DAA; Bottle 75 cl., from Vinmonopolet. Pours small, clear cobber with a fading creamy, bobble tanish head. Nose is moderate to heavy, funky sour, moderate cherries, caramel and spice. Taste is heavy to medium sweet and bitter with a lasting sweet berries, almondy finish. Body is medium to full, texture is is oily to creamy, carbonation is soft. I love cherries and this" brew remarkably drinkable" indeed.

Yikes. This tastes like the monstrous love child between Dr. Pepper and Robitussin. Seriously. This almost seems like the effort that would be made by a mediocre American craft-brewery in trying to craft this difficult style; so it is rather shocking that this is Belgian offering. This is not the most horrible beer I have ever tasted, but I just can’t enjoy this.

330ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours a clear reddish amber read forming a small light rose head with medium retention and few lacings left. Sweet fruity node. Strong notes of cherry and caramel malts. Oak. Light vinegar notes. Slightly sweet upfront. Very fruity. Again, strong notes of cherry and caramel malts. Hints of oak. Apple vinegar. Slightly sour. Quite sweet. Maybe too sweet to a serious beer. Metallic hints. Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Strong cheery aftertaste. Sweet. Good drinkability. Not bad but maybe too sweet for a Petrus.

Very cherry. Syrupy sweet craziness. Kind of a niche flavor. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Nice logo on the bottle mentioning beer as "the key to heaven" :-)
