UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Draft at Old Chicago-Lakewood. Listed as sour/wild, but falls neatly into the Belgian IPS panel style. Yeasty notes, with the hop selection make for a fruity, snappy, floral mix. Mellow aroma leads into a folder flavor, finishes with a tingle. Nice.

Enjoyed on tap at Ale House in Grand Junction, CO. I didn't take tasting notes, but remember this being a very nice moderately hopped IPA with one of the best balances of Brett yeast I've noticed in a beer. Pretty good stuff, would have again.

Color is light straw. Very cloudy. Aroma is banana and clove with hints of hops. Taste of hops, sour, clove, and banana. Mouthfeel lingers but is fairly pleasant. *13 oz bottle poured into wine glass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Moderate funk, some stinky overripe stone fruit. Bright medium straw color. Mild rounded funkiness. light tart fruit, some umami or saltiness, and light peach pit bittering in finish. Thin body, with small tingly carbonation, and moderate astringency. Very smooth all around, fruity and well balanced.

Appearance: pours with a large beige head, the beer is a very hazy orange color, not quite transparent Aroma: very strong funk, bread, lemon, yeast, orange Taste: a lemon-lime flavor, tangy, extremely funky, citrus Plate: very dry, tangy aftertaste, light mouthfeel Overall: a very unique beer, reminds me of a sprite, very funky, so tangy and acidic that you have to drink it slow, recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in Gunnison.

Definitely a brett beer rather than a hop-driven pale ale, this is nonetheless hoppier than your average 100% brett ale, and the citra/mosaic combo works quite well with the sourness from the brett. Very tasty.

Pours a hazy light yellow golden color with white head. Citrus, yeast, pine, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with citrus and grass.

The Brett gives this a hoppy saison character. Less sour than spicy. Sharp appeal in both aroma and flavor.

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2016
cloudy yellow, small white head. aroma is quite nice milky and citrussy sour, faint dough, mild and rounded, but some distance from the best aromas ive had from crooked stave beers. flavor is close to aroma, sour and milky. also some bitterness from hops, and some yeasty dough like notes. i think the flavor i dislike is a bit like glue or rubber. it is not a lot, but it distracts a little. ignoring that distraction the beer is a very well tasting, well rounded sour, with a good bitter herbal hoppy balance.
