DalzAle (1966) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Woodchopper on BA! Light purple pour, light blackberry nose with an average amount of carbonation. Flavor was pleasantly tart wood, hints of citrus and some barely noticeable blackberry. Decent beer.

Bottleshare thanks to DrewFace. Pours a ruby red, not much white head. Aroma isn稚 that sour, hint of funkiness and fruit. Taste is light, fruity, a bit funky. As a wise man once said, what more can I say that u don稚 already know.

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.

Bottle (375 ml). From Mark, thanks! Slightly hazy bright red with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is of bright fruits (berries) along brettanomyces, light funk, oak and light cheesy notes. Taste is also of bright berries with brettanomyces, nice tartness, oak and hints of yogurt. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. Very good sour. Decent complexity, but mostly great drinkability. Really enjoyable. One of my favorite from Crooked Stave so far.

mathieuc (1185) - Qu饕ec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle shared by Tommy, thanks! Pours a nice cherry red with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of cherries and just really fruity. Taste is fruity, acidity level pretty good (not abrasive/harsh). Cherries again but they might have been blackberries too. Body was light, carbonation medium and mouthfeel juicy. Nice one!

Finally! I'm am so psyched to try a stave of quality that once was. No diacetyl. And so good. A - pours a beautiful blackberry juice purple blue with very little head. S - such a nice nose. Funky fruity sweet berries and bell pepper. Much like a de garde. Cheese, yogurt, nice yeast, Brett's. Rose petals and bell pepper. The nose may be the best from stave yet. M - tart and sweet. Watery mf, no carb and a limp body. T - the taste is so subtle and delicate, follow the nose but adds. nice funky cheesy fruity goodness. Bell pepper and blackberry jam lead the nose. Notes of lemon juice, powdered sugar, rose petals, dusty Brett's, and a note of prickly pear tuna and dragon fruit. O - maybe the second best stave our there (after persica b1) truly. The the lack of carb does take away a little, from an otherwise fantastic beer.

Had at a share: pours a raspberry like red with pink head. Raspberry, tartness, blackberry, and oak on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.
