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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
