Aroma is intense sourness and underling mild sweetness and earthiness. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit/sour fruit, malts and a mix of tart and earthy in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of brett upfront, some feet, and some herbal notes. Flavour is very tart and acidic, with intense ascorbic notes, lofs of tartness and subdued brett character. Harsh and difficult to drink. This one is not doing it for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pungent nose. Gueuze-like. Lemon zest, musty funk, earthy fresh soil, lambic notes. Taste is lemon citrus, chalky, tart/sour, dry. Light body, light carbonation. Would've liked a bit more carbonation. Regardless, a nice sour beer from the USA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Armsby Abbey, 10/6/16, as the "Dry Hop" version (don’t recall which hops).
Very bright, maize-golden, with light haze and a medium-sized, white head atop showing moderate retention.
Very strong citrus rind in the nose, with even some lemongrass and unripe pineapple/nectarine notes. Light vanilla, cracker and strong perfume element to it. Somewhat sharp and grainy, as seems to be characteristic of the brewery. No alcohol and no off-notes, but just very intensely citric with no real softness, funk or balance.
In the mouth, it’s even more given to this heavy lemon character. Biting lemon rind, mixes with dominant lemon oil notes and there’s no real respite from it in the form of supple malt or tannin or anything. Grainy, rather thin, very dry and nearly astringent on the finish with low complexity and lots of tartness. Crooked Stave continues to incredibly underwhelm....

Bottle. Pour is light yellow with small ring of soapy white foam. Aroma is earthy and lightly Funky with some faint tripe. A bit of citrus hop too. Flavor is much more tart up front than expected with a steady decline in tartness. Middle is earthy and bretty dry as the tartness fades. Finish is dry floral hop and lingering lemon.
