bottle. deep red/brown with a small beige head. tart red fruits in aroma, light brett character. flavor has notes of sour red berries, oak. burnt bread and caramel in the finish. very dry. i prefer the sour reds/browns with a little more body and sweetness, otherwise its a very nice beer, very drinkable, and approachable.

That1Guy (1963) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle crushed with TheRon. Reddish brown pour with a off-white head with some lacing. Do you like beer with your vinegar? So acetic. Little undercarbed. Tart but not sour. Overall underwhelming.

Duchammer (68) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Poured brownish red with a tan head. Aroma had alot of lacto and mild fruits in the nose. Taste was very tart lactic tase with little hints of dark stone fruit. I don’t get to much oak in this beer.

Meddler303 (2) - - DEC 15, 2014 does not count
Given the brewery I found this beer to be a total disappointment, especially for the $12-13 price tag. Totally void of any depth. Tastes like candied vinegar and that’s literally it. And this is coming from a huge crooked stave fan. They can do better than this.

bursprak (763) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Enjoyed in stemware. Pour is burgundy with a tiny head that fades fairly quick. Loads of red berries, light tartness, some vanilla, leather, tart cherries. Another well made beer from CS that is up there with the Belgian sours.

Keir (156) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2014
2013, batch 2. Deep brownish red with large bubble head. Nose of sour dark fruit, a hint of smoke, wood, and citrus. Tastes of sour prunes, acidic, wood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lefossoyeur (469) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Pour slightly cloudy golden orange, no head. Herbal aromas with fennel dominating the mix. Lightly sour, very low carbonation, anise and fennel flavours, very thin palate, refreshing. Simple straightforward sour ale.

Danyel (1073) - Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a little red hues, off- white head. Aroma of dark fruits, wild yeast, nutty, vanilla, wood. Taste is smooth, light sour, nice wood flavor, medium-boded, crisp. Overall, very good.

Salmoniform (999) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Reddish brown hue with fizzy tan head. Aroma is lactic, plum, cherry, oak. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tartness throughout. Overall this is a great brew.
