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.

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.

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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent! An oak vinegar aroma is inviting. The taste is sour cherry with hints of Apple and rich sweet vinegar. The finish is a lasting sour with just a hint of bitterness. With low carbonation, this beer has a thin but deep sour fruit flavor that is really good. Overall, this is just an excellent showing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy reddish brown with a pale head. Aroma is ripe strawberries, dates, sour cherries, plums, red currants, hint of oak. Medium-light bodied, slightly vinous on the palate with a lightly tart fruity finish. Taste is light red wine, tart plum, red currants, light oak. Love how much of the burgundy has cone through, this is like a beer and wine hybrid with the best of both worlds.
