Pour from a bottle is a nice cloudy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is a little sour but has a few hints of fruit. Taste is nice and sour with a little citrus zing that leaves a dry after taste.

12-ish oz bottle (12.7?). Extremely funky smell, very heavy on the brett. Taste is similarly funky, but mouthfeel is nice and light. Heavy on the citrus, I think. Really nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks wchesser! Pours a clear golden orange with thin white head. Smell is somewhat of a strange doughiness with orange citrus splashes and a bit of floral notes. Taste is comes of as light, crisp, touch vinegar, orange, bretty. Palate is a bit thin, but overall this is a lightly tart refreshing beer with not a terrible amount of complexity. One negative would be that this was perhaps a bit better in its prime. Still love trying whatever Crooked Stave can crank out.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow-orange with good, foamy, white head, chunky lacing / Nose of citrus & tropical fruit, brett, cream / Light body, spritzy, watery, good balance and bitterness on finish / Thin flavors of apple, lemon, tangelo, straw, light horse blanket / Fine, but doesn’t live up to the excellent nose.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, cloudy straw yellow, light lacing, film of head resides. Aroma: citrus, earthy yeast, grapes, brett, wine, oak, berry on exhale. Palate: light body, light carbonation, tart, dry finish. Taste: light sweet fruit into fruity tartness and even sour. Overall, awesome beer, citrus almost suggests hoppiness but not really any to speak of. Super drinkable and refreshing, unique and delicious.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk, oak, and citrus. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart citrus, light funk, sour finish. Very impressive.

Bottle last night, pours translucent amber, I was able to keep the yeast in the bottle on this one, thin white head. Lots of citrus in nose, some light must. Taste has a nice sour from beginning to end, lemon, orange zest. Light body, light acid. Made for a good sipping beer last night.
