The beer pours a murky mahogany brown with a thin blanketing of loose off-white head that fades into a thin cobweb of sticky lacing. The nose is tart cherries, muted acetone, bready caramel sweetness, and some plum. The taste is sweeter than expected, with notes of cherry and malt upfront and also lingering cherries in the finish. It has a medium body with masked booze, bready sweetness (sweet, but not syrupy), mild carbonation, and lingering semi-dry, tart cherries. This is a great beer - I prefer caractere rouge (esp for the price), but think this is more complex and delicious compared to the regular version.

Solid two finger creamy head with incredible lacing. Nut brown brew, very cloudy, completely opaque. Little lacing.

Very slight funky aroma, slightly sweet. A little bit of wine, and a lot of yeast.

Slightly sweet on the fore tongue, immediately giving way to a slightly sour tang. Soft malts are barely perceptible; ever so slight nuttiness, slight vanilla, and strong tannins. Extremely delicate, fairly complex, and very tasty. Just the barest hint of funk.

Noticeable but palatable carbonation. Medium to medium full feel, slightly slower drinking because of the slight sourness.

This is a beer for wine drinkers. Excellent and tasty, and an awesome experience .
