Crooked Stave Member Berries Petite Sirah
What the brewers say
"A spontaneous golden sour ale aged in oak barrels with petite sirah grapes."
What our panel thought
Enjoyable and complex aroma: raspberry and plum notes from the grapes, oak, funk, a very light touch of lactic sourness. Flavor is similar yet highly tannic. Grape character dominates."
What our editors thought
"Rich nose of dark cherries and raspberries, black pepper, leather. The sip is sharp red berry, oak tannin, spicy pepper, bitter Brett funk, and a simultaneously juicy and dry red grape."
