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.

Took this to a BYOB for dinner with the folks. Poured into a wine glass, and loved it from the start. A rosy pink color (almost looked like a rose wine actually), with only a slight haze, and a delicate bubbly head that fizzled down to a thin ringlet very soon; no lacing. Tangy aroma, acidic, soured wheat, notes of plum and tropical fruit rinds, slightly cobwebby. Nice tartness up front in the taste, obvious notes of plum, some lemon, pineapple, raspberry, tangy and not super-sour, flavors of barnyard funk and a little wet wood. Complex but light and well-balanced. Light body, almost spritzy, with a clean must. Highly drinkable. I'll certainly open another bottle soon.
Not a popular opinion, but this might be my favorite from CS so far.
