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.

Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, fruity, cherry, light hoppy, light yeasty. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and light acidic with a average duration. Very refreshing and fresh like a good fruit beer. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090306]

yespr (30909) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
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.
