At ACBF 2011. Red colour clear no head no real carbonation. Some wood over the cherries on the aroma. You know it has more structure than regular Kerasus but I love the sheer vibrancy of the fruit on the original. Tasty though

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 75cl "Kerasus Bourgogne Barrel Oak Aged" (Alvinne shop, BB 02/2015)
Hazy nut brown-reddish color, small off-white head. Sour fruity nose, tart fruityness probably from red grapes (Burgundy) together with sour cherries. Red wine is really evident in the flavor, red grapes and cherries mixed with sourness in nice balance. Very wineous with hints of vanilla. Lingering tart fruityness in the aftertaste. One of the best red wine barrel aged beers I’ve tasted.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Alvinne Beershop.
Pours an absolutely lovely, clear, deep ruby red. Small, rather fizzy, off-white pink head. Stays as a thin rim ’round the edges. Nice sweet fruity aroma, lots of oak, some mild red wine tannins, vanilla. High carbonation, light watery palate. Flavour is mildly dry, somewhat dull at first, then good tartness, fine oaky presence. There are grapes, little tannins, some good cherries. Light marzipan, some vanilla. Quite decent actually, compared to how much sweetness there is in the original version. Nice.

Bottle at CPK thanks to Thomas. Pours a slightly cloudy, bloody-ruby with no head. Aroma is all cherries and wood, slightly dank and funky. Light to medium sweet flavor, mild cherries and fruit, moderate sourness, some wood, a little stinging funkiness. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finish is lightly dry with a wonderful, restrained sour character, nice wood, aged cherries. Very solid beer.
