COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This dark chestnut brew has a nice caramel malt character, a tart cherry fruitiness that carries throughout, and a nice warming finish. As with all of our Brewers’ Select beers, Tango is available in draft at awesome Weyerbacher-supporting bars and restaurants and is made available in 12oz bottles at Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center only. This is a once and done limited release. Tango is the letter “T” in the NATO / phonetic alphabet. Belgian-Style Dark Ale brewed with cherries 9.6% ABV, 21IBU

Bottle. Super dark ruby with a thin ring of head. Aroma is sweet cherry and oat. Taste follows suit. I like that the cherry is pretty natural tasting. Medium mouthfeel and carb. Solid.

Pours deep ruby-tinged mahogany into a trappist glass. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Dark plum and pit fruit aromas. Sweet pit fruit and cocoa upfront turning dry and spritzy in the medium length, mild cherry finish.

Loved this beer. The tart cherry flavor meshed well with the complex malts and Belgian yeast.

DandyWolfFloyd (614) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma - contains cherry, booze, and a banana like element from the yeast Appearance - ruby amber body color; liquid has a fine buoyant sediment; head is beige set us up about 2" and quickly rings out Taste - caramelized sugar, some cherry notes, but small. There is a champagne like yeasty quality. Very boozy. Palate - body is medium; texture nearly vinous; carbonation is lively; the finish is boozy and has an alcohol sting.

Latest corked bottle and served in a Weyerbacher tulip: Pours a ruby brown hue with little head not lace. The aroma is caramel and toasted malt with cherry cough syrup, some surprising smoke and full earthiness. The taste is is acidic tones over sweet and grainy malts but I am left with a strong feeling of wanting... wanting true tart cherry flavor, wanting complex malt characters, wanting I dunno a Flemish Sour... and this is not that. Add that this is far too brash and abrasive with the alcohol made it nearly undrinkable (and this comes from someone who enjoys the brashness of Weyerbacher beers)

sweet cola like aroma,kind of like a Dr Pepper..nice reddish brown color but completely headless after pour..tastes sweet cherries honey other malts kind of like a barleywine,a little spiciness from the yeast and a slight hop tingle are also present but not much..very heavy feeling with almost total lack of carbonation overall Im glad I tried it about what I expected might even buy it again I love cherries after all good and interesting,not great

750 mL My bottle says 10.6 abv. Medium sized head made up of varying sized bubbles with very good carbonation. Once the main head dissipates, the surface dances with the strong carbonation surfacing light a good belgain should. Very impressive! Wonderful crimson brown in color. Yeasty aroma with some belgian candi sugar, caramel malts and dark fruit. Mostly roasted grains in the flavor with some raisins, plums, dark brown sugar and sticky malts. Sort of cloying mouthfeel that is rather sticky and pasty. Lingering dark malts and yeast at the finish. Mild alcohol presence that does not seem like 10+ percent. A decent belgian brew.

WanderinCelt87 (131) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pour is a deep hazy brown with a white head. Aroma is very subtle coffee. Taste is subtle with notes of coffee and cherry. Leaves a bitter malt after taste

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours an odd brown/slightly reddish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of sweet medicinal cherries, some dark dried fruits, light sweet caramel. Taste is borderline cherry cough syrup, some nice sweet dried fruits, cherries, caramel, light earthy notes, some mild chocolate, fruits, mild alcohol sweetness on the finish. Meh.
