Pours a hazy very dark brown with two fingers thick of dense light brown foam. Sheet of delicate lace halfway down the glass. Smell: toasted brown bread, black cherries, toffee, mild earthiness. Taste: brown sugar, raisin toast, cola, cherry, not quite tart -- grain twang. Medium bodied, very fine, creamy carbonation.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

330ml bottle poured into a snifter

Appearance: Pours dark brown with 1+ finger of a tan head. Good retention and nice patchy lacing. Body is opaque.

Smell: Milk chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, light earthiness, with a mild but noticeable sour, almost lactic presence and a hint of plum.

Taste: Roasted malt, chocolate, red grape, mild funk, some faint hints of sour cherry and dark fruit. There's a lactic tartness right from the start that carries through to the finish, but it serves more as a background note and does not overwhelm the other flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a thick creamy mouthfeel and medium levels of soft carbonation. Very high drinkability.

Overall: I'm really digging this beer. It serves as a great example that a beer doesn't have to be over the top and in your face to be great. 3 Fonteinen's lambics are awesome and deserving of the praise they get, but this one is worth seeking out as well.
