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.

yngwie (17056) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. (thx to papsoe) Red, almost clear brew with a slightly artificial-feeling cherry nose, followed by almond and sugar. Marzipan, cherry and sugar in the flavor. Full, sticky mouthfeel. Astringent, citric finish with cherry. Too sweet, almondy and artificial-feeling. Unbalanced on the sweet side. Ok, so it’s a nice beer, but I can’t understand why it has so high ratings. (070510)

Bottle thanks to Rando7. Pours a dark red with strawberry head. Nose is Luden’s Cherry cough drops, cherries and cream. Taste is pure cherry bliss. Nice full mouth feel. Absolutely delicious.

A: Wisconsin Belgian Red pours a cloudy, cherry red color with some hints of brown. A layer of pink foam sits atop the beer. S: The first thing I thought of when smelling this beer was cherry pie. A slight tartness is present as well, but diminishes as the beer warms. T: The flavor profile is very similar to the nose. An absolutely amazing cherry pie taste. The tartness is a bit more noticeable than in the nose. But once again, the sweetness comes through more and more as the beer warms up. M: A fairly high level of carbonation gives a feeling of a dryer finish than this beer really has. D: A really great and tasty beer. I don’t think I could drink the whole 750ml though, as it is very sweet.

Bottle @ Blindtasting, Odense, July 2011. Pours unclear red with a small creamy head. Sweet nose of fresh cherries and a bit of almond , vanilla and marzipan. Sweet - not sickening but still a bit too much and one-sided.

MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2004
Bottle. Dark red/brown colour. Aroma of cherries/cherry sauce. Quite sweet, slightly acidic. Acidity burns at the back of my throat.

Ferris (15586) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle - Sweet maraschino cherries. Cloudy red/brown with a decent white head. Lots of sweet cherry, but has something odd later that cuts the cloying sweetness a little. Sweet and nice but a dessert beer for sure.

bhensonb (15253) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle sent by ericandersnavy. Thanks for this one man. Pours orange tinged ruby with a lightly pinkish head. It smells like cherries. Medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation. It is slightly sweet, slightly tart and very cherry. There’s an oaky/astringency touch. Gets bitter with time. Mouthsmackingly wonderful.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle at GABF 2008. Dark red/brown - pink head. Marzipan, sweetness, berries, bitterness, tar, high sweetness, light nutty, wheaty. Not smooth and balanced enough....
