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.

skortila (5160) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has some slight tartness, cherry aroma. Clear, dark red coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is a little tart, has some sweetness and cherry fruitiness. Bit a light body.

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2009
(bottle, thanks Brad!) Pours cloudy red with no head whatsoever. Aromas of tart cherry skin and an underlying earthiness, but that’s about all I got out of it. The taste has an ample amount of tart cherries, with a sweet undertone, which switches out to a bone dry, yeast and vitamin-like finish. Parches the mouth like eating a bunch of daily-Cs. Mouthfeel is thin.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Pours cloudy dark cherry skin red with a few off white bubbles. Slight aroma of cherry and some lactic acid. Flavor is fairly sharp, lots of tart cherries. Medium mouthfeel. Solid tart cherry finish. I’m a little bit disappointed by this offering from Struise.

11.2oz bottle. This one has been high on my wants for a while, big thanks for Brad for the opportunity. Unfortunately, this one is a huge letdown. Tart pineapple brett and tart cherries on the nose. Pours a dark ruby pink with a thin off-white film atop. nearly lifeless. Flavor is rather bland. No cherry presence. Tart yeast. Tastes like watery, slightly carbonated cherry juice. Average body. Club soda carbonation with a dry finish. Damn... this could have been great.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2009
A red body with very faint whiteish head. Tart cherries on the aroma. A lightly sour body with cherries and a smooth carbonation that had a wonderful mouthfeel.

daknole (10836) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Reddish pour. pink head. Aroma of cherry pie and tart cherries. Flavor is tart with some berry vinegar and cherry pie flavors. Good shit!

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2009
(Bottled) Clear ruby color with a small, firm and pink head. Tart and sweetish aroma of cherries and cherry stones. Flavor is also cherries, with moderate tartness, but also plenty of sugars left. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly thin. A decent fruit beer, but not very memorable as such. No point in spoiling Struiselensis by adding Kerasus, IMO.

DSG (11353) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 20, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/5/09] Bottle sample at Kulminator in Antwerp after LCRBM. Deep red color with a pinkish head. Aroma of oak, fresh berries and some light sugary nottes. Sour-sweetish flavor with some malt, fruits (berries and some others), some bread notes, wood and brett. Medium-bodied.
