Pours a lightish purple color with a medium whitish-pink head that goes down quickly. Scent is AMAZING. Great blend of funk and fruit. Lovely berry aromas...blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, and then some nice earthy funkiness. Just the slightest hint of aged cheese. Good amount of oak and wood with some acidic aromas as well. Taste is just as it smells, just less funky. Lovely berry flavors, but keeping it perfectly soured. Nice puckering barnyard characteristics with sweet berries and fruit flavors. Good amount of oak as well. Mouthfeel is puckering and nicely carbonated. Drinkability is very high. This is probably my favorite CS beer. Very delicious and memorable.

Bottle 460/857. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark purple with a thin white layer of head. The nose has ripe fruity blackberry syrup followed by notes of boysenberry and black cherries. Some earth comes in at the back along with oak and vinegar. The taste starts of with acidic tartness paired with tons of blackberry. The unit ranges from earthy to some candied qualities at the end. The taste is incredibly complex and delicious. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, a delicious fruited sour. The blackberry makes for a unique offering.
