Bottle at Frank’s. Pours a deep, hazy peach body with nice minimal lacing. Aroma is beautiful tropical fruits, tart citrus, pineapple and funk. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of passionfruit, melon, funky citrus fruits, musky lemon and a nice sour character. Super sessionable and perfectly balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A tart, fruity, floral and slightly funky orange beer. Original, tasty, refreshing. Lovely.
How: Bottle 750ml, shared at post-HF FoFA 2013.
The look: Cloudy pale orange body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is mostly very fruity with all kinds of exotic fruits along with a mild scented flowery component and only light funky and oaky notes. In mouth the beer offers a medium body, crisp texture, plenty of carbonation. Taste is again dominantly fruity. Exotic fruits, pomegranate, tart lemons, flowers, some bright and clean funk. An assertive tartness with bright flavors that makes the beer very refreshing. Very harmonious flavors. I really liked this one, my favorite of all the Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett I’ve had so far. I’d drink this beer on a regular basis, too bad it is as rare as a dance club hit song about the happiness of a 14th of marriage.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has a ton of lavender, violet and other floral notes as well as some oranges. The flavor is also great. I get a ton of lavender character, as well as some light tartness and a hint of brett. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Easy to drink and delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy dark orange with a medium rocky white head. Aroma is nice and fruity with juicy sticky aromas of plum, grape, dry hopped floral tones, mango, and succulent peach. Flavor is nicely balanced, with a nice interplay of juicy sweetness and dry hoppy bitterness. Good mild carbonation too. Nice juicy plum and grape and mango flavors give a nice sticky tropical tone, then there’s this drying bitterness of dry hopped earthy floral and tropical hoppiness. Medium but palatable dry bretty sourness throughout.
