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.

Amazing. Thank you juiceisloose. Ruby pour. Aroma is cherries and oak. Taste follows suit. Body is a little fizzy, but not too thin. Havent had a better fruit beer to date.

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.

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 (1720) - 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 (114) - 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

750 ml poured to wine glass. Split with Jeff and Gretchen. Bottle from 2015 given Patrick K. Pours deep red with 1/2 finger carbonated head. Intense sweet cherry flavor. Slightly acetic, low bitterness. Really work class beer.

kchampagne (173) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Pours a dark ruby red. Aroma is dark cherries. Super fresh and sweet. Taste is incredible. Its like drinking cherry juice. A mix of sweet and sour. Not overly sugary and well balanced. This is incredible.

basaywhat (245) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2016
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy light brown reddish color with an off white pinkish head. Aroma is apple cider, cherries, mild tartness. Better tartness in the flavor than a lot of the other New Glarus fruit beers, balancing out the sweetness. Sweet cherry apple tartness in the finish.
