Bittleshare thanks to DrewFace. Nose full of tart lacto and sourness sensation. Brownish reddish muddy pour. Taste is pretty puckering with some cherry notes. Not quite pie like but pretty darn tasty. Drying and puckering thru the finish.

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at the parentals, split with my wife. Pour is murky brown with a small tan-colored head and good lacing. Sweet cherry pie, graham crackers, cinnamon, red hots, caramelly, toffee, oaky, somewhat tannic, and nutmeg in the aroma. Taste is sweet cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, spice, pie crust, sweet caramel, big wood, and red wine with a medium tart finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-soft carbonation. This is cherry pie all the way and is very reminiscent of Cable Car Kriek. Solid.

murky chestnut, wispy white head. Berry and oak nose, light manure, moderate sour berry arsenic. Oily flavor, light seeds and berry, moderately acetic through the sticky, thin finish, bit of dessert crust. Fruity sour mix, desert and creamy.

2013 Cellar Reserve. Enjoyed at fridge temp and allowed to warm up.

A - Pours a murky brown with a lot of cherry red. It looks like a cloudy cherry cocktail in the glass.

S - Really nice nose. Huge bouquet of cherry jam with vanilla, oak and toffee.

T - This is really nice. Itís sweet, just enough booziness from whiskey. Has a lot of lambic kriek notes but without the depth. Bigger sip and Iím getting more grape skin and dried cranberries.

M - Well done on the bottle carb. Nice mouthfeel but not exploding with CO2

O - This is a nice beer. Really a front funner for favorite CS beer this year.

DrSilverworm (6575) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2013
375ml bottle, shared by seeswo. Bottled 9/2013. Hazy dark brown red color. Thin off-white head. Good spread and dots of lace. Awesome cherry, light subtle bourbon barrel character. You get more spicy woody notes than vanilla here, which works very well with the cherry character. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation. Good tart taste, nice sweetness too. Very tasty stuff. Perfect balance of big fruit, light spice, moderate tartness, and bigger thicker body. Delicious.
