harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
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

TBone (11935) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2010
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.

(750ml bottle, BB Feb 2015) Pours a murky dirty blood red body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of cherry, yogurt, vinous, barnyard, red currants, wet leather, and wood. Flavor of cherry, Bourgogne tannins, earth, and lacto with a dry wood finish. Excellent.

thewolf (10786) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
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.

Cloudy red with a small white head. Aroma of cherries mostly, with funk, and a bit of oak and coconut. Dry and tart cherry flavour with bretty funk mostly. A bit thin mouthfeel, but delicious beer
