alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle; a dark, dull gold. Brett aroma that smelled a bit like dirty diaper (albeit I am new to Brett). Flavor was bretty, tarty and a bit hoppy. Didn’t come together to well for me.

Bomber from friends cellar. Dark amber and hazy with a small lasting head. Looks great. Musty sweet and sour with mango aroma. Puckering bretty mouthfeel with medium acidity. Meh. Ill stick to suerette.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Cloudy pale orange. Lovely funky sour aroma. Orangy and apricot fruitiness. Smooth palate. Very fruity in the mouth. Alas this was the final pour from the bottle, so was way yeastier than I’d like. Not as crisp in the palate certainly. There was some odd herbal aspect to the aroma too. Interesting, wouldn’t mind trying some of the variations of this.

Draught at Fate Brewing. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, yeast, earthy notes, ripe peach and grass. Bitter finish with hops, citrus, earthy notes and grass. Exquisite brew.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle shared by David. Thanks. This was interesting. I really enjoyed the nose, but I felt like the flavor fell off a bit. Lots of lemon acidity. Nice bretty and hoppy balance in nose. A little overly dusty bretty with a biting acidity and medium bitter finish. Slightly muddled mouthfeel.

djd07 (3326) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to Nick. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with thick frothy white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong citrus and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong funk, light citrus, oak, and nice dry finish. Good

cpetrone84 (1330) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with a tight white head and a few larger bubbles. Nose is heavy citrus bret, lots of orange juice aromas an some citrusy hops. Some light notes of leathery dusty bret as well. Taste is similar, not quite as bright. The citrus is all around with dusty leathery bret in back. Light bitterness and some hop citrus with a moderate carbonation and a very light, delicate body.

Bottle #462 Thanks to crajun for taking this off my "wants" list! Pours clear yellow with a fleeting, small, white head. Tart apple yeasty Brett nose. The flavor is tart, fruity and clean. Spritzy, easy drinking, refreshing.

beersorcerer (35) - Armpit of the Panhandle, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2014
375mL bottle from Davidson’s Liquors Highlands Ranch, CO. Super funk aroma: underside of cut grass after drying in sun, back of the stable smell, funky Brett yeast laden beer with more Brett to boot, and throw in the boot of a lemon farmer as well. Big head of foam settles into a bubble garter at the edges, pale orange/yellow haze. Straw sour taste with a an oaky overtone a a whiff of the hops. And it’s my last bottle of Crooked Stave, makes me want more - perhaps start sniffing...
