set head that stays. Aroma is cherries and hay? Taste is cough drops (in a good way) then tart cherry and a sweet semi-dry finish. The flavour lingers around on the palate for a while, teasing your brain.

The_Osprey (7126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Thanks to Leighton. Cloudy red / brown, small ring of white head. Aroma is cherries, berries, plasticine and jam. Body is medium, slightly foamy, medium carbonation. Taste is juicy fruits, soft malt backbone, jammy sweet, dark cherry compote. For me this was the best beer on the day - complex yet very drinkable.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015: Cotteridge Wine meet, shared bottle. Cherry B was/is a cherry wine in the UK and this had the same aroma. Sweet cherries abound in this brew from the colour right through to the slightly souring finish. Not really my thing but an interesting take on the more traditional Belgian style.

Garrold (4626) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Hazy, mucky, reddy amber. Huge cherry. Sour cherry. Taste is sweet. Some light sour. Rich, and a bit syrupy.
