Bottle from Belmont Station, PDX via Patrick. Pours a medium orange, very clear, little to no head. Fluffy, yeasty, dry, funk. Body brief but tart, finish has a fruity sweetness. Grapes, cherries? Really nice.

beerbaaron (1315) - Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy light to medium orange. Small frothy white head, fairly lasting with some lace. Aroma is yeasty, brett, light fruity, light peppery, sour and woody, white wine. Flavor follows. Medium plus body. Pleasantly tart and sour, some funkiness, little dryness. All that and yet still so very easy drinking.

Marheb (2273) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Des céréales rustique et une explosion d’agrumes surettes animés par une effervescence vigoureuse qui s’attendrie avec le temps. Bière de soif exceptionnelle.

ThirstyBird (1674) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with a very white head. Smell is farmhouse like with a nice malt base, fruit, some citrus but with a hint of wood and lambic as well. Taste is very subtle flavors...wood, citrus, apricot ending puckeringly dry and woody. The body is light but slick with effervescent carbonation. A real treat.

Pours hazy golden with a thin head that disappears completely. Aroma is burlap, funk, sharp cheese, dust, band-aid. Flavor is funk, lemon, burlap, big sour lemon, sharp cheddar, cellar/must/mold, and a grassy finish. Very nice.

Wish lister. Cloudy orange. musty aroma. With extended oak aging critters and all, this really blurs the line between a Saison/farmhouse ale/wild ale. Heavy oak present in the aroma and especially flavor. Full flavored and bodied for 6% beer. Tart and fruity, with a dry peppery finish. I like this very much. 4.25 if I could.

375 ml bottle, 2013 Vintage, Batch 8. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like citrus peel, bready/grainy malt, oak, hay, green grapes, and some pear. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, but there’s also some tropical fruit and funky/mustiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s easy to drink and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It’s a good tart, fruity and funky brew! I’ve enjoyed the few Crooked Stave brews I’ve had a chance to try so far, and I’ll have to make a point to try more in the future! $8.99 a bottle.

Beaver (1328) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
750ml bottle - batch 7/11, bottle 355/1599. Pours a hazy golden amber with a big fizzy rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is interesting - soft brett, wood, floral notes and some fruits.

The flavor is sweet tangy fruits with some earthy kind of funky brett that is a little acidic. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I like what the brett barrel adds to the saison. One of my favorites from Crooked Stave.

Poured a nice golden color with a thumbs width white head. Sweet and a little tart in aroma along with the funk. Flavor was great. A nice sweet malt backbone to it, some juicy pear, and a nice tartness to it. Medium bodied, smooth, and kind of creamy mouthfeel. Really liked this one a lot, would love to drink again.
