Lukaduke (2038) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a purple color with two fingers of fizzy pink foam. The nose is lots of earthy berry, barnyard hay and some musky oak. The palate follows with a nice blackberry seltzer backbone that gains complexity from the musty barrel and imparts a touch of round toasted vanilla nuance that rounds out the acidity a bit and complements the dusty barnyard grain. Tasty !

keanex (1388) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle from a friend.
Appearance: Hazy raspberry colored body with a short and light pink head.
Aroma: Sort of sulfury with a mild sour blackberry presence.
Taste: Mildly sour, reminds me of an Atomic Warhead, but no substance beneath. The base is watery and the sourness doesn稚 do much to add to flavor, it痴 just sour to be sour.
Palate: Sort of flat.
Overall: I致e had three Crooked Stave beers, the other two were excellent. I知 not sure where this went wrong but this was very boring and the people I drank it with agreed. It tasted watery and generically sour. What a shame.

cpetrone84 (1330) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pour is dark pink with a bit of a haze to it and a light pink head. Nose has a lambic note to it, a bit of barnyard funk, slight metallic twang, strong raspberry fruit behind. Taste isn稚 quite as barnyard or as bright. Strong brett presence that gets a little muddled and brett is strong. Still a hint of barnyard, some dusty brett with a moderate amount of blackberry. Lighter body, fairly sour with a slightly puckering finish.
