A bit weak, no complexity to enjoy but a decent sour fruit wine flavor to enjoy.

Review acoording to BJCP2008 (style 17C). Bottle 75cl - batch unknown. AROMA: complex malt and esters aroma with notes of caramel, black cherries, some chocolate and dry figs. a low sour aroma is present. APPEARANCE: dark reddish-brown and very clear. slightly tanned head with good retention. TASTE: malty flavour with notes of cherries, caramel, raisins and a sweet-and-sour profile more to the sweet side. low bitterness. PALATE: medium body. moderate carbonation. finishes sweet and tart. OVERALL: a very interesting belgian Brown ale with a nice cherry like profile.

Yellow coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Crisp, malty aroma, yeasty too. And some spice. Coriander and faint citrus, orange. Flavor starts sweet and has a nice hoppy note, faint metallic, finish moderate bitter. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a teku.

A: Medium dark brown. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, brownish head. Settles quickly leaving a foam ring and a smattering of bubbles. Beer ring lacing.

S: Roasted grains, maple syrup, and tea leaves. Some plum and raisin in there, too.

T: Light malt and plenty of plum, smoothed with maple syrup.

M: Thick and syrupy feel. Sweetness throughout. Lightly bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty solid. Decent head, fair lacing. Nose has some slightly roasted grain, but mostly overpowered by some candied sweetness and fruit. Mostly fruits and syrup in the flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

AGED FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR

Smell: toast and blackberry jam with butter and balsamic vinegar

Taste: blackberries with hints if balsamic with a coca cola finish...RIDICULOUS!!!!

The reviews are low from others, probably due to them not aging this beer. Age it! If I had this beer without the age, I'd probably be with the 2.9 score crowd. Once aged, however, you have to PAIR this with French toast and vanilla bean ice cream or baby back ribs and a lot of garlic mashed potatoes and bread sticks

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours deep reddish brown with an off-white head. No lace.

Tart cherry and caramel and some toasted malt in the nose. Oddly mild.

Mild tart cherry mingled with some caramel and toasted malt. Finishes mildly tart, mildly bitter with a butter note as the palate clears.

Decent medium body with good carbonation.

Out of balance and not enough bitter, tart, or transitional complexity. Just ok.
