3.93/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Deep brown in color with red highlights, capped with a good amount of sand-colored foam. Retention are lacing are quite good. Cherry is prevalent on the nose but not overpowering. More of a sweet cherry-soda aroma. Otherwise, there's not much else going on, save for some musty, earthy notes and some bread crust. It's by no means offensive, but the aroma isn't anything special.

Things are more interesting on the palate. Cherry flavor is present but fairly well restrained. Rich, earthy maltiness is apparent initially, classic brown ale in character but no roast flavors. Then there's some light underlying tartness that livens things up a bit. More sweet than tart overall. The finish is dry and musty, a bit bland and uneventful. Mouthfeel earns this beer extra credit as the texture is exceedingly soft and smooth while being nicely carbonated.

While the nose hinted at an overly sweet fruit-forward beer, the flavor proved to be quite interesting. A good cherry Flemish ale that's enjoyable, if not earth-shattering.

Sweet cherries...everywhere.

This beer tastes almost liqueur-like to me.

Nose is cherries with a hint of prune juice...seriously. Taste is cherries, with a slight bit of sour on the end.

Very little hint of boozy flavor, considering the ABV on this one.

Good, but I prefer Three Philosophers if I want a hint of cherry. Definitely would stand up/pair well with a rich cheese or Black Forest Cake.

Don't drink it without some assertive tastes to oppose it.
