Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a fizzy cream head that dissipates somewhat quickly.
Slightly tart cherries, pear, and sweet caramel malt form the initial aroma, with Belgian yeast character adding complexity.
Sweet caramel lies at the base of this beer, more candy-like than malty. Buttery toffee segues into lightly sour cherry notes, which dry somewhat quickly in the finish. Somewhat of a vinous character comes to mind. Medicinal phenols emerge.
Body is moderate, with high carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Very different brew. The phenols are somewhat offputting, and the buttery toffee caramel base dominates. The high carbonation robs the mouth of the flavor too early.
