11.2oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep ruby brown w/ a 1-finger head that subsides quickly to a thin film.

Aroma is tart, oaky, fruity. A little on the sweet side.

Taste is likewise equal parts lactic/acidic and sugary sweet. Bing, Rainier, and black cherries plus raspberries. As it warms, the sour and sweet elements converge nicely.

Mouthfeel is a tad prickly from the carbonation, but has an oaky dry quality too.

Overall, this one's a little on the fruity/sugary sweet side; I prefer Rodenbach or Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge. But, it's been about 3 years since I've had this one so I'm glad I decided to give it another go. Clearly a well crafted beer, just not my personal favorite representation of the style.
