ineedbeer (1221) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Poured from a bottle courtesy of popery. Aroma is rather fruity with a nice raspberry note. Some medium oak notes with a nice red wine character. Pours a murky, reddish brown with a medium sized, tan head that lingers for a bit. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with medium light raspberry notes. Some medium red wine notes with light oak. Light bitterness. Malt is a bit flabby and the raspberry is fading some. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer but its aged a bit past its prime. Raspberry is still fairly present. Nice red wine and oak notes.

Bottle as shown. Pours a hazy amber with small off white head. The aroma is leather, funk, oak, raspberry, brett. Thin mouth, tart, stone fruit, oak, brett, funky, really enjoyed this one.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 10/27/13 from a waxed and capped 750mL bottle that I got as a member of the first Cellar Reserve. Pours hazy auburn with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is super funky brett with tons of raspberry, very vinous, with some chocolate and a touch of nutty vanilla oak. The flavor is nicely sour with tons of raspberry, red wine, oak, and a touch of chocolate and vanilla. The body is just under medium with nice oak tannin, average carbonation and a long, very complex finish.

JBPortland (1183) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 4, 2014
750ml bottle huge thanks to adnielsen! Pours dark ruby red brown with a finger of head. Nose is pretty subtle, tart acidic dark cherry, musty oak, touches of vanilla, little bits of berry, little bit of vinegar but in the classic Flanders way. Taste is pretty true to the nose, not a lot of fruit left a tthis point but still a nice funky Flanders-esque sour red, tasty oaky vanilla and dark fruits. It has become pretty acidic but stops just short of being a real throat-burner. Finish is sweet and sour mixed dark cherry and soft berry with light funky wet wood and oaky tartness. A real fun beer to open considering its place in craft history. Pretty tasty too!

Smooth. Not overly tart. Nice balance. What all sours should strive for. I wish I had bought more than 2.

PhillyCraft (3963) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle, says 8 percent.huge, huge, thanks to Al for cracking this beauty. Pours plum with small to medium off white head, light lace if any. Sniffing this brings on some raspberry cheesecake, oaky tannins, lemons and dank hops. Flavor is unreal raspberry purée, tart cherries, sour butthole, white grapes, brett, and lactic funk. Medium in body, puckery and ultra salivating tart finish. Reminds me of the old framboise for the cure. Amazing shit.

pineypower (2734) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours out a strange brownish/reddish color with not much of a head. Aroma is of lots of berries, funky tart fruit, wood, jam and some light vinegar notes. Taste is complex, tart fruit, raspberry, cherries, light sweetness lingerings before some acidic tartness, mild vinegar, oak, sourness. Not much of a bretty profile, more on the straight up sour/tart side, none the less another great beer from CS.
