Bottle from arminjewell. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nice funk is the highlight of the aroma, really a cool beer. The brett and hops work well together, good work guys.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. A cloudy deep orangey/orange looking one with a small but surprisingly lacing white top. On the nose it’s light woody and hoppy with some bashing detergent fruitiness and traces of grass and brett. . Smells really good. More detergents in the taste. A bit harsh to say the least. Almost yeast smoky in a bad way. In the mouth it’s mouthdrying but oily in texture while the carbonation is above average. Sour peaches with wood, burned matches, that bitter detergent and dandelions. Not the best Crooked I’ve had due to all that near artificial detergent bitter flacors, but still not a bad one at all. 10.01.2014

375ml bottle from Bierkompass.

Pale orange outlook with big sticky cloudy white foam. Aroma is fresh and fruity but little bit mild. Not so sour but good stuff still. Easy to drink.

Bottle shared by westmeister at his house. Funky feet aroma. Murky orange color but I may have gotten the sediment in the bottom of the bottle since everyone else’s looks much clearer. Light fruit and grassy herbal hops. Peach and a bitter grapefruit finish. Like the hop profile working with the sour here.

DialSquare (2306) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Yellow-gold pour with big root beer float head. Aroma is amazing - brett funk, oak, intense fruit. Tastes are dusty, lightly bitter, fruit, jam on bread, lemon, bandaid funk. Finishes a dry oaky bitter. Very very interesting.

jeremyh70 (585) - Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2014
On Tap at Choice City Deli in Colorado. Clear light amber with good head, good retention and lacing. Aroma of light fruit, resiny, sort of briney. Crisp bitter flavor with some citrus like nectarines. Medium/full body with crisp mouthfeel and medium high carbonation. Big tasty flavor but still probably a sipper.

Westmeister (1520) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Tasting Cumming, GA. Noted by my Denver bud as Batch 1. This was the first opened and remained as a favorite as the day went on. Hops were certainly prevelant in comparison to the rest of the sours of the day. Citrus and bubbly soap hops, with a milder tartness that lends to a unique hoppy sour finish. I love this for its uniqueness. The Brett was kind of subdued. But let it develop and you lose the hops. Regardless nice brew.

EricTeusink (631) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Forsyth County Bumble Tasting. Pours clear pear with minimal white head. Grape, earth, and touch of hops on nose. Boozey sweet earth flavor. Not overly sour. Less live than most wilds. Interesting hopped version of wild ale. Bottle - Shared by Westmeister

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle from Luekens in Clearwater, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Light, hazy color of gold and wheat chaff with a thick white pillow head. Head lasted and laced like crazy. The powerful aroma of brett, lemon citrus, grass, hay, cereal, and barnyard was amazing. The taste was the same with the brett dominant in creating a barnyard funk with the balanced malts to dial it down a little. So damn good. Light body, refreshing, dry, and crisp. I could drink this all day (with some TUMS of course.)

Idiosynkrasie (3228) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
375ml bottle. Almost clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Sourish, hoppy and bretty aroma. Taste is mildly sourish, slightly bretty, minimally citrusy hoppy. Not overly complex, disappointing.
