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.

Best fruit beer available! A must buy when in Wisconsin. Really wish New Glarus would sell outside of the state. Door County cherries and beer, a perfect match.

Pours a dark ruby red. Aroma is dark cherries. Super fresh and sweet. Taste is incredible. Its like drinking cherry juice. A mix of sweet and sour. Not overly sugary and well balanced. This is incredible.

Again I must thank Clark for bringing this in. This beer pours more of an auburn in color tan a red (which youd expect from a beer with cherries on the label) and an whitish head. The aroma is all cherry "fruit roll up" as one taster put it, and a slight tartness. The flavor is very sweet, little to no malt flavor, and then some tartness. This has some body to it but there is a little harshness in the finish. Overall for a Belgian style it is extremely drinkable, if you like sweet beers.

Smells like cherry Dimetapp...maybe Ludens cough drops? Wow. Sweet and syrupy. Medicine-like cherry flavors. Good for what it is. Nice carbonation. Some chocolate malt base. Not really my kind of beer, but perfectly executed for what its supposed to be.

Have had this many times, but never rated for some reason. Pours ruby red with pinkish head. Aroma is huge amounts of cherry sweetness with flavor that is similar. Very sweet but not overwhelming. Nice tart finish. Excellent.

Although not a Flemish sour in the traditional sense, this ber is outstanding. An amazing white with pink hued head and a light red/almost fuscia color lead to a cherry explosion on the first sip. Very fine champaign like bubble lend a tingle to the exerience. The cherry flavor is reminiscent of picking up a fresh cherry cider on a side road fruit stand in Door County or Traverse City MI

Bottle from Cavie. Immediately I am hit with an aroma of cherry cough syrup. The color is a nice dark red with a light pink head. The taste is not so heavy on the cough syrup, but still a bit bitter.

Pours cloudy red in my snifter with virtually no head. Aroma is huge tart cherries. Body is light & crisp. I expected flavor to be much more sour than it was, but I absolutely loved the sweet/tart cherry flavor. Ive never had a beer with this much fruit character. Fantastic!

Score is high due to intense enjoyment. For me, this beer is simple but delicious. Poured a hazy strawberry red with a thick reddish-white head that subsided to a thin layer. Aroma of sour cherries and sweetness. Flavor dominated by sour cherries, sweetness, and followed by a fizzy tartness. The sourness, cherries, tartness, acidity, and lively carbonation are very well balanced. I didn't detect the malt or wheat, but as I view this as a tasty fruit beer, I rate it accordingly.
