onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Hazy rusty orange with a nice thick rocky head. Aroma is dark fruity with a heavy fermented fruit sourness, a bit of plum and dark pomegranate. Body falls a bit flat with no carbonation, but the flavor is strong with a little strong sour kick on the start, some dry oak tannins, and a robust sour yet dark fruity sweetness, with mostly some tones of blueberry, and pomegranate.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to the guy who brought this at the Hill Farmstead 3rd Anniversary bottle share. Copper with indigo/purple reflects, a good white head and some lacing. Aroma is of blueberries, earthy notes, tropical fruits, light vanilla, oak and funky notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with blueberries, tropical fruits, oak, funk, earthy notes, vanilla and grassy finish. Medium body. Slightly dry. Very good blueberry Sour Ale. Better than WWBR.

backlogged rating: Poured a reddish golden hue with a hint of purple. The beer has notes of blueberry muffins, pale grains, oak, apricot, mango, hibiscus, vinegar and light funk. The taste follows suit which made me very happy, fresh blueberry working with the hop fruitiness over the layers of grains and wood. Wonderfully tart and refreshing, this is so fr the one Crooked Stave beer I would want again and again.
