Danish: En kompleks kirsebærale. Øllet har en smukt rød kulør og er lagret i to år på franske egefade med vildgæren brettanomyces, hvilket bidrager til en syrlig og vinøs base. Den tørre smag er præget af eg, vanille, marcipan og kirsebær. En særdeles udfordrende og delikat oplevelse med stor fylde, syrlighed og lang, vinøs eftersmag. Pinot Noir-fadlagret.

English: Stevns CCC Vintage 2009 is a sour mash beer, fermented with concentrated Stevns cherries and aged with Brettanomyces in a solera system, using primarily Pinot Noir barrels, started in 2007 with the original Stevns CCC brew made with Will Meyers from the Cambridge Brewing Co. This vintage of the beer was blended from three different barrels and has an aroma dominated by cherries, smooth brett, dark malts and oak. The very dry and crisp flavour has distinct acidity with fruity and winey notes. The aftertaste is long and complex, with all the flavour elements interchanging, ending on a discreet marzipan and bitter almond note.
