Crystal clear pink hued body.

Mashed black cherries. Alcohol. Sour peaches.

Lime, sour cherry, not cloying at all. Crisp green apple. Slightly astringent. A good balance of sweet and bitter here. Could be a little more complex with some wild yeasty flavors. Would have liked to see that. Semi dry at the end keeps you coming back.

I think this beer is underrated. It's a nice cherry beer that is extremely drinkable.

Nose of tart cherries, sour grapes and that's about it. Taste is cherries (tart and sour), red grapes, citrus and some alcohol. Very effervescent, almost like a sparkling wine. Pretty good, but a little too froofy for me. I was hoping for something a little more "sour ale" but not bad though.

A- Pink honey. Big bubble head that runs away as fast as it can. Hmmmm curious
S- Smell the pucker. Sour cherry as it suggests
T- Pucker before anything. Pretty sour. Taste is good but seems to be lacking depth (I guess it is only 5.4% though)
M- LOTS of bubbles. Definite drool factor
O- It's good. Was hoping for something a bit heavier in the mouth, but not at all disappointed.

A-nice reddish brown but with a lack of head

S-doesn't smell too sour. There's some toasted caramel and scent of honey cereal. Medium to low strength

T-comes in with a fairly nice flavor of berries and lemons along with some cereal. It's weak for a sour brown ale but it's not bad as a beer, overall. There's a long lasting after-taste reminiscent if ash, almost like cigar smoke.

M-medium dry carbonation with a dry finish

O-as a sour, this isn't a great beer. But I do like this a lot. It has a certain elegance and complexity to it. I'm not sure what exactly I'd classify it as. I recommend trying it whether or not you're a sour fan

newest addition to their crooked line. a sour cherry ale for their 19th anniversary. enjoyed at the beer hive on main street in salt lake. pours a mostly clear pink grapefruit color with effervescent bubbles into a chalice with a tall rising white bubbly head. smells fruit sour, not brett or lacto sour. the fruit really dominated the nose, and the champaigne style carbonation prevents a deeper sniff. flavor is qute different, not sweet at all, crisp. almost like a raspberry ginger ale (do they still make those?). some sourness in the finish, tart and tannic, light body. surprisingly low abv for this series, but a rather clever brew overall. a bomber of this felt like a lot to me, so maybe a good one to share with some mates.

I don't get the theme. It looks like Adam and Eve are getting ready to celebrate a birthday with cake. The beer comes in a 750 ml bottle and was split three ways somewhere in San Francisco's Presidio. On to the beer:

Guilherme's purchase of a glass was worth it just to see the color of this beer. It is a beautiful orangish red color with a brilliant bright look. Plenty of lace splashes around the glass. The nose has some sweet cherry, but it's mild. Some tartness works into the nose.

This is a mellow ale. The sourness is very mellow. The cherries don't dominante too much and don't overpower the senses. We weren't sure of the alcohol content beforehand, but we were sure it was "low". Sweet with a little sour. The body is a lighter medium with a very smooth texture.

Some days I might have been dissapointed by the end result from higher expectations. Considering we drank this at 11am, this was a good choice that didn't wreck our palates for the rest of the day.

750 bottle, bottled on 3/29/12,

A: Pours pink to blood orange red with a fizzy white head, light lace.

S: Cherries and raspberries, mildly fragrant.

T: Real nice true cherry flavour, some lemon zest as well. Eating chocolate with the beer, really opened up the fruit flavours and made the beer considerably better, so I'd suggest that pairing.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, bubbly/sparkling wine like. Mild acidity, sour but not lambic sour.

O: A good beer, a tad overpriced, but a sour beer for $12 is still a good value. Hoping for the poor man's Belgian Red, that it wasn't, but worth a try.
