Draft at the Barrel Cellar. Pours a hazed pale gold with a small white head with larger bubbles. The aroma is super funky, with lemon, orange, apricot, oak, herbs, and spices. Some bready malts and vinous notes, as well. Flavor of lemon, oak, grass, sawdust, funk, apricot, peach, and subtle spice. Tart and funky, with moderate to medium carbonation and a light to medium body. Wow, this was excellent.

Probably my second favorite beer by CS. Tons of vinous grapey flavors with some oak, funky brett, lactic tartness, and the typical sulfuric extra funky crooked stave yeast. The last firework always gets put in the tube upside down.

Just an outstanding beer. Tartness is light but evident. Slight Saison aroma but not as funky as Vielle. Very drinkable and now one of my favorites.

Bottle: Thanks Joes: Served in a Chouffe glass: Small to medium off white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow orange colored beer. Aromas of yeast, brett, grapes, barnyard, wood, cheese, hay, sour, reminds me a bit of Cantillon. Flavours of tart, yeast, hay, grapes and light grapefruit, light bitter, wood, floral herbs, brett, lovely! Tart, wood and yeast. Yummi! Aftertaste is a mix of bitters and sours/tart, yeast, fruit, wood and some floral tones. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium honey orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that reduced quickly to a thin layer of foam that was left lying on top, thus producing some really nice sheets of lace. The aroma had kind of funky odor to it and was of a straw like malt, a citrus hop and a barnyard scented yeast with notes of orange, tangerine, ripe peaches, apricot, a touch of oak and a mild tartness. The taste was sweet and malty with a nice notes of orange, apricot and hints of citrus from the start, and had a strong yeasty sour finish with just a light hint of a woody fruit taste at the end. The flavor lasted a wonderfully long time allowing for the melding of flavors to relax on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just a tad beyond light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall an exceptionally tasty and refreshing brew, one with a nice fruity sour flavor that most definitely left you wanting more. www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
