COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After long years of the beer community discussing hops to exhaustion, yeast is finally getting a glimpse of the spotlight following what seemed to be a lengthy Batman-like existence: outcast, living in the shadows, not getting enough credit for his work. However, the importance of fermentation is no news to Chad from Crooked Stave, a.k.a. the king of Hipsters, who has been fondling with various fermenting agents for longer than most people have been drinking. So it was that on a beautiful – yet excruciatingly hungover – Wednesday Mr Yakobsen came to Amager to bombard us simpletons with his knowledge on all things yeasty, and especially, bretty. Due to stubbornness from our end, we still insisted the brew carried a motherf#&@ of hops, despite intents of a brett forward beer. The answer to what ingredient won the battle lies within this bottle. But in our opinion, we are all winners.

Smells primarily of brett, funk and light citrus. Very light orange color with a pale white head. Taste has way more hops than the aroma would indicate. A light amount of brett balances this out but taste wise, this is more of an IPA than a sour. Light palate, tinge of carbonation at the end. This was ok, glad I didn’t pay too much for it.

Bottle served in a glass, this ale was a hazy light to medium yellow in the glass, there was a creamy, white cover that was lasting, there was nice partial rings and fingers of lacing, the nose had aromas of lemon, lemon skin, countryside with faint wild flowers, citrus hops, faint grapefruit, fermented citrus fruit, some barnyard and earth, there was little sweetness on the nose, the flavors were lemon and grapefruit, light malt, lemon skin and pith, sour fruit, faint wood, a touch of spice (not pepper), little sweetness, there was lemon sour with a small tartness at the finish that was drying with lemon pith trailing, the mouth feel was light on the mouth, it was creamy and drying, there was lively carbonation, I enjoyed the nose more than the flavor, the brett was obvious in this drink, a nice beer.

500ml bottle pours a hazy pale straw color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing behind. Aroma is citrus with some hints of caramel and yeasty notes. Taste is a light lemon tartness with a citrus hop bitterness and light fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. Overall, a bit of a hoppy sour ale which is still well balanced. Good stuff!
