sebletitje (8602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Bouteille 75cl, 63/250, lot 391, bb fev 2015. Couleur rougeâtre/rubis, mousse beige. Arôme a de profondes notes de cerises tout en gardant cet aspect de fût de Bourgogne. L’aigreur des cerises se ressent ainsi que le boisé qui st évoqué par le chêne. En bouche, une bière facile à boire de 5.5% avec une couche de cerises acidulées qui n’est pas trop désagréable au palais, une fine carbonation qui se mélange au bois et un du Bourgogne qui reste bien en retrait tout en laissant une fin de touche de vignoble. Mon seul regret pour cette bière reste un peu le mutisme du fût de Bourgogne qui a un peu dur à se faire présent.

2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed ruby red body with a tan head. Aromas are big and vinous with fruit, berries, tartness, wine, caramel, leather and strawberries. Flavors are much less tart, but very vinous with caramel, berries and wine. Lively bubbles.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft at 2011 Max’s Belgian Fest at 2008 Oak Kerasus: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet toasty caramel and light fruity tart nose with some vinous oak. Starts with average fullness and light carbonation with some oily texture and light caramel and fruity tartness. Finishes drier and oaky with some lingering vinous flavor.

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.

Erzengel (7113) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Tolle leuchtend rote Farbe, sauer-fruchtiger Geruch. Der AT ist vollmundig und angenehm sauer! Schöne leichte Kirschtöne, dazu angenehm Säure mit deutlich holzigem Einschlag!

77ships (6917) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2012
(2009 Vintage) / limited to 250 bottles – 75 cl. bottle split with Belgbeergeek – thx to him: (A) Bourgogne dark red, no head, pretty wine-looking – (S) reminds me of Kerasus 2010, lots of nice tart cherries with a slight sweet side to them, slightly woody – (T) slightly watery tart cherries, vineous leading into the slightly bitter wooden, tannins, Bourgogne part – (B) definitely thinned out by the BA, basically just takes Kerasus 2010 a notch down, slight sweetness & tart cherry finish of the base beer is replaced by ok Bourgogne, tannins, wood,… soft carb. ok beer, definitely too much thinned out
