(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

Had this at Pre ZBF 5th March 2010 Pours wonderful red colour with good clarity. This is quite a lovely beer in terms of aroma (sweeter than expected) though sour cherries are leaping up the nostrils. In the mouth this is sour, woody and with clear wine enhanced characteristics, dry at the end, little puckering in the mouth, good tangy stuff. A8 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.7

madmitch76 (22450) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
5th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Cloudy dark red beer. Some sour cherry on the nose. Sharpiish dry palate. Refreshing tartness without getting puckery. The cherry is there but not overwhelming - just a nice crisp prescense. Very refreshing beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear red with a small off-white head. Dry and lactic aroma, very tart berries. Rather light in body, very tart berry fruitiness with an astringent and almost leathery finish. Leaves some tannins on the teeth. Very dry finish - fresh though. 210810

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Bottled@sayravaitasting (from bierkompass.de). Very deep ambery brown colour along with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild sour wooden notes along with some cherries, mild vanilla and quite earthy notes. Flavour is being quite similar. Mild chocolate cookielike notes as well.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottled. Aroma has a tart cherry punch, plywood, a speck of cinnamon. Some brussels sprouts after swirling. Unassertive. Mouthfeel is super dry, bordering on astringency at points, with a lot of nice oak character. Mildly acidic, with a long cherry finish. Lacking in body.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting, Jan 2011. Thank you HallingHansen. Pours cloudy pink with a creamy white head on top. Cherries/berries and a bit of marzipan and oak in the nose. Sweet. Vaguely tart and refreshing flavor with oak and cherries. Smooth and really tasty.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Draft at Max’s. Bright red pour with an orange tint. Slightly opaque. Sour aroma with oaky notes. Creamy and vanilla. Dry tart flavor with lemon and citrus peel. Tartness lingers on the back of the throat. Nice easy to drink beer.
