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.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
750mL red wax-dipped bottle c/o Summer Secret Santa 2012. Huge, huge thanks for this one! Pours hazy, cloudy dark ruby red and crimson, with gradations of orange layered throughout. The 2-finger head is ever-so-slightly pink-tinged. The aroma is overwhelming fresh cherries, noticeable as soon as the cap pops off; mashed, pureed, tart, sweet, sugar-dusted cherries, with lightly tart cherry skins as well. The flavor is sweet and sugary fresh cherry and cherry pie filling. This trends toward tart cherry juice and cherry-infused vinegar, with a slight bitter finish laded with cherry stones and skins; prickly, and tart. Medium-bodied, high carbonation, tart, and really smooth. This is a really nice beer, and the best of the style Ive ever had. Sweet and fruity, but never cloying; my wife loved this. Thanks santa!

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 (237) - 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 (4466) - 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.

jonno (2682) - JAPAN - MAR 17, 2017
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.

Bottle. Thanks Jon. Beautiful aroma of cherry fruitiness, spice and pastry. Taste is perfect, loads of cherry, pastry, lovely stuff. Rich but easy drinking. Great.

TimE (5608) - 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.

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
Appearance: Pours a dark, crimson red with 1 finger head & lots of carbonation. Not bad. Smell: Sour cherry notes with slight sweetness. Nice smelling aroma. Taste: Sourness hits me straight on. Sour cherry with a dry, wood-like quality. Mouthfeel: Heavily carbonated but sourness unrelenting. I would have liked some more sweetness to balance it out.

anstei (1974) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle at RBGT. Pours cloudy ruby. Aroma is superinfused cherries, almost artificial and candy-like. Very sweet, but still medium body, with a refreshing sourness kicking in later. A bit sticky. Sweet palate, with cherries throughout. A bit less would be nicer, though.

StoutBeerReviews (120) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2017
I prefer the raspberry tart one this because the flavor is a bit more intense, but dang, these things do not disappoint. Tons of flavor, EXTREMELY long lasting finish. Quite complex too. Yet very drinkable
