Aroma is berries/fruit, malts and distinct yeast. The flavor is complex berries, Unibroue carbonation/effervescence, malts and a mix of spicy and mild/medium tart finish.

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle that is dated 06-22-2013. so It has some age. Sampled on November 22, 2015.

Reddish-amber pour with a quick lasting white head.

Loads of black current fruit in the aroma along with some yeast and spicy characters. But those are subdued.

The body is light to medium.

I love black current jelly/jam but I'm not sure if I love it in my beer. Still, this has a nice fruit aspect to it and a mild to low bitterness at the finish.

This is a classic - beautiful presentation, amazing fruity nose, and excellent Belgian style flavor.
