Bottle. Pours a cloudy purple with no head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong brett and blackberry, oak. Thin mouthfeel with sour blackberry and light brett with lingering dry finish. Really enjoyed this one off. Tmoney99 (14490) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear ruby color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, wood and berry aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
(375ml bottle) Pours a hazy violet body with a spare white head. Aroma of oak, blackberries, plum, grape, earth, and florals. Flavor of oak, florals, herbs, vinous, earthiness, and blackberries with a dry, bitter finish. Dogbrick (13012) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 011: Crooked Stave-tastic 01 on 05/02/2014. Hazy purplish-amber color with a medium pinkish-white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, oak and yeast. Light to medium body with a barnyard character and flavors of blackberry, funky yeast and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a berry and oak aftertaste. Pretty good overall. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Like the original but this one has some issues, plasticy, not very great at all.

Pours dark red like a good red wine. Aroma of blackberry and elderberries, with the trademark sour yeast. Active carbonation, from 2013 cellar. Thick rich dark berry taste, significantly tart.

Purple pour with an off white head. Flavors of dusty yeast, berries, lemon peel, lacoto. Some yogurt flavors too. I think this one will do well with some age. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a reddish purple appearance with a pinkish head that dissipates pretty quickly. Cheesy, blackberry/blueberry, tannic/woody, vanilla aroma. Tangy, soda-like, light butter, vanilla woody, juicy dark berry flavor. A touch watery. Not nearly as sour or fruit forward as the plum release.
