Mep3222 (579) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Aroma of lactic sour, some funk, and lemony orange citrus. Taste is the same. Prob 50/50 lactic sour to funky sour. Has a bit more earth was than I like in a sour, but still pretty nice. Maybe 4 of 10 sour. Citrus flavors come through pretty strong. Finish has an odd bitterness of earthy funk. Not my favorite sour from crooked stave, but still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375ml bottle at home. Clear golden color at the beginning, hazy when I poured the rest of it from the bottle, with white head. Aroma is funky dusty bretty, citrusy fruity, orange. Taste is light sweet, sour and bitter. funky and fruity, sour-acidic juicy red oranges.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
0.375l bottle from 2013#2 brought home from 2D2dspuma. It fizzes quote loudly this one. On the pour itís cloudy and kinda straw golden in color. Head-vise itís as mentioned fizzing, quickly faded into a thin filmy white thing. It smells really lovely though. Lots of acidic lemons and lemon juice, itís definitely bretted all the way this and I get white currants, gooseberries, green strawberries and itís in general really fruity and inviting on the, what I will call, a lovely nose. Tastes even better! Same this is refreshing! It has a above average, not aggressive but high carbonation level and it feels thin oily in the mouth. Tart fruits and berries goes on in the taste as well. Itís so lightdrinkable this. I could probably drink this a whole evening without getting too tired of it. That brett has really done some wonders on this. It has a lingering bitter and slightly sour oranges tail thatís not letting go easily. Iím really really enjoying this one! 16.08.2014

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Sample at The Source. Hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, funky yeast and herbs. Light-bodied with flavors of citrus, berries, yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a lingering funky citrus aftertaste. Good beer all around.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of tangerine, lemon peel, barn yard, lemon meringue. Flavours are initially tart lemon pith, white grapes, Brett then mellowed out with balanced funky farmhouse flavours. Nice light finish. Cheers adza!

emacgee (4146) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours a soft and hazy bright straw yellow with two fingers of coaxed creamy white head. Very nice aroma, floral with lightly bready notes and a hint of stone fruit. Bright acidity and a touch of lychee, horse blanket, and overripe myer lemon juice. A bright and forward acidity shows at the front of the mouth with some citrus and earthy notes. Very light bodied and dry with a gripping acidity.
