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 (1492) - 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.

lefossoyeur (510) - 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.

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.

Doofgoblin (451) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2014
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.

GothGargoyle (1841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
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.

drowland (7103) - Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2014
9/13/14. Shared at the Aardwolf anniversary party by rdixon77. Red pour with a nice small khaki head. The first whiff tells you this puppy is sour... acidic, tart, fruity, just a hint of vinegar, some oak wafting up. Nice flavor, very sour, acidic, lightly fruity, oak melding well with some vanilla and wood, that sort of smarties American sour aspect going on, quite sour. Yum.
