1.5 year old bottle. Very strong aroma of fruit and nectar, sweet but not sugary. Has an alluring cloudy haze that begs you to take a sip! Taste is extremely tart and dry with an active fizziness that I wasn’t expecting. Perfect blend of a sour and pale ale, with each style’s defining characteristics present yet never overbearing. This is my new favorite beer ever!

375mL bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. Citrus, lemon, some funky yeast, band-aid notes from the Brett. Very tasty and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske: På årets sidste aften bliver årets bedste øl drukket. Flot hel gul let diset øl med et cremet skumhoved. Duft af brett og citrus fra galaxy. Smagen er ekstrem frugtet fra brett men dejlig humlet så det ikke bliver for meget. Kunne drikke denne øl i store mængder hvis jeg var CEO for et finansselskab.

Awesome aroma clean not heavy. Love the hop taste that doesn't last because it is light and crisp and balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Falling Rock. Old fashion saison, slightly sour with hints of citrus and grapefruit. There is a little bitterness but I absolutely love it. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, brought to me by my awesome bro-in-law mmmIPA as a surprise, and shared with my beautiful wife. Very lively pour ending in thick meringue atop a hazy golden body, with curtains of lace draping the sides of the glass. Aroma is gooseberries and funk, unh-unh-unh, FUNK Y’ALL!! Amazing light crackery malts support tart juicy gooseberry cat pissy hops with a disco-full of funk, and dry woody traits with a pinch of dusty white pepper in the end. I will spend the next several days of my life scheming to get more of this stunning creation.

WOWZERZ. Thanks Chad. Smells fantastic like grapefruits on a beach. Pours nice and hazy (yeast didn’t settle after being transported). Taste is sweet, tart and champagne like. The dry hopping opens things up a lot and makes me think I’m drinking a soured pale ale.

Wow is this one complex. The brett adds some awesome tart character, but immediately balanced with juicy citrus from the hops. Some pear and banana on the palate. The oak is around to balance things out even more - and that it does.

This one pours a light bodied clear tangerine with a one finger, soapy and sticky head. The nose is dry, citrusy, and has a nice amount of Brett. It has a little dried peach skins to it. It smells pretty similar to Luciernaga from Jolly Pumpkin. The flavors are dry and fruity up front. There are dried peach and apricot notes before it goes into an off dry Brett character. The level of Brett is perfect in my opinion. It has great and well rounded flavors without any aspect really dominating. It drinks light and off dry and leaves just enough Brett in the after taste. Overall this is a near perfect beer for the style. I could drink this all the time if it were more easily available. Great job by Crooked Stave once again.
