Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, tropical fruit, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, tropical fruit, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice combination of tropical fruit and Brett characteristics.

4.3/5  rDev -1.6%

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy lemon color capped by a nice head that leaves copious amounts of lacing

Smell: Funky and musty with a range of fruit elements

Taste: Funky with growing pineapple and lemon element in the middle; woody, with more funk and tartness building in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A lively offering that combines both funk and fruit as well as some oak; very nice

remarkably overrated. I'm a huge fan of crooked stave, but this one is a bit messy, totally pedestrian. the problem is no brewery can live up to expectations like these, but this beer is a big let down for me. not to say it isn't delicious, because it is, but its levels below the best of crooked stave. the color is hazy yellow, pretty thick, but sporting a nice inch of white fluffy head that doesn't really fade much. the nose is a bit hoppy, alpha acids, but more bitterness that interesting characteristics. a little heavy on the wheat malt too, especially in the taste, this is drinking a bit young and may improve over time, but its grain heavy as it stands. the brett is nice, more funk than sour, but there is a bit of acid to this that helps cut its rather large body down to size a bit. its well carbonated, but drinks like a loaf of bread rather than an elegant wild ale. i still love the combination of brett and bugs here, its just the right amount, but the base beer is nothing special this time around. this came across to me as a sloppy and less enjoyably hoppy version of hop savant, which i thought was exquisite. meh, ill try it again with some age and look for change.
