375 ml bottle shared by Mark- thanks again, Mark! Wow, first rating. And I’m not even a member. Pours a cloudy ruby color with some scattered bubbles that don’t accumulate into a head. Aroma of berries, mineral notes, florals, funk, and sour mash. Flavor of blackberries, tart grapes, sourdough, and some oaky funk. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice sour. AcctError236499 (226) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle – thanks Steve_0 for being an awesome trustee. Aroma is moderately fruity, with delicate notes of seedy blackberries, some plum and grape. Not as much brett funk as the other Cellar Reserve beers in this release, but some pokes through over the sweet aroma - light oak too. The beer pours a beautiful deep red with a purple tint, small head that leaves very small lacing and small legs. Taste follows the aroma pretty well, with more fruit than brett funk, very light acidic notes, some wood astringency.. The flavor is mostly jammy berries/dark grape skins. Body is surprisingly light, with a semi tart and dry finish. I think maybe it needs more time if you’re into the funky or super sour versions of L’Brett. It is pretty refreshing and a nice break from the cheek turners. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Thanks Dakine! Red/purple pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sourness and oak. Taste is sour, oak/dryness. It has a refreshing and cleansing mouth feel. Little sweetness from the blackberries in the background. Layered, complex and tasty. Yum! DrewFace (969) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Mostly clear darker amber reddish color, thin white head. Lightly sweet, light tart, malty, some funky barnyardy notes. Semisweet, smooth, light funky barnyard notes, lots of the blackberry and mild tartness. Very light and refreshing overall. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2014
