Brewed by way of single step infusion. Bottom fermenting yeast is added to induce fermentation at 10°C (48°F). When attenuation reaches 50 %, it is blended with a combination of old and young sour beer that were fermented with lactic acid bacteria, wild yeast and black sweet cherries. The fermentation continues and the natural sugars from the malt and cherries are converted to alcohol. At the end of primay fermentation, fresh beer wort and top fermenting Saccharomyces Cerevisiae yeast are added. The beer is then bottled and sent to refermentation in a cold room at around 7°C (42°F). The refermentation lasts about 4 months.

Editor’s note: Alcohol content varies from batch to batch, and has ranged from 6% up to the 7.5% of the most recent batch.

(Year 2009) dark red with no foam. Aroma has cerry notes and wood is present in the nose (it comes from cerry pit). Aged in steel barrels coming from low fermentation beer. Drinking it you can feel fruits and vanilla while it leave a persistant sour taste at the end.

Lubiere (10698) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
A hazed burgundy red ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, corky cherry malt with light lactic and funky character. In mouth, a tart cherry ale with light corky notes, tannins, a bit harsh. Sampler at Battle of the Belgians at Jimmys 43.

reggiedunlop (3379) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2013
pours a murky/ruddy brown with a thin tan head...bottle exploded. aroma has funky leather and light cherry...very band aidy. flavor is a medicine cabinet...band aids and cherry cough syrup with notable funk. mouthfeel is light and lively with a funky band aid finish that needs to go away sooner.

75 cl bottle @ Vinoteca Piemonte. Rated on 17.09.2010
Somewhat light aroma with slightly sweet cherries and hints of earthy notes. Flavour has sweet and somewhat tart cherries, some earthy and woody notes. Way too low on sourness to be a nice Sour Ale – and too low on sweetness to be a dessert beer.

_angst_ (3235) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle shared at my 30:th birthday tasting on May 5 (30 ĺr av Surt). Courtesy of Larsniclas. Gusher! Pours hazy dark deep red with a big fizzy pinkish white head that is rather quick to dissipate without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and sour with burnt sugar, cherries, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest and hints of raspberries. Taste is sweet and sour with wood, charries, red currants, hay, burnt sugar, grapefruit juice, lemon zest and hints of vinegar. Mouthfeel is tart, tiny dry, tiny watery and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour and tart with cherries, red berries, hay and lemon zest.

sebletitje (7126) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at "30 ĺr av surt", on May 5, 2012 in Göteborg. Batch # 2008/E. Brune col beige. Arôme sur un bouquet aigre modéré et fruits noirs. En bouche, palais est léger avec un manquement flagrant au niveau du pétillant, moyennement aigre, pointe fruits noirs, cerise et raisin le tout étant mis en retrait pas une carbonnation qui n’aide pas le tout ŕ se développer. Dommage car il y a un bon potentiel.
