this is s beer ive had a number of times now, and its different every time. ahh the beauty of wild yeast! the first couple of times, i was turned off by the intensity of the cinnamon and the perfumey nature of the hibiscus. i thought both were a little overdone, and that came at the expense of the beer itself. the sourness has always been there, but as its evolved in the bottle over time, its come a long way. i now get the beer first and the additives as highlights, which makes for a great and very unique combination. the cinnamon has calmed way down, and serves to further dry out an already extremely dry finish, and the hibiscus springboards off of the effervescent carbonation and really lightens this beer up and gives it a warm weather blooming sort of vibe. the yeast is bretty like a wild saison, floral too, but the sourness has amplified over time to where its got some real pleasant acidity on the back end. overall i like this beer a lot, especially what its become now, and look forward to finding another bottle sometime down the road to see where it goes from here. not much out there like this, thats for certain.

Pours a vibrant berry red, nearing magenta. Somewhat cloudy. Small off white head. After a minute or two, only a ring of bubbles with wisps across the surface remain. The aroma is a fruity mix of flavors. There's hibiscus along with blackberries, raspberries, lemons, apples and a fruity floral quality, not quite sure what to call it. I'm a little surprised to pick up some of the cinnamon, kinda expected it to have faded or dominated by the other flavors. Mild whiskey note. Some oak. The barrel mostly seems to contribute some fairly strong vanilla. The hibiscus/berries still are in control, but the vanilla adds some good sweetness. The taste is medium sour. Starts with berry and vanilla sweetness, before tarter berries and lemons take over. Oak in the finish. Not much funk but it's there a bit. Sourness seem mostly lactic. Overall, it's quite dry. Fairly effervescent at first, but it settles pretty quickly. Pretty light on the palate. Lingering lactic aftertaste with a medium pucker. Very good beer. I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one, but it's probably my second favorite from CS, after Batch #1.
