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.

Bottled. Cloudy reddihs brown, almost no head. Tart cherry aroma. Medium bodied with quite intense flavour of bitterish cherry stars and tart cherries over a firm malt back bone. Hevily tanninic finish. Interesting and realy tasty

In short: An oaky cherry pie in a bottle with an acidic finish. Ok.
How: Bottle 330ml. Exact age unknown, probably about 1 year old. Given to me by reakt, thanks a lot Angelo
The look: Cloudy shining red body topped by a very small pink head
In long: Nose is lightly sour, some cherries, some phenols. The crisp and sweet malt base has the flavor of a crunchy pie crust. Add to that the cherry jelly flavor and you’ve got yourself a cherry pie, which is pretty much what this beer tastes like except for some oak and the rather acidic finish that I could have done without. Classified as a Sour Ale, I more or less agree, but that’s hard one to pigeonhole. This had some potential but to me the tart acidic finish ruined the experience. Oh well, this was a disappointment. But big boys like me don’t cry. We eat.

Bottle courtesy of Darkguardian. After trying to figure out how to describe this beer, I decided that hirigalzkar summed it up pretty well. So go check out his rating...

Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2010
Sour aroma. Mainly sour taste with an aftertaste that is somewhat less sour than the smell. Further little palate.

Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - OCT 3, 2010
Very dark bordeaux red, small pink head. Smell is very sour-cherish, caramel. Sweet spiced. Sour-fruity taste with some yeast comming up. Not bad, but it’s completly not my style of beer. Way to much sourness, to much cherish...

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bottled. Spicy, pitty cherry aroma, with some hibiscus, and an air of autobody shop. Nice balance of acids in the flavor, not puckeringly sour but definitely a good amount, with more cherry pit and cinnamon. A bit heavy.

330 ml bottle a red purple colored beer with a tiny pink head aroma sour cherries and caramel sugar taste sourness fruits cherry’s and some caramel

finol (3427) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark cherry red. Taste of mature cherries, natural with high drinkability.

hirigalzkar (3204) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours red, no head. Notes of cherries and bacteria in aroma. The taste starts out sour, but ends sweet of cherries with a vinous touch. A simple and easy to drink sour ale without any real character.

The pour reveals a cloudy red color with a medium pinkish head. The aroma is slightly sour with a good dose of cherries and brettanomyces, it’s very appealing. The flavor is solid, it’s sour with a nice balance between the cherries and the brettanomyces. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. This blend is an amazing success, which isn’t too surprising knowing the competence of the breweries involved.
