Canopy Beer Belgian Red Ale With Sour Cherries (5.5%)

Oh my, this is a bit special.
The red malts create a sticky toffee, brown sugar, honey, brioche and Belgian waffle body.
Sweet and warm, chewy and satisfying, it’s the deep heart of the beer, buoyed up by the earthy mushroom and damp woodland leaf litter of the Belgian yeast, making the beer perfect on a cold autumnal Sunday evening such as the one I’m writing this in.
There’s a snappy woodruff and nettle tea, rolling tobacco and liquorice hit of hops as well, and then the cherries surface, more tart than sour, they add a fresh fruitiness to the dry bitter finish of this superb little beer.
