Beaver (1428) - 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.

Denver2012 (24) - - FEB 26, 2012
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.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio)... Poured golden with a mild, quick forming head. Straight up good saisons with a nice funk and spice from the brett. Earthy and grainy with a hint of citrus and other acidity. Pepper spice and a hint of funk that balanced and just right. Enjoyed this quite a bit.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 Updated for the dry-hopped version. On tap at the Barrel Cellar. Pour is hazy golden orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Cheesy, waxy, citrusy aroma with notes of biscuit, wood, wheat, light funk, grass, white wine and pepper. Taste is lacto, vanilla, lemon peel, citrus zest, bread, yeast, grass, somewhat tangy, biscuity, waxy, and white pepper with a lightly bitter/spicy finish; ending pretty dry. Medium body with medium carbonation. I really like the dry-hopped version. Pretty nice saison and gets better every time I try it.

Pours a hazy peachy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. On the nose its tart vinous notes, touch of grainy stonefruit... the palate follows suit with a nice medium carbonation that keeps the body light but still slightly silky. Nice dusty backbone slightly gueuze like with lots of light lemony funk. I wish this was on my local shelves cause Id drink the shit out of it !!! THANKS adnielsen !

Pours gold, fluffy white head. Nice sour notes in the flavor and some sweetness at the same time. I get some guava, mango notes, oak notes, soft yeastiness. Nice.

Bottle. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of barnyard, lemon peel, grain, fruity funk and light white pepper. Taste is dry, light bitter and medium sour with notes of lemon, barnyard and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Buttery, lactic, damp oak nuances are immediately apparent in aroma and flavor.. Layers of green apple, white grape skins and mild funky yeast add complexity. Rather simple overall, though very well crafted and integrated. Lighter bodied, with medium carbonation and a short, dry, tart, mouthwatering finish. Solid overall... Definitely refreshing, without being overly sour at release. One of my favorite styles. A model definition of the style. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

PhillyCraft (3809) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle, pours hazy straw gold with tiny head that wasn’t lasting for long. Aromas of stone fruit, lemon skin, brett, and funk. flavor is most of the same with a strong peach or apricot sourness to it. Also has a lot of that rich crooked stave oak present. Really nice saison.
