Scopey (14000) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bill, shared at Craft Clerko. It pours hazy purple with a small off-white head. The nose is soft, very juicy, blackberry, jam, tangy, dirty, pungent farmyard, funky and earthy brett. The taste is juicy, tangy blackcurrant, jam, Ribena, sherbet, wood, vinous, tart green apple and lemon rind with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very juicy and rather quaffable. Tasty.

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.

Dogbrick (12565) - 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.

Like the original but this one has some issues, plasticy, not very great at all.

Sammy (11811) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
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. Fruit and vitamins of the night.Thanks Jason B.

daknole (10936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
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.

adnielsen (10584) - 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.
