Taste - tart from the beginning with citrus notes including lemon and grapefruit.

Served in a stemmed glass
The hazy, lemon yellow liquid was topped by small white head that quickly dissolved. No lacing whatsoever.
The aroma was deeply complex and displayed many qualities of a traditional gueuze. Super funky and musty with lots of wet hay and barnyard character. Strong, tart lemony notes came through as well. Quite oaky.
Like the nose, the flavor was also remarkably gueuze-like. Bright, lemony notes led things off and were followed by an intensely musty, barnyard-like presence. Super funky and earthy. The beer was anchored by a pale, crackery malt base. Lots of oak and acidity on the finish. The lemon notes and the sourness intensified with time but never overwhelmed the other the more subtle flavors. Dry, tannic, oaky notes came through on the finish.
The mouthfeel was soft and plush with a fine, mellow effervescence. Once the liquid settled on the palate, it turned smooth and creamy.
Crooked Stave's WWB Batch 60 is an amazingly dynamic beer that is funkier and more complex than most traditional gueuzes. I will definitely make a point to seek out more beers from this brewery.
