look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a beautiful reddish-brown with little head. The smell is reminiscent of pure cranberry juice. Tart cherries and tannins dominate the palate with a medium body. It's akin to a dry Oud Bruin. It's a sipper for sure, meant to be savored not sessioned.

I have to admit, while I really like this beer, I can find similar Belgian offerings cheaper and more easily. It's worth drinking but it's not worth what you have to pay or go through to obtain.
