4.4/5 rDev +2.8%
375 ml waxed bottle poured into Barley Creek wine glass.
A: Pours a deep brown with hints of ruby; very appealing color. Light only passes through the very edges of the glass. A slow to moderate pour yields a one finger, cream head that slowly recedes, leaving a barely present foam ring atop the glass. Mild lacing on the way down.
S: The aroma immediately lets you know this one is going to be tart. The nose leans more to the sour than funk. Dark fruits; cherries, plums, and raisins. There is also an interesting caramel aroma lingering in the background.
T: This is tart, a bit funky, and finishes dry, leaving your mouth watering. Tart fruits up front; plums was the first thing that came to mind. Finishes dry and the funk kicks in at the very back end. Picking up some wood in there as well.
M: I would call this a medium bodied sour. Carbonation is in the low to moderate range for the style.
O: This is the first Crooked Stave beer I've had the pleasure of enjoying and I am left supremely impressed. A fantastic sour. Highly recommended if you have the opportunity to try this one.

4.16/5 rDev -2.8%
A - Dark brown like the color of soda with lots of carbonation to it 4
S - The nose is full of red wine and a dark tannin presence from the burgundy barrels. There is also dark cherry, light cinnamon, peach and a light booze presence
T - Really tart with lots of red wine up front. You can tell this was in a burgundy barrel with the big red wine and tannin presence. Really tart and lots of balsamic vinegar on the finish
M - Light body with good carbonation near the end. Definitely has some zip that remains in the finish as well
O - Another great sour from Crooked Stave that is loaded with red wine from the Burgundy and all the tannins
