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@home; muchos gracias Mes! Poured an enticingly dense hazy dark red colour. Aroma was tart and big on ripe cherries, with plenty of da funk. Pretty lively carbonation. Flavour had lovely tart cherry aplenty, and the lemony notes that developed were a welcome and tasty twist. Started sour, than dried a bit , then finished off sour with more slightly sweet (glace?) cherry. Dig it.
