Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer
Appearance: Deep, dark ruby with some brown highlights - small, light beige head, fades to some wisps of a cap, leaves a few specs of lacing
Smell: Sour and tart, with some ripe oak - acidic and lactic sour, with some yeasty funk - touch of damp cellar - amber malts at the base, kind of like a Flanders Red - some dark fruits - some vinegar and a ton of oak
Taste: Fruity tartness - nicely tart, with some dark berry-like fleshy tartness - some red wine tannins - lactic, damp tartness - grape and cherry skins - more tartness, with a light touch of vinegar - big, chewy oak - barrel in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth, with a tart, refreshing finish
Overall: Tart, sour, tasty
I'm not surprised that Crooked Stave made (another) great sour. I'm not really sure what category this falls into, but I guess the phrase "burgundy sour" makes sense. It's kind of like a Flanders Red, but also not. Definitely worth a try.
Serving type: bottle
