Base sour is a great sour. Dark rich with a white ring of a head. Aroma a little grapy. Full mouthfeel. Better than a Flanders. A sweet brett finish. Thanks Jason B

Enjoyable. Sour fruit aroma and somewhat funky. Burgundy color with a lot of bubbles. Very small head. Watery and smooth palate. It also coated the mouth. Sour hits you first but mellows with the more you drink. There is some malt essence and wood. I tasted cherry as well with a full and dry finish. Complex but not a go to beer for me.

JBPortland (778) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 9, 2014
375ml bottle (b2) thanks to adnielsen! Pours dark brownish red with small thin head. Nose is tangy tart red grape, molasses, fruity dark cherry, light funk. Taste is tart woody dark fruit and cherry, molasses, brown sugar, maple, funk. Finish is tart semi-sweet maple and molasses notes mingling with some flanders-esque dank woody fruit flavors. Excellent!

mcberko (6420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 12.7 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a deep dark mahogany with barely any head. Nose is very sour, with complex oak barrels, very tart dark fruits, wood and vinous notes. Flavour brings out lots of oak, very dry red wine, tart dry dark fruits, and more of the woody vinous notes. Slightly vinegary, very vinous and oaky on the finish. Not quite as enjoyable as the Origins Grand Cru, but still great nonetheless.

This one poured a murky brown with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, sour apples, light funk, and brown sugar. Falvor was light smoke and brown sugar, medium tartness and light oaky funkiness. Pretty solid.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of dark malts, sourness/ tart notes, chocolate, oak and vanilla, and some spices and dark fruits. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. Another great CS beer.

popery (1418) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a deep burgundy-brown color. Looks pretty clear. Smallish light beige head, fairly fizzy. The bubbles die away to not much after a minute or two. Aroma is sour and wood with a touch of funk. I was expecting a more acidic beer, and while it does trend that way a tad, this beer has a pretty nice balance of sour, wild flavors. There’s a lot of sour fruit knocking around. Grapes, blackberries, peaches, cranberries, raspberries, apricots. While the funk is relatively mild, it does contribute and give the beer some depth. Best of all, there’s none of that bile note that plagues so many American sours (at least for me). Solid woodiness and bretty funk. The taste has a pretty good acid bite running throughout. There’s some soured maltiness, giving the beer a bit of body. Fairly vinous. A bit harsher than the aroma but it still doesn’t go overboard. Quite dry. Light body. Very good beer.
