Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a thin, smooth coating of light brown foam. Aromas of dates, leather, raisin, and peat. Good earthy and sweet nose. Flavors are rich and layered, with a mocha coffee backbone giving rise to some slightly sour currant and wine-like characteristics. Tangy, old world fruit characters highlight the brew, such as plum, fig, and raisin. The light body and carbonation keep the beer crisp, and avoid the cloying mouthfeel. The aftertaste is a dark, rich sweetness with a subtle sour tang. Clean, slightly astringent finish that gives a touch of pucker in mouth. Good, easy to drink beer. This would make the perfect gateway beer for people venturing into the world of Flanders/sours.

330ml bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance is a slightly hazy dark brown with a one finger off-white head.
Smells of vinegar and cherries along with a little bit of wood.
Flavors of wood and cherry dominate with vinegar slightly behind. There is a tiny bit of barnyard although not too much. A light tartness comes forward towards the finish.
Overall this is a decent beer. My one complaint is all the flavors are too short lived. Nothing really lingers.

Pours a murky amber brown, great lacing:
Cherry candy on the nose, toasted bread.
Cherry pie, bread crust. Sweet at the start, but the breadiness and light tart cherries come through to balance things out quite nicely.
Soft and fluffy mouth, lighter side of medium bodied.
High drinkability. I'd have another.
