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.

Bottle with friends. Nice carbonation and warm cherry color. Nose is of a big red wine full of fruit. Smoooth stuff, Rich, ripe fruit but without the sugary sweetness. Lingers on and on. Don't know if this could be a regular consumption, but I'd like to try!
