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.

Bottled
Hazy murky red color, small off-white head. Intensive fresh cherry aroma. Lactose and sweet cherry in the flavor. Sweet, sugary, good be more sour. Some peppery notes in the aftertaste. I was expecting more and therefore I am wondering how this is in Top50.

Poured a hazy red with a light pink head. The nose was of cherries and thats about it. No yeast, no malt, no beer. Just cherry. The taste started with... you guessed it, Cherry! Sweet at the start, dry and tart at the finish. Despite its murkiness it really has a delicate feel on the tongue. Almost like sparkling wine. It does have a definite malt presence, but doesnt have the sticky cloyingness that an American wheat beers have. Its drinkablity depends on your tollerance for cherries. For me a 750 ml bottle treats me just fine.

Easy enough to make a sweet fruit beer enjoyable, and this certainly was enjoyable. Nose of sweet cherries and tart fruit; people with me kept saying cranberry juice. Lovely hazy reddish color with a small head. Taste of sweet cherries, lightly malted, could use more offsetting bitterness, and a sourness that might also have come from the cherries or some lambic activity. Average mouth feel, not cloying or syrupy as I had feared. Maybe a bonus point for being low alcohol. Easy to get a high rating with a sweet fruity beer, but this one was nice.

DietPepsican (1587) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2008
Red pour with a thin pink head. Strong cherry aroma. Flavor is sweet cherry, caramel, apple, and some wood. Some butter. Finishes very sweet, medium carbonation. Great for a 4oz after dinner pour, but it gets to be too much if you even split a bottle with another person.

Strykzone (7116) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Enjoyed on New Years Eve ’08. Pour is a funky red with an aroma full of cherry and rhubarb. Very sweet. Flavor is much the same. This is very fizzy with a soda pop feel. Nice, though. This is one I had heard so much about that the hype was bigger than the beer.

Bottle. Aroma of sweet cherries (but naturally sweet cherries, not artificially sugary or anything). Flavor adds in some sour cherry notes, but is still predominantly sweet, and certainly all about the cherry. Though tasty, this one didnt give me near the cherrigasm that Raspberry Tart did for its namesake fruit, and was more a pleasant drink than particularly memorable.

BillKismet (3976) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
After all these years, not at all what I was expecting. An alluring red-orange with a minimal head. Ethereal cherry bomb aroma, followed by a nice cherry flavor, that is relatively well-balanced. High amounts of unfermentables, with a soft sweetness that does not become too much. An excellent dessert libation, but not remotely beery.

A- Pours a translucent reddish brown with a 1.5 finger frothy head after a vigorous pour that dissipates quickly. S- Smells is candy sweet, cherries, rich malty backbone. T- Taste is earthy, hints of cherry, a tad sour, maybe hints of toffee. M- Fairly thick and maybe a bit too carbonated for my taste. D- Well crafted but I can barely drink 1 glass. Way too fruit forward for me. I like fruit beers a little more subtle than this.

Bouteille verte de 750 ml, rapporte du Wisconsin par Dany. Armes trs intenses de cerises sres. Robe rouge et claire, lgre mousse rose. En bouche, les cerises sres sont omniprsentes et naturelles. Heureusement la bire demeure relativement peu sucre et possde un corps souple. Finale sre et lgrement acide. Intressant, mais les cerises dominent et crasent totalement les autres saveurs.
