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

Pinball (11740) - 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 iíve 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.

Pours hazy orange gold with white head. Great nose of florals, citrus, and funk. Tastes of citrus orange, pine, floral, horse blanket, Brett, and cheerios. Very dry on finish making you immediately want another sip. Really nice.

falco242 (356) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Excited CS entered MN! This guy is super interesting, with a lot of funk and citrus but with a very dry bitter finish given the dry hopping. Itís almost too much of a medicinal herbal finish for me but I love that they went for it and still think it succeeds. Barnyard and earthy and solid overall.

Draft at world of beer denver. Aroma is pure saison funk, thin white head and hazy gold color. The hops balance nicely though are very subtle. Grass, citrus, lemon notes in the finish. Nice summer seasonal!

beerguy101 (5344) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Sampled on 6/22/15. This wild ale pours a cloudy yellow orange gold color from a 375ml bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, The aroma is citrusy, bretty, fruity and tropical. A medium to light bodied wild IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet, tropical and peaches. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Lively carbonation. Bretty and a touch funky, but there is a whole lot else going on here. Nice mix of tropical and hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
