Corked and caged bottle dated 2017- I couldn't wait that long.
I've tried this beer a couple of times because I like it so much, but I'll catalogue my response this time.
I'm drinking it out of a celebrator glass because it's like a wide, stout flute or short pilsner glass.
Appearance is coke-bottle brown, maybe a little lighter. Reddish tints throughout. Lacing is really great- forming a crown sticking to the glass.
Smell is sticky, a little sweet, with tart notes and brown sugar coming through.
Taste is initially soft (including mouthfeel) rounding out to tart raspberry, rhubarb, and sweet tart candy. Mouthfeel follows with extra but not overwhelming carbonation. Superb thirst quencher. Finishes with the slightest iodine, but in a good way.
An amazing brew, one of the best, I hope the Liefmans facility stays afloat.

Purchased at the LCBO 750ml bottle for just under $9.00. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well pours with little head. Settles to a film and stays. Dark brown and cloudy.
S- Cherry and malt.
T- Sour cherry. Not quite ready yet. Needs time to blend. Raspberries will come through later when this thing calms down. Think that that will be a while though.
M- Tart and dry. Rather carbonated which is good for aging. Looking forward to having this one on a few years.
O- Pretty good. Way too young to drink. Will save the others for a few years down the line
This way too young fruit beer goes well with... Spicy chicken with green vegetables. Keeping it open for you to substitute in what you like as this beer will work well with many combinations.
