Crooked Stave IPA
12oz can - not what I expected with a hazy, wheat yellow. Pleasant aroma with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, lesser floral and light grassiness. Delicious freas flavors but a bit too much juicy tropical hops for my liking. However, it is well made and I'm shocked the overall score isn't higher.

Tap (Pogromcy Meatów, Wrocław). Kwas w aromacie zbalansowany drewnem beczki. Smak kwaśny, ściągający ale mimo to piwo jest dość gładkie, mało kwaśne w odbiorze. Ogólnie bardzo dobry kwas ba.

Crooked Stave Petite Sour (Peach)
375mL bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a barely-there white head. Aroma is funk, peach, and oak. Taste is tart; peach, funk, oak, some lemon, and just a little white grape [6.5/10]. Pleasant acidity. Medium body. Moderate carbonation - maybe closer to soft. Crisp-ish mouthfeel that feels a little thinner than it should. Taste is very subdued with a subtlety to the fleshy peach. [3/5]

Crooked Stave Von Pilsner
Pours a hazy straw color. Its slight sweetness is well balanced with a crisp a bitterness. Notes of biscuit and citrus. Not a stand out beer but heads above the great majority of boring, characterless pilsners that seem to be out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crooked Stave St. Bretta (Fall)
Milder than other St. Brettas, moderately tart with lots of orange essence but not much funk. Citrus and sourdough bread on the front, followed by orange and a slight grainy sweetness. Barnyard comes in late and faint. Decent, but not as strong as other beers in the series.
