Art (3121) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Hazy reddish brown pour. Aromas of slight vinegar lemon and cherry. Not as big cherry as some other CS cherry beers. Slight bourbon and dark fruits too but really complex. Taste is medium high sourness. The perfect level that I have grown to expect from CS.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle @ 5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Thanks, Paul! Russet red pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty rich and sweet. Red berry mash, toasted grain and caramelized bread sweetness. A touch of heat from the barrel. Taste is a bit sharper, tart. Some vanilla and caramel sweetness offsets soured raspberry mash. Woody funk. Abrupt finish. Medium body, active carbonation. OK, but I preferred the non-BBA edition.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Deep amber colored pour with a short lived off-white head. Smells like a mix of red wine vinegar, cherry juice, and lemons. A lot like Cuvee de Tomme or Oude Tart with Cherries. Slight cola sweetness and plenty of cherry pie. The flavor intensely sour and tannic. Tons of fruit skin and oak. Very sour, particularly on the finish. Some cherry pie sweetenss. Quite acidic.

Bottle as shown, thanks J Mo .. . Dark ruby .. Solid foam .. Cherry skin, flesh, barrel wood, and fruit juice concentrate.. Mouth has a slight pucker .. Easy finish .. This was also a bit better fresh .. . . Crooked stove would have been a funnier brewery name

Bottle shared at the 5K/7.5K/10K tasting - who has a 7.5K tasting? big thanks to Bropey 7.5K guy - a bro fo sho, 30/12/14. Dark chestnut brown with a decent beige covering that dissipates to spotting and edgework. Nose is tangy cherries, funk, musty wood, tarte red berry compote, straw. Taste comprises soured cherry, tangy cherry skin, funk, light acidity, pitted cherry, red berry mash, dank straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light acidity. Nice easy drinking sour red, good balance, solid stuff.

gEUS (1723) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle at home - brewed September 2013. Pours dark red amber with a tiny whitish head with pink hue. straight "puttekesgeur" (yea, you can look that up, it’s Flemish) and sweet cherries. Wood as well. Ouch on the body: straight lactobacillus & pediococcus attack - I guess the beer is too old already, fruit sour kicks a bit back but overall, this makes one’s (tooth) fillings fall out immediately... taste is cherries and cherry stalk green flavour...

bursprak (2500) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Waxed bottle split two ways. Burgundy pour with a small white head that quickly disappears. Loads of red berries, cranberries, tart cherries, some light balsamico, leather and vanilla.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 10/27/13 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours brown with an amber hue, and a thin tan head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is sour with some dark malt, a great natural cherry aroma, and a bunch of funk. The flavor is all about the sour funk, cherry, and an added touch of vanilla, with the dark malt taking a back seat but adding to the complexity. The body is medium and tannic with light carbonation and a long sour cherry, with touches of dark malt and vanilla oak finish.

slight brown pinkish head fades fast. deep red brown colour. aroma is cherries, sourish, woody and vanilla. taste is cherries, very citric acid forward, vanilla with a very sour finish. medium body and carbonation. too one-dimensional on the citric sourness for me. bottle 35,5cl / 2013 edition
