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.

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Slightly hazy honey-hued orange body, small white head. Aroma is apple vinegar, hints of lemon and...well, not much else. Taste is strong vinegar acidic notes, balsamic and hints of lemon. Too one-dimensional for me, but others might like this sort of thing. :-P Still, its a well-made beer and Im glad to have tried it.
