Another nice Belgian beer hits the Ontario LCBO shelves, I've been spending alot of money recently on these releases...
Appearance: Quite a deep hue of red/brown. head and lacing reasonably minimal.
Smell: One of the most fruit forward beers I've experienced (that doesn't actually have fruit in it). It's quite remarkable how simple malt and yeast can create such intense fruit aromas. Main profile includes cherries, oak, apple, plum, pear, even a little banana.
Taste: Again its quite fruit forward, rather sweet. sourness hits at the back and sides of tongue and is followed by some sourness and funk/earth. I think it's a bit too fruity and sweet for my personal tastes, but still rather enjoyable. Finish is long of course and very fruity, but also slightly sour/vomity/funky.
Mouthfeel: Quite thick, sticky, which is sort of to style, but relegates this to the desert course I would think. Slightly dry on the edges as I mentioned but not enough to sustain balance and urge you to drink on.
Overall, this is tasty, but I feel as though I've had better beers in this style (Rodenbach GC, and perhaps Petrus?)... Nevertheless it's definitely a nice one to have around and perhaps a good one to introduce non-beer folk to.

Pours a deep, slightly opaque red with an off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Subtle carbonation. Aromatics are of sour cherry, discernible vinegar and faint wood. Sour cherry and light vinegar are present on the pallet. Slight oakiness and berries present. Complex, not too tart. Excellent starter beer if you're new to sours.
