Poured from a bottle into a Duvel snifter. The pour is a deep, dark, clear mahogany with a ruby red tint. There is two fingers of khaki head that quickly dissipates. The nose is sour, a bit musty, and a little fruity. Sour cherries predominate and there are also notes of vanilla and blackberries.
Medium body and fairly firm feel. Sour cherry-like fruit notes abound on the front of the palate, but they are not overpowering. They soften and sweeten a bit and take on vanilla-like qualities, then sadly vanish. The finish is a bit weak and I don't get acidity or sweetness to linger. The only flavor that lingers is a faint, earthy, blackberry note. The beer is easy to drink and quite refreshing.
Overall, this is a good-tasting beer with some nice complexity, but there are other beers in this style with a bit more intensity and far more lasting flavor.
