A paper-wrapped, corked & caged 750 mL bottle; from the Ommegang general store. In a snifter.
A: The ale is dark, red colors standing out amongst the brown, let's call it a crimson color all things told. A white head, closer to off-white, is a wispy band.
S: The nose has sour cherries, soft with an aroma that could pass for apple butter. The tartnes isn't biting, just a pleasant aspect hanging over everything.
T: Cherries, sweet and sour upfront, set the tone for the entire beer. As the tartness ebbs, darker malts stand in, carrying the load. Oak adds flavor, vanilla sublety. Very low in alcohol, an added bonus after that last train wreck. The sweet bite of the sour cherries is divine, a well-made Belgian ale.
M: Well carbonated with the apple butter bite of sour cherries. A good pairing with flank steak tonight - delicious. An excellent offering from Liefmans.
