11.2 oz. Bottle. Good fruity plumb and cherry wine aroma. Amber body and foam gusher after removing cap. Big off white head that settled to like a manhole cover on top of body. Flavor was yeasty bread and alcohol. Mild fruity flavors present, was looking for more fruit from what I got from aroma. Decent brew.

Pours a copper/brown, initially with about a half inch of cream colored foamm, but soon only a thin film. Spotty lacing as you sip from the glass. Nice fruity characteristics from Belgian yeast in the aroma.
The intitial taste of sweet whole grain bread blends with honey, vanilla, and cherry pit. Sweet in the finish with oak and fruit. A ssggestion of alcohol in the aftertaste becomes more prominent as it warms.
Medium body, very mild carbonation.
