Bottled on 9-30-2011 (about 1.5 years old). Poured into a tulip glass.

Not a pretty beer, but refreshing. Reminds me in some ways of a dry wine cooler. Nothing more than an average Flanders style beer. One that I would be willing to drink again if my choices were limited. You might want to give it a try.

A - Very well carbonated. Pours a cloudy dark brown/amber with a two-finger rocky head, which quickly disipates. Did not see any sediment. Minimal lacing.

S - Sour cherry, slight sweetness.

T - A citric tartness. No latic sour, rather dry, pale maltiness.

MF - Sharp, fizzy, dry.

This dark brown beer has a poorly retained neck (the style expects more retention). The aroma brings cherries, peppery tones, and molasses - and wood-like tones. The malt, both in aroma and taste, should be more pronounced, here expressed as toffee. The aroma expressed well the acidity, and, despite the aging of 2.5 years, no vinegar notes. The cheeriness is expressed both in aroma and taste, and is very pleasant. The body is medium, super carbonated, oily, and smooth. The end is acid, pleasant, but brief.
