From notes. Thanks to the BA that brought this over to Mista's "whale" party a few weeks ago.
A- Pours a murky brown with red highlights that has a small white head that dissipates fast, leaving minimal lacing left behind.
S- Lots of berries upfront with red cherries, cranberries, strawberries and raspberries followed by a hint of cheese, oak, some vinegar and lacto.
T- The red wine barrels come through initially with a variety of red berries, oak, vanilla, berry vinaigrette and some lacto. The berries provide a nice balance of tartness/sweetness.
M- Low carbonation with a medium body and a dry finish.
O- I found this quite enjoyable and unique. Not overly sweet or tart. I'd love to try more of Crooked Staves offerings.

Another Jason gift. A lace sheet on reddish. A good sour, very raspberry, that beats Cantillon on raspberry. . A big sour. Very drinkable for a sour. Almost 4 years aged. Meedium mouthfeel, sour yet very drinkable. Worth breaking in people to Crooked Stave.

750 ml Bottle drank at the NWIBDU tasting. Thanks!
A - Pours a dark ruby red with a off-white head that dissipates quickly.
S - Smells of tart raspberries, sweet tarts, balsamic vinegar, and lemon. Really a tart nose. There is also a light oak but it gets hit by the overall tart flavors
T -This is really one sour beer. There are ripe tart raspberries that hit as well as vinegar, lemon, and tons of lactic acid. This is a beer that makes you pucker. It isn't just pure tartness though as the raspberries provide some nice flavor as well. It didn't have much funk but I didn't mind because I loved the overall tart raspberry and cherries flavors within this one.
M - Sharp from the carbonation and the tartness as well as a dry finish.
O - I really enjoyed this beer and was struck by how much tartness it brought forward. It also did this in a way that balanced well with the natural tartness of the raspberries. I was definitely impressed by what Crooked Stave did with this one.
