bluejacket74 (1678) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2014
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.

jhgrantjr (462) - Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2015
Poured from a bottle, hazy orange color with little head. Not bubbly. Nose is earthy, saison funk. Taste is lemon, tart, sour, but medium bodied. I think the aging in the oak barrel comes out at the end as it mellows out. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this style of beer so my mark is biased. This guy is amazing with yeast - if you like saison and barrel ageing you’ll love this. ’Cideresk’ be it.

drpimento (2773) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Tasty beer that is totally dominated by its sourness. Aroma also had some funk and citrus. Flavor was similar to nose, but losing most of the funk and gaining lemon. Barely pick up on the oak. Great body. Nice drinking brew.

Klimaet (1110) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a light hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of sweet esters, oaky sweet notes, citrussy, lemon zesty, some sweet green grapes, light moldy. Taste is tarter- citrussy, lemon zest, orange peel, some stone fruits, oaky sweetness, light saison yeast, once again a sweet vinous note in the back. Reminds me of a dessert wine mixed with a tart saison. Darn nice!
