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.

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.

bottle at home - B2 2013. Pours hazy brown with a light red hue. Nearly no head. Dee oaky nose yet with loads of lactic yoghurt aromas. Overly acidic body, flat and dull. Nearly no other taste but yoghurt. Bummer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Superdecent all the way, but seems bit boring. Lovely fruitiness, dark fruits, grapes, plums, cherries, raisins, berries, oak, leather (?), light caramel. Bit overpowering sourness. Lovely drink, but I would prefere others from same genre
