4/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz. bottle poured into my DFH signature glass. Been wanting to try this one for a while, so here goes...
A- Pours a ruby red with hints of a paler orange color when held to the light. Not a whole lot of head, which is to be expected with the ABV, but a nice slick of foam settles on top.
S- Not much cherry or honey in the nose, but mostly a Belgian yeast aroma with requisite spiciness.
T- Well that's not what I expected. The Belgian yeast dominates the taste as well, with some residual fruitiness from the cherries. Wouldn't have known they were there if I didn't know going in. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.
M/D- Smooth mouthfeel with very well-hidden ABV makes this one really drinkable for the ABV.
Well, I admit this is not even close to what I expected. Which isn't to say this isn't good, it is quite tasty, just be careful if your expecting lots of fruity cherry flavors, as you may be disappointed.
