A zesty, lemony Brett nose with a hint of hops. And the taste.... ahhh, this beer wonderfully blends the trademark Crooked Stave wild ale flavor with hops. I love it when this brewery takes this approach (..then again, I love most anything they do!) A nice dry finish, for a very drinkable beer. I think this beer can attract sour fans and hop-heads, and hopefully expand the horizons for both.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Smells herbal, citrusy, lemony. Brett. Interesting for sure. Almost smells dry-hopped.

Taste - Lemony and herbal tang. Very bretty. Bright tanginess. Orange citrus flavor. Really delicious.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - I could drink a ton of this. Truly excellent.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

375 mL bottle poured into a HF wine glass. Courtesy of Denverbeerdrinker. Served at 50F

A: Coudu straw gold body with a thin 1" head. Tiny bubbles and the head dies quickly. Mild lacing on the glass. Gentle swirling regenerates about 50% of the head.

S: Pale ale all the way. Mild dry hopping and a touvch of earthy funk and lactic sour.Very nice alteration on the style.

T: Sweet, tart, hoppy...what is this? Lemonade, bitter citrus, sweet roasted malt. Elements of lemony funk, barnyard and a touch of wood. Complex, but well balanced. Brett must be lambicus and bruxellensis focused.

M: Light and well carbonated. Clen finish with mild sweetness. It lingers ever so slightly, but the tartness clenses the palate.

O: Amazing example of twisting a classic style. Love this bee. Chad...more please?
