Pours a vibrant berry red, nearing magenta. Somewhat cloudy. Small off white head. After a minute or two, only a ring of bubbles with wisps across the surface remain. The aroma is a fruity mix of flavors. There's hibiscus along with blackberries, raspberries, lemons, apples and a fruity floral quality, not quite sure what to call it. I'm a little surprised to pick up some of the cinnamon, kinda expected it to have faded or dominated by the other flavors. Mild whiskey note. Some oak. The barrel mostly seems to contribute some fairly strong vanilla. The hibiscus/berries still are in control, but the vanilla adds some good sweetness. The taste is medium sour. Starts with berry and vanilla sweetness, before tarter berries and lemons take over. Oak in the finish. Not much funk but it's there a bit. Sourness seem mostly lactic. Overall, it's quite dry. Fairly effervescent at first, but it settles pretty quickly. Pretty light on the palate. Lingering lactic aftertaste with a medium pucker. Very good beer. I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one, but it's probably my second favorite from CS, after Batch #1.

APPEARANCE: Wow. Purple-ish-red in color with the most pure white head I have ever seen on a beer. That head rose and fell within 15 seconds or so, leaving some of that pure white wispiness to cover about 50% of the surface of the beer. The beer is fairly clear with a slight haze and some slow moving bubbles rising to the top.

SMELL: A very tart, apple-like aroma dominates this smell with a little bit of peach and some flowers, but not even a hint of cinnamon yet. OK, as the beer warms, a touch of cinnamon does show up in the aroma.

TASTE: Haha. That is incredibly tart! The cinnamon is there, but it is subtle, just a quick flash of an appearance, mid-tongue, early in the sip. Again, this is tart. Apples, peaches and the flowers all come through. Intense. I am not getting much at all from the bourbon other than the fruit flavors, just a touch of oak at the end.

MOUTHFEEL: Puckering, to an extreme. Actually to the point where I giggled before my first sip. The carbonation only serves to add to that pucker, with a nice strong, soda-like tickle.

OVERALL: Another excellently executed sour beer from Crooked Stave. There is a lot going on here and it all somehow comes together.
