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!

On tap at Churchkey during CBC week. Pours a translucent, mahogany amber with very little white head. Big, sour, Flanders nose, prunes, bitter greens, red wine vinegar, slightly vinous, apple cider. 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.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 The beer is hazy and light brown with a small head. The aroma brings oak, sour tones, barrels. Smells nice tastes nice. Like a Flanders oud bruin. The amber base is a nice change of pace. A bit of cherry with moderate sourness and pleasant barrel character. Acetic finish with some lip smacking goodness. Crooked Stave is churning out some tasty stuff these days. Recommended.

Bottle (I think) at Churchkey for the Craft Brewers Conference. Poured a dark ruby color with a off-white head. Aroma was some serious nice sour, tart notes - fruits. Flavor was nice barrel, red wine notes. Plenty of lactic notes. This was great - highly drinkable and highly enjoyable. I’ll be on the lookout for this one again. Really liked this one.

375mL poured at Churchkey for CBC. Pours a deep haze ruby looking dark brown in the glass. Medium tan foam. Nose is excellent Flemish red/oud brune (my favorite style): cinnamon, red wine, flank steak, fat, muted bourbon barrel, mild acetic spice (good for style), light vanilla. Spot on. Taste is also spot on like Oerbier Reserva: cranberry, tannic berry skins/red wine, bright acid, lactic lime. Vinous, fresh. Easy to love. Fantastic for style.
