sulawang (1161) - - JAN 18, 2017
Visual: (cellared for 4 years). Pours opaque cloudy red currant colour with barely any head, very thin ringed retention, suspended micro sediment, just a few bubbles here and there.

Nose: light red fruity sour barley malt, pie crust. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: slightly thicker viscosity, barely tingly

Mid-palate: soft tart, mellow dull cherry flavour, (lvl-4-sweetness), soft short sour, sustained tangy, brown sugar barley malt, controlled acidity, thinnish body

Finish: almost salty, residual red fruity barley malt

Summary: The cherry fruit flavour is underwhelming and the Belgian ale profile is short and unremarkable - put them together? No surprise, nothing special. It’s drinkable at least for 8.2%.

Pours a dark red/amber with a brief ring of foam. Yeasty, dark fruit aroma - not bad. Tastes of tart cherries, yeasty, slightly chocolatey and roasty. There’s a bit of unobtrusive hopping in here, too. Decent carbonation in the body, but thin. Nice warming aftertaste. This is an interesting beer, probably the same base as the other two fruit beers but less artificial tasting.

650ml bottle. Pours pinkish-amber with a dusting of head. Aroma is mild cherry and Belgian yeast with earthy notes and green punchy hops. Lightly sweet taste - pushes the cherry further to the background, yet hides the high alcohol content well. Light, a little fizzy and watery. Interesting, but lacks complexity. Maybe it matures if cellared for awhile.
