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.

#900.......A big thank you to JPDIPSO for this one. First of all, let me get this over with and state that I preferred the Raspberry Tart ever so slightly to this one, but this one kicks ass also (I gave the RT a 4.7, this one gets a 4.6). New Glarus beers absolutely rule. This one poured ruby red with a big, fluffy, pink head. Aroma of big cherries, slight hops and malt. Tastes incredible, with a great cherry flavor backed up by a solid malt backbone and some great layered finishing hops and tartness. Finishes medium bodied, slightly tart. The hand-poured wax on the bottle is a nice touch, also. This beer just screams quality, complexity, and balance. It isnt some gimmicky crap, either. As it warmed, the flavor profile became even more complex, with noticable malt, hops, of course the cherries. Ill take this, and the raspberry tart, over any wine any day of the week, hands down.

Bottle shared with Casey, Tracey and Loz at a great American beer tasting evening 11-04-08 hosted by Casey and Tracey, cheers mate! Slightly sour cherry milkshake type aroma with good yoghurt like qualities, really interesting. There is the most delicious flavour to this, I had this vision of Oompah Loompahs loading bucket after bucket of wonderful fresh ripe cherries into the cask whilst singing a merry little ditty, thats the thing about this beer it certainly takes you off elsewhere with every sip. A wonderfully sharp but sweet, fruity but soft chocolatey taste to this beer I loved it, many thanks to Casey for sharing this classy beer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 July 2007. Bottle. Rich ruby coloured body no head by the time it got to me but I will give it the benefit of the doubt based on past experience. Massive aroma of sweet cherries with a tiny note of cherry pits. Yowza! Complex cherry flavour are sweet then tart with just the vaguest hint of sourness. If I liked cherries more this would be a 10/10. Smooth palate is just a touch light but is perfectly appropriate for this beer. Aroma still fills the glass with just a drop left - amazing. Must... re-try... raspberry tart. +/3+/8-9/3+/16-18 - 4.4 <P>June 5 2004 Tiggmtls post-Mondiale: Bright ruby red, and nice off white head, less of the dregs of the bottle than the previous sample. Big cherry aroma with ever so slight cough syrup medicinal notes. Complex flavour profile, with multiple levels, tart around the edges of a big sweet cherry foundation. 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0 <P> April 2004 - Nice aromatics of sour cherries is my first impression. Flavour of sour cherries is dominant over a bit of malt and a sweet foundation. Amazing palate for this type of beer. Small sample courtesy of NorthYorkSammy. 8/4/8/4/16 - 4.0

Bottle at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a thin beige head. Nose is all fruit. Big cherry notes with a touch of caramel. Flavor is incredible. Sweet and sour cherry with a lovely tangutterly gorgeous. Im glad I have a bottle of this still sitting in the cellar thanks to daknole, because I am going to relish drinking this again.

Look is very shady murky brown like mud almost. Tan head. Sweet cherry scent, some bitter almond. Sweet and still very sour taste. Sour aftertaste. Very low bitterness. Feels like a non-alcoholic cherry soft drink. Taste a bit like cherry-coke.
