Pours a murky reddish color, not a pleasant appearance but at least it has a nice head. The nose is front and center with tart cherries. You get the flesh, you get the skin, every bit of the essence of a tart cherry is encapsulated in the aroma. Tons of oak supports the cherry as well. No bourbon character to speak of. The taste is much like the nose, heavy cherry notes, plenty of acetic character which brings on a considerable tartness but nothing too puckering. Light notes of leather and vanilla come in towards the end as well as a moderate sweetness that counters the tartness. Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy and there is moderate carbonation. Overall, another terrific offering from Crooked Stave.

A somewhat unattractive shade of orange-brown. Cloudy and murky. Very little head. No lacing. Aroma is full of cherry essence along with a tart malt vinegar sourness. Taste is tart, sour cherries. Yep, tart, sour cherries. Not a whole lot else, but there's a lot of sour cherries. Medium bodied, tart-sour. Very mild bitterness. Low carbonation.
