Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks again to Bill and Paul for the tag team here. Hazy deep reddish amber beer, little pale tan head. Light crispy palate, dry. Thin creamy malt. Nice winey sourness and tangy red berry fruits. Again a slight Flemish red vibe here. Semi dry finish.

375ml bottle, thanks Aaron. Pours a deep, reddish brown color with a tan head that fades to some bubbles around the glass. Aroma is earthy, yeast, oak, a little nutty. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sour, oak, vanilla, nutty, earthy, grassy, with a light sour finish. A nice sour brown ale. Needs just a touch more sweetness to balance it out.

Thanks Chad. Not a fan of Oud Bruin style but this was different. Cherries, vanilla, banana and oak. Smelled sweet and fruity. finishes with a tart aftertaste that really lingers for a while. Stoked to be getting more of these.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Big thanks to the back of Bill’s car, and to Paul. Pours deep amber with a creamy, tan head. Nose suggests hefty sourness, some sweat and vinegar. Strong but balanced sourness in the flavor, moderate sweetness, some dried berries. Light bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Clean finish, some dry berries, good fruity tang, light acidity, light funk. Really nice.

PhillyCraft (3316) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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.

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.
