Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 750 mL bottle. Pours a beautiful deep, dark copper color, with plenty of frothy head! Amazing aromas of cherries and malt! The taste is strong in sweet malts, a slight sour/tart taste from the cherries, but a good Belgian nonetheless.

bottle. Brown with small head. Sweet caramel and chocolate malts. Boozy with cherry fruitness. I expected more tartness from the cherries. Just sweet and boozy. I don’t know if this needed more time to age. Too many rough edges at the moment.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: First pour yielded a moderately hazed deep amber color. Two fingers of frothy tan head that falls rather quickly and leaves nearly no lacing.
4.25 S: Oh shit! The cherries in this are super strong. Sweet, sweet cherries. Behind that there’s a peppery spiciness, caramel, and sugar crackery maltiness. Mild yeast breadiness, plum fruitiness, and a hint of clove. Really nice.
3.75 T: Like the nose, the cherries are the strongest component. Though this tastes great, the flavors don’t come together as well as they do in the nose. It’s sweet, but less so than the nose lets on. Still got caramel, plum and raisin fruits, peppery and clove spice. The yeast is more pronounced adding a heftier breadiness.
3.25 M: Heavier medium body. A bit overcarbonated. Fizzy without being very spritzy if that makes sense.
3.5 D: Good beer, but I think it would be better without as much yeastiness and if the mouthfeel turned out better (with too much carbonation being the biggest problem).
