A collaboration between Gipsy Hill and Villages, this is a Belgian style Dubbel aged on sour cherries.
More importantly it’s a thing of loveliness.
It smells of treacle tart and stone fruit, and it’s a very malty beer.
Taking a swig you get a great big hit of dry and crunchy digestive biscuits, malt loaf, raisins and honey, and underneath this there’s a subtle earthy yeast hum and some brittle and crunchy autumnal leaves for the hops.
The cherries are very subtle, adding just a hint of tart fresh fruitiness to the edges of the round rum finish.
