Traded with justn. Split two ways and poured into large flute glass.

A- Deep red cherry color. Gorgeous off-white rocky head with nice retention. Lacing all the way down the flute looks great.

S- Cherries, cherry cough drops (Ludens), wheat and chocolate. No identifiable hops or barley, pure fruit beer.

T- Are there cherries actually in the bottle? Cherry medicine, with a bit of tartness, but not sour. Again, no hop or barley character. The taste really sticks between sips. Maybe a bit more dry and this would be incredible.

M- Much more body than I expected. Silky, with a tingle of carbonation.

D- For such a strong cherry flavor, extremely drinkable. I wish I didn't split the bottle.

Great fruit beer. Its nice to have a pure fruit beer and not a beer with fruit. A little drier and more carbonation and this would be perfect.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle. No date.

Reddish color with good clarity and a big head. The aroma is huge with cherries, more sweet than tart. The flavor follows with boatloads of fresh cherry flavor. It has a slight tartness and a higher sweetness without being overly sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth with a low carbonation.

This is a very good beer in most respects but just isn't my thing. The cherry flavor is amazing but I'd much prefer the additional depth and complexity of a true Belgian.
