375ml bottle thanks to the person I trustee for. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma is a touch of malt sweetness, vinegar, not bad. Flavor is nice, touch if chocolate, sour, fruity but the raspberries aren't very distinct. There is only the most mild hint of the whiskey barrel. Overall this is one if the better 2013 cellar reserve beers but still not worth the money in my opinion.

A - Dark deep brown with a big rocky head that is color of cola
S - Tons of Fresh raspberries. Slight syrupy sweetness. Tart lactic acid and sweet tarts make up a sour nose. Just an amazing nose you could smell all day
T - Really tart up front with lemon, oak, balsamic vinegar and a slight lactic acid. There is a ton of jammy raspberry as well that balances out the sourness. The finish is raspberry warhead
M - Light and effervescent with a lot of carbonation that lingers on the finish. Dry near the finish as well
O - A really good BA sour from Crooked Stave that is just overloaded with tart sour flavors and raspberries. Definitely happy I got to try this one

A- Pours finger dark vanilla head with very low retention. Head sticks to the glass. Crazy amount of carb. Extremely dark red, looking dark brown, non transparent. The liquid is not foggy looking, just really dense.
S- Deep raspberry, base of funk and malt. The fruit cuts through the funk though leaving more of a prevalent fruit dominance. I am getting a touch of barrel there as well.
T- Tart raspberry that fades into a taste that I don't like... oud bruin. I hope it gets better down the glass, and I will change if it does. The raspberry is there, the barrel is there, but the co-mingling between the two don't mesh for me.
M- Kinda harsh with too much carb. I hope the bottle mellows out as I go. Tart acid hits the mouth. On swallow, too much carb interferes with the brew. I have another bottle to revisit in a year or so. Hope it gets better.
O- I had huge expectations for this one, but I was a bit let down as I didn't get a smooth beer with the adjuncts seemingly fighting each other.
