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.

I can't help it, I love this beer. A friend of mine brought home a three gallon keg of this beautiful beer! I was like drinking liquid cherry pie. Why oh why do they limit distribution to WI when they're are so many of us who want to enjoy this beer! WI must grow the best cherries. The oakiness comes through with every sip. Beautiful reddish-brown head and lace in the glass which stays from start to finish. This is a beer definitely worth persuing, especially since rumor has it that Kasteel is no longer going to be making their red any more. Truly an amazing beer.

Bottle from Krista in Wisconsin. Talk Garnet reddish-brown with lasting ring and a little lace. Ripe cherry and Woody Aroma with hints of floral and caramel. Very sweet ripe cherry with some toasted caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Woody finished with a touch of tart dryness and lingering Sweet Cherry and brown sugar slightly sticky with fine internal carbonation. Very good but too sweet for my taste. Would probably go well with Rich chocolate cake.

gopherfan99 (1693) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle; pours dark red with a reddish brown head; aroma of homemade cherry pie; taste is sweet and very much like cherry pie; finish is dry, with some lingering cherry; the cherry aroma and flavor is dominant but balanced and not overpowering or artificial; best fruit beer I have had to date

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Totalnie nie mj klimat. Słodki kompot wiśniowy, mdły i jednowymiarowy.

drsandman (1387) - New York, USA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle thanks to the Duke. Pours dark red, with pinkish white head. Aroma is super sweet processed cherry perserves, more cherries. Flavor is sweet syrupy cherry, cherry creamsicle / pie, candied fruit. Craziness!

Pilsnertest (261) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2017
Bottle. Taste of sweet cherry. Super smooth. Big body. Raspberry candy. Like a long boil of Boon Kriek. Very elegant.

Ktwse (4709) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Pours cloudy burgundy with low pink head. Aroma of liquored cherries, almond icing, red berries, bretta. Taste is initial berry sweet followed by cherry tart and then a lingering sweet finish. Light and crisp body with average carbonation.

Dr. Pepper beer, but much better than the soda. Lots of juicy, ripe and tart cherries, some fizz, long lingering finish. Great for the ABV. Great way to top off a great start to the year.

TimE (5711) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 24, 2017
Deep red purple color. Intense fresh cherries in the nose, not in away that any other beer can do it. The balance of sweet, tart and spice in the nose is amazing. Medium full body. So much cherries, so well rounded, like eating and drinking the most flavorful cherries you have ever had in your life. Just perfectly executed.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Thanks Virby44 for the bottle! Poured into the wineglass showing dark vinous wine red with white foam lacing. The nose shows strongly sweet maraschino cherries like jolly rancher candies. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. Strongly forward cherries throughout with a light wheat/malty backbone. Light tartness with a slight acidity balances out the entire beer. Nothing like it. Amazing.
