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.

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.

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.

mcberko (15432) - 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.

Bottle. Dark red/brown colour. Aroma of cherries/cherry sauce. Quite sweet, slightly acidic. Acidity burns at the back of my throat.

Bottle at GABF 2008. Dark red/brown - pink head. Marzipan, sweetness, berries, bitterness, tar, high sweetness, light nutty, wheaty. Not smooth and balanced enough....

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. Theres an oaky/astringency touch. Gets bitter with time. Mouthsmackingly wonderful.

Tmoney99 (13901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle trade from shigadeyo. Poured hazy reddish brown color an average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Heavy dark cherry fruit aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid complex dark fruity flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Standout drinkable fruit beer.
