Saltaire Brewery Belgian Red (7.2%)

Part of Saltaire’s XS range, this is a lovely beer that’s absolutely heaving with black cherry and walnut flavours.
The beer pours a ruby red and smells of toffee and barley sugar sweets.
The malting is rich and round and chewy, full of red cherries and treacle tart, vanilla pancakes and brandy snaps, and there’s a good hit of hedgerow greenery, garden herbs, lemon zest and nettle tea from the hops.
You also find a spicy bread dough warmth from the yeast and a slap of alcohol heat that drives you towards the rich round forest fruits of the finish.
