Lovely mahogany-hued ale with cherry lambic added, poured into a Duvel tulip.
Subtle, pleasant cherry aroma, with vanilla-oak undertones. Underlying presence of raisins and dates as well, which bouquet nicely as it warms.
I was afraid the cherry lambic would overwhelm but it doesnt. This is a mostly malty ale with a fruity finish, though all in all, theres nothing overly distinctive that I can say about the taste. In fact, as the label states, the sweet caramel malt and dark cherries do in fact confound my tongue just not in the best way.
Smooth mouthfeel is achieved with a mild carbonation balanced with a nice creaminess.
Glad I had a chance to sample it. I might like to try this with a nice fruit tart or truffle some other time.
