Deep purple-maroon hue body; splotches of white foam scatter on the surface and attach themselves to my glass.

Funky, fruity aroma surprised me with its bold yeast presence. Dry, blankety, plenty of Brett, crushed blackberry essence. Smooth carb on the palate, juicy fruit, sourness is perfectly balanced. Excellent.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy purple with no head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong brett and blackberry, oak. Thin mouthfeel with sour blackberry and light brett with lingering dry finish. Really enjoyed this one off.

At my place with Taylor, Matt, Jacob. Pours rose red, almost no head. Aroma is tart, raspberry, jammy plumb, beautiful soft fruit flavors that are awesome. Taste is beautiful refined raspberries, blackberries, tang, hint of orange, very low acidity that makes it really drinkable. soft and awesome, love it.

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.

Bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a somewhat hazy reddish blackberry with off-white lacing. Smells good too; fruity and funky with a notable raspberry presence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer!

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12.7oz bottle shared by alexsdad06. Hazy, dark raspberry kind of purple color, looks cool. Little ring of white head. Awesome oaky tart fruity berry aroma. Kind of floral. Great nose. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Great light sour tart taste, light sweet. Very enjoyable, fantastic sour. Great one to end a tasting of heavy beers with.

Tmoney99 (11093) - 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.
