2005 bottle. Slightly cherry taste mixed with a kinda of sweet roast. body is good, a bit thick. Gives a dry aftertaste. Overall a really good brew, not sure if its worth the money though.

Superb. A Deep-brown/ruby color in the glass, pours almost still. Initial slight sweet cherry flavor which holds up well until the complicated sour/bitter finish with apparent alcohol. The lambic character doesnt dominate as much as I expected. A nice bottle to split with someone on a cold night.

Pour is a dark brown with some red in there when held up to the light. Aroma is of cherries and some malts. Flavor is a bit tart with notes of wood and malty earthyness. Finishes very bitter and the alcohol leaves a warming sensation as it goes down. Overall this this satisfies on a cold winter night but i was looking for more of a mustyness and a little less of the tartness.

poured a rich burgundy color with a thick head that dissipated quckly. little lacing. nose consisted of wood, roasted almonds, earthy undertones. palate consisted of raisens, ripe plums, and a hint of caramel. very nice job. i prefered to drink this around the 60-65 degree mark. nice for a relaxed drink during a cold winter night.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JAN 11, 2006
2004: Aroma of fresh, tart cherries, sweet malt, some banana, mild horseblanket. Appears a clear red-brown with a small yellow-cream colored head that lasts. Flavor is mildly bitter at the front, horseblanket in the middle, and with an alcoholic hotness in the finish that is a bit overpowering; also, the aftertaste is distinctly nutty and woodsy. Palate is medium-thick and chewy. Overall, this beer is quite a bit less than the sum of its parts. I would have liked it to be a bit sweeter with the alcohol masked a bit better.

Alcohol is very dominant and the cherry/fruity undertones don’t add to this abt at all. Not like any other abt 12 or belgian I’ve really had. Still really good.

Ruddy brown/red color with a fizzy head that dissapates within a min. or two. Aroma is sweet and woodsy with some cooked nuts and earthy fruit. flavor matches with a bit of chocolate and a dry finish. Very active carbonation in the mouth. drinkable beer overall but there are others of the style I would choose over it.

Pours a clear reddish brown, almost wine like color. Tan head is bubly, but fizzles out a little fast. Nose is slightly fruity with alcohol undertones. Flavor is fruity a little sour. Would be a nice compliment with light meals.
