500th Review

A - Dark brown like the color of soda with lots of carbonation to it 4

S - The nose is full of red wine and a dark tannin presence from the burgundy barrels. There is also dark cherry, light cinnamon, peach and a light booze presence

T - Really tart with lots of red wine up front. You can tell this was in a burgundy barrel with the big red wine and tannin presence. Really tart and lots of balsamic vinegar on the finish

M - Light body with good carbonation near the end. Definitely has some zip that remains in the finish as well

O - Another great sour from Crooked Stave that is loaded with red wine from the Burgundy and all the tannins

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown body. A few bubbles, but not much of a head. Thin collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Some deep dark cherry acidity. A little bit of vinegar. Lots of vanilla. Oak.

Taste - Some dark fruit sourness. Caramel. Vinegar sourness. Oak. Vanilla and bourbon are stronger in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium body. Medium sourness.

Overall - I love the bourbon barrel in this. Really adds a nice dimension.
