Well rounded but elegant flavor profile. Very distinct flavor but drinkable, or more preferably sippable, in conjunction with food or as a standalone.

Appearance: dark amber almost brown beer, cloudy, pours with no head Aroma: intense cherry, tart, very sweet, spice, maybe cinnamon, licorice, pumpkin, the more you smell this beer the more you find, very complex Taste: sweet, cherry, tart, syrup, maybe some sourness Palate: soft carbonation, thick mouthfeel, cherry aftertaste Overall: probably not something I’d want to drink again but very interesting, it’s a little too syrup like for me, definitely the most sophisticated fruit beer I’ve had to this point

750ml bottle (room temperature) - pre-pour thinking: this is going to explode all over my desk like most Unibroue beers. Wow! nothing happened. Smells like Dubble Bubble gum. Pours like a liquid red grape with huge bubble that disappear. Nose is cherry, currant, and all around "berry" - Platonically speaking: a lower form of berriness. Through metonymy, I’m think NyQuil cherry flavor and I hope I don’t puke soon. Shh, the secret ingredient in a Flaming Moe is cough syrup. My gums are stinging. The cherry aftertaste is quite pure. Ya quelque chose de sinistre la dedans: c’est comme si les cerises cachaient du sang. C’est presque le crime parfait car il y a un soupçon. Tart and sweet. interesting and "heady" as the credit card hippies called the more expensive "stuff" at Red Rocks back in the Summer of 2001. PS: I had it warm as well and it made the booziness more apparent and also reminded me of December in 2001 when I was in Strasbourg (FR) for the Christmas market. I had an awesome waffle with powdered sugar and a cup of warm red wine. man it was cold that night. Frank Booth would kill 2X if he had this beer warm.

Cloudy orange pour with reddish tinge and no head. Aroma of yeast, cherry and malts. Taste of malts, sweet cherry, slight caramel, faint yeast and tart citrus. Full bodied, no carbonation, very smooth. Sweet and tart at the same time and wonderfully balanced. Had chilled first and then tried hot, preferred chilled but pretty awesome both ways.

2013.01.25-Unibroue Quelque Chose - bottle marked Best Before 31-12-2025. Appearance: Pours like a dark copper that has been tainted by red. Little to no head, but my bottle is over 1yr old. Aroma - dark, black cherry. Taste: as you expect, dark ale and cherry/black cherry. Palate/Mouthfeel: pretty light mouthfeel. Little carbonation. Like a flat black cherry soda. Overall: Does what it says on the bottle. This is a nice cherry ale. Probably better than Three Philosophers. In the ballpark of Kasteel Rouge but much better. Worth an occasional purchase. Aroma 5/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 6/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 13/20

(Dégusté la moitié de la bouteille froide et l’autre moitié chauffée aux alentours de 70 degrés) - Bière d’un brun rougeâtre qui rappelle le whisky. La mousse est absente, si ce n’est de quelques bouillonnement négligeables. La Quelque chose est limpide, mais sombre. Au nez, la version chaude offre un parfum sucré de gâteau aux cerises. Lorsque froide, une odeur posée de raisins et de cerises avec une timide dose d’alcool. L’arôme rafraîchit et fait penser, par moments, à une bonne sangria. En bouche, la version chaude présente du raisin et de la cerise en nous laissant avec un agréablement picotement en gorge. La version froide propose une amertume idéale, elle est moins sirupeuse, mais semble plus sucrée. Au bilan, l’expérience est irréprochable – une grande bière!

Bottle. This is one of the best fruit beers I have ever had. It has a real wallop of sour cherry flavor.

A: Spicy... cinnamon. bubblegum. a bit of cherry. A: Ruby red color. but zero head.... my bottle is flat as a pancake. T: more winelike than beer. Lots of spice and a bit of fruit. Almost like a christmas ale or so. P: No carbonation to hide any of the flavors. huge spice note. bubblegum. spice finish. it’s ok. Overall there are some interesting things here, but the lack of carbonation (whether it be intentional or an accident) really takes a lot away from this one. It lacks a crispness that would make the spice really shine.
