375ml bottle thanks to a very generous trading partner, nice to be able to try one of these exclusive club beers without joining the club. The first whiff off the bottle was super nice, oaky, hints of sour flavors to come. Color was brown and murky, almost no head at all. The aroma in the glass was less concentrated but had mild notes of tart cherry, a touch of funk but not much. The flavor was mildly sour, touches of cherry, and unfortunately for me I did not get much bourbon barrel at all. I know Crooked Stave can make some top notch sours but I don;t feel like this was one of them and every time I drink a Crooked Stave beer I am reminded how good Russian River really is. For my money I am going to buy Russian River over Crooked Stave every last time. Still, this was a solid beer and better than regular Origins for sure.
