UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Color is a reddish pink. It is opaque. Aroma is yeasy with an abundances of cherry. Slight spice in the flavor. Mouth feel is like champaign, very bubbly. Finish is most tart, but accompanied with a fair amount of sweetness. My favorite of the new beers I enjoyed with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled: Reddish coloured. Light cloudy. Huge white head with a red gleam. Sweets, fruit (cherry), earthnotes and a great sourness in the aroma. Very balanced flavour. Earth, cherry, sharp acidic sourness, light background sweetness. Its all there for you to enjoy. Is cleansing, dry and smooth in the end. A really top class beer.
Alas I got to this beer. I’ve brought it home from Belgium after buying it at Delirium Cafe for 25€. It was worth every penny and I would buy it again if possible.
