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.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2009

sayravai (4669) - 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.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle. [thank you, harrisoni]
Pours a wonderful deep, deep red. Small, frothy, pink head. Aroma is very tart, some black currants, lots of cherries, a touch of cellar and funk. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel, though it might be a tad thin. Flavour is nice, lovely tartness and dryness. Good brett, quite chewy, light sweet biscuity malts. Oaky and a little bit of spices. Very easy to drink. Good, elegant sour ale.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a lovely, murky, blood-red with a small frothy off-white head (some pink hues to the head). Nice aroma ("Yes!") of sour cherries, yeast, wood and spices. Flavour’s not as awesome as the aroma but still quite nice: Sour cherries, spices, malt, wood, tart, funky and lightly acidic. Medium bodied. Really good!
