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.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured from 750ml bottle to tulip glass: Pours a bright pinkish red with a soft pink, sticky head that fades to a thin cap. Nice lacing and hazy beading. Very pungent on the nose. So much fruit its ridiculous. Rich cherry, floral bits, white sugar, some honey... massive aromas. Sweet. Tart. Sour. All cherries. I could never finish a whole bottle. Way too much flavor. Definitely an experience. Like no other beer that I can think of. Drinkability is relatively low but its part of the experience. Its a sweet, aggressive sipper. I can see why people go nuts over this stuff but its a bit much for me.

BeerGolem (815) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours medium brown with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma: intense sweet cherries, raisin bread. Taste: Cherries, raisin bread and tropical fruits. Really sweet (little lack of balance here), with slight acidity at the end. Syrupy texture. Slight carbonation. Full bodied. Refreshing, but too much sweetness gives it a low drinkability. Good beer overall tough.

csteele2144 (125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours a ruby red with a slightly orange head. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is sweet, almost medicinal cherry, combined against undertones malt. Dry, very slightly tart finish. Not really my style, but a great fruit beer

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
750ml right after the Rasp Tart. Pours almost the same copper/red color with a nice looking head. Huge ripe cherry aroma wafts from the glass. Sugar, tart funk, and some wheat notes come to mind. Flavor is easy drinking with ripe cherry, caramel, and some funk. Nice and easy drinking. Reminds me of Cerise but 50times better

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Very tasty. Tart and sweet simultaneously. Maybe even a little vinous. Only complaint is that it's a little tough to get through a big portion as the sweet/tart thing wears on your palate. Fantastic in reasonable doses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks for the share Jordan. This brew was just up front delicious and refreshing. Lots of tart cherries and a sugary fruity finish make for a fun, delectable dessert drink.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Thanks to UMNBeerhunter for this as an extra! A: Pours deep, deep cherry red. Says over a pound of cherries in every bottle - it shows. Thick quilt of pink-tan fine foam comes and goes with tips of the drink. Excellent clarity. S: Tart cherries with slight yeasty scent. Very mildly syrup smell. T: Yep, cherries. Like a liquid jolly rancher. Very, very nice. M: Thick, syrupy, light to moderate carb. This beer sticks to my mouth. Man this would be perfect with a dollop of Cherry Garcia in it. D: Absolutely a digestif for a warm afternoon. Slowly sip while reading a book. Very nice. Serving type: bottle 02-26-2011

stoutnick (841) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 On tap at brewery tasting room. Deep crimson and cordial-like. Aroma is generic fruit. Taste is sweet, fruity, mild tart. Couldnt drink a lot if this but delicious. Finish is sherbet fizz. Overall, definitely more fruit than sour. Very mild tang. Solid and drinkable.
