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.

Love this beer!!! Taste like Im drinking cherry pie. Low carbonation, but thats fine with this. Nose is nice but could have a little more. In your mouth the HUGE cherry taste explodes in your mouth, a tad sweet then this tartness comes in a cleans it up with long lingering finish.

Poured deep,dark, rich red with a dark pink bubbly head. Smelled of sweet cherries,with a hint of oak. The flovor was slighlty syrupy sweet cherries, and more cherries and more cherries. A big bold flavor that sends you for more. We love to break atasting up with this beer to help clean the palate during a tasting.

Waxed top bottle pours pinkish red. Aroma of cherries. Sweet, moderately tart and of course loads of cherry flavor. Sparkling and light. Spectacular! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FlyingTaco (112) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Original review date 5/3/2008...from 750 into Riedel Extreme Burgundy/Pinot Noir glass. Pours dark cider/caramel color with ample natural cherry hue. Carbonation cloys to bowl of glass; head very thin. Perfumy, natural cherry essence brings the dominant scent here - slight tangy yeast and malt. Just enough citrus funk. This is a treat - understated yet plentiful carbonation delivers a powerful cherry and natural sugar hammer with powerful force. Slight saltiness from carbonation. Nice backbone of yeast, slight citrus and braised malt. This delivers much more of a hearty yet mellow (almost boiled? not a bad thing) mouthfeel. A slight salty tinge from the carbonation hits the back of the mouth with little aftertaste from a long and deep finish. Almost as if theres a significant tannin profile from the cherry skins as would be expected in wine. Gets stronger and more enjoyable with warmth. This is a pleasure to savor but drinks much easier than other offerings crafted at this level of excellence. Great stuff.

Medium body and carbonation, full of cherries and lightly sweet malts. Very berry fruity flavor with some mild tartness.

Wow. Beautiful red color. Highly carbonated, smells and tastes just like cherry pie- seriously. it really does. Its like the best cherry soda you ever tasted with an alcohol content to boot.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Deep red in color yet still brite. Froathy red head, just the way I like em. The aroma is like a fresh cherry pie. I can almost smell the crust. The flavor seems to have a cinnamon like character that takes away from the sweetness of the cherries and adds to the pleasure of the malt. Sour tart and dry in the finish. A true delite.

Hook it up to my veins! Quite possibly one of my favorite beers of all time, the tart balance with a slightly sweet twinge at the end makes this an absolutely irresistible aperatif.

Pours a beautiful red with a very thin beige head. Aroma is completely dominated by cherries. The taste is again dominated by cherries, but you also get a sweet kick that combines into one fantastic brew. Very drinkable beer and probably the best fruit beer out there. This is one that I could drink over and over again!
