Bottle at the parentals, split with the Wife. Pour is a beautifully purplish-maroon color with very little head, if any. Funky, cheesy, slightly acidic, jammy, raspberries, blackberries, urine, somewhat horsey, and doughy aroma. Taste is sweet fruity, very tart, plummy, red grapes, oak, dark berries, bkueberries, green apples, and red wine vingear - though not overly acidic. Light body with medium carbonation. A very sour beer, that maintains balance from the sweetness of the fruit. Well done.

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.

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!

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.

Pours a ruby purple color with pink head. Aromas are berries, sulfur, wheat, and bready malts. Taste is fruity tart and match heads. I guess I like match heads.

375 ml bottle shared by Mark- thanks again, Mark! Wow, first rating. And I知 not even a member. Pours a cloudy ruby color with some scattered bubbles that don稚 accumulate into a head. Aroma of berries, mineral notes, florals, funk, and sour mash. Flavor of blackberries, tart grapes, sourdough, and some oaky funk. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice sour.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark reddish purple pour with thin to no off white head, aroma brought notes of big berry, blackberry, tart raspberry, nice oak, vanilla, slight bretty notes, hints of tropical fruit and doughy notes, pretty nice. Taste is not as tart as I thought, but nice red and dark berry, nice lemon, biscuit, bready notes, slight earth, grassy notes, hints of slight tart note, finishing fairly bitter, slightly tart, hints of more berry.
