COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First blended by Glenn & Urbain at the Bles Festival in Zottegem Belgium, last October 2008, for the beer geek public, and around closing time. Many positive feedbacks around the blend, kept following both breweries. As a tribute, and honour to the late Pre-Zbf 2009 festival, we decided together with Alvinne, to officialize this blend to a one time labelled bottling this year. Only a thousand 33cl bottles were filled, to be distributed and sold on this fest, and in our respective shops.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
’Versnijbier’ which originated as an improvised experiment at the Nationale Bierhappening of Zottegem in 2008 but limitedly continued after that. Struiselensis mixed with Kerasus apparently results in a beer reminiscent of oude kriek, with a pale pinkish, thick head and deep purplish red colour, misty. Complex and assertive aroma of sour cherries on a nutty and caramelly malt base, funky, sherry- and hay-like impressions; soft sourish taste, complex, woody, extremely fruity from real fruit and estery yeast, interesting spiciness in the finish further adding complexity. A must if you’re into sour beers.

TEJA (1286) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
Sampling @ omhper, thanks. Brown color. Complex brettnomyses aroma together with fruity cherry arom and taste where you also notice the cherry seed. Then a perfect sweet ending.

kraddel (3004) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2013
Pours deep clear red, very small white foam . Smells like a swiming pool ( nevermind , i always get this with old cherry beers) Thin mouthfeel , harsh sourness ( i would believe this is american ) Some cherry ( most of it in the aftertaste ) dry . Nice but not thrilled

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle… Murky burgundy ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The woody, funky bouquet offers fruity-sweet cherries and soft acidity. Light to medium-bodied and fairly thin with busy carbonation. The flavor provides moderately sharp acidity and a crisp, fruity, cherry finish. Dries out a good bit. It’s no oude kriek, but it’s a nice sour cherry ale. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours cloudy, red-gold with a light, white film. Lovely tangy cherry nose. Nice and tart flavor, light to medium sweet, with very mild butter notes. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, refreshing to finish with bits of tart cherries. Very nice overall. Has a nice tangy fruit bite.

Scopey (6718) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours cloudy deep red, with a thin white head. The nose is tart cherry, cherry skin, lemon, some white vinegar and a hint of almond. The taste is tart cherry, sharp lemon, juicy fruit, sour red grape, cherry skin and vinegar, with a tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not complex, but highly drinkable. Delicious.
