Had this at a Belgian Beer Dinner at the Cloverleaf Tavern in Caldwell, NJ. It was part of the dessert course, paired with a strawberry crisp. The pairing was perfect!

The beer was coppery in color and even right off of the pour there wasn't much of a head, only a slightly frothy ring.

The smell made me smile and supplied that Brett mustiness that I love. A hint of sour cherry comes through along with the grains of the malts. And the taste follows the smell, but the sense of Morello cherries comes through a little stronger, but not not in the forefront. The front is Brett funk and a drying sour that leaves you nice and puckered.

Think Rodenbach, just not as dry.
