Dark amber-ruby color. Dense haze blocks most light. Sweet cherry aroma. Fresh cherries hit the tongue right away. Mostly sweet and only mildly tart. Almost no hop character. Just the slightest hints of wood in the finish. Extremely well balanced. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky from the sugars. Sharp, snappy carbonation adds a dryness to the finish to contrast the fruit. I am not a huge fan of fruit beers but everything is so well put together in this one that I just can't put my glass down. This would be a great beer with just about any dessert, especially those made with chocolate or berries.

2011 vintage from bottle. Pours deep reddish brown with a fluffy white head that has a reddish hue to it. Smells very strongly of cherries with a hint of other dark fruits and earthiness in the background. Taste is very tart cherry, hard to describe as it is a strong taste of cherry but mellow at the same time, there is some darkness to the taste too in the end like plums and figs, but the cherry is the star here. The mouthfeel is way above average for a fruit beer, it is very smooth and creamy, not highly carbonated; a great aspect of this beer. At first I was worried that I picked up a 3 year old fruit beer, but this came out very well, the cherries toned down and some of the Oud Bruin came out, simply delicious!

Out of curiosity, I think corresponds to the proposal, but I saw no difference with a champagne cooler or cheaper... Appearance: inviting bottle with paper wrapper; in translucent red glass with little foam, but persistent. Aroma: here I remembered some beer, because the malt appears slightly. Taste: sweet, actually has cherry leaves an aftertaste of malt and sweet; said despite the 6% alcohol, did not find them.
