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

StefanSD (2072) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is big with mixed fruits and bubble gum. The taste is tart with lemons in the forefront followed by apples and sour grapes set in a bready pils malt base. The palate was just a bit on the thin side and the carbonation was lively. Finished a bit short. Overall: Very nice tasty little saison, but the $10.00 price tag made this a very poor value.

From CO brother, shared with ck1 on the patio in the final afternoon of the family holiday weekend. Thanks Ken! Hazy orange pour. Heavy oaky funk. Tangy; cherries, brett. Not as good as the Vieille. ck1 says opposite.

Yorker (1091) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are oranges, brett, wine, and oak - with a slightly tart finish.

hopbag (60) - - JUL 8, 2014
Solidly sour with a very nice roundness of flavor. Hint of bready malt balances it out in the back. General tangy fruit flavor. Some funk and yeast in the aftertaste. "Unripe pineapple" is a nice term from another review. Mostly lactic but there’s some sharp vinegar. Really complex and polished. Seems like more of a sour/wild ale than a saison, but if I search I can find some clove or spice.

6/28/14 first ever Crooked Stave beer as I wander through the world of sours! Bottle traded to me from Brooklyn. Bottle Pour is copper with a thin layer of white bubbles. Smell is light tartness and funk. Flavor more tart than smell indicates. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Grapefruit nose. Tart and refreshing flavor, very crisp and light with light funk and good balance.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Good, solid stinky farmy nose, with some light sour fruit. Clear medium straw color. Sharp fruit: light pear, kiwi, and sour apples / bitterness kicks in and threads its way throughout / thins out in final, with good lingering bitterness. Thin body, with light acidity. Very good stuff. The bitterness floats around the mouth, abd then sourness in moderated.

drsandman (189) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a deep orange with slight brown hue, smallish clean white head quickly dissipates. Aroma is sour grape, vinegar, oak, funky Brett barn. Taste is quite tart, acidic, and dry.. Without being too much of any one of those. Lots of soured tropical fruits, juicy yet dry. Great stuff

Hazy gold pour, smaller head. Funk, tropical fruit, oak in aroma. Vinous, tropican fruit, lemon rind, barnyard funk, woody, acidic. Easy drinking on a hot afternoon.
