Bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a somewhat hazy reddish blackberry with off-white lacing. Smells good too; fruity and funky with a notable raspberry presence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer!

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
375mL purple wax thanks to LtDan! Clear dark purple pour, weak pink foam. Nose is funky, juicy blackberry and blueberry. Rich, bright. Taste is a bit thin and soapy. Pretty bland in a way. Small soap and harsh acid. Hmm. No sourness/tartness. Almost like a muted blueberry Berliner.

Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to adnielsen for bringing the bottle. Pours a maroon color with white head. Fruity, metallic, blackberry aromas. Tart, blackberry, fruity flavors. Doesn稚 match the L達rett d単lum.

adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a reddish purple appearance with a pinkish head that dissipates pretty quickly. Cheesy, blackberry/blueberry, tannic/woody, vanilla aroma. Tangy, soda-like, light butter, vanilla woody, juicy dark berry flavor. A touch watery. Not nearly as sour or fruit forward as the plum release.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Purple pour with an off white head. Flavors of dusty yeast, berries, lemon peel, lacoto. Some yogurt flavors too. I think this one will do well with some age.

AdamJackson (2523) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2013
2013 batch, enjoyed 2-ways in stemmed wine glass.

A - Murky and deep purple in color.

S - Nose was tannic, ripe and musty. Sweet / tart but reminded me a lot of a blackberry reduction with tart lambic notes.

T - Pretty good. A lot more sour than any other L達rett beer from CS I致e had. A creamy backbone, lots of lactic acid but no traces of vinegar. The blackberries already being tart just made this a sour bomb.

M - Standard carbonation, medium, often champagne like with a swish.

O - Not my favorite of the CS beers but still quite nice and I知 glad to have more.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottles. Pours with a hazed, deep purple hued body with a small off-white head. Aromas are of funk first, damp leaves, shrubs, leathery, brett, lightly jammy and very dry blackberry. Fruity, mildly estery. Flavors are dry, lightly immature brett character (cheerios). Jammy, light wine barrel. Lively carbonation, medium bodied.
