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.

Bottle wax sealed. Pour was a deep red. Flavor was of tart cherries and a little apple. A bit o sweet ontop of the tart to finish. Lots of carbonation. I remember the flavor of tart cherries being the very dominate flavor and its something to expect.

Pours a deep red with a small head round the edge. Aroma is of fresh cherries and it tastes almost like fresh cherry pie, especially as it warms. Like a sweet kriek. Smooth, and filling.

Pours red, almost no head. Smells lilke cherries. Taste is tart cherries, yet still sweet. Finish is great -- slightly sweet to a mild, lasting bitterness; almost more of a sour (but good sour) flavor. What a treat! I should ad this: I don’t usually like fruit in my beer. However, this drink has singlehandedly made me unable to make this claim any more.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy redish color with a slightly pinkish head. Aroma of sour cherries and more sour cherries. Flavor is not as sour as I would have thought by the aroma. Taste like sweet and slightly sour cherries. Delicious and very easy to drink.

Bottle brought in by a customer, sampled at work. Wow!!! Best fruit beer I have ever had. This very cherry beer has a wonderful bouquet that lets you know exactly what you have in store for you. Cherry taste that stays with you for quite a while, so so smooth and even creamy with a great finish that never becomes cloying. The biggest reason I give this such a high score is the finish. It never even hints at that "rotten" sweetness that seems to pervade many of the lesser fruit beers. If you refuse to even give fruit beers a try, try this one anyway. Even if its just for the rating, I don’t think you’ll find a better one to try!

This one gets a 100% All across the board. On tap at the oktoberfest celebration at the brewery. Tested a sampler and brought back 2 bottles. The smell is of a fresh, cherry field farm. Its hard to tell the grains that were used for this. A pound of cherries are used in each bottle. The appearance is a dark ruby color. Very sweet and tastes like cherry juice. Highly carbonated and heavy lace built up around the edges. A great after dinner drink or to share with your girlfriend in celebration. We bought the gift set and can’t wait to try out our new champagne glasses from the brewery..

Bottle. Poured a cloudy reddish-purple color with a light white head. No lacing. Aroma is very strong with a nice sour cherriness to it. Mouthfeel is excellent as it is very smooth. Flavor is a nice tart cherry taste with a nice sour aftertaste. An excellent beer.

Amazing. Thank you juiceisloose. Ruby pour. Aroma is cherries and oak. Taste follows suit. Body is a little fizzy, but not too thin. Haven’t had a better fruit beer to date.

A very nice cherry sparkling ale. Sweet and tart. Great natural cherry flavor.
