COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What do you get when you throw the wrong malt into a batch of Belgian Wheat? A happy mistake! That’s how Strange Brewer Tim Myers stumbled across this Tasting Room favorite. Rather than dump the batch, Tim decided to create the world’s first Belgian Wheat Stout. Gobs of Carafa III give this Belgian Wheat a delicious roastiness. Montmorency Tart Cherries give it a tart snap that will pucker you silly.

Growler from Strange. Pours dark with a hint of red in the head. Aroma of sour cherries. Very malt forward with a slightly medicinal and metallic cherry flavor on the back end. Interesting and very drinkable.

theisti (3211) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 25, 2013
Shaker pint draft at the brewery in Denver, Colorado. The pour is opaque black, with a 1.2 inch tan head. Nice lacing left behind int he glass. The aroma is cherry fruit, general vanilla sweetness, than a nice roast character. The taste is the nose, decent balance between the cherry sweetness (with a mild tartness) and the roast malt. The sweetness gets pretty close to cloying as the beer warms. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and the sweet cherry finish. The tartness is a bit more evident in the aftertaste. Decent.

I enjoyed this a bit more than the Kriek. The roast notes add a dimension that cuts some of the sweetness without losing the big pie aroma and spicing. Like having pie and a coffee.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 Draught as part of a flight, at the Strange tap room, on October 6, 2012
Marked on the board with 5.2% ABV and 46 IBU.
Very dark brown to black color, light brown head. Sweet, roasted taste. Light sour aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Some roasted aftertaste too. Sweet and light roasted scent. Not really for me this one.

Tap at United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Poured a deep brown with a khaki head. Somewhat muted aroma with smells of light roast, biscuit, coffee, and expresso. Taste is sour cherry, dark fruits, roast and coffee. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty boring stout.
