3.75/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from a 12 oz bottle to a tulip glass

A- Pours a deep reddish chestnut, crystal clear, visible carbonation, 1/2 finger inch white tight bubbled head.

S- Very sweet, cherries right up front, dry belgian yeast, maybe some oak? apples, raisins, slightly medicinal, but not in an offensive way at all, dry red wine alcohol blush on the end.

T- Syrupy cherry soda flavor, followed a bomb of sweetness, honey, cane sugar, apples, pears, dark fruits. Nice bready malt, that almost gets completely overwheamled by alcohol on the finish.

M- Full bodied, lightly carbonated, smooth, very dry.

O- Overall, i like this beer alot, though, some age does do it alot of good, just a tad boozy when fresh but it definitely settles down as its sipped on. Has a great bite, and ton of complexity, i always look forward to this beer come this time of year.
