      Overall Impression (3)
      Bright red. Big thick head. Smells like Rodenbach Alexander. Medium-big body, really fizzy. Intense sweet dark malt and lots of sour cherry flavor. (But there's no fruit in this beer.) Tart but not sour, malty but not overly sweet. Quite a bit of Brettanomyces, and some acetaldehyde. Incredibly tasty and complex beer!

      Dark cherry tartness. Earthy, with some dark Munich malt notes. Horse blanket mustiness.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Light body, fizzy. Dark sweet malt, not roasty, but more like toffee. Nicely tart, with a black cherry character. Mild earthy background, mildly spicy. Big fruity, dry finish.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Excellent complex beer. A light version of the classic Duchesse du Bourgogne.
