Appearance: Dark red and somewhat translucent. Discarded the yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Thin white head of tiny carbonation bubbles.

Aroma: Some tart red grape and a little dryness but sweet overall.

Taste: Tart black cherry skin up front with some signature pear/clove flavor from the lees. A few sips in the flavor rounds out a little more and sweetens. Clean Belgian candi syrup flavor adds a nice balance. Very low bitterness and only present after a bright finish. Lingering tartness and bitterness. The 8%ABV is quite well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with average carbonation for the style that keeps things light. Great drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Another enjoyable beer by Unibroue. Really glad to see how many of their beers are distributed here and I will be checking out the others in their line-up. The slightly tart flavor mixed with the sweet syrup is a great combination. Would I drink it again? Sure.
