Reallllllllly heavy bretty funk, subjugating almost all else within its realm. And that is awesome, because what little else remains is a nice juicy citrus character. Excellent stuff, left me impressed by Crooked Stave.
Funky tart citrus aroma. I can smell the blood oranges. See through yellow color. Surprisingly light and drinkable; the sour and funk does not show through much in the taste. I guess that's why it's the summer version. Palate a bit watery and lacking carbonation. I don't know what I'm missing but I just can't get into crooked stave. I'm trying.

September 19, 2015 - at Beaverton for the Rainbow event - draught. Very hazy yellow with a huge lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of pear, light brett and floral bitterness. Taste - even MORE brett - fantastic, if a bit raw. Good body, fruit in the finish, which is quick, brett fades pretty quickly. Nice one. willisread (3350) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2017 Draft at Mellow. Pours a clear light gold with a pillowy, white head. Light orange and lemon on the nose. Faint granola. Clean with creamy mouthfeel. Orange, nutmeg. Dryish finish. Nice. GarrettB (1602) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 27, 2016
September 14th, 2014 - Crooked Stave tastings are a special event, but this one comes courtesy of Perry’s Pizzeria, which has the Bretta Sour on tap. Orthodoxy declares that pizza can only be paired with a light lager, or maybe an IPA, but I wanted to test whether a sour might go nicely with the herbaceous pies being flung around here. The color is a practically iridescent blonde color, and fills the nearby atmosphere with a brettanomyces style aroma with hay (as I write this, tis the season of hay bales and hay rides), banana and a freshness that belongs to a barnyard. The beer delivers its flavors at a low hum, sour and tangy, with some pear on a thinner, more quenching palate. In many ways this tastes a great deal like a Berliner Weisse, but with more funk and acidity, but whatever category or hybridization of categories it falls under, this is good drinking - and pairs well with the pizza.

On draft at The Sovereign. Pours a hazy gold with a massive off white head that slowly withdrew leaving lots of lacing. Lemon aroma. Flavors of chamomile and citrus. Bitter finish.

0,15l on tap @ BeerTemple. Pours cloudy yellow with a high creamy head. Aroma is tarty malts, citrus and some soap. Flavor is fruity tarty malts with some citrus. Very nice indeed. drpimento (3642) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Kind of a lambic, citrus, tea aroma. Citrus shows up more in the flavor which also has a nice clean tartness.. Good finish. bubblehouse (1531) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Good and refreshing after a 3 hour hike. Nice blood orange taste. Goodbut not great.

A nice beer, but nothing that distiguishes it and makes it anything but. Nose is a little off from the taste and just a slight off flavor linger on the back end. Not my favorite thing from them, but nothing terrible either. pushkinwow (2793) - Ottawa, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle from HF. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a billowy off white head. Musty but fresh (oddly) brett aroma with some wheat, lemon, oak, some funk, high carbonation and moderate body, slightly bitter and light sourness, some apples and mild citrus on the finish.
