750ml bottle shared by jmborggren. Thanks! Unfiltered chunky golden yellow tan. Sour lemon lime tones. Boldly sour, intense US Sour action. Apricot, plum, pear, lemon, fruity tones. Not overboard, has a nice quaffable palate. Has some nice depth with the 7% alcohol, a nice edge.

Served in a Crooked Stave tulip. Nose is bright fruity notes with pomegranate and, to a greater degree, passion fruit. Light lavender in the background. Light and tart. Really drinkable. Took some restraint not to treat this one like a session beer.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy copper with a small head. Aroma of lavender, pomegranate, some Brett tartness, plus caramel malts, and light hops. Flavor the same with a nice pomegranate and Brett finish. Average texture. A good beer.

Bottle with thanks to Boost! Shared with friends. Pours hazy golden orange, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is quite floral, lots of oak, herbal, some Bretty funk and earthy basement aromas. Flavor is dry, floral, funky and just a light tartness, herbal. I guess lavender. Light body. Really really tasty.

Pours fuzzy orange , small white head that fades instantly .
Smell is very floral , sweet, even soapy ( in a good way )
Taste is way less sour ? brett than expected . Very flowery , sweet - in a green way - very much passion fruit , light mouthfeel , yet enough taste .

Bottle (750 ml). From Scott, thanks! Clear bright golden/orange with a small/medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is of lavender, brettanomyces, red fruits and nice tartness. Taste is fruit oriented (red fruits) with lavender/floral notes, brettanomyces, nice tartness and a lactic presence. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Fruity and amazingly drinkable/thirst quenching.

Thanks Steve for sending this to me as a part of the Crooked Stave membership box. Enjoyed 25CLs at cellar temp.
A - Very golden orange, and a 3 finger creamy head..fades but remains pretty sticky.
S - Smells very floral and full of herbs and fruity nose but hard to place.
T - Really nice Brett funk all of the right texture and notes. Every floral and pomegranate notes really comes through really really awesome. Rose hips, pomegranate, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry all rolled into one beer with tart chalky enamel stripping tartness but not sour..just really nice and dry.Quite perfect and very close to HFS Flora. It has all of the right notes of dryness and with the added fruit, it’s nearly perfect.
M - Dry, full-bodied and loaded with enough berry and floral notes that persistently continue for miles
O - A perfect brett beer. I don’t think this could get any better.
