4.18/5 rDev -0.5%
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.

4.11/5 rDev -2.1%
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.
