some mild brett and sourness in the nose. lots of esters bouncing around, including fruity/pear notes. hazy medium honey color, head drops to lacing quickly. the assertive bitterness is challenged by a bitter response, building towards the finish. earthy and farmy. but none of the wild characteristics gets too out of hand, too dominant. the intense wild characteristics seem to counter one another to find balance.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Better than jolly pumpkin bam by a long shot in my opinion, drank them next to eachother at backcountry. More brett funk and barnyard, nice fruit esters in back. Excited to age a few bottles and see what happens

tenacubus (14) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Smells and tastes like sweet tarts in the best way a sour beer can. Nice white head that stays for days and a good tannic finish.

spacecube (1231) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
355ml bottle, pours white gold with plenty of haze and a bubbly white head, aroma has caramalt, piney & citrus hop, spicy yeast notes and lovey tart lambic zest. Lots of variety in the aromas and brought together and balanced with skill. Body is light, texture is thin, finish is dry and mild sour, carbonation is average to lively. A great beer to end 2014!

Bottle, courtesy of a trade with robloc303. Split with Pat and Sean Tommy. Pours a murky golden orange with fluffy white head and soapy lace. Nose of lemon rind, horse blanket, lactic acid, stone fruit. Medium body, nicely tart. Great lemon and funk flavor. Well balanced beer. Another great Crooked Stave.

phaleslu (7386) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Draft at the Barrel Cellar. Pours a hazed pale gold with a small white head with larger bubbles. The aroma is super funky, with lemon, orange, apricot, oak, herbs, and spices. Some bready malts and vinous notes, as well. Flavor of lemon, oak, grass, sawdust, funk, apricot, peach, and subtle spice. Tart and funky, with moderate to medium carbonation and a light to medium body. Wow, this was excellent.
