Yeah, my 100th beer review! I must admit, when I had this beer for the first time at Le Roy D'Espagne on the Grande Place in Brussels I pretty much gulped it down. It was a hot day and the sweet taste and the pinkish almost cotton-candy like head of this beer were exactly what I needed at that moment. Before I left Brussels I vowed to buy a bottle to take home with me so I could review it properly. I purchased a 25cl bottle and tried to save it as long as I could. Here is my review:
Appeared a light opaque burgundy color atop which sat a frothy two finger head light and airy like cotton candy. Aromas of sweet cherry and wheat along with a light sourness. Tastes of sweet wine, cherries with a sour backbone and light malt. This beer was light in the mouth, not too sweet, not too dry either. For my money no other beer could quench my thirst better. However, I must admit it was much better on tap.
