A dark brown beer with a settling head, which disappears after a while. No head is visible.

The smell is malty with a sweet and port-like sensation. The beer has a tart smell that also has some cherry and berries in the smell. LIght dark malts which are not burned or roasted.

The taste is sweet with the port taste also present. The berries and tartness remind me of lacto or brett? The beer is sweet, but light in a way, it is drinkable, and not cloying at one point. The first sip I suspected artificial sweeteners but this beer is the best beer from this brewery.

750 mL champagne top served at just under cellar temp, 8C, in a tulip with etching.

Very dark ruby-amber pour that is almost black with a nice sedated head that is super find and tops out at about 3 finger with a careful pour. Gentile carbonation maintains head at a dense and resilient 1cm.

Nose of boozy caramel and a touch of toffee, sugary cooked dark fruits: plum and raisin.; and a slight citrus note to elevate it from just deep and dark.

Smooth cooked sugars dominate a base of sweated plums and mulled pears, some dried figs and raisins. Lemon peel and alcohol give some levity and brightness to it all.

Mouth feel medium-heavy bodied and is smooth on the initial taste but quickly carbonates and combines with the citrus and alcohol (broken record i know, but the counter balance is persistent) before it comes to a juicy peak and medium dry finish.

Over all a nice Cuvee/cru, hits all the right notes but lacks a little body and that thick heavy malt base I expect. It looks fine but I want the fluffy wafting head a belgian should always have. Nose is balanced and is in line with the taste and body, but a bit boozy. As it warms the taste does deepen but at the expense of alcohol domination, which I normally like but here it's a little much.
some more residual sugars would have helped a lot, the finish is just too much on the dry side for a dark, fruity belgian.
