3.82/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle - 8.5% ABV in the latest iteration. Very classic, sexy old-school presentation, I gotta say.

This beer pours a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, finely foamy, and fairly creamy ecru head, which leaves some stellar snow rime pattern lace around the glass as it slowly but surely subsides.

It smells of bready and doughy caramel malt, cherry cough drops, cherry cordial, and cherry liqueur. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, a bit of generic Belgian yeastiness, a fairly complex (yet at the same time paradoxically simple) cherry fruitiness (as in the aroma), and very little else.

The carbonation is fairly laid-back in its bored-seeming frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing getting in the way of a swell time at this particular juncture. It finishes off-dry, the malt and cherry essences still redolent in their lingering stances.

Overall - this definitely comes across as proclaimed, which is a strong malty Belgian ale, flavoured with some sort of cherry adjunct. Well-flavoured, and rather easy to put back, given the aforementioned 17-proof booze quotient. Worthy of checking out, for an obvious plethora of reasons.

From Optimus Beer. In Grimbergen glass. Playing VThree. Not exactly a cross between a dubbel and a kriek but more a cherries ale with a fuller body than usual and without the sourness of lambics

33cl bottle at home. Semi-hazy ruby pour with a thin white head. Nice cherry and honey smell. The taste is something else, though - too sweet, with notes of cherries, chemical additives and metal.

Poured in to a Corsendonk glass, deep red color and big pink head leaving nice lace down the glass. Very sweet cherry smell. Taste is extremely sweet, cherry , malt, molasses. Very unique taste, for some odd reason I like it because it reminds me of my favorite childhood candy :)
