375 ml bottle courtesy of JB. Bottled as "Ocvlvs Dexter" - description "Sour Golden Ale Brewed With Vignole Grapes Aged In French Oak Casks". ABV 8.9%. Theoretically same beer as listed. The pour is a light golden, with a small white head. The aroma is Brett barnyard straight off, lightly sour, wood and lemon citrus. The taste is bright lemon citrus, white grapes, blended nicely with a soft funk sour, and finishes with a bit of an unexpected sugar sweetness. The palate is medium bodied, lower level of soft carbonation, and a funky sour soft finish. Decent, interesting. Thanks for sharing this one John.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from robloc303 (thanks a lot, Rob), pours a cloudy golden orange with a tiny white head - just some bubbles really. Aroma isn’t the strongest, but the subtle notes are very pleasant, giving off notes of wild yeasts, grape skins, and white wine. Flavour is very potent, bringing out lots of dusty tart green grapes, tons of souring bacteria, and dry white wine. Very sour, vinous and slightly vinegary on the finish, as well as a bit acidic. ABV is no where to be found. Decent stuff, but the acidity is a bit much.

Bottle - thanks Brewthusiast! Pours clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Decent lacing. Aroma is oak, Brett, vinous, barnyard. Flavor is fruity and oaky, initially sweet but drying out quickly. Pretty decent tartness comes on strong in the middle. Lemon, oak tannins, fruit (grapes), and funk all play together. Some tannic oaky astringency lingers to the finish along with puckering sourness. Medium body, pretty flat carbonation. Tasty tasty tasty; possibly my favorite from Crooked Stave so far.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy peach-colored pour with no head. The nose is a mélange of fallen fuzzy fruits, white wine and oaken funkiness. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes big-time sourness with fruity and vinous undercurrents. Tart, tannic, tongue-numbing finish. Wow. Very nice. Thanks, ctipping, for the share!
