look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: copper/ruby with a light brown head. It is a beautiful beer in the light.

Smell: Initial smell of cherries and light hops. Exhaling with beer on the palate highlights the bready flavor.

Taste: Cherry is the initial player in this beer. Bready, yeasty, with a little bit of hops. Boozy, but not so much so that it gets in the way.

Mouthfeel: PERFECT carbonation. Silky below the carbonation.

Overall: This is a very balanced beer, though the lingering aftertaste is not as good as it could be.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: long neck bottle, poured into tulip glass

Appearance- reddish brown, coppery with fine tan foam which persists

Smell: sweet, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit (plum?cherry?)

Taste: malty up front with syrupy, fruit undertones (without being a fruity bee), just enough carbonation so as to leave the palate clean

Notes: good sipping beer, very good Belgian styled beer, the complex flavors make the high ABV barely noticeable

Serving type: bottle
