750ml bottle poured into a Sante Adairius snifter glass. Enjoyed on 3.7.15, reviewed from Tasting Journal.


The beer pours a deep garnet color, burgundy with ruby hues, fairly opaque, lightly hazy with a finger of bone colored head, hardly any lace or head retention. The aroma has plenty of cherry, mild vinegar, dark stone fruits, definitely get the dubbel-esque yeast, oak, licorice and heavy grain. The flavors echo the nose, plenty of tart cherry, sour vinegar, chewy oak, very strong yeast, stone fruits, funk, a bit of chocolate, rich dark grains with licorice and some bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is a little abrasive, extremely carbonated, lively and zippy, coats well, sharp and dry finish.


Verdict: A nice beer from Sante Adairius, uniquely soured dubbel with a good cherry presence. Almost like a blend between a Dubbel and a Flanders Oud Bruin, perhaps a bit too sharp and acetic, but definitely enjoyable.
