2012, so aged a year. Brightly red color, zero head or lace. Lighter cherries, honey sweetness, pleasantly blended. Booze is somewhat hidden, yet not absent. Tasty.

I found this beverage staggeringly off, with which esters, vanillin, Cavendish bananas, nutritional yeast, honey, and crushed aspirin took the lead role. I’d be genuinely pleased if this winter spiced ale and myself never crossed paths again.

Dark amber pour at ChurckKey. A whisp of a head. Malty and spiced nose. Not much hint of cherry in the nose or the taste. Nice finish with some floral honey components.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful ruby amber with a reasonable head and lacing. The nose is of cherries against a slight chocolate coupled with a typical Belgian yeast aroma. It also has hints of sweetness and alcohol. Almost medium body with good carbonation. Nice slick mouthfeel. A superbly balanced beer, with a flavor profile similar to the nose. Tart cherry over a nice sweetness with a chocolate background. For an 11% alcohol brew, this one hides it well - but you get the nice burn all the way through. Crisp finish with a burst of flavor from the carbonation that brings the spice flavor to the forefront. The finish is also where the alcohol becomes more evident as the beer nears room temperature.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
At a tasting, thanks Yoav, no head, quite hazy rusty red colour, aroma of strawberries and raspberries, with a touch of malt in the back, strong jammy flavour with a strong and a bit coarse bitterness, some alcohol coming through. Heavy and unappealing.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Reddish amber color. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel and some dark fruits. Sweet flavor, caramelly, honey-ish, fruity and slightly spicy, finishes a bit alcoholic. Medium to full-bodied, a bit syrupy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013/12/05 - Pours a ruby-amber colour with a small, off white head that fades quickly and does not lace. Aroma is cherries, dark fruits, spices, yeast and slight chocolate. Taste is cherries, spices, biscuit malts, and booze. Leaves a sweet medicinal aftertaste, almost like cough syrup. Mouthfeel is medium with prickly carbonation. A nice tasting brew, but I find the aftertaste somewhat off putting.
