We jumped at the chance to do a collaboration with our Belgian brewmaster friend Gunther Bensch, from BIIR. This one combines our fruity sense of humor with his fruit beer-brewing know-how.

Late Spring brings the first of the seasonal crop of cherries to Barcelona. So we heaped kilos of this seductive fruit into a strong Belgian beer. The result is a gorgeous balance of sweet and sour cherries. 19°

MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, hoppy, lots of tannins, fruity, some cherries. Aftertaste: bitter, bit resinous, cherry, fruity, lemony, sourish, some cherry skin, vanilla notes, caramel, sourish, bitter tannins.

Belgian style strong blonde ale turned into a fruit beer with cherries, bottle at 77ships’s place. Thin, light pinkish-tinged head, hazy ruby red colour with fuchsia hue. Aroma of fresh sour cherries, nectarine, grenadine, some red candy, banana, bubblegum, white bread. Sweet onset, lots of bubblegummy banana ester balanced by gently souring sour cherry flavour, bit redcurrant-like too, medium carbo, cereally maltiness with a soapy edge, wry touch of cherry peel and unripe nectarine, sweetish finish with sourish fruit balance, herbal touch with lingering bubblegum effect yet still dryish due to the sour element. Weird to combine sweet and sour cherry into one beer, as this kind of makes it fall between two concepts: not an accessible sweet fruit beer for the masses, but not a complex, tangy sour for the connoisseur either. Not sure what to think of this, but surely not my preference when it comes to modern, crafty fruit beer.

Thank you tderoeck! Late night tasting @ home. 330 ml. bottle sampled. Dark red off-white head, some pink. Nose is rotting fermenting massive cherry syrup. Far too carbonated but not bad thick overripe thick sweet cherry, pits, fermenting, too fizzy, fruit syrup. Not a bad fruit beer but that name!

0,33l Flasche direkt aus der Brauerei in BCN. Hellrotes Bier mit rosa Schaum. Säuerlich fruchtiger Duft nach Kirschen und roten Johannisbeeren. Antrunk schön nach Kirsche. Ausgewogene Säure. Etwas Rotwein. Lecker!

tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2017
On tap @ Bergen Craft Beer Fest. Pours hazy orangy red, with a big creamy head. Aroma is tart berries, fruit peel and lactic acid, as well as some leather and wooden notes. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart fruit peel, dark berries and lactic acid, as well as dry wooden brett.

egidis (98) - LITHUANIA - MAY 7, 2017
bottle. red, clear, no foam. bit earthy and sour, cherries. sweet and sour, medium body

Marko (5721) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 On tap at Vrteška. Thanks to whoever shared this. Pinkish/reddish body with no head. Sticky honey and cherry aroma. Light dry cherry taste, vaguely bitterish, vaguely tart - but in a fruity way, which is okay.. No trace of the underlying tripel really. Good / okay, but not that much more than that.
