Appearance - Not much head to this beer and it poured a murky red brown color. Great lacing as you drank the beer.

Smell - lots and lots of funkiness going on along with a tartness I will attribute to the cherries.

Taste - Early tangy tartness before an after taste of sour. Subtle sour and not as strong as some other Crooked Stave beers.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth compared to some big sours out there

Overall - another great example from Crooked Stave. My second favorite from the Origins series.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Nice. Lots of oak. Cherry. Brett. A little bit of malt.

Taste - Pleasant cherry sourness. Light cherry sweetness. Quite oaky. Deep caramel.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated. Nice sourness.

Overall - Very impressive. The cherry is the highlight.
