375ml bottle, bottles March 2015, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a beautiful ruby red color with a small fizzy white head that disappears completely, leaving nothing behind

S- fruity and tart aroma with notes of red berries, underlying notes of spiced wood, sweet floral, lemon peel, lactic sourness, lemon head candy and a trace of cinnamon & whiskey

T- flavor profile isn't as complex as the aroma. Notes of red berry fruit up front mixes with toasted oak, sweet floral notes, tart lemon, lactic notes & a hint of cinnamon that comes out on the close

M- medium-light body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a bone dry puckering finish

O- an interesting blend that has some nice red fruity notes, I wish the cinnamon were a bit more noticeable

Pour is a clear bright ruby red with a tight light pink head. Nose is cherry, citrus, faint cinnamon spice, apple skin, and light plastic brett. Taste is similar, tart cherry, tangerine, citrus, green apple skin, finish is bretty, well carbonated, with a delicate feel. Some sourness comes in through the back. Decent stuff.

the hibiscus give the beer a great color. I barely taste the cinnamon and spices, and in general I notice a complete lack in flavor. I have had better from crooked stave

Herbs, peppercorns, mouth-drying cinnamon and spice. Looks great, tastes bad.

375ml bottle. Dated March 2015. Served in a stemmed glass 5/14/2015.

Dark pink-purple body, one finger light pink head, good retention. Thin film, moderate sized collar, bubbly. Smells of leather, flower petals, light raspberry, a bit of citrus. Mild pie crust sweetness from the base. Not in-your-face intense, but a nice complexity to it. Flavour is mild raspberry, a very small bit of cinnamon spice that is very mellow- not Abraxas-level cinnamon- and adds a nice flavour and doesn't get in the way of the other flavours. Also, hibiscus, a bit of citrus acidity, mild-moderate acidity that isn't bracing in any way. A fair amount of the now-standard Crooked Stave brett flavours- leather, oak, citrus. Very good. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft, good carbonation, slightly dry with a fair amount of depth. Easy to drink, refreshing. Overall, another nice sour from Crooked Stave. I was afraid there would be too much cinnamon, but there isn't much of it here. The hibiscus contributes more character, which makes for a nice floral, flower petal-like flavour which works well on top of the base sour ale.
