Sort of muddy orange and a thick voluminous off-white head.

Vinous, raisins, berries, plums, and brown sugar and a touch of wood. Well nuanced beer.

Warm and full of dark fruit flavors like that is expressed in the aroma, bready and spicy. Medium bodied.

Two snifters 1 small btl. Beautiful full head and great carbonation.
Deep amber rose color. Smell is amazing hints of sweet and funk. Taste is cherry earth and oaky funk. Some nice hints of sweet fruit. Bitter and dry mouth feel. Finish is more earth and dryness. A wonderful sour. Highly recommend.

11.6 ounce bottle poured into a Trappist Achel glass.

Despite a slow pour there was a huge head of thick and creamy khaki head. Hazy ruby brown body with thick sudsy lacing.
Aroma of tart cherries, spices, brown sugar and a bright grassiness. Like some kind of Christmas season bread.
Tart cherry juice, brown sugar, spicy cinnamon, dates, rose wine, bubblegum, old school cherry candies and a long malty finish. Outstanding.
While this is a hefty beer there's a great airy feel to it. Soft and gentle carbonation.
Overall a fun and amazing example of the BSDA style. Great looking with a spicy and sweet taste with an amazing carbonation. Highly recommended to all fans of the style and unique Belgian ales. This is the business.
