Tmoney99 (10566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear ruby color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, wood and berry aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

daknole (9050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Purple pour with an off white head. Flavors of dusty yeast, berries, lemon peel, lacoto. Some yogurt flavors too. I think this one will do well with some age.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a reddish purple appearance with a pinkish head that dissipates pretty quickly. Cheesy, blackberry/blueberry, tannic/woody, vanilla aroma. Tangy, soda-like, light butter, vanilla woody, juicy dark berry flavor. A touch watery. Not nearly as sour or fruit forward as the plum release.

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Pours dark red like a good red wine. Aroma of blackberry and elderberries, with the trademark sour yeast. Active carbonation, from 2013 cellar. Thick rich dark berry taste, significantly tart. Fruit and vitamins of the night.Thanks Jason B.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
375mL purple wax thanks to LtDan! Clear dark purple pour, weak pink foam. Nose is funky, juicy blackberry and blueberry. Rich, bright. Taste is a bit thin and soapy. Pretty bland in a way. Small soap and harsh acid. Hmm. No sourness/tartness. Almost like a muted blueberry Berliner.

Dogbrick (7956) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 011: Crooked Stave-tastic 01 on 05/02/2014. Hazy purplish-amber color with a medium pinkish-white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, oak and yeast. Light to medium body with a barnyard character and flavors of blackberry, funky yeast and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a berry and oak aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottles. Pours with a hazed, deep purple hued body with a small off-white head. Aromas are of funk first, damp leaves, shrubs, leathery, brett, lightly jammy and very dry blackberry. Fruity, mildly estery. Flavors are dry, lightly immature brett character (cheerios). Jammy, light wine barrel. Lively carbonation, medium bodied.
