look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Slow start as its fairly ordinary looking, no head, no lace, no distinguishing feature beyond being a very handsome ruby colour.

After that it's all about the cherries. Great cherry nose, great cherry taste. Spicy, fruity, malty - lots of good things happening. Comes across a bit like a liqueur without being quite as boozy or sweet. Sweetness nicely offset by a hint of sourness. Interesting and enjoyable to drink. Big alcohol can sneak up on you.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a wine glass.

A: Medium brown. No real head. No lacing.

S: Cherry cobbler.

T: Lightly sweet and lightly sour balance of cherry.

M: Syrupy body, lightly sour and bitter finish.

D: Savor.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Not much to look at, but heavy bouquet of cherry. Like it smells... sweet and sour cherry. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Dark reddish-brown, almost matches color of bottle. Served slightly chilled---and then warmed as held glass in two hands. Very nice spicy taste, like nutmeg/ allspice. Almost syrupy at first, thinner as it warms. Very tobacco-like nose when at room temp. Just enough cherry to know it's there without being too sweet/fruity. I would probably love it when hot. At a public tasting and servers did not (as I didn't) know it is best served warm.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

750ml bottle. Best before 12/31/2025. Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Reddish brown in color. Pours completely still with zero head or visible carbonation. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a glass of iced tea.

Smell: Maraschino cherries, mint, menthol, dark fruit. Smells a bit like a cherry cough drop.

Taste: Medicinal cherry dominates the palate. Also getting some cinnamon and a slight breadiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slick oily mouthfeel. Very slight twinge of carbonation but otherwise nearly flat.

Overall: Not a fan of this one. The lack of carbonation was a problem, but I can chalk that up to personal preference. The main issue I had was the medicinal artificial cherry notes that dominated both the smell and palate. It's not terrible, but I wouldn't get it again.

First beer of 2013! Didn't read the label and was surprised when I popped the cork that there wasn't much of a *POP*. Poured the beer into a small glass and noticed there is very, very minimal carbonation, which at first I thought was a mistake. Brunt amber color with garnet hues. Again, zero bubbles sitting on top of this beer. I finally read the label and felt better that it was like this. Can't say it is very attractive for a beer, but won't knock it since that was intentional.

Smell is good! Sour cherries in the aroma, plus a small amount of vinegar, which helps add a layer of complexity. Reminded me of the Flemish Red from Monks Cafe. Deep and rich notes of cherry dominate though and it works for this beer.

Taste has notes of chocolate and cherry, and a little bit of acetic acid. Alcohol is very well hidden, and it drinks almost like a soda (of course without the carbonation).

Mouthfeel is of course on the "flat" side, but again, that is intentional so I can't say that wasn't called for. However, I think I would have given a higher rating for something with a little bubbly.

"Quelque Chose" certainly lives up to the name. I would say that it is a beer worth trying. Like the first time I ever tasted Lindeman's Framboise, this beer will make you think about what does it mean to have a beer? They call for this to be poured on the rocks, OR served warm. This is one interesting beer, with some good flavor and a beautiful aroma. My friends that I split the bottle with REALLY enjoyed it and wanted to find more of it...so that's a good sign!

My girlfriend picked this beer up because the label looked cool. As soon as I read the description I knew it wasn't a beer that I would usually enjoy, but I try to make an effort to be open minded. When I first opened the cold bottle I first thought was uh-oh because there was no pop whatsoever. I poured two glasses and there was no carbonation and only a few bubbles coming up. I thought the beer had to be bad, and upon initial tasting this was my girlfriends conclusion as well. While the beer has no carbonation it wasn't completely off. It was a clear brown color and smelled sweet like cherry candy. The taste was similar - very sweet, lots of cherry, and kind of like candy. There is definitely a syrupy feel and taste. I did not enjoy it. What followed was a discussion as to whether or not we could ethically pour the bottle down the drain. That's when I did a little research and discovered that the beer was not supposed to be heavily carbonated. Surprised, we decided to re-cork the bottle and save it for mulling, which never ended up happening. Overall, this reminds me more of a sweet wine than a beer. Hell, it reminds me more of cough syrup than beer. Not for me.
On a side note, I used a cup of this beer in some chile. The chile was great, but I couldn't taste any of the beer - at least it wasn't wasted.

Bottle from 2010
Served on the rocks, pours a still reddish brown with a few stray bubbles coming out of the bottle. This smells a little like mulled cherry. There's a syrupy cherry sweetness in the aroma that is countered with spices like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor follows the aroma to a tee. This is quite sweet and syrupy with a mulled cherry flavor to it. The spices provide minimal balance to the sweetness that is Quelque Chose. Medium to thick body with a sweet syrupy mouthfeel. Interesting "beer" but honestly a little too sweet for my tastes. Some bubbles would have really help in my opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

With fruit beers, I just never know what to expect, and this fits the bill. It's a brownish liquid, lightened by some red. It looks like dark, flavored tea. There is almost no head. A few bubbles early on, then nothing.

Very cherry in the nose with clear additions of cinnamon and clove. Smells like wassail or some other warm weather cider-type drink.

The taste isn't like most other beers. The cherries are obvious from beginning to end, and while the cinnamon and clove are supporting cast members, they make an appearance toward the end of the show. A little bit of alcohol in the finish. No discernable hop presence.

It's very sweet and slightly tart. No carbonation. Feels a bit heavy, wine-like. Subtle spices. Warming in the end with a grainy, medicinal feel.

One of the stranger 'beers' I've had. Not sure I'd call it a beer. Once you get past the strange flavor and feel, it kind of grows on you. Definitely a sipper. Middle of the road for Unibroue.

The bottle says to try it on the rocks and mulled so that's what we did.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle, best before Dec. 17, 2024 (code M17091619, bottled Dec. 17, 2009) and split with my wife.

Appearance: (COLD)/(HOT) - Zero head with the color a cross between sangria and iced tea.

Smell: (COLD) - Wood and cherries mostly. (HOT) - Fire roasted cherries, aroma stronger and comforting.

Taste: (COLD) - Sweetish-tart cherries, bit of wood, cherry pits and the finish is tangy. Real, authentic cherries. (HOT) - Mulled cherries, cork, not as good as cold.

Mouthfeel: (COLD) - Almost drinks like juice as it's so drinkable. (HOT) - Really reaches everywhere.

Overall: (COLD) wins as i like the taste and mouthfeel better that way though the aroma is better (HOT). Different for sure and not your usual beer.

Bottle (2011)

Holiday Wine Cellar
Escondido, CA

(Aged for 1 year)

A murky, burnt crimson with what appears to be zero carbonation. No head; this pours more like juice than any typical beer. Very little stick down the glass. Disappointing.

Cherry aroma, though it comes off as somewhat medicinal, like a cough syrup. There's some mild spice and other non-fruit sweetness as well.

The flavor is nicer than the aroma, with sweet cherry, a tiny bit of spice, caramel, and some alcohol.

Thin to medium bodied with no carbonation.

I didn't know this was often served warm. If I ever acquire another bottle, I'll serve it heated.

Review from 3/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark red amber, absolutely no carbonation. Cherry aroma, a bit sour. Strong cherry with moderate sour start, cinnamon cherry middle and finish. Medium bodied with some creaminess. I like this, whatever it is. Need to try it warmed, as recommended. Interesting.

A: The beer is hazy brownish amber in color. It poured with just a few bubbles on the surface that quickly faded away, leaving only a thin ring around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of cherries in the nose along with some hints of spices.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is dominated by flavors of cherries that have some sweetness and a little tartness. Hints of spices are noticeable in the finish; these become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer reminds me a bit like spiced apple cider—except that it’s made with cherries—the type of drink that you might have served hot outdoors at a winter market. It might be a bit sweet but it is definitely a sipping beer.

Best by 2025 (Served at refrigerator temperature)

A: Pours a lightly hazy ruby to garnet red in color with no visible carbonation. The beer has a very small patch of large soapy bubbles that quickly reduces to a very thin ring around the majority of the edges of the glass. No lacing is observed.

S: Strong aromas of cherries with lighter notes of spices (similar to the mulling spices used with wine in the winter). The cherry has a very natural fruit aroma.

T: The flavor is pretty sweet and the cherry tastes quite natural. The cherry flavor is very strong with moderate notes of mulling spices.

M: On the lighter side of heavy bodied with minimal amounts of carbonation.

O: Heavier body and sweetness make this beer not too easy to drink - a slow sipping beer at that. Enjoyable. I would be interested in trying this beer warmed in the winter as well.

Sample: 1 bottle 2009

*Served both at room temperature and warm

A: Dark ruby red in color, pours with no head and no internal carbonation (as to be expected), slightly hazy throughout

S: Very complex nose, heavy dried fruit, cherry and currant are definitely present, elements of vanilla, chocolate, and even licorice are present, some herbal characteristics as well, quite fragrant

T: Much akin to the nose, but definitely more strong in terms of the cherry and dried fruit flavor, vanilla is certainly present, slight herbal notes, raisins, light chocolate, very flavorful

M: Incredibly smooth and easy to drink (especially given the lack of carbonation), well balanced sweet and sour elements, light dried fruit aftertaste, not lingering, drying, or overpowering

O: A great example of the style, mixed opinion about the lack of carbonation, smooth, complex, and fragrant, worth trying, definitely nicer with a little age

Appearance: dark amber body with no head, seriously!

Smell: ripe cherries, extremely potent.

Taste: if you could make wine out of cherries this would be it. It's sweet, but fruit sweet.

Mouth: lightest carbonation, I am not a big fan of it. cant really complain feels more like merlot than beer.

Overall: Not bad but wouldn't buy again not exactly what used expecting, Salud!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter. Back label says best before 31-12-2025...forgive me, but I believe that's a gross overestimation of the beer's aging ability considering it's only 8%. By the way, the cork barely popped at all when I opened it.

A- From a heavy pour comes no head at all but just a little bit of foam around the edge of the glass as well as a small amount on the surface. The beer itself is a dark ruby brown color and presents very little lacing.

S- I could smell the cherries as soon as I popped the cork and, upon further inspection, notice that it's not your usual kriek-type cherry smell. It's very dark, spicy and almost buttery. Very rich and complex. Heavy notes of clove.

T- I don't know how it manages to capture the taste of pumpkin pie, apple pie and cherry pie all at the same time, but it does. Lots of notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Caramel crab apple...you heard me.

M- Watery and light but still has some presence due to the spice and fruit. Low carbonation.

O- This beer may not look or feel like much, but it tastes fantastic for those with a sweet tooth. A perfect dessert beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip, bottled 12/17/2009. Pours hazy red orange color with hardly any head at all. Cork did not even pop off this one. The thin head does stick around for a majority of the glass. Aromas of big cherry juice, tart cherries, raspberry, herbal, light cinnamon, yeast spices, and a touch of vinegar. Awesome and well balanced aromas for a fruit beer, with a fair amount of complexity. Taste if big cherry juice, tart cherry, light vinegar, spices, grape, and a bit of oak. Lingering notes of cherries, spiciness, oak, and grape on the finish for a bit. Fantastic balance of flavors despite the sweetness of this beer; and it is not cloying at all. Low carbonation and medium-full body; with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is not a bad thing at all for this type of beer. Alcohol is well hidden at 8% with only a slight warming on the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer; with great flavor balance and no cloying sweetness. I really need to try this hot like is suggested.

Received a 1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. bottle in a trade w/ mdvatab. Poured from the Caged/Corked bottle w/ Gold writing on the front w/ labels of 3 cherries & "50% dark ale, 50% brown ale brewed with Cherries" into my 0.3L La Fin Du Monde Tulip Glass (appropriate for the drink!). Has Best before 31-12-2025 (WOW) on the back of the bottle below their Haiku.

Aroma- Deep cherry notes, almost like a lambic. Light amount of acidity and extremely sweet on the nose. Fruity and malty would be the best way to state this aroma.

Appearance- Pours no head at all... Has a deep brown colored body with the darkest ruby red highlights. Leaves only a few suds behind.

Flavor- A nice blend of cherries and raspberries hit the mouth first. Then malts pick up but definitely too light for a brown ale to come through... No bitterness or hop in here.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium bodied, Light- Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and the lightest tart finish on the palate. Nice fruit finish as well.

Overall Impression- While I was very interested in finding this one, it seemed like it was in my glass twice and was gone quicker than any other beer... Almost a Cherry Lambic feel in many of the categories but didn't have enough carbonation. I will be trying to find another one to age (since it says best before 2025!). Thanks for the grab Mark!

A: poured into a goblet at Amsterdam in SF. It pours a cherry red with a slightly darkened tint - maybe a little burgundy. It is clear with no head and no lacing. I did let the bottle sit out to warm a bit before drinking it. There are a couple of bubbles resting on the sides of the glass. At the bottom of the bottle there was sediment that clouded up the last of the beer. It is a very pretty beer.

S: It has a bit of a interesting smell. I almost get a holiday candy smell - not quite cinnamon, not quite peppermint, but something. There are the cherry notes in there, like overripe maraschino cherries and cherry liquor. There is also slight medicinal quality to the smell. Spice.

T: The flavors are different that what I expected, from the smells I got from the nose. It is still very good. I get more spice in the flavors, a holiday allspice and almost a pumpkin spice flavor. The spice takes over more of the cherry notes. The cherry lies underneath the spice, sweet but not overbearing. It's nicely balanced between the sweet notes and a slightly tart cherry flavor. I was hoping for more of a tart kick, but maybe I let is warm a bit too much. I will have to try this again at a colder tempeture. It is still very tasty though.

M: The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. There was no carbonation. It has a dry finish.

O: It is very nice overall. Super drinkable - it's like alcoholic juice! I only got a hint of the 8% ABV in there. It was a good one to split. I shared a 750ml, and I can see the spice getting a little heavy if I drank the whole bottle myself. I could see this one being very tasty served hot as well! Overall a very tasty beer.

Bottle. Opens with hardly even a mouse fart of a "pop". Pours a flat, clear dark ruby reddish color. The lack of carbonation I am a little on the fence about, I don’t mind flat beers but a do prefer a slight carb at least to help the flavors pop. The aroma is nice with a mix of dark cherries and almost like a cola note. The taste is nice with a cherry forward note that carries through the whole time. A sipper for sure but the 8% really doesn’t show that much. Overall, pretty happy with this.

smells like sour cherries and brown ale. slight vinegar and alcohol.

sweet, delicious and a touch sour. slight hop bitterness.

mouthfeel is super thin without any carbonation at all, also a light syrupy feel to it.

this beer is tasty but it just doesn't fit into any style. not quite a sour, not quite a fruit beer, not even a brown ale. I'm seriously confused, but not disappointed.

This is a Pretty bizarre beer. On the back it recommends to try it on ice, or hot so I will try it both ways, and also a little cooler than room temperature.

On ice:
Poured to a small Karmeliet tulip glass with two cubes of ice.
Light brownish red, the ice makes it a little lighter. No head.
The nose at this cold temperature is predictably pretty weak, I get cherry juice and that's it.
Very still, this is like drinking "grown up" juicie juice, the taste is cherry juice with a minuscule amount of bitterness that I'd attribute to the alcohol. However strange, it is very refreshing. The mouth feel is very light and watery, a wildly clean finish.

Slightly below room temperature:
Pours a rich ruby redish brown. No head, no lacing.
Aroma is almost like grenadine,very sweet, lots of syrupy cherry aromas with a bizarre barbaque suase like tang.
Again, cherry juice. There is a little bit of tartness to the finish like that of sour cherry chased by a tiny bit of alcohol.
The mouth feel is pretty open with a slightly syrupy feel. It goes down pretty smooth, no carbonation.

Heated in a sauce pan until lightly steaming:
Same appearance as room temp.
The nose is pretty exciting for this one. Very sweet, intence burning alcohol aromas like fusel oil, I assume this is due to the alcohol evaporating, a tinge of caramel, vanilla, candied fruit.
Nice taste, big cherry flavors, burnt brown sugar and hot alcohol similar to that of a big barleywine needing a long timeout in the cellar. Still has a pretty syrupy flavor.
Mouthfeel is still pretty light but with a way more syrupy and smooth feel than at the other temperatures. It is even more still than before due to the heating. There is defiantly more alcohol burn in the finish. After swallowing, inhaling air almost gives you the same cooling sensation as after having a mint, or after rinsing with mouth wash.

Overall:
This beer is very different at each recommended temperature. The cherry really blasted thru at each temperature. What surprised me was how well the 9% ABV was masked until heated.
My favorite temprature for this guy was warm. I doubt I will ever drink this again simply chilled. However, I may buy this and enjoy it on ice in the summer, or hot on a cold winter day.
This was a fun review and I'd advise anyone to try it at each temperature.
