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.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, reddish with an off-white head. Distinct aroma of sweet cherries and marzipan. Medium body with rich, sweet cherries - thick and almost like cherry sauce. Extremely fruity but definitely needs something to balance the extreme sweetness. Not a bad fruit beer at all, but I simply don’t understand the high ratings on this one. So many much better New Glarus beers around. 100507

Leighton (21755) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2015 Bottle, 2000 Vintage, at the 2010 Funky 6. Incredible. Pours cloudy red with a medium, off-white head. Big aroma of sweet cherries, with hints of sourness. Flavor is very sweet, lots of ripened cherries, juiciness, some acidity. Medium bodied with soft, massaging carbonation. Lightly tart on the finish with long, lingering cherry impressions and fruit sugars. Wonderful. (August 2010, score: 4.4)

Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süßer Antrunk nach Marmelade, sehr süß, sich sogar noch steigernd. Dadurch kommen die Krischen nicht gut zur Geltung, das Bier ist aber erfrischend und passend fruchtig. Leckeres Bier, das mit einer gewissen Säuerlichkeit besser wäre. Zum Ende dumpf, leicht holzig. 9/9/10/8/12/9

Theydon_Bois (20139) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to LKS, 24/01/14. Reddish amber with a moderate off white/crimson covering. Nose is cherry skins, almond, tarte berry, cherry bakwell, vanilla. Taste comprises glaced cherries, sweet licks, lightly soured cherry, red berry compote, jammy berry licks. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweetish close. Decent fruit beer but just don’t get these New Glarus fruit bombs anywhere near the 4 mark like most folks seem to manage!

harrisoni (18970) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle at MesandSim’s tasting Aug 09. Thanks to HogTownHarry and Mes for this and to Ruth for allowing us to open this. Clear deep red, lasting beige head. Aroma of red fruits and toast. Some raspberry jam. Cherry and raspberries, slightly sweet like cherry juice. Some good cutting acidity on finish. It is very good. Very cherry-ish. Bit of toffee sweetness. Like cherry toffees. Good? Better than some krieks from Belgium? Not quite. Different and good though. Glace cherry flavours.

rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle, thanks to Nisse666. Deep red beer with a small head. Sweet cherry aroma, a bit sourish fruity. Great cherry flavor, fresh sourish, sweetish, fruity, peppery, maybe some other spices, almond and rubber notes.

mcberko (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
750mL bottle, pours a beautiful ruby red with a small beige head. Aroma of rich sweet and sour cherries, quite sweet and real (nothing artificial here), and some tartness. Flavour of rich cherries, more tart than Raspberry Tart but still not much in the way of sourness / tartness, more intense carbonation as well but not detracting in the flavour. Not complex, but the intense cherry flavours are wonderful. I prefer Raspberry Tart but this is excellent as well.

3.5
Oakes (18167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2001
Complex and flavourful, a well-balanced fruit beer with an explosive fruit character. I guess if anything it could use a touch more dark malt.

3.9
chrisv10 (17920) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Klimaet. Hazy deep red with small off-white head. Aroma is malt, cherries, marzipan, almond stones, fruity and a a little tart. Flavour is malt, cherries, marzipan, almond stones, sweet, tart, little sour, little citric and a little bitter.
