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.

Bottle from Mr. B’s on my trip to Denver. Brew No. 3 of my night of BA Sours for the last day of my 20’s. Pours dark brown with barely any light showing through and an of white head that fizzes off rather quickly. Aroma has the requisite oak and sour vinegar, dark fruits, and some brown sugar notes on this one. Flavor is lightly sour with some candi sugar sweetness, vinegar, acidity, dark fruits, some black cherry. Dry tart finish, medium body, with medium low carbonation. This is nice, but takes a back seat to the Rufus Corvus and Red Poppy I had just before it.
