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.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright red. Mostly clear. Small white head and some wisps.

Smell - Minimal acidity. Oak. Vanilla and whiskey.

Taste - More berry like. A bit of tang. The cinnamon makes it tastes a bit medicinal. Some oak and whiskey in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Low sourness. Medium body.

Overall - Tasty. The cinnamon is a bit odd.
