3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brownish ruby red pour with a 1 finger head that fades to a messy, foamy ring. Aroma is packed with red grapes and dark fruit. Moderate leathery/barnyard brett too. Tastes like dry cherry skins, apple skins, red wine and light barnyard. Very acidic. Light to moderate sourness. Good but not great.

40th Crooked Stave beer, 5,000th rating. Deep dark ruby brown with an off-white ring of foam around the edge. Lots of honey and brandy barrel and something like plums on the nose. Amazing flavor with dark sweet Belgian malts, plum and dates, with a twangy sour flavor that’s not puckering but kinda close. Lovely brandywine and oak barrel flavors on the funky and dryish finish. Lots of dark Belgian sweetness throughout. Very tasty.
