look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Purple grapefruit color with little to no head or lacing

Smell - don't really get any fruit flavor to this one. lots of tartness

taste - This one is all over the place. Sweet, but tart, then sour, but fun complexity to it. not much plum flavor though

Mouthfeel - easy to drink, but leaves you wanting a little more

Overall - fun beer, but the plum was muddled for me.

3.74/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pretty rosy pink body. A little haze. Thin collar. Not much else of a head.

Smell - Fruity. I don't know that I'd call it plum without already knowing it was plum, but having read the label I'd definitely say it's plum. Brett. Some oak.

Taste - Less distinctly plummy, but fruity. Brett isn't so intense. The aftertaste is definitely plum and it's pretty acidic. Oak adds a nice dimension.

Mouthfeel - A shade watery. Medium carbonation. A hint of tang.

Overall - Not as complex as other Crooked Stave beers. I had a decent pour of this, but I get the feeling I would like it more if I could drink more of it.
