750 ml bottle produced in March 2013. Pours reddish brown, substantial toffee head. My nose detects tart cherry, wood and loads of fruity esters. Taste is herbal, fruity, muted tartness, wine aftertaste. Super stealthy abv.

A very cherry aroma and taste. Pours fairly dark with a small head. Gets a little better with every taste.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 12 oz Bottle. Pours deep brown with reddish hue. Almost burgundy. Solid drinker, but yeast and booze a bit dominant. Definitely interesting. Lambic adds distinct sour/ cherry note to brew which works with the banana/clove/spice/ yeasty belgian notes. Definite sweetness in there- toffee, malts and raisins. Tempered by sour cherry and hops. Smooth mouthfeel- not overly carbonated. Nice to sip on. One is plenty. Somewhat boozy.

Definitely a huge Belgian. I've heard the hype before trying it. Good, but not a game changer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Appealing aroma of malt and grass. Clear, very dark brown with a solid tan head cover, wide streaks of lace. Caramel malt and alcohol, both arriving together for a huge taste that moves with assertiveness through a palate where the alcohol is more than enough to balance. A solid sipping ale, needs time to be savored.

JorgeLee (1345) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Deep burgundy colour, good carbonation, white foam. Interesting aroma, yeast, spicy hop, some booze, hint of cherries. But to be honest the taste is a bit disappointing. Overly boozy. Muddled yeast. Cherries are there, not overpowering, but there is something a bit cloying in there. Can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but there’s just some lightness of touch and balance missing which makes it rather hard work.
