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.

madsberg (11497) - Sborg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2004
Bottled: Dusty red coloured. Light beige head with a red gleam. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, berries and malt. Sweetness, fruit, some sourness and malt in the flaovur. Very good balance in the sweetness. Ends on a dry and light acidic note. Refreshing. Thanks for this gem, CaptainCougar.

Sammy (11382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Sour cherry ale. Facinating pinkish red colour with pink head. Spicy aftertaste similar to good soda. Warms to the mouth. Sweetness only in mid-sip.

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.

Jesus what a beer. Nice ruby pour, not much of a head. Aroma of cherries and more cherries. Flavor is pure tart cherry fruit roll ups. Damn this one is so delicious. YES!

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle (thanks to Ofortuna). Sour milk, tart cherry aroma with light hint of barnyard. Cloudy red-orange-brown with small head. Sweet and sour cherry with a hint of mulling spices - similar to the sweet fruit lambics. Slightly dry acidic finish. A true work of art - phenomenal fruit beer.

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Ok, I enjoyed another bottle tonight with the wife. We both agree that the aroma is of cherries, butter and brown sugar... quite simply, homemade cherry pie. The flavor is of cherry pie as well; slightly salty crust and all. I had to increase my score. This is just excellent beer. To drink it is like eating homemade cherry pie without the messy cleanup. Best fruit beer Ive ever tried.

deyholla (10442) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured with an amber hue and a thick white head. Aroma was full of cherries, particularly tart, with a bit of alcohol like aroma. The aroma reminded me of cough syrup. Flavor began with sweet cherries but grew in tartness through out.
