Bottle shared by Alan....you spoiled us with Crooked gear brah. Pours bloody crimson brown with small beige head. Aromas and flavor are cherry funk, cough syrup, smooth oak, vanilla, cherry pie, balsamic, and melted slurpee. The scent became intoxicating at times. Notes of Belgian red mixed in with Crooked Stave complexity pretty much making it similiar to Enigma or Bourbon R&D kriek. So fucking ridiculous. Huge thanks to Al for cracking this and the others that night. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Wow oh wow is this stuff awesome. Poured a bright pink to red color, much like the pictures I have seen of some of the florida Weisses. with a pinkish head. Aroma was loads of tart cherries, mild skins and seeds, lactose, bourbon, oak, and lemon peel/. Flavor was probably exactly what I was looking for, fairly tart, not acedic at all, sour cherreis for sour, but not a straigh fruit beer, lots of oak and bourbon too, and some mild funk and barnyard notes too. AWESOME! RichTheVillan (8240) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle from International Trade;
Burgundy red pour with pink head, funky cherry aroma, sour tart cherry lip puckering and drying and delightful a hint of bourbon. This beer is wonderful my words don’t do it justice.
