Pours a ruby purple color with pink head. Aromas are berries, sulfur, wheat, and bready malts. Taste is fruity tart and match heads. I guess I like match heads.

gEUS (1392) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2015
compared d単lum next to L達rett d達lackberry - both 2013 vintages. Plum: pours pinkish light red, no head whatsoever. Aroma of cherries, light stewed plum funk, blood orange juice. Light body, lightly sour, some residual fruit sweetness. Taste is a bit bland, but with subtle cherry notes. Nice beer. 3.6/5 BlackBerry: pours cloudy dark ruby red: incredibly and subtle cassis/BlackBerry aroma, with a clear cherry touch to it as well. Body is rounder than the d単lum, and a tad funkier. 3.9/5

375 ml bottle shared by Mark- thanks again, Mark! Wow, first rating. And I知 not even a member. Pours a cloudy ruby color with some scattered bubbles that don稚 accumulate into a head. Aroma of berries, mineral notes, florals, funk, and sour mash. Flavor of blackberries, tart grapes, sourdough, and some oaky funk. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice sour.

Bottle thanks Steve_0 for being an awesome trustee. Aroma is moderately fruity, with delicate notes of seedy blackberries, some plum and grape. Not as much brett funk as the other Cellar Reserve beers in this release, but some pokes through over the sweet aroma - light oak too. The beer pours a beautiful deep red with a purple tint, small head that leaves very small lacing and small legs. Taste follows the aroma pretty well, with more fruit than brett funk, very light acidic notes, some wood astringency.. The flavor is mostly jammy berries/dark grape skins. Body is surprisingly light, with a semi tart and dry finish. I think maybe it needs more time if you池e into the funky or super sour versions of L達rett. It is pretty refreshing and a nice break from the cheek turners.

jbeatty (1181) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle, 11/3/2013. Pours purplish red, opaque, subtle pinkish white head fades to fizzy bubbles on the surface, thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is blackberry, grape, lightly jammy, light tartness with baryard notes, touch of brett with wood. Taste is moderately fruity dark berries, mild tartness with earthy oak, funk, long fruity aftertaste. Medium body, coats the tongue. Pretty nice.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark reddish purple pour with thin to no off white head, aroma brought notes of big berry, blackberry, tart raspberry, nice oak, vanilla, slight bretty notes, hints of tropical fruit and doughy notes, pretty nice. Taste is not as tart as I thought, but nice red and dark berry, nice lemon, biscuit, bready notes, slight earth, grassy notes, hints of slight tart note, finishing fairly bitter, slightly tart, hints of more berry.

CanIHave4Beers (3535) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a hazy purple with a small head and some spotty lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bretty & berry forward, lots of tart fruit in the aroma, some seedy berry jam and some dustiness. Pungent & inviting.

The flavor is tart with a lot of seedy raspberry and blackberry flavors... it痴 nicely sour, very dry and has nice earthy notes. I知 a sucker for berries presented in this manner, so this is right up my alley.



I don稚 believe that this is a shelf beer.

Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours hazy purple amber with a thin tan head. Nose is sour and tart, with red grape, yogurt, and lemon. Taste is real yogurty, lightly fruity, grape and berry, with lemon and medium tartness. Pretty gentle, with medium and mellow carbonation.
