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.

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.

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.

75cl, no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with cherries, thx alot to Eric for bringing this over!, complex fruit brew, sweet/sour/fruity and slightly woody/vinous/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew

Bottle: Dark ruby, blushing cherry color with an off-white chunky foam that seems to either have a slight tint of lavender to it, or the red beer below is playing tricks on me. Straight up cherry aroma. Lightly tart, mostly sweet, almost like a cherry pie filling that needs just another half cup of sugar. Small underscore of brown sugar & grain. Flavor is the same way, just a huge orgy of cherries hammer fucking every single nook & cranny in your oral orifice. Lightly tart & acidic up front & in the finish with a long, drawn out sweetness that bridges the gap in between. The somewhat abrupt, zesty finish ensures that the sweetness of the beer doesnt wear you down too quickly. While I prefer Raspberry Tart (only because I enjoy raspberries more than cherries, really), this is a beyond solid staple in New Glaruss huge portfolio of awesome fruit beers.

Pours a dark ruby-red with a finger of off-white foam. Moderate lacing. Nose is a blast of tart cherries, some caramel notes, and a hint of muskiness. Taste is tart up front with an underlying sweetness thats pleasantly balanced. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Tasty brew.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby red when pinkish head. Aroma is strong cherry nose. Taste is a nice mix of subtle sweetness and medium tartness. Nice long subtle tart finish. Great fresh cherry flavor. Definitely the best cherry beer I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vestergaard (1910) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle thanks to Klimaet! Pours a hazy, deep red. Big pink head. Aroma has tons of cherry, lots of earthy yeast, acid, slight vinegar, slight sulfur. Lemon, red apples. Taste is super fruity, acidic, citric, sweet, juicy, lots of cherry, candy. Nice and drinkable. Average carb and an oily, juicy body. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Bill Young. Pours hazy muddy red with a small offwhite head. Aromas of sweet candy cherries, tart candy sours, marzipan, vinegary tartness. Taste about the same. Sour cherries, candy, malty, tart cherry pits.

One of the great classics of the American craft beer revolution, gift from Ster who brought it all the way from Wisconsin for me, which I am very grateful for; shared with her and other people at Belgium Chimipalooza. Thick, creamy, off-pinkish head over a hazy, deep cherry-red beer with beautiful ruby glow. Aroma of sweet cherry candy and cherry jam, candied lemon, caramel, lime zest, vanilla, grape peel, ripe blackberry, stewed apple, fruit pie. Sweet, initially almost candyish but still not cloying cherry flavour, very rich like a cherry pie and cherry jam, residual sugars, soft bready wheat base, thin but effective lemony sourish sting peeping up in the middle and lasting till the end, balancing the cherry pie sweetness; spritzy body, sweet and sourish finish, full and not too sticky. Totally different from what I had expected, even reminded me a bit of Lindemans Kriek at a certain moment, but altogether very different from the sweetened cherry lambics at the same time, more bready, more moelleux and - most importantly - much more genuinely fruit-like. Very interesting and unique, too bad this isnt more easily available outside of Wisconsin.
