Ruby red pour into St. Bernardus abbey glass. Sweet and sour cherries. Slightly acidic with a woody character. I prefer the more winey and vinegary characteristics of the Grand Cru. However, this is much more quaffable.

Pours a nice clear dark brown with a tightly packed off-white head. Aroma of old wet carpet, very ripe fruits and some syrup. Interesting dry mouthful, flavours of tobacco, ripe fruits, nuts... very hard to describe. Medium length slightly sour finish.
