Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the dark fruit with some brown sugar and oak aged notes. Fairly complex and very enjoyable. The aroma is more of the same. I get some lightly tart dark fruit, strawberries and cherries, as well as some oak aging notes. The tartness is fairly minimal. The beer is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(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

On tap @ Pre ZBF. The aroma has cherries, wood. Hazy, red coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is slightly sour, has cherries, woody tones, perhaps some vanilla. Good balance there. Nice brew.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2010
(Bottled, 0.75l) Murky dark red with a small pink head. Mildly tart cherry nose with the "strawberry ice cream brett mix" still evident. Quite mild cherry flavor with faint tartness and a peachy-mushy brett touch. Almost medium body, lowish carbonation. Still not very convincing after the barrel treatment - lacks tartness and body. 4254
