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 (671 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - rich dark dark almost oil like with 2 fingers worth of reddish/ caramel foam. Beautiful pour for a sour!

Smell - bitterly sweet tartness going on. Wow, lots and lots of raspberry as well.

Taste - PUCKER UP! Lots of tart going on and funk all over. Slight sweetness coming from the raspberries as well.

Mouthfeel - this one leaves your mouth and you are puckered up, but wow is it good.

Overall - this beer is NOT for everyone, but if you enjoy a sour this one was great. Cannot wait to see how this one will age a bit! (536 characters)

A huge thank you to cocoapuph for sending this, my first selection from a box full of awesomeness that came last week. Cheers man!! 2013 bottle.

Pours dark brown, close to black in the glass and topped with 3 fingers of frothy, khaki head. Trat raspberry, dark chocolate and some lactic sour on the nose with a touch of whiskey barrel and coconut.

Quite sour with tart raspberry, cocoa, ...there's a bit of whiskey barrel too if I really look. Not a ton going on, but what's there is very nice.

Medium body, medium-strong carbonation.

Very nice stuff. Without looking at ratings, the nicest CS beer I've tried so far. Thanks again, cocoapuph. (648 characters)
