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.

Bottle thanks to Dan! Poured pinkish red with a really small white head that is pretty much a film around the edges from the start. Aroma was had notes of both sweet and tart cherries with a bit of a leafy/woodsy undertone. Flavor began a bit sweet and grew in tartness quickly.
