Pours a dark murky brown with a finger and a half of light brown head. Head foams up quite nicely for a sour. Very little lacing left behind. Aroma is of Belgian yeast esters, and raspberry. Flavor profile is very similar with notes of Belgian yeast esters hidden behind a sour, twangy raspberry shell. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a full, smoothness to it. Overall, a fun and funky little Belgian ale. The raspberries are nice. It's fun to drink without any sour sucker punching.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

A 375ml bottle, bottled in November 2015. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A clear and extremely dark red colour with a two fingered tan-ish red head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.

Aroma: Intense freshly crushed raspberries and raspberry jam.

Taste: Sour and tart with a combination of mixed berries; raspberry, blackberry and blueberry. It is also very jammy but the sweet only lightly shows through the tartness.

Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: This is amazing. I don’t get any of the 9% ABV which is great, but I’m also not getting much of the oak barrels that it was supposedly aged in, which while disappointing, actually meant that it was very raspberry jammy and tasty. Crooked Stave have done it again with Silly Cybies, which is a must buy for me.

Off white head. Raspberry mahogany red.

Lots of tap berries. Funky and fruity. Sour and tart. Light acidity.

Big raspberry fruit flavor. This is one of the better CS beers out there.

Dark burgundy with a red head. Once the head goes away it looks like a glass of grape juice.

Holy cow those raspberries! Fruity punch to the nose, dominated by raspberries. Jammy.

Jammy and tart flavor. The raspberries completely dominate. Slightly acidic, but no overly so.

Great carbonation and level of acidity. It's sweet but is cut well by both.

Great beer, probably my favorite from Crooked Stave.
