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.

Wow - what a pleasant surprise and a wonderful mistake! Haven’t enjoyed a beer this much in a while. Pours black with deep brown highlights. Pie cherry and pie crust nose. Taste follows nose with just hints of baking spice and a good dose of chocolate. Great balance with a nice tartness from the cherry.

[draft] Dark, inky brown pour. A thin head even for a stout - more so given wheat blend. Really surprising aroma - burnt pie crust notes, tart cherry, and roasty malt. Tastes of tart cherry and dark chocolate. Nice mouthfeel with some roundness. Best beer I had at the tasting room that day, and worth a visit to try.

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.

On tap at Strange brewing poured a nearly opaque dark brown with a lasting brown head. Aromas of carmel, pie cherries, cocoa, light roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finmish. Flavors of pie cherries, cocoa, carmel and roasted malt with a smooth dry lingering roasty chery finish.

Sampled at Denver Winter Brewfest 2011. Appearance was odd. Dark brown, very hazy, with clowdy opaque edges, and no head. Not appetizing. Gracefully, it smells better than it looks. Chocolate stoutiness mixed with Belgian fruity yeastiness and a whiff of cherry pie. Slightly sour aroma at the end. Flavor is right-freaking-on! Cherries hit first with some cocoa and mild hop bitterness bringing up the rear. Slightly sour, but in a good, sweet cherry-like way. The sooner this company starts bottling this stuff, the better.

On tap @ Strange. Pours deep grown with a tan head. Big coffee burnt roast malt and a little fruit on the nose. Taste of chocolate, tart cherries, sweet roasty malt, coffee. Med mouthfeel with a surprising bitter hop finish. A lot going on in this brew!

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.
