4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate: bottle at home, MASSIVE thanks to Glenn and Davy for sending me a bottle home with Sim when I missed the festival.
Woo HOOOOOO this is a good one. God knows what you Danish folks are thinking but for me this is very enjoyable indeed. Sim agrees, and so does our Magic Tom. Aroma is through the roof. Simply amazing cherries and cinnamon goodness with a good amount of wood and bourgogne showing through. Just adorable. The flavour is pretty much the same but there is just a hint of metal that holds it back but just a touch. Palate gets a five because the drinkability is absolutely effortless. Finish is more sublime cherries that has glorious length and eventually settles on some great barrel notes. Just bloody great stuff all round.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Pre ZBF 2010. Pours a hazy red beer. Fruity tartness, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Having the original Kerasus 2009 in mind, the barrel doesn’t really enhance the beer imo.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Red coloured. Unclear. Dense reddish head. Berries, sweetness, light citrus and some wood/barral. Flaovur as well full of berries and dry fruits. Citric and sourish with a light marzipany touch. Medium bodied. Grapy and sourish end. Dont think the bourgogne barral does a lot for the beer.
