3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the new brewpub, amazing place btw... Pours a bit of a murky golden brown with a small white head... Aroma is very orangy with notes of funk, breads, doughy... Flavor is of orange bread, carbonation is lacking... Decent good interesting beer but my least favorite I’ve had...

Poured from a 375ml bottle. The nose is lemony, citrusy rind, dusty. The flavor is bready, musty/horse blanket, juicy orange, orange pith. A tasty wit with a rustic character that I am enjoying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a pale yellow with a white head. Nose is pronounced brett, egg and cob webb, light lemon. Taste has some tartness to it, lighter body with a strong carbonation and fairly dry finish. Brett isn’t quite as pronounced, sweeter. Juicy lemon, dusty brett through the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is Lon, earthy, peppercorn, cat urine, horse blanket, straw, spice. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with an astringent following and clean finish. Overall this is a decent saison-like whitbier but is a bit heavy on the cat piss essence.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A lovely beer. It pours a hazy yellow. To look at it, I liken it to looking at the Sun through a cold fall mist on some historic field in Belgium. Yes, this beer made me lyrical. The aroma is a whiff of the sour and bread like brett yeast. First sip hits you with a coy and flirty sourness before your treated to some honest and good ol’boy beer flavour at the back. This beer is a treat and those Colorado boys are damned clever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Looks very nice. The nose is unlike most witt’s as it’s the sharper citric and bretty aromas that dominate the nose. Very tart flavour initially which lead thoughts towards gueuze rather than witt.. Very pleassnt I must say. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with a citrus-bitter aftertaste. Refreshing!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Kurtkeller 011: Crooked Stave-tastic 01 on 05/02/2014. This beer pours a hazy golden amber color with a medium thick fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, bretty yeast and spices. Light-bodied with flavors of pithy citrus, funky brett, cherries and oak. The finish is fruity with an orange peel and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy pale golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out barnyard funk, oranges and citrus zest. Flavour is super funky, almost like a gueuze, with secondary notes of citrus and wheat. Super dry, funky, and amazingly refreshing and drinkable. My favourite of the St Bretta series. Phenomenal stuff.
