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.

bierkoning (13070) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 75 cl bottle. Maraschino cherries aroma with mint. Sweet, sugary, almost syrupy cherry flavor. Marzipan. Sweet indeed, but somewhat vinous and liquor-like. Some lemony sourness. A bit too sweet, but actually quite nice.

BeerandBlues2 (12847) - 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.

Dogbrick (12640) - 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 (12498) - 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.

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.

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

crossovert (12274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2011
750ml capped and waxed green bottle. A "World Champion" according to the label. Pours into my oversized wineglass with a borwn/red hue. A small bubbly white head rises a centimeter high with a vigorous pour. Smell is of cherries, nothing much more than that. It does smell delicious though. Has a solid tart Wisconsin cherry flavor that mixes with a tad bit of malt giving a cherry pie feel. I really like the taste of the cherries, there not the crappy sweet variety but there is an ample amount of sugar backing. It seems like there might be a few spices thrown in as well. Nice mouthfeel with good carbonation that coats the tongue. Drinkability is that of fruit juice. Its a great fruit beer if a bit sweet.
