A 22 fl. oz. bomber, 2016 vintage. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy ruby red colour with an almost two finger whitish pink head that had pretty good retention and left some nice curtain lacing.

Aroma: Lots of cherry, lifesaver cherry hard candy with perhaps a touch of oak.

Taste: Sweet and sour cherry, lightly candied, oak, but flavours overall were a bit soft.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.

Overall: Aromas were great, but flavours while good, were a little too soft on the palate for me. Also, not a lot of funk in the aroma or flavours, which is not a problem for me, but just a comment since I was expecting some.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice purple color. Nose is raspberry, tea, and a bit sour. Taste is stone, bread, cherry syrup. A bit light and watery, which was a surprise. Not nearly as sour as I had hoped. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, this is a pretty drinkable beer, but nothing spectacular.

2016 vintage from a bottle stored properly-pours a beautiful deep, clear ruby red color. Taste is dark cherry with a hint of oak along with a nice belgian sweetness. Very smooth and easy to drink. Only knock is a very thin, watery mouthfeel.

Great deep cherry color with light pinkish-white head. Big tart cherry aromas and a lot of wine like characteristics. Taste is nicely tart with the cherries, malt coming together nicely with a very light vinegary taste. Good bakancey and a tannic, tart finish. Nicely done !
