Pours a hazy brown. Oak and fruity aroma with a hint of funk. Moderate sourness is rounded by some sweeter malt and raisin qualities. Light body with just a bit of carbonation. A great sour.

Bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy ruddy brown with a light tan head. Aroma is sour and ruddily grapey. Med body, possibly better. Flavor is red grape, sour, astringent oak. That is so inadequate, but the best I can describe. This doesn’t seem brett, more like lambicus. But whatever, it is marvelously tasty. Get it if you can. Further note: After an hour or two this seems to be very sourly cherry. Getting better all the time.

On tap at Crooked Stave. Pours dark brown with a modest beige head and a treacle and red wine aroma. There is a delicious sour brown flavor that flows smoothly to the oak finish.

UncleKorm (727) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2014
On tap at brewery, poured a ruby brown hue w/ big fizzy head diminishing to a ring w broken lacing. Mod to bold wine aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold sour finish. Taste is a deep and complex Burgandy and oak supported by the yeast. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Deep ruby tinted body with a muddy brown colour and a thick two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of sour grapes, hay and a lot of funk - very nice and super pungent. Medium-bodied; Strong sour grape and pear flavour with a lot of apples, hay, grass and a big kick of prunes - very nice. Aftertaste shows a ton of soured notes with the oak and grapes really coming out at the end - very nice. Overall, an amazing beer with a ridiculous complexity and a very nice sour finish that goes great. I sampled this taster on draught here at the brewpub for US$4.00 on 07-June-2014.

Draft at the Source. Burgundy pour with a thin tan head. Red wine aroma with an oak aged hint. Light sourness with a burgundy hit. Amazing balance. Such a great sour.

Dogbrick (7570) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 011: Crooked Stave-tastic 01 on 05/02/2014. Pours a dark mahogany color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, oak and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart cherry, raspberry, oaky vanilla and roast malt. The finish is tart with an oak and dark fruit aftertaste. Good brew all around.

BoostIPA (1181) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014
Welp, pours a ron burgundy color with a small off white head. Pretty intense funky aroma. Not sour smelling, just pure bacterial funk. Urinary tract infections coupled with grandmas bedsores oozing with puss. Funky. Taste is dry and lightly tart with some funk. Flavors of oak, moss and sour dark fruit. Finish is long and slightly sour, but with not much pucker. Pretty good, not their best.

Aroma is solid lemon, cherry, barrel. Appears dark red brown. Tannic. Full crazy sour. All in lemon. Cider aspects.
