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.

Aroma has notes of slight sour cherry, toffee, chocolate, some other slightly odd fruity notes from the wheat with some roast as well. Taste is some sour cherry and slight pear notes, going into toffee, chocolate and coffee, finishing slightly sweet and also a bit bitter.

On tap at the brewery, sadly this was probably my least favorite of their offerings. Pours with a hazed deep brown with red highlights. Tan head atop. Aromas of cherry, acetaldehyde, sweet, cinnamon, floral, vanilla. Flavors are sticky sweet, juicy, spicy, pie cherry. Grainy and a bit musty. Mild carbonation with a strong lingering sweetness.
