Pours with a slightly red clear tint. Small head , no lacing.

Aroma of sharp and sweet cherries.

Taste of sweet malts , a sharp cherry and alcohol finish.

Mouthfeel is thick , good carbonation.

Overall a different tasting Belgian style that's pretty tasty.

Had on tap at Magnolias in Purcellville, VA

A - Dark red body with some brown hues in certain light. Slightly off-white 2-finger head subsides rather quickly to a nice lacing on top.

S - Sweet dark cherries with some alochol esthers. Cherry is not overwhelming and is masked some by some bready characters.

T&M - Slick mouthfeel from the alcohol. I taste dark malts with a sweet background and hint of cherries. I definitely wouldn't label this as a "cherry-flavored" beer. The cherries are there in the background but not too prominent, I like that. Bready notes at the end.

A sipper to be had all night.

Serving type: on-tap
