2013/Batch 4

A: deep gold beer in my tulip; like with their Veielle, a measured pour yielded about a finger of fine foam. Little-to-no lace.

S: herbal and floral, some citric and yeasty notes; subtle "barnyard" aromas

T: tart but mellow, suggestions of pale dry flowers and grains, funky brett-ish flavors - musty, dank; something like ruby red grapefruit throughout; very distant malt sweetness

M: soft but tart; nice fuzziness on the tongue; crisp, fresh finish

O: well, Crooked Stave is 2-for-2 with saisons in my book. Lots of grapefruity citric flavor here, underscored by the tang and funk of brett (though I don't know if its actually brett - but the taste is there). If this flavor palate is to your liking, then this beer will be, too.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hay/straw in color with a frothy white head.

S - Good amount of bready yeast, slight vinegar & oak aspect. Loving the funk of the nose.

T - The oak is a lot more prominent and tartness to the front. Bready yeasty compliments it perfectly along with a crisp apple character on the finish.

M - Light body, high carbonation. Perfect for the style.

O - Interesting brew that will keep any sour fan interested.
