Another really beer from Crane. Pours dark amber with a thick soapy white head. Aroma reminds me of a tripel, quite a bit of spice. Brett adds some really appealing funk to an otherwise basic beer. TH28 (497) - - FEB 11, 2017
750ml bottle. 2016 vintage. Appearance: Cloudy brownish read, hazy, with a really thick, fluffy off white foam head that leaves a nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong funky brett aromas, hay, grassy, earthy. Can’t pick up any malt notes.
Taste: Light, toasted maltiness that turns to a lightly funky brett character that is high on hay and grass. Brett dominates the flavor, but is relatively light in intensity.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: Relatively dry with some toasted malt notes and strong funky brett retronasal aromas.
Overall: A fairly simple beer that lets the brett yeast showcase it’s character. Maltiness is light and a bit thin, but the funky hay and grassy yeast notes add complexity. This beer would probably benefit from an extra 6 to 12 mths of age as the brett continues to develop. jrob21 (3932) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2016
750 from Matt. Amber caramel color. A little astringent medicinal flavor. Lots of fruit, mainly cherry once you get past that. Left with a long fruit flavor on the tongue. Fruity woody sort of aroma. Interesting once you get past that original medicinal part. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2016

hazy amber, dense white head lasts. Toasty grained nose, light caramel amidst dusty Brett notes. Dirty esters up front, metallic red fruit accented by high co2 effervescence. Frothy mid palate, confused with some sugar, toasty grain, and heavy co2 bitterness.
Overall the beer was good. It had a unique taste, but it was good. The appearance looked like an amber beer.

Had this twice on tap during a recent trip to KC. Once at Ruins Pub and once at Beer Kitchen. This is a clear light amber. Funk is slight making this quite approachable. Interesting take on the style with classic roasty notes present. theisti (4248) - Kansas, USA - MAY 16, 2016
~8 oz half pour tulip draft at Crane Brewing Company in Raytown, Missouri. The pour is a hazed brown copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is a bit of funk along with big, clean malty sweetness. The taste is mostly about the strong malt sweetness, followed by a leathery Brett funk and closing with the heavier malt. The palate is medium bodied with soft natural carbonation and a sweet dry finish. Nice. RobertDale (7052) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Sample at Parkville Microbrew Fest 2016. Comes a cloudy reddish gold with a small white head. Aroma and taste of fruit, yeast, and grass. Very good. Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Draft sample at Parkville fest. Hazy to cloudy golden amber color, white head. Aroma is floral and dusty. Taste is sweet and dry. Nice.
