Quelque Chose

Very, very interesting beer experience. This is different in the extreme and a very brave brew from Unibroue in my opinion.
Deep brownish red color, with no sign of a head. My wife described it as flat iced tea, and that is a pretty accurate description of what you see.
There is immense sweet and sour tartness that come together in the flavor. A bit like the old lager and blackcurrant mixing days of my adolescence; a bit of cider in there too and finally a bit of the Lidemanns lambic cassis. A really rounded fruit, sweet and tart experience with some additional mulled wine spices evident as well.
Mouthfeel and alcohol kick are both good and noticeable.
I like this, but it is similar to Champagne in as much as I would not want top have too much of it. Drag this beer out for an ocassion when you simply want a change of pace or alternatively to surprise someone with something REALLY different.
