Tap at Emelisse Oktoberfest 2010. What a nice thick creamy head on this one, beautiful. Smooth flavor with subtle cherries, subtle brett and subtle sherry in a nice balance. Very refreshing as well. Great brew overall.

Draught at ZBF 2010
Dark red, hazy colour. Berry tart, vanilla and wood in aroma. Fruity sorbet-like cherry flavour and woody vanilla, and light lactic. Elegant beer and really complex. Light-medium bodied. One of the standouts at ZBF.
