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.

Bottle @ The Farm. Deep red with a medium off white to pinkish head. Aroma had tart cherries, brett and hints of lacto. Flavour was quite tart with fresh cherries, brett, wood and hints of lacto. Finished tart. Really refreshing.

Extremely beautiful deep clear blood red body with a fine sparkle, the very beautiful pink head could last a little longer; There is not that much aroma at first but it opens a little with time in the glass, the aromas are a fine composed and balanced mix of warm marzipan and sour cherry meat, the yeast becomes clear behind and adds something sharp that doesnt really fit; The body is a little thin and the cherry plays very little part here, the yeast on the other hand is quite apparent, lightly acid, good but not as balanced as the nose; It finishes very light as well, light acids, light fresh aromas, again the yeast is a little to present normally I like this yeast taste and in the Struise Lensis it is perfect, but here it doesnt really fit. Refreshing and very drinkable, if there will be a second batch I will be looking very much forward!

Ungstrup (31474) - 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 (4991) - 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 (2100) - 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 (3366) - 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.
