Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy golden color ale with a small white foamy head with limited retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light vinous notes also noticeable. Taste is a bit of a mess with limited cohesion and no sense of direction. Tart notes are easily distinguishable with Chardonnay notes not nearly as noticeable. Body is light with very low carbonation. I either got a bad bottle and just don’t enjoy this beer.

Draft serving at the old taproom into a snifter, reviewed from notes. Hazy, yellow to orange in color with a light, fading head. Tart green fruits - grape, citrus, apple - make for an acidic character with a lightly flavored malt backbone. Dry with touches of oak. Moderate carbonation with a crisp, lighter mouthfeel. Hay, bread, lemon. Quite simple and refreshingly tart.

Wow...just wow. As a member of the 1st CS Reserve Society that did not renew, I am kicking myself right now. Been letting this beer sit in the cellar until now...
Bam! Fresh citrus fruit, melon, oak, funk...complex, delicious.
Great finish, as the flavor never really dissipates and goes on and on. Does not have the "cheesy"/vomit character that some CS beers do. Very clean and crisp, yet funky, complex and fruity. Not overly sour, just the right amount to give a pucker and keep one coming back for more.
Well done...really, this is a phenomenal beer.
