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.

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.

&50 2008 vintage (1 year old). Great fruitty cherry profile on the nose. A bit of a muddy red pour (even when yeast was settled). Sweet with just a slight bit of tartness -- a bit bitter due to the hops. A bit out of balanced with the bittersweatness. The hops are n attempt to rebound the sweetness. Just a bit too sweet. MEdium body with perfect carbonation. Overall: too sweet to take down a whole 750, glad I shared this one. I can;t imagine drinking more than 6 ounces of this as a dessert beer. If you want to know a summary of this beer: your kid couldnt tell the difference between this and his/her juice box.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Pours amber with an off-white head. Notes of cherry, sweet tarts, sour & sweet, lightly acidic candy. Full bodied, sweet and sticky with lush carbonation.

Pours a dark mahogany with a small head. Immediate aroma reminded me of Cherry cough syrup. After a bit the tanginess disappeared and it smells more like grandmas cherry pie. Tastes very much like sour cherry pie flavor with a sweet finish.

Fad: Rdlig uklar l med et fint skumhoved. Tyggegummi duft slr dig imde, masser af kirsebr. I en anden sammenhng ville dette vre en fantastisk sommerl. Let syre giver en god smage, men bestemt ikke hvad jeg havde regnet med. Ved nrmere eftertanke fr den lige et nk op.

On tap! Pours mahogany ruby red with no head. Aroma is candy like cherry, wild honey, gummi bears, vanilla, a weak tartness and some wilder notes way behind. A bit one sided, but pretty good. Taste is candy sweetness, red gummi bears, woody dryness, vanilla, concentrated cherry juice, light tartness and some spice.

Surprised I didnt like this better, considering I love cherries and have no aversion to fruit beers. Too sweet and not enough tart, perhaps.

Bottle. The pour is straight red. The aroma is all sweetness. The taste is is sweet cherry, but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
