Pours reddish brown with nice medium off white head and sporadic lacing. Aromas and taste of cherry funk, oak barrel, saison yeast, super tart, horse, and lightly acidic fruits. Medium body. Lots of complexity here. Top notch sour ale from America.

brystmar (1234) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Burgundy, sour oak barrels, yeast, dark fruits on the nose. Follows to the taste, complex with spiciness on the palate, dark fruit again, impeccable blend. Plus it's waxed! I'm really liking Crooked Stave these days.

DrSilverworm (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2013
375ml bottle, shared by brew3crew. My pour was towards the end part of the bottle. Pretty hazy brown color, kind of amber. Thin light khaki head, good spread of lace. Dark fruit, kind of oaky. Smooth, light carbonation, kind of creamy. Nice lighter tart taste. Good stuff

Waxed bottle to snifter (anks brew3crew). Looks good; a cloudy brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes good too; tart with notes of malt and funk. Nice and lively on the palate. Good beer!

Flavor of sour apple, vinegar, malt, a little bread. Big, tart finish. Full and acetic. Nice Flanders.

Huge thanks to Bill for picking these up for me. Served in my new Crooked Stave tulip, also courtesy of Bill. Mild malt and toast notes in the nose behind lactic acid character. Faint earthiness. No malt character in flavor. Mild fruit. Very nice.
