   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2007
From the bottle this pours dark red/copper with a soft white head. Belgian dubbelesk, spicy, with a dark cherry sweetness to the finish. Roasted pecans and brown sugar in the flavor. The cherry flavor isn’t overwhelming, and the spiciness of the yeast esters compliments it well. A bit more sourness or acidity would give this more of a lambic edge and really improve it in my opinion. But on its own this is a solid beer.
