Tap. Clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of burnt wiod, funk, tart black berries. Flavor is sweet and sour black berries with some malt on the end. Light to medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at De Steeg, 6/2013. Pours dark red. Tart aroma. Sour cherries. Rich and malty with a tart and sharp sour bite on the backend. I’m not sure that was intended but it gives the beer a nice balance and drinkability and buts into the sweetness. Interesting.

Cloudy amber - nose is of raisin, toffee, a bit of plum, light tartness - flavor is medium sweet up front, raisin, toffee, grape skins - strong, sharp, semi-sour acidity late that is rather off-putting - like they dumped a bunch of malic acid in a sweet belgian ale - meh.
