A very tasty Flemish red. I’d buy this more often if not for the high price tag which makes it a once-in-a-while treat. The body is deep red, with a small red-tinted head that settles down quickly; lacing is spotty and a little soapy looking. The aroma is tart and sour, funky and fruity, touches of oak and light vinegar, vaguely sweet. Cherry is the predominant fruit note in both the smell and taste. Good sourness, some puckering, this will most likely seem strong to novice sour-drinkers but fairly average in intensity to the more experienced. Again, the flavors are complex as the aroma, with a nice touch of woody oak tannins, restrained cider vinegar, tart cherries, sour apples, raspberries, red wine, brown sugar. Sweet and sour aspects are well balanced.
Body is well carbonated and medium to a little thin. Crisp and clean finishing, very refreshing, and an excellent accompaniment to food that needs a little cutting through; rich cheeses, spicy asian cuisines, etc.
