Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Almost completely opaque & murky golden color with a chunky & soapy white head with very nice retention, leaving nice, fat lacing behind. Aroma is loaded with Brett funk; mild wet cotton, barnyard hay, & some sweaty pineapple. Light zesty, leafy hops with a bit of lemon & citrus zest closing things out. Taste is nice & tart up front; some lemon, orange & faint pineapple tartness with some light ash, leaves, & citric hop notes. Brett is strong from mid-palate into the finish with cotton funk, mild barnyard, & some wet hay in the finish. Very nice, funky farmhouse style ale.

WOOF! This is probably the most pucker I've ever gotten out of a sour. Aroma has a weird innertube kind of smell. Flavor is bready and wheaty after you get past the pucker.

Palme (2993) - 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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, säuerlich, Brett. Geschmack fruchtig, säuerlich, malzig, leicht würzig.

DialSquare (2309) - 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.

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 (1528) - 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.
