750ml bottle bought at Liquor Shed. Harvest 2016.

Pours black, small head of tannish foam. Tilting my glass, hey there's some sticky lacing.

Smells of sour cherries, Brett and oak in that order.

Taste smacks of sour cherries, oh my, barrel adds a bit of oak wood flavours. The Brett is more subdued but I can definitely say it's there. Overall, the sour sensation is very pleasing.

Fairly light bodied with adequate carbonation.

I love sour cherries but I love sour raspberries more. And Crooked Stave has accommodated me with that option...

Deep, dark brown body; nearly opaque; thin yet creamy, 1/2 finger thick head. Dry and woody with some nice brett funk; white oak and dried pine. Tart and oakish flavor. Thick, creamy and smooth body; tart and acidic.

One could wax overly poetic about this beer, but suffice it to say that this beer satisfies in a most righteous and well-rounded manner for a wild ale.

Poured at the Brussels Beer Fest in August 2017. Look is extremely dark purple, almost black. Almost no carbonation. Smell is deep cherries, earthy. Taste is amazing. Mouth puckering sour, but also some sweet and wood coming through. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry. Amazing beer.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Aroma has flanders style notes with roasted malt, dusty barrel, balsamico, dark cherries and cherry pits. Taste is tart, acidic, fruity and sour with some caramel malt notes.

On tap at Beertemple. Very dark pour with a tall, fine-grained tan head. Notes of macerated cherries, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, red wine, grapes and vanilla. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a sour and moderately sweet aftertaste.
