look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into my Ommegang Tulip, and the result is a luscious, creamy finger of light brown head. The retention is great, as is the lacing. The body is red, with orange hues, almost like the flesh of a peach. Low clarity, with billowing clouds of fine bubbles rising to the top.

The nose is amazing, with sour cherries intermingling with chocolate and buttery toffee, caramel malt. Soft oak seems to waft about.

The taste mimics the nose, and is helped along by a very fitting mouthfeel. Medium-full bodied, with a good dose of carbonation.

Looking forward to trying this aged.
