Can you say Quelxie Shoes? Anyway, this is a wonderful product of those Quebecians at Unibroue. Ive only ever had it cold, but allowed it to warm to near room temp over the course of drinking it. Spiced candied cherries dominate the bouquet and flavor profile of this brew. Some flavorful malt and alcohol as well. Cannot wait to drink this warm by the fire in Mammoth this New Year.

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.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle: 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 Ive had yet. Nicely done.

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 its 90 deg F (32 C) out so screw it.

Ferris (4128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2006 - Rich deep cherry with some dark sugar. Cloudy copper with a thin head. Thick and spicy, almost Worchester sauce, with light cherry notes. Interesting and rich.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
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.

airrick2003 (479) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 8, 2014
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 Id want to drink again but very interesting, its a little too syrup like for me, definitely the most sophisticated fruit beer Ive 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. Aroma 5/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 6/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 13/20

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