Bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is sour with a fair amount of fruitiness to it and a slight bit of booze. Interestingly, I got got a quick whiff of candied sugar. Taste is strong and slightly sour with some whiskey to it, actually. Interesting, but not my style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
200 ml from a bottle thanks to a guy at BeerTemple. Clear deep amber pour with bubbly off white head. Aroma is really malty, nice mix of Alesmith malt :fruits, molasses, raisins and classic Belgian spicy notes, cinnamon, coriander, black pepper. Taste is sweet, malty, but with little residual sweetness. Palate is med-full bodied with good carbonation. Really easy drinking. Lives up to the Alesmith reputation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear reddish brown with a slight head that dissipates quickly, no lacing, this beer is not about the appearance. Wonderful aroma of red grapes, honey, vanilla, slight earthy notes. This is a very unique beer, I haven’t had anything like this before, almost like an Oud Bruin. Medium sweet, slightly sour, very little bitterness, and some spicy, fruity aspects, extremely clean finish. Even has kind of a red raspberry dimension to it, very interesting. I would get this again, very satisfying.
