BMan1113VR (7896) - 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.

AdamJackson (3341) - 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.

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.

Ratman197 (10710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2014
375 ml bottle poured a clear reddish purple with a lingering ring of lavender foam. Aromas of straw, barnyard, blackberry and sour citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of sour citrus, blackberry and light straw with a crisp dry lingering tart citrus finish.

sherm1016 (1219) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2014
375ml bottle, thanks Aaron! Pours a purplish brown color with a white head that fades to bubbles around the edge. Aroma is oaky, citrus fruit, lemon. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sour, oak, some light berry fruit, blackberry, hay, with a light sour finish. The blackberry is a bit lost, but otherwise a very nice sour ale.

mcberko (8496) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a clear ruby red with a small beige head. Aroma brings out potent tart blackberries and some brett. Flavour is very similar, though the brett is perhaps more dominant than the nose suggests. Super fruity, jammy, and fairly bretty. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

MacBoost (1452) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a purple color with almost no head. Aromas of oaked funk, sour berries. Taste is dry and sour. Not bracingly bitter, but it has a nice little bite. Flavors of unripened blackberries, oak and moss. Decent carbonation leaves a slight prickle on the tongue. Finishes sweaty and dry. Did this side by side with Almanac Farmer痴 Reserve Pluot and this beer lost hands down.

TXBadger (1761) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Had at a share: pours a raspberry like red with pink head. Raspberry, tartness, blackberry, and oak on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.

adnielsen (9891) - 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.

Sammy (9268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Pours dark red like a good red wine. Aroma of blackberry and elderberries, with the trademark sour yeast. Active carbonation, from 2013 cellar. Thick rich dark berry taste, significantly tart. Fruit and vitamins of the night.Thanks Jason B.
