(375ml bottle) clear deep reddish brown with fine edge bubbles. Nose of yogurt, tart berry, wood barrel, lacto. Taste is even better than the nose, tart yogurt, medium tart cherry, Lacto, mild barrel character that’s well integrated, really easy to drink sour beer. Love the palate finish.

Very nice dark fruit, oaky aroma. Dark cherry. Taste is dark cherry, oak and get a burgundy finish. Really nice and complex. Almost a slight watery palate for how complex and strong the flavors are. Sour is maybe 6 of 10. Mostly lactic sour but has a bit of barnyard funk as well. Very complex and nice sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sour red...aroma if metal and copper..not good..but flavor of sour malt tartness bring thus beer to excellence. May be I should have let it sit. Malty sourness in flavor was a perfect balance. Breads yeasty and wet paper was great.

I was lucky to get this as an extra in a trade. My first from Crooked Stave. Pours out reddish brown. It smells sour, tannic and also some wood comes through. Taste is pretty complex, I noticed red fruit, lemon sourness and malty almost chocolate like flavors. Overall it´s a delicious dark sour beer with so many nuances that it shouldn´t work....but it does. I instantly retraded for a bunch of CS beers of the back of this one.

(Bue en fût sur place): Typique rouge des Flandres avec une forte cerise et une présence chocolatée très noire. Des minéraux insistent aussi pour faire parti du profil. Vraiment complexe et savoureux.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of sour tartness, fruits and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tartness. Very nice.

Pours a deep copper from the bottle with minimal ring of bubbly tan head. Aroma is nice tannic must, lactic sour, dark fruits. Taste follows with a big fruity sour middle, wine barrel tartness all over. Definitely another winner from crooked stave.
