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.

Ratman197 (14674) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2006
750 ml bottle poured a hazy maroon with a small diminishing ruddy pink head. Aromas of pie cherries, hint of lemon and wheat. Palate was medium bodied and tart. Flavors of our pie cherries, light wheat and a bit of lemon with a dry tart lingering cherry finish.

Scopey (14508) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Keg at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours hazy deep red, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sweet cherry, artificial notes, cherry tunes (the sweet), marzipan and almond. The taste is sweet cherry, residual syrupy sweetness, hint of tangy lime, cherry tunes and gummy bears, with a dry finish. Medium body, average carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. I was hoping for a bit more tartness. Far too sweet. Tastes a lot like a commercial Belgian kriek.

imdownthepub (14467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Hazy reddish amber with slight head. Sweet cherries from the off in this one, cherryade then a hint of sourness. Next to no subtlety around this. Too over the top for my taste.

djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear red with a small off pink head. The aroma is cherry fruit. Thin mouthfeel with a syrupy cherry flavor and sweet finish. A very impressive fruit beer.

Tmoney99 (14365) - 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.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 Bright red, cloudy with small off-white head. Aroma is cherry, sweet with a hint of sourness. Taste is sweet up top, and sour cherry mid-tongue. Medium/full body. Somehow it avoids the cherry soda experience and gives you something wonderful.

4.3
Lubiere (13780) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2005
Red cherry coloured ale with a nice rose head. Wild cherry aroma, like cheesecake, with cinnamon notes. Sweet cherry pie or cherry covered cheesecake, cinnamon, lactic acid notes. Deep cherryish body, rich, smooth, with nice acidity. A wonderful cherry pie. Tasted at Institut’s gambrinale, Outaouais, Oct. 28 2005. Bought from Restant du Mondial.

Drake (13647) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Poured into a flute. Cherry red with a medium and fast dissipating head. Aroma is strong candied cherry with a background of yeast. As others have said, this is like drinking a cherry pie. Flavor is intense. Definitely a sipping beer. Very nice.

3.1
Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
Deep amber with a small off-white head. Strong sweet cherry aroma with marzipan, malt, caramel, and a hint of sugar. Very sweet cherry flavour with a faint tart note. Perfumed marzipan/cherry a bit cloying.
