Poured from a 220z Bomber into New Belgium snifter

A: Pours a great hazy golden color with a white head.

S: The orange flavors really come across. There is also some brett tang in there

T: Wow, there is some great flavor here. Some wonderful orange fades to a slight tartness from the brett. These are extremely poignant flavors that come across really well.

M: Nice and not overbearing. Some great carbonation in there

O: I have loved almost everything from Chad at Crooked Stave. The beers being made there are truly unique and push the boundaries. This one is another example of this. Wonderful flavor and a truly unique experience. Will be keeping one of each of these series so I can eventually drink the rainbow!
