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.

djd07 (12550) - 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.

DSG (12533) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 Re-rate 5/10/12: Draught sample at Sour & Bitter. A lot of sweet cherries, slightly candy-ish, and just very light tartness. 8/4/7/4/15=3.8

[9/5/09] Bottle sample during LCRBM at Kulminator in Antwerp. Dark murky red-brown. Aroma of sweet cherries, sugar and some marzipan notes. Sweet cherries flavor with oak, some malt, caramel, other dark fruits notes and some candies. Medium to full body. Silky. 8/4/7/4/15=3.8

BeerandBlues2 (12477) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Bottle obtained via trade with moejuck. Pours hazy, muddy amber and burnt orange with a small and quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Aroma is sour lemon and cherry, cherry skin, earthy yeast, straw malt, other fruit (apple, apricot, pineapple) and butter. Initially very sweet cherry syrup and then the tartness rescues you from it taking your mouth to the other extreme and waking all saliva glands at once with a puckering lemon zing. Sweet malt and trace yeast, cherry skins and buttered bread. Medium bodied and dry palate. Not a Top 50 in my ever so humble opinion.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 750 ml bottle with wax sealer-thanks to the transport from Rutgers 6 months ago to Wisconsin and his girlfriend for sharing. Aroma is cherry, taste follows, OK carbonation, good body, a bit of hops, good finish. A bit like a good cherry pie meets a nice beer. Nice taste. 3.4. 110806--thanks Bigmmartin. 3.8

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2009
Bottle. [thank you, madmitch76]
Pours lightly muddy deep red with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white to pink head. Aroma has lots of marzipan, fresh cherries, red apples, light tartness, tangerine, caramel malts. Medium carbonation, fine lightly prickly carbonation. Flavour is quite sweet, cherries are fresh and quite prominent. Sweet, but not cloying. Lovley spicy note with pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Quite dry in the finish with the marzipan shining through. Quite lovely and drinkable, but a top 50 beer? Not really.

Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Sample courtesy of a travelling fellow beer lover. This brew pours a lustrous brownish, purplish red with a medium thick and fizzy beige head that dissipates steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet cherries blended with other tart fruit, sweet spice, and wheat. Medium-bodied with a complex fruit character of fresh cherries and strawberries along with spices and malts. Light wheat and yeast undertones at times. The finish is richly fruity and tart and leaves a lingering cherry aftertaste. Quite simply the best Fruit beer I have had.

kermis (12030) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottle shared. Pours clear red brown with a ring off white head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Flavour is over moderate sweet. Light medium bodied with high carbonation. Really dont understand the big ratings in this, its like one of those sweetened Belgian Krieks that we all typically turn out noses up at.

Pinball (11981) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012
cloudy dark red, smooth light brownish head. Strong aroma of cherries, sweet marcipan, flavor is cherries, sour citrussy tinge that works extremely well, like an ice cider, quite sweet in general but the citric touch makes it very good.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Poured a dark ruby red color with small head. Aromas of tart cherry pie filling. Tastes of the same. Tart and sweet tasting as well. Nice balance. As far as fruit beers go, this one has to be one of the best out there.
