This is one of my favorite stand-by beers; hence, I served myself one 12 oz bottle from my fridge!
12 oz bottle poured into an oversized red wine glass to capture the aroma.
A: Red-brown with blonde hues. The medium fluffy creamy-tan head fades to a thick film and lace.
S: The cherry with caramel malts comes up front, with the earthy, floral/fruity yeast aroma still steadfast.
T: Tart cherries with a caramel, toasted-bread sweetness. The alcohol is very subdued for such a strong beer.
M: This beer comes off big and frothy at first, with a crisp tart finish.
D: I could drink this all night, but I have a weakness for Belgians...
Those with the no-fruit-in-the-beer ideology are missing out on this one; the cherries add a perfect tart backbone to a great abbey-style ale. Want to show a beer newb how complex, delicate, and vast the flavors can be in beer? Add this one to the list.
