Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with white hue that dissipated. Aroma is lactic, straw, acetic, fruit. Mouthfeel is great with light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a great brew.

Pour is hazed golden amber with a thin tight white head. Nose is dusty and light cheese funk with a leathery brett, hints of mineral and salt, a faint plastic ester, and notes of lemon and tangerine but very light. Taste is much more fruit forward. The funk isnít near as present, still a fair bit of brett offering a leathery mineral and hint of salt. Fruity esters, juicy lemon, ripened tangerine and a faint touch of citrus. Nicely balanced beer, fairly bright and integrated. Lighter body, softer carbonation, and smooth.

July 1st Sunday. After about 10 crooked stave beers under my belt and several more in the fridge, I can say I am a fanboy. Was excited to try this. Fruity, a bit of funk, easy belgian ale base with the hops adding lots of citrus and grapefuity notes. Nice!

Sample at First Sunday. The sour aroma is wafting across the room, have not gotten that in too many sour beers. Murky dark orange color. Tart and lemon fruit flavors. Light on the sour flavors and definitely bigger in the nose than it is on the tongue. Really digging this one, smooth on teh finish.

Hazy orange pour. Super grainy nose. The flavor reminds me of grape nuts with a slightly funky finish and a bit of lingering fruit.

Nicely drinkable summer beer. A little citrus and spice on a Belgian pale. Somewhat tart.No head.

Buckeyeboy provided this at an impromptu summer tasting.. Thanks Jeremy. Pours a hazy light orange with a minimal white head and no real lacing. Nose is bretty with plenty of background pale malt that sorta mutes things IMO.. a bit of a fruity estery note that combines with some minor sour element that reminds me of apricots. Flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma... sweet/tart thing going on... is a bit muddy and seems soft and on dimensional despite the brett and fruity esters... not very well done given the good portfolio I have had from CS in the past. Body is heavy for the style and even more so given the brett... Okay, but 3x geeks didnít jump to be the one to finish the bottle. Thanks again Jeremy, but this was pretty flimsy.

Bottle shared by the man himself (Ferus..) for his numero 2500 rating! Hazy yellow pour, nice finger of white head. Aroma of sour funk, and tropical fruits. Taste, oh yea, lots and lots of flavour, this isnít just a funk bomb where all you get is brett and tart, tropical fruits, brett, some nice tartness, dry finish with plenty of complexity. Really enjoyed this!
