Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Thanks to whomever shared this! Pours a golden appearance with a white head. A bit musty, champagne-like, funky, white grape, pear aroma. Flavor is super drinkable with notes of apples, light banana, spicy yeast, light funk, and flowers.

Bottle. Slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Sweet malt, pear, white wine, and some lacto on the aroma. Flavor is like a golden ale with a hint of tartness and light fruit, oak, and white wine. Mildly tart. Medium body with good carbonation. Enjoyable but not that sour.

Pours GOLD!

The aroma is unripe strawberry, light funk, some mild lemon & light hay.

The flavor is dominated by sweet tart character. Itís moderately dry, a touch husky, a bit fruity with a pleasant but low level of bitterness.

ryecatcher (990) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle (16.9 oz). Pours a medium, hazy straw gold, creamy white head with excellent retention and solid lacing. Nose is funky Brett, barnyard, straw, earthy, minerals, daffodils. Mouth is medium full, creamy, tart up front, mellows out mid-range, chardonnay, dry grape juice, breadiness, hay, lemongrass. A very nice sour that Iím drinking on an empty stomach... but itís good enough to be liquid dinner at 1:30 in the AM.

On tap at pour. Have not been disappointed by this brewery yet. Hits all the right notes for me: interesting, refreshing, and I-want-more. Pours a hazy golden. Saison notes are there but right alongside the sour and the funk. Subtle all around. Really well balanced. Citrus as well as notes of white wine. Love the tartness happening. Lots of bubbles. Delicious.

Hazy lemon yellow pour with two fingers of white head. Very nice aroma, funky and tannic with some peachy notes and a bright acidity. Very tart in the mouth with a soft tannic bite and round carbonation. Tropical fruit and vinous with a light body and dry finish.

jeremyh70 (873) - Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw color with a small white head with tiny bubbles that settles to a bit of film and ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light lemon, wet hay and a mild spiciness. Taste of lemon zest, mild tartness followed by sweetness, earthy funk that comes across with a bit of perceived spiciness and finishes with some white grape and a nice breadiness. Finishes dry and slightly tart. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and effervescent carbonation. Not as tart as I expected which was fine. Also not very complex but still mouthwatering and good.
