Thanks to ablackshear for this bottle!

375ml bottle sealed with pressure cap and maroon wax. bottled: September 2013.

poured into crooked stave tulip.

Appearance: dark brown to a light black bodied beer; it is opaque. A massive 3 fingers worth of long lasting and substantial beige head with a tinge of dark redness. Drops down to a thin cap that does not go away. Moderate lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Tons of fresh and juicy raspberries, nice dose of earthy oak and mild malty sweetness.

Taste: Big sourness right away; 8/10 on the sourness scale. Huge notes of fresh and juicy raspberries. Oak barrel. Hint of sweetness from the whiskey and malts. Sweet tarts brand candies. Hint of musty funkiness. Finishes moderately sour and fairly dry. This is an extremely tasty sour beer! Wow!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation levels. This is really well carbonated and thats what makes this beer so phenominal. Higher carbonation levels really amplify the sourness and dryness of this beer in the most perfect way! Though this beer is really flavorful, very sour, and moderate on the "dryness" levels, it still drinks really really easily.

Overall: This is probably the best Crooked Stave offering that I have ever drank to date! Yes, its really is that good! Its like a raspberry bomb plus a flanders red with a lighter than normal malt profile for a flander red. It is even reminiscent of bottle of Cantillions Lou Pepe Framboise with over 5 years in the bottle. This is truely excellant sour beer! Bravo Crooked Stave!
