I drank it warm as recommended. Nice cherry meets barnyard aroma, The temp gives the alcohol a vaporous quality that tickles the nose. Nice combination of cherry, malt, vanilla with a well-balanced sweet-tart quality. Pretty red-amber color with lacy head throughout. They musta thrown in a hop or two ’cause there’s a bit of bitterness at the finish. Enjoyable and warming.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy dark reddish color with a small, disappearing pinkish head. Not much carbonation. The aroma and flavor have sweet cherry fruitiness, additional berries, mild spices, hints of caramel, slight tart, oak, yeast. This is a solid fruit beer that I have yetto try warm.

Hazy copper with a minimal white head.
Sweet, strong, cherry aroma.
Taste is very sweet, cherry juice..
A very natural cherry flavor.
Perhaps the most cherry-driven beer I’ve had yet.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a hazy, reddish brown colored body with almost no head at all. There were just a few small, light tan bubbles around the sides of the glass. The aroma is light with a modest tea like herbal hops and chopped up fresh cherries in the nose. The flavor has a mix of sweet, sour and tangy fruits and spices that reminds me off mincemeat pie filling with a warming brandy flavor note. Hop flavor is mild and herbal. All these flavors mix and mingle nicely on the tongue within a smooth and slightly sticky full body. This beer has a very deep interesting flavor and a wonderful full body that made for a nice slow sipping after dinner treat.

Bottle. Tart black cherry and molasses malt aroma. Dark orange-brown with small head. Sweet black cherry, cinnamon, and caramel malt flavor. Mildly bitter herbal finish. Supposed to be drunk hot but it’s 90 deg F (32 C) out so screw it.

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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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.

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