Pours a black cherry red from this bottled on February 19th 2013 black wrapped caged and corked bottle.

Big sweet cherry smell maybe some wheat.

All cherries in the taste. 99% sweet, 1% tart.

Lovely Belgian fruit beer, which I have a definite bias for. Take that into account.

Pours with a big cherry nose with just a touch of tartness. Pours brilliant cherry color like a cherry wine under a ¼” pink tinted foam cap. Big cherry palate leaning towards the sweet side but just enough tartness to keep it from being cloying or falling into the soda pop category. Light, effervescent, refreshing, easy to drink but a little too sweet for my tastes.
