Bottle from Scott - thanks! Pours a bright and vibrant hazy yellow with a small froth of white foam that quickly reduces to a slick of bubbles. Steady and lively carbonation. Aroma is light wheat-type grain with funk, lemon, minimal tart, and gueuze-like characteristics. Taste is not as complex as the flavor suggests and is heavy on the sour with tart, wheat, and lemon. Clean mouthfeel that gos a bit watery into the finish. Hugely flavorful sub 5% ABV beer. I really like this beer. The brewer has an original vision and is pursuing it; a few tweaks to the beer and it could easily go from good to world class amazing. Looking forward to trying more Crooked Stave offerings.
Flight from the source during ck1 birthday trip. Lightly fruity, lightly sour. Pink pour is always attractive. Too subtle, but possibly that is the purpose. 13.3 beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Beautifully colored gem. Ruby red vibramt clear pour. Light taste. Super sour and amazing! Itzjerm (3076) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Rose petal version. Tart but very approachable. Tang with a nice herbal flavor. Nice light sour aroma.

375, capped. Pours a cloudy bright medium golden amber with a loose white head that sticks around. Big candied lemon nose with hints of cotton candy. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Candied lemon and hints of cotton candy on the mid palate. Mild tart sweet finish. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, murky golden yellow color with dark ripe banana hues and a half finger off-white head that quickly dissapears. Minimal spotty lacing.
Musty, slightly funky aroma with a nice farmhouse/barnyard presence along with toasted oak, lactic funk and musty brett. Almost wheat/Berliner like with sourdough bread, citrus juice, wild yeast and a lactic cheese character. Lots of lemon citrus character and the lactic funk stands out more as it warns.
Full bodied, especially for the style with a really nice balance of barrel, dry, musty brett, citrus acidity and lactic funk. Crisp and refreshing with lemon acidity nicely complimenting the dry, musty brett. Dry toasted oak carefully blended in, melding nicely and not overpowering the other notes. Nice carbonation/spritzer like with the lactic funk coming on strong in the back end with subtle cheesiness. Well balanced and easy to drink considering the complexity. I really enjoyed this one a lot.

23 oct 2025, bottle. Pink. Nose is faintly tart and a bit yeasty. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Tastes like smarties candy and faintly tart. Nice. procraste (472) - FRANCE - OCT 5, 2015
C’est une chouette bière et je me retrouve tout con lorsqu’il s’agit de décrire ma dégustation .. Avec les Sour/gueuze et autres, je vois bien qu’il y a des différences, mais les mots et le recul me manquent ... En tout cas, ça a l’avantage d’être léger ( moins plombant qu’une gros stout par exemple ) autant que parfumé tout en stimulant joyeusement les papilles.

The last of the original breed pulled from the cellar to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Nice smooth blend of subtle complexity. From Chad’s early nomadic efforts at Funkwerks. We both agreed that there has been nothing tastier! djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is stone fruit, wheat, funk, oak. Thin mouth, tart wheat, nice funk, clean, very nice.
