Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a darker amber orange that was nicely translucent. Head was very thin, slighty off white that left a small ring around the top. Aroma was sweet, slightly licorice hints. Taste was slightly sweet, hints of fruit, and a tad of spicy vanilla. Felt good in the mouth, was just slightly sticky so it coated well, and just a tad of carbonation. Pleasant to drink. Hid the ABV extremely well.

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.
