3.6/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: The liquid pours out the color of the fleshy part of a plum (not a blood plum, the other kind) and it takes some work to build a head; little retention and lacing

Smell: Funk, oak, cheese and a vague fruit and vinous character

Taste: Tart fruit juice (hard to identify the underlying flavor as plum) with oak and vinous tones developing; lemony sourness, after the swallow; dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low carbonation

Overall: Not among the best beers produced by Crooked Stave, but worth a try

Thanks, JMBSH, for the opportunity

2013 thanks to rudzud for sharing.

No head, slight hazy slight pinkish guava orange like color.

Nose is weird, some buttery oak, then lots of weird tart fruit skin, grape cranberry craisin thing, some tart fruity Brett funk vinous just weird funk and buttery oak.

Taste comes on tart with vinous berry and lots of skin flavor, sour light lime skin, etc. Some buttery oak, faint grainy malt, little lacto perhaps? Light plum and sticky flemmy esp on the finish, lingering lemony tartness, little vinous and buttery oak barrel.

Mouth is med bod, light carb, little acidic bite.

Overall pretty nice, could be better but still enjoyable.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy pinkish plum hue with a thin white head that fades almost immediately to a thin halo.

S - Aromas of weird fruit skin, no plum, very little brett, buttery oak. Confusing and jumbled.

T - Taste is more fruit skin, almost vinuos notes which make sense due to the oak barrel. Light buttery oak, fruit skin, funky brett. Nothing crazy but nothing offensive.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, pleasant.

O - Overall this beer was alright, nothing crazy but not too too bad. Pleasant.
