On tap at Belgian Comes to West Chester (Iron Hill). Firkin, brewed in 2007.

This is by far the best Harpoon beer I remember having!

Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with almost no head. Aromas of wood, bretty, funky, and musty. Tastes of wood, brett, funky, vanilla, and cherries. Nice light to medium tart and sour finish. Of the 3 beers I had there, this one was by far the standout!

Belgium Comes to West Chester...
Appears a hazy amber with a small, off-white head that slowly fades into a mild cap. Scatterd bits of lacings are left around the glass.
Smell is of tart cherries, brown sugar, vanilla, funk, and oak.
Taste is of the mentioned tart complexities.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with tart cherries, barnyard funk and notes of vanilla, and light caramel lingering.
