Beaver (1311) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2013
750 ml bottle, brewed on 1/10/10. Pours dark ruby amber with a fizzy off white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is a nice blend of sweet candy sugary malts and tart sour raspberries and vinous alcohol. There is a slight note of butyric acid (vomit).

The flavor is sweet candy sugar with a huge acidic tart/sour raspberry flavor. There’s some woody notes and vinous alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little thin and watery with low, but sharp, carbonation.

Overall, tastes a little sweet / sour like Duchesse, but with a much bigger tart sourness that overwhelms the sweet - almost a little too much, but fun.

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

PhillyCraft (3322) - 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 (2523) - 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.

750ml bottle shared by Dean. Poured a muddy light brown with a smaller white head. Aroma is sour, raspberry, medicinal. Flavor is sour, tart, raspberry and some cherry. Medium body that is very very lightly acidic and a long lingering tartness. Flavor is the same as the aroma, nicely sour, raspberry and lemons. Good but so sour no real brett coming through.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2014
Batch 60. Bra tryck. Får initialt en saisonkänsla av doften. Lite fruktig. Sur och knäckebröd i eftersmaken. Tunn. Härlig syra och frisk. Kul med en 100% bretta. Ingen beska.
