4.05/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From a 375 ml bottle (dated April 30, 2013) into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated June 8, 2013.

A-The brew is pretty flat with very minimal head, which is typical of the Crooked Stave beers I have tried. The brew is cloudy and apricot/orange in color. Looks pretty still in the glass.

S-The smell is more tart than many Crooked Stave brews, bordering on sour. There is a nice mixture of fruit: peaches, apricots, tart white grapes, and sour green apples. A bit of dough underneath and some oaky funk, too.

T-The taste isn't quite as sour as the smell would suggest, but the brew is tart with an acidic bite to it up front. The fruit flavors are dried apricot and peach (mostly) with an accompanying musty earthy funk that pairs well with the fruit. There is a drying, tannic oaky flavor on the finish. I don't taste any bourbon, per se, but I get a slightly boozy, caramel note every now and again.

M-The feel is light to medium body with a little wave of fine carbonation that fades on the palate.

O-This is another quality brew from CS. I rank this as more sour and a touch less complex than the best CS offerings, but there is plenty to enjoy here. Those looking for a bourbon bomb should look elsewhere, but I think the barrel flavors are well-executed in their restraint. All in all, a nice summer brew.

Brief review - 5 out of 5 tasters agree this smells like canned tuna. Not a pleasant aroma.

Taste is improved from the smell - classic crooked stave flavors with a bit of booze (no tuna to be found).

On the whole, this is okay. Definitely not worth the price.
