Inspired by the bounty of the fall harvest, the final entry of Pelican’s 2018 Lone Pelican series features ripe, tart cherries in a ruby-brown colored Belgian-style Dubbel. A deeply complex malt character of toffee, caramel, cocoa and dark chocolate provides the foundation while bright tart cherries add the highlights. Belgian-style Abbey yeast creates gentle fruity aromatics that underscore the malt and cherry contributions. A dry, warming finish caps off a smoothly full-bodied beer. The layers of complementary flavors create a deeply satisfying ending to this year’s fruit beer series.
