4.21/5  rDev -2.8%

Thanks to d4radio for some CS goodness

Pours vibrant yellow with a 1-2 fingers of off-white pillowy foam. Decent retention and a little bit of lacing.

Definitely tartness on the nose. Musty white grapes, sour apple and pear with a little wheaty twang.

Very balanced flavor. Has typical brett funkiness, but also a good clean tartness to add more depth. Sour grapes and apples with a lot of drying oak and musty funk. Glad to see some tartness as I generally feel just brett/no sour is boring.

Smooth mouthfeel. Adequate but below normal carbonation. Oak and tartness create a dry finish.

Nice beer. Has good brett character, but also sourness to bring everything together. One of the better Crooked Stave beers I've had as of now.

A - Golden with a light haze and a small white head

S - Tart lemon, light blue cheese funk, and tart vinegar that gives it a good balance of tart and funk 4.5

T - Green apple, lemon peel, white vinegar and light oak. Reminds me a bit of a sour apple juice. Light blue cheese funk near the backend that balances the tartness 4.25

M - Not much carbonation but has a tart bite from the vinegar and tartness. Finish has a light tingle near the end.

O - Tart and lightly funked sour that has a nice apple presence balanced with a slight blue cheese funk

on-tap @ falling rock

Heavy goblet pours - bright straw-orange body, lovely white lace. Lots of citrus, funky grassy goodness, lots of brett notes, vinous white wine, yellow peach, passion fruit. I had a few pours of this, really lovely beer from an impressive brewery.
