Bottle to pint glass

A- pours a murky dark ruby brown color with a small off-white creamy head that leaves some lacing behind

S- tart and fruity cherry aroma up front with some medicinal notes, underlying musty Belgian yeast with some earthy aromas

T- tart cherries are showcased up front with a big fruity sweetness that kicks in med-palate. There's an underlying Belgian yeast character that is earthy and musty, leading to an herbal finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth, slightly tart finish

O- very refreshing brew that hides the alcohol brilliantly, big cherry notes take center stage

Sweet cherries...everywhere.

This beer tastes almost liqueur-like to me.

Nose is cherries with a hint of prune juice...seriously. Taste is cherries, with a slight bit of sour on the end.

Very little hint of boozy flavor, considering the ABV on this one.

Good, but I prefer Three Philosophers if I want a hint of cherry. Definitely would stand up/pair well with a rich cheese or Black Forest Cake.

Don't drink it without some assertive tastes to oppose it.
