Aiming for de koninck but doing it the wrong way, with high temperature (maybe, I’m guessing), leading to overly estery, phenolic character.

Draft - Sweet cherry, perfume and some Belgian yeast. Cloudy reddish orange with. A decent white head. Malty, cherry and a long cherry finish. Odd, but I like it. Like a weak Flemish red.

Nose is rather sweet and super fruity. Very nice. Dark fruits, a touch of spice from the yeast, a little pepper. Enjoyable nose, almost teriyaki-y in a sense. Pours dark reddish brown, thinnish head, brown hues underneath. Flavors of sweet dark fruit, almost cherry like, some toast, a touch of salty notes, lightly spicy. Dry, sweet toasty finish. Really solid, enjoyable beer.

Dark amber with a dark nose of raisin and earthy nougat and some dusty caramel. Flavor is surprisingly light with some dark caramel and honey tones. Kinda indifferent.

Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Fruity aroma with light hops. Loved the flavor of this beer it was easy drinking fruity type beer. The hops are light.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some definite bread elements to it, and a bit of sourness to it. Taste is slightly toasty, and is slightly sweet. Not bad.

Orange-amber hue with silky head. Pleasant, distinctive belgian aroma, lightly prickly spices and crystal malting. Crisp belgian yeast combines with caramel malts. Light pepper spiciness. Nice complexity. A little warmth towards the end. Truly a fantastic, delightfully, understanded example of the style.
