Bottle PZF & PZT. Wow! Pours Pink Pink and More Pink. Aroma :Full ripe cherries,creme fraise,tart with some funk. Flavour: full bold and deep in cherry characters slight lactic acid but very moreish as it is not overlly sweet. Prefer this to normal Kerasus as the flavour is much bolder and fuller in body.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #10. Consumed many many times over a week period. This one scores huge points for drinkability. Pours a murky dark pink/purple with a wonderful pink fizzy head. Strong black and ripe red cherry aroma, tart and sour with a moderate acidity, hint of yogurt. Having tried both base beers its easy to see what each contributes. Flavor is mostly cherry complimented by tart tangy lemon, like cherry-lemonade, slightly funky with hints of yeast. Not too tart that one can’t drink it without puckering, but just sour enough to be extremely tasty. With age this should dry out a bit and become more sour, however, its quite good as it is now. Medium/light bodied with crisp soda carbonation, not syrupy at all. Great artwork by Beejay Oslon.

Bottle at alvinne and at the struise farm. Alround rating: What a colour, its super pink with a glorious head. Fresh fruity cherry tart aroma, hints of funkyness, some wheaty cereal character, but its soo fresh and refreshing that its all forgotten.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A collaberative brew between Struise (using Struiselensis) and Alvinne (using their Kerasus) which debuted at the Pre-ZBF fest at Alvinne this past weekend.
The beer poured a nice ruby red color with a vibrant pink head. The aroma was a bit sour, cherry. A touch of wood could be detected as well. The seems to be a good mix of the two base beers although I get a bit more of the Kerasus. There are solid cherry notes, wood and overall a tart character on the tongue. Overall a very solid beer that will benefit further from some bottle age I would think.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Pre ZBF, Alvinne, 06-03-09 Pours a murky cherry colour with a real girlie pink head which swiftly dissapeared. Aroma is full on cherries with a little woodiness and nice slightly tingly sourness. Wonderfully tart, though not aggressively sharp in the mouth, the cherries are quite marvellous, nicely dry, really moreish beer, great full on fruitiness in here, loved it. A7 A4 F8 P4 OV17 4.1

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at Pre-ZBF, pours hazy cherry color with little to no head. Aroma is very earthy with some cherry shining through. Sweet and sour cherry body that ends with a wierd wood/mold kind of earthy finish. This was still an enjoyable beer, but I think it needs more time in the bottle, and I’m glad that I picked some up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy deep golden red with a small pink head. Dry wooden and almondish cherry dry aroma. Dry, acetone, cherry and wooden flavoured as the main impressions. Dry cherry fruity flavoured into the far finish. Dry cherry as the main impression, the struiselensis doesnt really shine though I thought until I compared this to the Kerasus - there is certainly body and substance from the Struiselensis in this.
