Brewed by way of single step infusion. Bottom fermenting yeast is added to induce fermentation at 10C (48F). When attenuation reaches 50 %, it is blended with a combination of old and young sour beer that were fermented with lactic acid bacteria, wild yeast and black sweet cherries. The fermentation continues and the natural sugars from the malt and cherries are converted to alcohol. At the end of primay fermentation, fresh beer wort and top fermenting Saccharomyces Cerevisiae yeast are added. The beer is then bottled and sent to refermentation in a cold room at around 7C (42F). The refermentation lasts about 4 months.

Editors note: Alcohol content varies from batch to batch, and has ranged from 6% up to the 7.5% of the most recent batch.

Bouteille version 2006. Une robe trouble de couleur bruntre quon a aperu dans le fond de lvier (pas autant que la Panil Blanche). Un nez suret avec des cerises et du bois mouill. Cest tout de mme surprenant. Une bouche agrable et piquante. Des notes boises se mlent avec des notes de cerises et des brett. La finale est agressive et pique le bout de la langue la manire dun vin frizant.

Mon ami Yan aime le risque. Il achte cette bouteille, vintage 2006, un peu poussireuse mais lgante et irrsistible, il va sans dire. Yan a la brillante ide de penser louvrir dans lvier. Bonne ide: ds la dcapsulation, le liquide sempresse de sortir. Toutefois, rien de bien catastrophique, il nous reste deux beaux gros verres de ce liquide presque brun ou rougetre, cest selon. Au nez, cerises, bretts et parfums terreux fortement agrables mais aucunement renversants. Au got, dautres fruits accompagnent les cerises. Les levures apportent des nuances de terre et de cuir. En bouche, le liquide est ptillant, mince sans tre aqueux. La finale est trs sche, sauvage, non-agressive. tonnante. Plutt facile boire. Rien de dsagrable sinon son prix assez fou. Anyway, merci rodenbach99 pour ce verre gratisse.

After some gushing from this 2006 bottle, it pours a cloudy colour of rust. The foam is small but long lasting. The lacing. .superb. The smell is dry and musty. Very much wine like for the dry and musty as in theres a lot of Brett character. Pretty amazing aromas in my book. The taste is just as good as the smell. Strong Brett complimenting a super dry wine like taste. Mildly tart, earthy as all hell, a treat to drink. Good mouthfeel. .the carbonation is a bit high, imho. 9 years old and quite entertaining.

30 May 2015, tap at Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival. Ruby. Nose is cherry juice. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Cherry juice and bitter. Nice. Too heavy to be refreshing but very good.

(Year 2009) dark red with no foam. Aroma has cerry notes and wood is present in the nose (it comes from cerry pit). Aged in steel barrels coming from low fermentation beer. Drinking it you can feel fruits and vanilla while it leave a persistant sour taste at the end.
