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.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of cherries and stored fruits. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of cherries, which makes it quite tart. Nice, though the body is thin.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2009
Bottle@Home. Sour cherries and cherry pits aroma. Cloudy, red colour, irregular pink head, fair lace. Fruity sour start that diminishes quickly to some sourness on the lips, light sweet, light bitter, cherries, bitterness from the cherry pits it seems. Thinnish, fruity dry finish. The cherry is there but body and balance are missing.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to xnoxhatex pours a red pink color with a pink head. Funked sour nose. Red fruit, cherries, drying and interesting. Prickly carbonation. Slightly earthy flavors with tart cherries that fade to a strawberry pop. Watery and sweet, but a solid and drinkable beer.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2009
330cl bottle. thanks to devon and the other guys for sharing....nice raspberry red appearance with a soapy light pink head.... funky nose with a huge red fruit component to it. nice, dry, sour, and funky....tart dry red cherries with a lively mouthfeel. a little short on the sustenance of flavor but this, too, was highly drinkable.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle from WeeheavySD at the T3. Looks like tomato juice and cranberry. I sucked the puddle from the table after the bottle gushed. Tartness and cherries in the nose. Flavor is sour and cinnamon. Yummy.

Served from a bottle at toncatchers T3 tasting! Thanks to stefanje, lagunitasfan, weeheavysd, fordest, wetherel, alohac and of course toncatcher for suppling the house and grub. Besides bieng a gusher this was a very good sour. Loved the subtle tartness ballanced with the mildly sweet cherries.
