DC tasting. 750ml bottle Unfiltered. Off the hook De Dolle Reserva sour beer. Big sour notes, balanced by thick, sugary brown malt. Maybe the best CCB I’ve ever had. Red wine vinegar. World Class. Wow.

First time I had this was my first experience with a truly awful beer. Fortunately, this has improved significantly in the past year. Lots of ingredients bumping heads here, reminds me briefly of b3 Consecration before turning south. Not awful, far from being good.

Cloudy deep purple - red beer, big frothy tan head. Nose of lactose and sourish fruits. Light dry palate. Lots of Duchesse Du Bourgogne like sour fruits. Then there is lemon, subtle blackcurrant and jammy hibiscus. Semi dry finish. Tasty little sour, just a tad vinegary but hugely drinkable.

Thanks for sharing, Jason! The beer was the highlight of the evening. It pours to a deep mahogany body that is extremely hazy with a creamy dark tan head. The aroma is sour. Things like rhubarb and currants. Elderberry like St. Germain. The flavor is very tart with rhubarb, currants, Flemish yeasts, and acetic sourness. The palate is rich and medium bodied. Tart and acidic. A little aceticness. Amazing beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Poured deep purply-brown with a well-retained medium beige head. The aroma picked up sour berries, oak, and layers of yummy currants over caramel and chocolatey malts. The flavor found sour oak, currants, and cherries throughout, with floral and lesser metallic accents.. berry meat and some chocolate malt at the core.. sour finish with oak, berries, and a little fruity funk. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. sour and bracing.. good feel and flow.

Draft. Dark red, pink-white head. Nose and taste are vinegar and sour cherries, like a typical Flemish sour. Not overly sweet. Tart finish.

pours a murky brownish orange with a thin white head. Aroma of vinegar, citrus, berries and funky yeast. Taste follows, really sour and funky. Nice citrus acidity as well as funky yeast. This beer really tastes of St. Somewhere and ccb. not bad

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark unclear in color with a velvety peach pink carnation head. The aroma brings the wild yeast and black currants very pungent in the nose, a hint of nail polish from the yeast that was a lot stronger when this was fresh. The flavor brings the black currants, hibiscus, and wild yeast with a sour, tart and fruity ending. The body is a bit overcarbonated, nothing a few swirls can’t fix.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Pours muddy brown, almost dark pink in light. Off white cap, retention is great - just a weird color
S: Sourness immediately, light apple vinegar, brown sugar, caramel, lots of malts. Nail polish remover kinda threw me off, but when you swirl this beer around it really hits you!
T: Puckeringly sour, but not so much as others I’ve tried recently. Vinegar, fruit, nail polish remover, brown sugar and very malt heavy flavor. Pretty balanced
MF/O: smooth feel, creamy finish, carbonation is spot on...not bad by any means, but unrefined - more like a Flanders than a wild ale
Lowest ever CCB score for me is a B-??
