2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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...
